 "Sweet Thing" is the very desirable cutter rig with a shoal draft wing keel. Loaded with many recent cruising additions, she is turn key and ready for any use.  She is an excellent boat for island getaways that will make some lucky couple a great cruising sailboat. She is well equipped with many recent and significant upgrades and has been professionally maintained. She is a true turnkey ready vessel awaiting her new owners to spend many more pleasurable years of cruising.  Her owner recently purchased her, April, had her refitted and equipped for long range cruising, but circumstances have changed.  So this totally updated and well equipped Pacific Seacraft is reluctantly offered for sale.

This is W.I.B. Crealock's most revered design. His classic 37 was recently inducted into the sailing Hall of Fame! Stunning canoe stern, ample overhangs, ideal proportions and lean, sleek lines have made her a true modern classic.
