Broker Remarks

Steel Colin Archer 37 foot sailing yacht for sale. 

BLUE HERRON is an incredibly robust Colin Archer designed cutter built in 1984 and launched in 1990.  This is a boat that is begging to be taken on an adventure and is just about straining her mooring to do so.

The wheelhouse helm position combined with cockpit tiller steering and a bow thruster will allow her to navigated safely in any conditions.  You don’t have to pay extra to keep dry.

One look at her rig and you just know it isn’t coming down; add to that the windvane steering and the large sail wardrobe and once again BLUE HERRON makes you want to jab your finger on a fast spinning globe and see where you will end up.

This 37 foot steel hulled cruising yacht would sleep up to five but will ideally suit a couple who wish to cruise long distance.

The wheelhouse whilst functional would benefit from an update and the fitting of some furniture for seating.  The interior upholstery also needs an update - otherwise this steel boat ready to go.
