Watins 37 1979

We are currently looking at a 79 Watkins 37 in beautiful condition.Anyone out there that has one, would like to hear about it. How they handle, etc. She's not the best performer and to some degree can be a bit tender. At least that's what I hear and read.

I would suggest that you go to the WATKINS OWNERS YAHOO GROUP and check in there... the people there will be more than happy to answer any question you have on a Watkins 36..

Re: Watins 37 1979

I don't have anything useful to add, but I will say we looked at skme Watkins when boat shopping and really liked them! We had a very short list of boats we were interested in, and they were on the list.
Hard to find as much info on them, as with some of the others on our list.
We ended up finding a boat that's not a Watkins, but we're just reminiscing yesterday about a great one that we didn't get because it was the first boat we looked at and how we loved it.
Hope you can find some useful info out there. ☺️

Well, we decided to go another direction and don't think TOO many will dog us about the choice.....
