2012 F&W 37 Daysailer “Untide”

February 4th, 2013

2sStyled with traditional lines and built of modern cold-molded wood construction, the F&W 37 rises to the top of the fleet in beauty, performance, and comfort.  The lean hull shape with balanced ends defines fast, responsive performance combined with great looks.  Stability derives from a 4,400 pound fin keel below while a 46′ carbon fiber rig carries the fully battened main and self-tacking headsail.  The classic cockpit was designed for total comfort and ease of line handling and can be enjoyed for single-handed sailing or with a full complement of friends. Built to the highest standard with no compromise, the F&W 37 is the pinnacle of the new breed of New England daysailer.
