1978 Tayana Cutter 37- Price reduction $48,000

The Tayana 37 is a boat designed for tropical sunsets in exotic locations and is one of the most popular off shore cruising vessels of all time.
Her beautiful custom interior, wrapped into traditional double-ender hull with a full keel has been constructed of the finest materials, using the best techniques to ensure that there is no better yacht in her size range on the market.

With care and proper maintenance she will not only prove to be an excellent investment, she will take you cruising anywhere in the world safely and comfortably. This is being proven almost daily. Ocean crossings by Tayana 37 are routine. Circumnavigations have been reported and over 500 of these yachts are the primary homes of their owners.

Lorna doone has recently had her rig inspected and all the spreaders ad chainplates replaced and rebedded. The engines transmission was rebuilt recently, and has a new cutlass bearing and starter battery. She is fully equipped with an extensive amount of tools and spares.
