El Dorado is a Gozzard 37 with the 37A model layout and is being sold by her original owner. This solidly built and beautifully crafted yacht was designed for a liveaboard offshore cruising lifestyle. She easily handles all kinds of weather conditions.
Details like the satin varnished interior cherry joinery and beautiful hull lines help set this yacht apart from the average production boat. The unique transom looks traditional but folds down, revealing a walkthru with steps and a stainless steel boarding ladder that makes dinghy access simple.
New Beta 50 engine, new shaft, and prop (2018).

The hull is constructed with knitted double bias E-glass RM (0-90) and XM (45-45) cloth and cored with 1/2" SPS Corecell foam using both vacuum bagging and hand-laid techniques. The core is eliminated and replaced with solid glass laminate in high load areas including sheer line, centerline, keel, rudderpost, and thru-hulls.
The decks were designed with ease of use. They feature wide low cambered side decks and bulwarks for sure footing in healing conditions. The deck is molded FRP sandwich construction with 1/2" and 3/4" SPS Corecell with extra solid fiberglass laminate in high load areas.
The rudder shaft is 1 1/2" in diameter 316 stainless steel. The rudder is constructed with a stainless web that is welded to the shaft. It is heavily glassed to one of the two 1/4" fiberglass skin halves. The foils are then cored and assembled together. The cosmetic joint between the two skins is glassed over and faired. 3M 5200 is used where the rudder shaft exits the rudder to prevent water intrusion. The entire rudder is coated with Interprotect 3000 barrier coat. Emergency tiller is stored in a custom holder under teh aft cockpit locker lid.
The skeg is made much like the rudder except considerably heavier. It has a stainless steel bolt spider that is permanently bolted using epoxy to the hull.
All main or structural bulkheads are constructed with cored fiberglass laminates that are very strong and rot-resistant. The main bulkhead has a cherry veneer face. The bulkheads are glassed to the hull and later the deck when it is installed. The interior has a closed grid structure that combines the stringers and the floor assemblies. Whenever possible all wooden structures are glassed to the hull or deck to minimize unsupported panel size.
The hull deck joint is bedded in 3M 5200 and bolted on 6" centers with 5/16" stainless steel machine bolts with aircraft type nuts.
There are full-length FRP rub rails installed approximately 18" below the cap rail. It includes a 316 stainless steel striker plate.
There is external lead ballast is attached to cover the entire length of the keel bottom.
Below the waterline, there is an Interprotect 2000 barrier coat.
All exterior woodwork is all Asian Teak. There are teak cap rails with the signature stylized dolphins midships.
The Gozzard 37 interior layout has become legendary for the beautiful cherry finish and absolutely innovative open concept design. El Dorado has the A plan layout that includes a two-place dinette with a separate nav station and a freezer over refrigeration box arrangement.
The forward cabin/salon easily converts from a large centerline queen size berth to dining for 6 at the large table, to a comfortable settee area with coffee table. Behind the settee backs are storage areas for the large dinette table and plenty more. More storage aft of the seats both port and starboard. The midship bulkhead is hinged to easily convert the forward salon into a private stateroom.
Next aft to port is the forward-facing navigation station. The refrigeration/freezer cabinet is just aft.
On the starboard side is the dinette followed by the L-shaped galley.
Aft on the port side is the head with a separate shower stall.
Recessed sinks in head and galley with backsplashes. Countertops are cultured marble.
Aft on the starboard side is the aft cabin with king-size berth.
There are built-in screens for ports and hatches and curtains for all ports. The companionway has an overhead sliding screen and separate companionway screen doors (fold-in).
