1973 Whitby Alberg 37 Offshore Cruising Yawl

19 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

The Alberg 37 is a proven world cruiser but has enough performance under sail for enjoyable coastal cruising. This is one of the few designs which is equally good as an offshore or coastal cruiser. On top of that, they are one of the most beautiful boats on the water. She has been both ways across the Atlantic with her first owners. I bought her in the Virgin Islands, sailed her back to the States and then back and forth around Florida a couple of times. I lived aboard for several years. The yawl rig is out of fashion today but it is ideal for this size of boat and easy to handle, especially short handed or single handed. She sets a lot of sail area when off the wind. She has 10 opening ports (the original aluminum ports have been replaced with bronze) and a big Bomar hatch over the main cabin. There are no deck or hull problems. She has new deck, cabin trunk and cockpit paint and extensive interior refinishing. The icebox has been re-insulated and fitted with Adler-Barber refrigeration. The quarter berth has been converted to an aft-facing navigation station with a slide-out bay for instruments, a chart drawer (quarter fold) and ample bookshelves. The cabinetry has been extensively upgraded, including a bottle locker with stained glass doors, illuminated by a deck prism. The saloon table has removable fiddles to keep dishware in place, the stove is gimbaled and has pot holders and the there is a seatbelt for the cook.
