General Details

This well maintained J/37 spent the first 12 years of her life in fresh water before making the journey to the West Coast.  She has spent the balance of her time sailing the gentle breezes of the Southern California coastline. 

The J/37 is ideal for those looking for a true dual purpose boat that can be a comfortable cruiser as well as an excellent club racer.  Her interior is open and functional with accommodations for 6 adults.  The design of her hull and layout of cockpit are emblematic of Rod Johnstone's unparalleled understanding of the ergonomics of sailing.



Interior Details
As you enter through the companion way into the main cabin, you will notice the nice open layout.  Immediately to port is the L-shaped galley with Stainless Steel sink, Tasco propane 2-burner stove/oven combination, and large top loading refrigeration box with Adler Barbour refrigeration unit.  Across to starboard is the nav station. The main salon features twin settee's port and starboard with cabinets outboard and  additional storage behind the seat backs.  A center-line drop leaf table offers plenty of space for dinning and doubles as a cover for the engine.  This arrangement affords an unparalleled amount of access for ease of service and ideal placement of the engine directly low and over the keel. The forward cabin features a large v-berth with storage drawers and hanging locker.  The head compartment is accessible from both the main cabin and v-berth areas and features marine toilet, shower, and vanity with sink.  The aft cabin has a large double berth and hanging locker. All interior cushions are brand new as of August of 2012
