1973 MK-II Alberg 37 Yawl MARYNYA For Sale
Visits since 5/21/2011
Hull #123, built in 1973, has many upgrades and custom features. She hasbeen both ways across the Atlantic with her first owners. I bought her in the Virgin Islands, sailed her back to the States and then back and forth around Florida a couple of times. I lived aboard for several years. She is live-aboard ready but needs exterior paint and some work on the rig for serious cruising.
She has a Profurl jib rig with a reefing sail, full-length battens on the main and mizzen with retractable lazy-jacks on the main, free-flying drifter-reacher and mizzen staysail. The auxiliary is a Westerbeke 4-107 in good running condition. The cooling system has been replaced in recent years.
She has a massive anchor cathead with two rollers, fitted with a 35 lb. CQR with 150 ft. of chain and 250 ft. of line plus a 13 lb. Danforth kedge. There is a two-speed manual Simpson Lawrence windless and a 35 lb. Danforth-type storm anchor in a cockpit locker.
The companionway, lazarette and cockpit hatches have been re-planked with teak and midship cleats added for spring-lines. She has 10 opening ports (the original aluminum ports have been replaced with bronze) and a big Bomar hatch over the main cabin.
The house battery bank can carry up to 400 amp-hours (200 currently installed) and there is a 100 amp alternator with a three-stage regulator. The icebox has been re-insulated and fitted with Adler-Barber refrigeration. There is a new three-burner Force-10 range with oven. There is a water heater with both electric and engine heat exchanger and an Electro-San sewage treatment unit.
The quarter berth has been converted to an aft-facing navigation station ith a slide-out bay for instruments, a chart drawer (quarter fold) and ample bookshelves.
Electronics include GPS, Loran, VHF, Classic RDF with compass-mounted antenna, graphic depthsounder and a Kenwood 430 ham radio set with general coverage receiver (no antenna at present). A handheld GPS, handheld VHF and other navigation gear is included. If you want them, I will include a traditional taffrail log (working antique) and a full sized Freiberger sextant.
The cabinetry has been extensively upgraded, including a bottle locker with stained glass doors, illuminated by a deck prism. The main cabin lighting is Alpenglow fluorescent units. The interior upholstery was replaced a few years ago using automotive fabric. The forward bunks are latex foam, the rest polyurethane. She has a 12' Tinker inflatable with sailing rig but in rather poor condition.

Since she has significant maintenance projects pending, I am asking $35,000 US for her.
