The Alberg 37 remains a popular boat for cruising enthusiasts. Originally designed as a racer/cruiser, it has become known today as a medium-heavy displacement, well balanced seaworthy cruiser. Although production was stopped in 1988 (due mainly to the 1987 recession) 248 boats were built and there is still a very active Alberg 37 club. The interior is roomy, light, and bright. 'Estoril' has been cruised extensively throughout the Caribbean during recent years and is “sail away” ready for her next adventure.
