The original model in the collaboration between Bill Crealock and Pacific Seacraft, the 37 was introduced in 1980. The Crealock 37' subsequently was inducted into the Sailing Hall of Fame in 1992. She's been the benchmark for world cruisers for 36 years and rightfully so. This voyager shocks even the most experienced sailors in lighter air. While everyone expects a passage maker to perform well in 30 knots of breeze, most are genuinely surprised to see this lively lady tack gracefully in 2-3 knots of true wind.
When you step aboard a Pacific Seacraft, it is obvious why they have the excellent reputation that they do. There are substantial bulwarks with a heavy teak cap rail. The teak joints are hand fitted with butterfly joints. The 30" high, double lifeline stanchions are mounted on the bulwarks to resist moisture intrusion into the deck. The deck hardware is all larger than found on most vessels and is all chrome plated solid bronze- nothing but the best. The list goes on and on, reinforcing with every item the quality, strength and safety crafted into every boat.
Ferenc Mate devoted an entire chapter in his book 'The Worlds' Best Sailboats', to Pacific Seacraft and stated ‘All the Crealock creations are aesthetically sophisticated, ideally proportioned and some of the best handling, most sea kindly boats in the world’.
Our offering is hull number 271 of these fine boats. As a 1994 model year she features a Vinylester hull for blister protection and chromed bronze hardware versus bronze. The laminate interior house sides eliminate water staining and provide a much brighter interior than her predecessors.
“Highlight” has been lovingly maintained by her owners and they part with her sadly, as she has fared them well and protected them over the years. They are now moving on to other adventures in life. Highlight’s condition is certainly above average and reflects the care she has been shown. If you are looking for a clean example of these fine boats she is certainly worthy of your personal inspection. Call and schedule an appointment to see her today!
Beginning in the forward cabin, there is a shelf forward, with double door chain locker access above that at the foot of the 6'6" x 50" offset double berth. Beneath the berth are three drawers and two large storage bin spaces. A dressing seat, vanity and mirror provide a convenient place to put on your flip-flops (or heels!). Storage includes two tall lockers- one hanging and one with shelves- with a shelf above that- on port. There is more louvered cabinet storage along the port hull side and storage behind and beneath the seat. Lighting and ventilation are in abundance, with an overhead hatch, three opening ports, one overhead light and a reading light. Lots of boats have dark forward staterooms, but this certainly isn't one of them!
Moving into the head, which is located next aft to starboard, you will find a fiddled counter with a stainless steel sink, a pull-out shower mixer and a fresh water foot pump. There is louvered door storage behind the sink and head and also below the sink. A drop down teak seat is over the Wilcox manual head. There are several teak grab rails for safety, a large dressing mirror and a teak shower grate with sump. Ventilation and lighting come from a dorade vent, one opening port and an overhead light.
Next aft is the saloon. To port is a 6'4" long settee with storage below it and behind it, and a teak planked magazine rack and storage bins with two brass reading lights above that. Across on starboard is an L-shaped dinette with a teak table that can fold up against the galley bulkhead. An insert can be put in to convert this to a comfortable 6'4" x 50" wide double berth. There is storage below and behind the seating; above that is a teak bookshelf with teak lockers on either end. Two more brass reading lights are located on this side of the cabin. There is an overhead hatch, a dorade vent and six opening ports in the saloon and galley areas.
Aft of the dinette is the U-shaped galley. There is access to dinnerware via the overhead storage cabinet. Beneath that there are two deep stainless steel sinks, with hot and cold pressure water as well as salt and fresh water foot pumps and storage beneath them. Outboard of that there is a cutting board, which cleverly conceals a trash bin. The Force 10 stove, with storage behind it and below it, has an oven as well as a broiler. Aft of that is a large icebox with refrigeration, with hinged lid access and teak storage lockers above.
Across from the galley on the port side is the nav station. The chart table is a comfortable size and there is convenient access to the drop down electrical panel. A wet locker is located beneath the table and there is storage under the seat. There is a tube chart storage locker above the quarter berth for rolled charts. The quarter berth behind that boasts a spacious 7' x 42" wide sleeping area.
