1977 Rafiki 37 Cutter Sailboat in La Porte, Texas

Stock #222220

The Rafiki 37 is a solidly built bluewater cruiser ready to sail anywhere in the world with confidence! Whether you are looking to daysail or make passages, this boat will take you and a small crew in comfort.

On the interior, you come through the companionway and enter into the U-shaped galley to port. The galley includes a large top and side opening refrigerator, a freezer, a gimbaled two-burner stove/oven, and a double sink with a saltwater foot pump. Starboard and aft there is a comfortable quarter berth for crew or storage with a large navigation table amidships. In the salon, you have a large setee to starboard and a U-shaped dinette to port. Between these two and the quarter berth you have room for 4. Forward is a full head to port and then a spacious front stateroom with a double berth.

On deck, the boat is well outfitted with and ready for offshore work with a secure cockpit with plenty of room to spread out, but limited footwell space to reduce the amount of water needed to drain in rough seas as well as her canoe stern. The wind vane also makes self steerage a breeze even in strong conditions while not pulling a draw on the electrical system!

If you are looking for a bulletproof platform to cruise the world, this may be your boat!
