SOLD – 1981 Roughwater 37 Flybridge


Price Reduced $34,900

A well built flybridge cruiser with tones of space and visibility. A must see before you buy another like boat. A semi-displacement hull that offers better speed than a traditional trawler and better fuel economy then a sport cruiser. The vessel is laid out in such a manner that you have great living space below (6’6 in salon) without sacrificing safety or functionality topsides–virtually unobstructed views from both steering stations, side decks that are wide enough to actually walk around, cabin trunk that isn’t so long that it interferes with operation of ground tackle, an aft cockpit (7’x10′ with huge lazarette) that is spacious enough for fishing and a swim platform that is wide enough to land a dingy and heavy enough to stow same.
