'Hero', my Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37 is currently sailing in the Caribbean (since July 2021) and is scheduled to return to the US east coast late spring 2023.
She has had all her systems upgraded and improved upon since we purchased her in 2015. We have plans for extensive land travel in the next few years and sadly will be offering her for sale.
'Hero' is perfect for a liveaboard couple, and can accommodate 5-6 for overnights.
Her first owner kept her in freshwater near Burlington, Vermont, for the first 20 years, so she has avoided a lot of saltwater wear. She's a very stable and reliable vessel with classic good looks.
I'm asking $139,000 for 'Hero', my 1992 Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37 cutter.

What is the Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37 sailboat like to sail?
Based on Published Design Ratios for the Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37:
Her Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of 15.6 suggests that she will need a stiff breeze to get her going. In light conditions, unless you've got plenty of time on your hands, motor-sailing may be the way to go.
Her Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 38.8 means that she's likely to benefit from being reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
Her Displacement/Length Ratio of 334 tells us she is clearly a heavy displacement cruising boat. You can load her down with all your cruising gear and equipment and it will hardly affect her waterline.
Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 33.4 suggests that the comfort of her crew in a seaway would be similar to that associated with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.
