Practical Sailor notes that the Tayana 37 is "one of the most successful of the Taiwan built boats. Her shapely Baltic stern, plank seams molded into the glass hull and lavish use of teak above and below deck have come to epitomize the image that immediately comes to mind when Taiwanese boats are mentioned, Good Old Boat magazine goes on to say that the Tayana 37 is “saucy, comfy, and efficient, as well as the perfect passagemaker". Justifiably, this Robert Perry-designed classic has proven very popular amongst the cruising set, and with over 800 built since 1975 Tayana 37s are seen literally all around the world.

This particular example has always been home ported in CA. While built in 1977, Fidelia wasn't sailed until 1984 and today shows very nicely. The exterior canvas and brightwork is in good shape, the Perkins 4-108 diesel runs like a top and the interior shows well, plus recent mainsail and staysail, new charger and batteries, hauled and bottom painted November 2015.  She's a must see for anyone in the market for a bluewater-capable classic at a competitive price.

She's lying in a Sausalito Yacht Harbor slip that might be transferable, this is a material benefit if able to take advantage, there's a long wait to get into this marina at present.

Fidelia is one of the most competitively priced Tayana 37s on the market; this in no way reflects the condition of the vessel (she's well above standard) but only the owner's desire to move on to other projects.

Accommodations and Layout

Very large double berth forward with hanging locker forward, full head with stall shower slightly aft to port with hanging locker across. Aft to salon with L-shaped settee with drop leaf dinette port, straight settee opposite, cushions recovered in tasteful dark green velour, traditional buterfly hatch above. Far aft port is galley, centerline companionway with nav table and quarter berth starboard.

Note the Tayana 37 is very spacious down below with 6'5 headroom and beam carried almost entire length of the vessel. Also note interior is finely fitted out in lovely solid teak; while the Tayana 37s are still being built, they now have far less teak because of the prohibitive cost (both material AND labor) entailed in doing fine joinerwork.
