These Robert Perry designed Pilothouse Tayana 37’s are hard to find and well-coveted, and for good reason. Robert Perry is one of the most prolific and well-respected designers of bluewater cruisers, and is credited with the creation of the performance-cruiser sector. The Tayana 37 is considered one of his best, and the Pilothouse version has special appeal.
It was designed by Bob Perry and introduced in 1975 as a response to the Westsail 32 which were selling in enormous numbers at the time. Today looking back, with the boat still in production with a boat count of 588, most still sailing, and an active and owners community, its very apparent that Perry succeeded.
This example, HORIZONS, is well maintained for a 1981 vintage, and looks to be a great foundation for further improvements. She has her original Perkins diesel, with 3250 hours on her, with basic electronics like Furuno Radar, two GPS units and autopilot. She comes with a watermaker and bowthruster.
Her interior has two enclosed cabins and one head, and her pilothouse has a full sized navigation table. She sports a new Gennaker, mainsail, jib and 135% Genoa. She appears to be well loved and well-maintaned, and listed at $63K in Vancouver, she shouldn’t be on the market long.
