1978 Endeavour 37 for sale in Fort Lauderdale.
She has been sitting for a couple of years, but looked after:
Engine started and ran every month, batteries charged, oil and filters changed, etc.
The boat is pretty basic, no fancy equipment, no flash, but should be a good solid boat for a young couple or young single wanting to see what is the beyond the horizons:
Not my boat, selling it for a friend who is not internet savvy and does not speak much English. I have been looking after the boat here in Fort Lauderdale for a couple of years and have the logs and receipts for maintenance and such.
In a nutshell: The boat had a new engine installed a couple of years ago: A 45 HP, 4 cylinder diesel. The tranny is also new and so is the fuel tank and fuel lines and some electrical stuff.
The rig has some new wires and has been looked after by a rigger, sails has been serviced. (Roller main, hank-on jib)
Running rigging is in bad shape due to sun and rain exposer, but will be replaced in a week or two.
The interior needs some work as the counter tops have been replaced, but some of the trim is still lacking or need attention.
New SS ports around the cabin house, but evidence of previous leaks on the inside.
Air Condition is installed but not working good right now, probably needs Freon and calibration. (A real cruiser will probably rip the system out and use the space for storage, then sell the compressor and pieces on ebay)
New electric bilge pumps with switches, panels and wiring. (Dual)
A few pictures included, but best to inspect the boat if serious, or have it surveyed.
Asking price is $30,000.00. Offers encouraged.
Link to Practical Sailors blurb on the Endeavour 37:
The Endeavour Yacht Corp. was founded in 1974, and its first model was a 32-footer, built in molds given to it by Ted Irwin. Yup, the Endeavour 32 has the same hull as the Irwin 32. Its second model was the Endeavour 37, based on a smaller, little known Lee Creekmore hull that was cut in half and extended. It?s not the prettiest boat in the world, and not very fast, but heavily built. Owners report no structural problems with the single-skin laminate hull. It has a long, shoal-draft keel and spade rudder. What helped popularize the Endeavour 37 was the choice of layouts: an aft cabin with a quarter berth, a V-berth and quarterberth, and a (rare) two aft-cabin model. Production ended after 1983. Prices are around $50,000.
