Tayana 37 Voyager

Probably the finest example of this well-known blue-water cruiser, this boat is fully found for extended voyaging. With huge stowage and high output energy and water making systems, she is a proven self sufficient cruising yacht. Continuously maintained and cared for, she has been significantly upgraded since 1995. Easily managed and comfortably arranged for a couple to live aboard and cruise anywhere.

  In our opinion, everything necessary to make Oasis a seaworthy, safe and self-sufficient cruising boat has now been completed. After 2 Atlantic Crossings and 2 seasons cruising in the Caribbean, she has to be one of the best equipped 37' sailboats afloat. Her stowage capacity defies belief, and her energy and water-making systems mean she could be self sufficient for many months without re-provisioning.
