Boat Description

Wooden Ships comments on this 37' Robert Clark Sloop
This boat is a fine example of a classic Robert Clark designed sloop. Having had only 2 owners since new and being under the current ownership for more than 40 years she has been professionally maintained to a very high standard throughout her life. The design has been well proven and she has earned a good reputation when racing in the early years and been extensively cruised under the current family ownership; spending time cruising in European waters including the Baltic.
Subject to an extensive programme of maintenance during the last 25 years she has had considerable sums spent maintaining her in very much original trim. Some upgrading has been undertaken to make life at sea easier for the crew including a roller furling genoa, modern jabsco type sea toilet and deck wash system. In great original condition above and below decks she would be ideally suited to somebody interested in competing in some Classic Yacht Regattas or rallies. The original build drawings and scantlings along with a number of design reviews from the time of her build are held by the owner and available to view upon request.
She has been cruising throughout the 2017 season and viewing is highly recommended for anybody looking for a classic yacht.

Rigged as a masthead sloop the boat was originally fitted with all timber spars. The original timber mast was replaced with an anodised alloy spar in 1964, the boat retains the original timber spar for the boom.
