The boat is powered with twin 3208 Caterpillar 320 hp Diesels straight inboards. The port engine was removed due to a oil pan failure several years ago and the block and accessories were rebuilt by a Caterpillar dealer located in Fairhaven MA. The amount to remove the engine and rebuild the engine totalled $18,000.00 plus. The starboard engine was running well at the time and has 1200 original hours.
New Westerbeake Generator Notes
There is a brand new generator lying on her bed manufactured by Westerbeake. It is a 9.0 KW that has yet to be wired up and lighted off. The cost of this generator new would exceed $12,000.00 in todays market. All plumbing and wire harness from old generator still in tact.
There are a total of (4) fuel tanks in the boat. The (2) main tanks are located on the outside of each engine and apparently hold 200 gallons each. There are (2) reserve tanks that are located under the cockpit that hold 50 gallons each.
The water tank is stainless and located under the master berth.
Galley Up Lay-Out
The 37 South Bay listed has been out the water for about 5 years. Her gel coat is in need of being washed and waxed. Walking around her decks, her decks feel sturdy with an occasion soft spot but over all not, too bad. Her cabin is in good shape aside from needing a good cleaning. There are two rotted teak veneer panels on the starboard side that need to be replaced. We suspect that a window leaked or was left open at one point and led to deterioration of the wood.
The cabins below are in very good shape and show no real signs of neglect or further leaks. The quality of the cabinetry and floors shows up quite well. The mattress are in good shape and will serve an owner and guests many years to come.
The engine room is in need of sprucing up. While the port engine is out it would be easy for one to wash and detail the engine room and her bulkheads and stringers. Obvioulsy the new generator glistens with her new original paint.
