1972 Banjer 37
The Banjer 37 motorsailer has an iconic and instantly recognisable shape that has something of a cult following in the classic yacht market. Built-in the very early days of GRP production the hull and decks have been heavily over-engineered. The interior is constructed in the same heavy-duty way using solid hardwoods finished in a classic style. This particular motorsailer has been updated to make single-handed sailing easier with all mainsail and genoa lines led aft to the wheelhouse, bow and stern thrusters, updated instruments including AIS receiver. She is being reluctantly sold by the owner who, due to age is finding her a bit too much to handle. Early viewing is recommended.
