This Oyster 37 is a fast, comfortable and very seaworthy fast cruiser, designed by Holman & Pye and built to a high standard by Landamores of Wroxham. Golden Phoenix, in her present ownership for twenty years, has been lovingly maintained to the highest standards, continuously improved and as such has become a much-loved part of the family. A great boat that is a pleasure to sail and Clarke & Carter can confirm, by experience, that she will look after you in the very worst conditions. Recently arrived back in the UK from Spain - 700 mile trip at an average speed of 6.5 knots. Asking price reduced!
