The Alberg 37 is a proven world cruiser but has enough performance under sail for enjoyable coastal cruising and weekend racing. This is one of the few designs which is equally good as an offshore or coastal cruiser. In addition, they are one of the most beautiful boats on the water. “Marynya” has been both ways across the Atlantic with her first owners. The current owner bought her in the Virgin Islands, sailed her back to the States and then back and forth around Florida a couple of times. There are no known hull or deck problems. She has a Pro-furl jib rig with a reefing sail, full-length battens on the main and mizzen with retractable lazy-jacks on the main, free-flying drifter-reacher and mizzen staysail. The auxiliary is a Westerbeke 4-107 in good running condition. She has a massive anchor cathead with two rollers, fitted with a 35 lb. CQR with 150 ft. of chain and 250 ft. of line plus a 13 lb. Danforth kedge. There is a two-speed manual Simpson Lawrence windless and a 35 lb. Danforth-type storm anchor in a cockpit locker. The plywood inserts in the companionway, lazzarette and cockpit hatches have been replaced with solid teak planking and midship cleats added for spring-lines. She has 10 opening ports (the original aluminum ports have been replaced with bronze) and a big Bomar hatch over the main cabin. She has new deck, cabin trunk and cockpit paint along with extensive interior refinishing. The house battery bank can carry up to 400 amp-hours (200 currently installed) and there is a 100 amp alternator with a three-stage regulator. The icebox has been re-insulated and fitted with 12 volt refrigeration (the machinery has been recently replaced). There is a new three-burner Force-10 propane range with oven. There is a water heater with both electric and engine heat exchanger and a Lectra-San sewage treatment unit. There is a 50 gal. water tank in the bow and an additional 35 gal. tank in the bilge which could be converted to a holding tank. The fuel tank holds 30 gallons. The quarter berth has been converted to an aft-facing navigation station with a slide-out bay for instruments, a chart drawer (quarter fold) and ample bookshelves. This serves as a desk in port. Electronics include fixed VHF and depthsounder plus a handheld GPS and VHF. The cabinetry has been extensively upgraded, including a bottle locker with stained glass doors, illuminated by a deck prism. The main cabin lighting is Alpenglow fluorescent units. The interior upholstery was replaced a few years ago using automotive fabric. The forward bunks are latex foam, the rest polyurethane. There is a 12' Tinker inflatable dinghy with a sailing rig which is in poor condition but could probably be used as a tender with some patching.
