Gwynfa, a Gozzard 37A model layout, is being sold by her original owner. This solidly built and beautifully crafted yacht was designed for a liveaboard cruising lifestyle. She has cruised Maine, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. Gwynfa is fully equipped for both offshore and coastwise sailing and can handle all kinds of weather conditions.
Beautiful hull lines and satin varnished interior cherry joinery help set this yacht apart from the ordinary production boat. Inventive features include the inviting, wide-open interior, with three use options for the forward space. This space can convert from a salon to a bedroom to a dining area.
The unique transom looks traditional but folds down, revealing a walkthru with a stainless steel boarding ladder that makes dinghy access simple.
Gwynfa is a head-turner wherever she is seen. From stem to stern, her many special touches reflect the design wizardry of the master architect Ted Gozzard.
- Fuel: 70 gal. aluminum (55 in main and 15 in the reserve tank)
- Water: 121 gal. fiberglass (51 stbd. bow and 70 stbd. aft plus 11 in hot water heater). The water tanks are constructed using vinyl ester and lined with an FDA approved epoxy barrier
- Waste: 26 gal. fiberglass
The Gozzard 37 interior layout has become legendary for its innovative open-concept design and for the beautiful cherry finish.
Gwynfa's has the 37A model layout as described below.
Starting forward is the main cabin/salon that easily converts from:
- a comfortable settee area with a coffee table
- to a large centerline double berth
- to a large dining table that seats six persons.
Behind the settee backs are storage for the large dining table on the starboard side and eight bottles of wine or spirits on the port side. Outboard of the settees are cantilevered bookshelves both port and starboard. There is more storage aft of the settees on both port and starboard. And the bilge is easily accessed under the coffee table.
Aft on the starboard side of the salon is a Force 10 propane cabin heater with a decorative tile heat reflector custom-designed for Gwynfa by Ted Gozzard.
The midship bulkhead is hinged to easily convert the forward salon into a private stateroom.
Next aft to port is the forward-facing navigation station. Aft of it is the refrigeration/freezer cabinet.
On the starboard side are the two-place dinette and L-shaped galley, both with ample storage spaces.
Aft on the port side is the head with a separate shower stall, a recessed sink, and a large mirror. A multicolor cultured marble countertop blends beautifully with a cherrywood vanity. Cabinets and four drawers provide storage for towels, toiletries, and first aid supplies.
Aft on the starboard side is a king-size berth that can also serve as a storage area.

The hull is constructed with knitted double bias E-glass RM (0-90) and XM (45-45) cloth and cored with 1/2" SPS Corecell foam using both vacuum bagging and hand-laid techniques. The core is eliminated and replaced with solid glass laminate in high load areas including the sheer line, centerline, keel, rudder post, and thru-hulls. External lead ballast is joined to the entire length of the keel bottom.
The decks were designed for ease of use. They feature wide low-cambered side decks and bulwarks for sure footing in heeling conditions. The deck mold is FRP sandwich construction with 1/2" and 3/4" SPS Corecell with extra solid fiberglass laminate in high load areas.
The hull deck joint is bedded in 3M 5200 and bolted on 6" centers with 5/16" machine bolts with aircraft-type nuts.
There are full-length FRP rub rails installed approximately 18" below the cap rail.
The rudder shaft is 1 1/2" diameter 316 stainless steel. The rudder is constructed with a stainless web that is welded to the shaft. It is heavily glassed to one of the two 1/4" fiberglass skin halves. The foils are then cored and assembled together. The cosmetic joint between the two skins is glassed over and faired. To prevent water intrusion 3M 5200 is used where the rudder shaft exits the rudder. The entire rudder was coated with Interprotect 3000 barrier coat. An emergency tiller is stored in a custom cutout under one of the cockpit locker lids.
The skeg is built much like the rudder except considerably heavier. A stainless steel bolt spider is permanently bolted with epoxy to the hull.
All main or structural bulkheads are constructed with cored fiberglass laminates that are strong and rot-resistant. The main bulkhead has a cherry veneer face. The bulkheads are initially glassed to the hull and subsequently to the deck. The interior has a closed-grid structure that combines stringers and floor assemblies. Whenever possible, all wooden structures are glassed to the hull or deck to minimize unsupported panel size.
