The Boat

The current Yacht is a Bavaria 37 Cruiser called SCORCHER IV. Constructed in 2006 with a D2-40 Volvo Penta marine engine attached to a 130s saildrive, currently there is a two blade fixed propeller but that is shortly about to change to a two blade Gori folding propeller.

The Yacht has three double cabins and one heads on the starboard side forward, a good size chart table on the starboard side and a galley on the port side.

Dimensions

LOA             37'2"

LWL              32'2"

Beam           12'5"

Draught         5'7"

Late last summer for no apparent reason the existing two blade fixed propeller decided to abandon ship, fortunately just outside the marina before the sails where set. Turns out this is a common problem, Insurance Company "Yachtline" where superb and the propeller was soon replaced.
