The Rafiki 37 is a traditional, full keel, world cruiser. This boat was prepared and provisioned for an endless voyage. Unfortunately the pandemic has altered course for this adventurous couple. With a solid suit of sails, strong diesel engine, and newer standing rig she is ready for her next adventure.

As with most of the Taiwanese built boats there is an abundance of quality teak. The solid and robust interior and exterior joinery has great potential to be truly breathtaking. The plan was to work on these projects once they were underway until the pandemic thwarted those plans.
The layout is very functional for a couple with occasional guests. There is loads of storage and cabinetry for long term off the grid living.
The traditional design, construction, and cutter rig make this boat more comfortable than many when the going gets rough. She's no racing machine but she is stout, seaworthy and will certainly do average mileage per day.
At this price point Bangers n Mash is an opportunity to go simple, go now and go anywhere. She is not without some projects but then no sailboat ever will be.
