1977 Tayana Cutter

San Pedro, United States


The Tayana 37' is a much respected bluewater design from the desk of Robert Perry, and "Pyxis" is a true veteran of the Pacific, having cruised to Australia and New Zealand under the stewardship of her prior skipper. She's been meticulously maintained and upgraded by her current owners whose plans of casting off the lines in their retirement and cruising to distant ports have now changed.

Take advantage of the upgrades already in place - bow thruster, watermaker, solar power .. she was repowered in 2000, she's been rewired, and so much more. No boat is completely perfect, but this comes very close. Check out the specs and the detailed pics then call the listing broker for your appointment to view!
