Description

Banjer 37 For Sale.

An attractive and well built Dutch pilothouse motor sailor, with excellent sea-keeping capabilities and a surprisingly good turn of speed.

Banjer 37's have a very enthusiastic following, with a number having circumnavigated or achieving long-distance voyages. The good visibility and a well-protected pilothouse, also make them ideal for extended season cruising in coastal and home waters.

A tough boat built to Lloyd's specification. The hull and superstructure were moulded by Polyboats of Amsterdam and the minimum hull thickness is half of an inch.

This particular example, Albatros, was extensively re-fitted in 2013-2017.

Albatros is one of the nicest sailing yachts I`ve had the pleasure to sail, very sea kindly and safe.
The very spacious deep self-draining cockpit has a table that slots in place when required.
The addition of the stern thruster takes all the worry out of those dodgy tight mooring situations
She motors comfortably at 7 knots (about 0.5l litre/hour)

History of Abatros

For the first 20 years she lived in Germany being laid up under cover every winter.
My predecessor bought her then sailed back to Faversham. This was his only voyage. Unfortunately, his partner passed away and for sentimental reasons Albatross was laid up ashore for approx. 12 years. I purchased her in 2013. Various trips to Holland, Belgium France and the Thames estuary have endeared me to her. Regrettably, age forces me to now move on.
