Marsh Hen Shoal Draft Lobster Picnic Boat for sale


1980, Alberg 37, Yawl
Asking Price: $39,500 / Location: Brooklin, Maine

THULE is a shapely Alberg 37, the bigger sister of the popular Alberg 30 and 35. The Alberg 37 was designed in the mid-1960s by Swedish-born Carl Alberg (1900-1986) for Kurt Hansen’s Whitby Boat Works in Canada. Originally designed as a racer cruiser, the Alberg 37 is better known today as a medium-heavy displacement blue water capable cruiser. She’s strong, seaworthy, and best of all very affordable.

Introduced in 1967, the boat came in sloop and (like THULE) yawl options and was popular enough to enjoy an update to the MkII model (as is THULE) which primarily improved the interior layout and streamlined production. A total of 248 boats were built before the recession of 1987 reduced customer demand leading to the cease of production in 1988. Today the Alberg 37 has many fans and an avid following from owner communities. Several boats have circumnavigated attesting to their sail-ability and long-lived quality construction.

Well taken care of with numerous and timely upgrades THULE is an excellent opportunity for those looking for a quality boat in good condition for coastal or ocean cruising and maybe even a race or two. Currently in winter storage in nearby to Brooklin Boat Yard THULE awaits your inspection.
