Puma 37 was designed by the famous boat builder Angus Primrose. He applied his criteria of robustness and comfort to Puma that he got world-renowned for as the leading designer of the British Moody sail yachts in the 70s. Angus Primrose went missing at sea in 1980 and the Puma 37 was launched only a few years later. With the much upgraded “Future” model in 1985. All keeping with Primrose idea and design.
The British influence is strong, and space combined with a good sailing pedigree is well taken care of.
The Puma 37 Future model incorporated smart modifications, increased the manoeuvrability and the interior distribution compared with the original Puma 37. This included a bigger galley with a walkthrough to the main aft cabin. They reinforced the already strong hull structure. They also added an amazing swim platform. The boat was presented at the Barcelona Boat show in 1985. Base model was priced at 10.000.000 pst (60.000€) in 1985. It was sold about 50 of these boats, most still in use today, and several of them have successfully sailed around the world.
With its Center cockpit layout you get a good sizes aft cabin with its own toilet. A spacious salon with 2.05-meter headroom, a big galley, a nice V berth cabin in the front and a 3rdcabin with bunk beds. The salon can convert into a double bed. Your guests never have to crawl into a low aft cabin. Here they will have their own and spacious cabin. You can sleep 8 people, but we would say 6 people comfortably. For 4 people this is a dream.
The salon and cockpit cushions were ordered new in late 2017. The interior was painted white to open the space of the boat with offers a light and fresh feel to the living space.
Continuing up to the cockpit you have a spacious centre cockpit with a folding cockpit table. There is a smart addition to the table that goes around the helm that converts the cockpit into a dining space that will easily accommodate 7-8 people. Aft of the cockpit you have a day bed. Perfect for relaxing on when the sun is shining.
For added comfort, the boat comes with a Sprayhood, Bimini and a full cockpit cover.
A full survey of the boat was completed in September 2017. It came back very positive with a few recommended upgrades. After this survey, a lot of work was completed on her including the recommended upgrades. This Included taking down all the trimmings and woodwork to sand and varnish, the interior of the boat was painted white with strong waterproof paint. The hull was washed and polished back to white.
The boat was lifted most recently in April 2019 for a new full check, new antifouling and we also changed a seacock and had a service to the rudder. Done by professionals.
