Nauticat 37

Siltala Yachts Oy, Riihikoski, Finland






36' 11"

Sail area

807 sq ft

Brief details


33' 1"



Despite the name the Nauticat 37 is not a catamaran, but a beautifully finished serious cruising yacht from Siltala Yachts of Finland. The design is clearly aimed at "two couples" sailing, with two really good sleeping cabins and two heads. The raised aft deck gives one of the best island berth aft cabins of any yacht of her size - and also many bigger yachts. This 2002 example has in-mast reefing, electric winches and a near-new full suite of Raymarine electronics. Ashore in Cumbria, but due to be relaunched fairly shortly.

Siltala Yachts was founded in the 1950s, but made it's name with tough seaworthy motor-sailers in the 1960s, starting with the Nauticat 33. From the 1990s onwards they launched a parallel range of designs to these motor-sailers with modern sailing hull forms and much better sailing performance. The first of these were the Nauticat 39 and 42, and in 2002 a completely new design, the Nauticat 37 was introduced. The Nauticat 37 was designed by Kaj and Patrik Gustafsson, and this yacht for sale is hull no 1 from 2002.

Nauticat 37s are semi-custom boats, with a number of choices of accommodation layouts and rigs. This yacht has a superb double aft cabin, with en-suite heads, and a spacious double forecabin with separate heads. The raised seating position in the deck saloon offers good views around when seated. The interior is beautifully finished in teak, with lots of storage lockers. With a second engine control in the deck saloon, and autopilot control via the MFD plotter screen, the boat can also be helmed from inside.

The hull has a deep lead keel and rudder on a partial skeg, with feathering prop and a bowthruster. The rig is a sloop rig with a second "Solent stay" forestay just aft of the forestay, both of which have roller reefing. The two primary cockpit winches are electric, and the mainsail is in-mast, also with an electric halyard winch.

Saloon aft
Saloon table

The Nauticat 37 is clearly designed to be sailed by a couple, with another couple as guests,
but if required the saloon table can be removed and infill boards and cushions put in place to form

another double berth. The wooden seat seen below by the chart table adjusts to two heights:

one height as an extra dining seat, and lowers as a chart table/internal helm seat.

It straps down to lugs in the floor if necessary.

Chart table and instruments

The engine bay is under the deck saloon flooring, with a double layer of boards separating it from the

accommodation to reduce noise. There are 900 AH of AGM batteries, plus a separate 150AH

engine start battery, all batteries new in 2021.

Aft cabin

Aft cabin with en-suite heads: there is a TV and CD/DVD player mounted on

the aft face of one of the large hanging lockers

Bow detail

This yacht is fitted with a 'Solent stay' twin headsail rig: the outer roller furler foil has a larger headsail for lighter winds, and in stronger winds this can be furled and the smaller, heavier sail on the inner foil used. Dead downwind you could also set both headsails goosewinged.

Cockpit forward

This is a really impressive and very well equipped cruising yacht: whilst capable of being singlehanded, she also offers considerable comfort for a couple with guests, in accommodation that is hand-built in teak to very high standards - the joinery is every bit as good as on Hallberg-Rassys.
