Fantastic riding boat. I mated on one for 5 years and never felt unsafe even in the absolute worst conditions. It is a more efficient/faster version of the legendary Duffy 35, and has a lot more cabin space. It is great on the ball and in a beam sea, and it eats up any other sea condition. The one I mated on was powered with a C9 CAT ~700hp. It cruised anywhere from 21-23kts and topped out over 30kts. At cruise it was a 1mpg boat with virtually any load. I love the 37, and if I can ever afford it, will certainly own one over many other DE's in that size range.
