Pacific Trawlers are revered for being rock solid and extremely capable vessels. Built in the Pacific Northwest, these seaworthy long range cruisers are equally at home Northwest waters/weather conditions, cruising the Great Loop or island hopping in Southern seas. The 37 Pilothouse is a perfect live aboard for the cruising couple with a wandering spirit, and she can sleep up to three additional guests when called upon. She is very economical to operate, boasts an abundance of storage (above & below deck) and is as functional as a Swiss army knife.
Please see “MORE DETAILS” for a comprehensive vessel Overview & Description.
The Pacific Trawler 37 began production in the mid 1970's in California. Later between 1997 – 2003, the boats were produced in Washington state. Many of these rock solid trawlers are still providing excellent service today.
The Pacific Trawlers 37 is an extremely capable vessel, considered by many veteran loopers & island hoppers to be the perfect size. Built in the Pacific Northwest for cruising in Northwest waters, her stable, seaworthy hull is at home in all kinds of weather conditions and sea states. Her low profile and center of gravity make her perfect for the Loop. She is fuel sipping too, burning a mere 2.4 gallons per hour at 8 knots, allowing economically cruising for extended periods of time. The 37 has more living space than virtually all other trawlers of her size. There is plenty of storage space (above & below deck) available for food and gear. A wonderful live aboard, perfect for the cruising couple, yet the 37 can accommodate up to three additional guests (two in the salon double recliner and one in the pilot house seat/day watch bunk).
The Pacific Trawlers 37 is built with incredible detail, with features including water tight bulkheads, water tight hatches & doors, aircraft style labeled wiring and redundant systems. These are terms used most often when describing highline yachts and commercial vessels. If extended travel is your purchase objective, it is prudent to begin the purchase decision with the hull. The 37’s flared bow as an example which illustrates this point. The dramatic flare to her bow is not just a styling cue used to remove her from the pack of look a-like pleasure tugs on the market. It is actually an important design feature which accomplishes several important functions. The flare does direct spray outward and down when at speed, but it also does more. The base of the bow is sharp and crisp, promoting a smooth and sharp entry through the water. Once the water is parted by her narrow entry, the wave rides up her bow and brings her reserve buoyancy in to play. The vessel is fighting to stay high and level by design. There is a reason that sea going vessels have departed from the old plumb bows of the past. Powering a hull design through the water is not nearly as smooth, and produces significantly more spray on the glass than the Pacific Trawlers hull. This is a feature that sets the Pacific Trawlers apart from other boats in her class. A working tug has a blunt plumb bow for a reason. They are designed to overcome wave action and displace water in order to provide a more resistant free path for the barge to follow. They overcome these forces with brute force (ultra-high output engines), huge propellers, and sheer mass....displacement--many tons of cement, lead, or iron in the bilge. It just makes more sense when designing a pleasure yacht, to design it from the keel up, with the smoothest possible entry, graduating to a flared bow, and hard chines, as well as a keel. All this works to provide a jar-free entry, and a cruise that limits roll to the highest possible degree when at hull speed. When waves are abeam, or on the rear quarter, the flatter stern area allows the pilot to over power the throttle a little bit, dropping the stern in the water and driving just a bit beyond her hull speed, making the boat "squat". This makes her hull really work as designed and limit roll. The reserve power with her engine also allows her operator to maintain higher propeller speeds in following seas, which keeps the water speed higher over her rudder. This simply means being able to steer her in following seas. The 37 handles like a dream by design.
While her lines add beauty, they also are borne from traditional, proven designs which along with her other characteristics, ensure security and comfort to all who are fortunate enough to cruise her. Components and systems can all be changed, but your experience on the water is most influenced by the integrity and design of the hull. If a boat looks top heavy and prone to be adversely affected by wind, etc.--then most likely it is. If a boat looks like a roller, then it most likely is. Arguably, a properly designed hull should not have to depend on add-ons like stabilizers. It should have the ability to provide reliable and safe passages by its very design.
Additionally, the hull and layout should provide a solid foundation for what lies within. This hull has numerous sealed watertight compartments. The hull not only houses living areas and mechanical systems, it can provide additional safety features, and also provide access to the systems it is fitted with. An example is where the batteries are located. It is a simple fact that if the batteries are shoved outboard of a twin engine vessel, jammed between fuel tanks, that they will not be checked as often as they should. If they are readily accessible, then those aboard are more likely to wiggle the terminals when other engine room checks are performed, and the electrolite level in wet cell batteries is more likely to be checked if you can easily fit your head, and necessary light, over the fill holes in order to inspect them.
Movement about the vessel should be unobstructed and safe. A great example of this feature on a Pacific Trawler are safety rails, which are formed in a way as you climb the steps to the upper decks, that allows you to move straight up the steps, without going up or down sideways. It is not an issue when you are looking at a boat at a show, but it is major issue when hauling propane tanks or other gear up those same steps. Placement of a simple item like the shore power connection is so very important, but seldom noticed at the shows. The shore power connection on the Pacific Trawler is under the steps which lead top sides. You can reach the connection from the dock, and it is not in any foot path on deck. This means you don't have to dangle the wire on the safety rails, leave it there and climb aboard to retrieve it and plug it in to the boat. Leaving a shore power cord unattended while you climb aboard presents both safety and mechanical (electrical) concerns. Having a high voltage cord which crosses a footpath on board presents a clear safety hazard, yet is accepted by so many yacht builders. You can buy many things, and you can pay for many features, but these are just a few of the hundreds of design features that make your yachting experience both safer and so much more enjoyable. It does not cost a penny more to marry experience and logic with effort. Pacific Trawlers proved that with this extraordinary 37 footer.
A Pacific trawler is a great barefoot boat. You will find that cleats are placed vertically, above the footing surfaces which make these yachts virtually toe-stubber free. While the Pacific Trawlers 37 has one main generous stateroom with an island queen, she sleeps 3 more in a convertible full queen (which can be completely isolated from the rest of the yacht by a generous privacy curtain), and a true pilot berth single in the pilothouse.
The raised pilothouse offers exceptional visibility in all directions and features split wing doors, allowing for the top half to be open for the views and fresh air, and the bottom halves to be closed for safety. Watertight hatches provide security both when she is unattended in anchorages and marinas, but also at sea, should heavy weather be encountered. The 37 carries a 187 square foot upper deck (with non-skid surfaces), which is more than adequate for carrying kayaks, bicycles, jet skis, crab pots and more. The optional davit is handy and always ready to raise and lower your dinghy & gear. A keel, along with stainless steel girders protect the propeller, and sealed, watertight compartments designed and integrated throughout the vessel hull add peace of mind to your journeys.
So much needs to be taken in to consideration when acquiring a vessel….safety, performance & economy of operation, functionality, practicality, layout and livability, etc. The Pacific Trawlers 37 was clearly designed and built by those that have been there and back.
The Master Stateroom, forward, has a queen-size island berth w/ storage below and two large cedar lined hanging lockers. Step up four steps to the Pilothouse w/ pilot berth/bench seat. The elevated Pilothouse features large windshield, side and aft windows, allowing panoramic 360-degree visibility for safe operation. Going aft, down two steps, the Pilothouse opens to the Galley (port) and Main Salon (just aft of galley) The roomy Head, across to starboard from the Galley, has a stall shower & vanity. The Main Salon features a Dual Love Seat Recliner. Samsung 32” Flat Screen TV. The interior features reverse cycle heating and cooling.
