WindSong

If the name Stan Huntingford rings a bell, it should, for he was one of the principal designers at Cooper Yachts Ltd. In short, the Seabird 37 was designed and built in British Columbia to handle not only the West Coast waters, but also the quieter coves and bays. Wind Song would be able to take you to these wonderful landfalls and vistas. Why not anchor and stay for a few days?

Wind Song has been meticulously cared for with annual maintenance and upkeep with records to prove it. Even the exterior wood work illustrates an owner’s passion. Owning a boat has its own responsibilities, but a certain pride of ownership is everywhere you look, making the vessel equally inviting to both owners and guests alike. Just bring your provisions, find a compass bearing, or a star to steer by, and explore. The Seabird 37 will not disappoint you.

So Why Should You Buy This Boat?

Centre Cockpit – Having the cockpit in the middle of the boat has some benefits as compared to aft cockpits. For one, how about a private aft cabin that has its own toilet and shower? Another benefit is that you will likely be sailing drier since the cockpit is somewhat elevated. Being amidship in the boat, it may make it easier to sail short handed, including docking. Further, the cockpit has enough room for a happy crew to enjoy the views, and has a Tartarooga hard top as part of a bimini enclosure. Lastly, if you need to gain FULL access to the engine, simply lift up one of two hatches that are in the cockpit. No more body twisting.

Sloop Cutter Rig – Don’t be perplexed by the additional jib halyard or the club boom, for this will make life easier onboard. Whenever the wind picks up, all you have to do is furl in the big genoa, and just use the little jib instead. The club boom being self-tacking, and compound this with a full keel, sailing to weather has just become a little easier.

Galley – A very open and functional galley invites the sea cook to stow provisions and make memorable meals. With significant natural light, you can not only see what you are doing, but you further get an al-fresco dining experience to boot. A usable cockpit table is on standby if you need it, and the fridge is so efficient as it can be utilized with just solar charging alone. Lastly, if you need to bring your own crab trap, just strap it on top of the aft cabin. And don’t forget the Old Bay seasoning!

Effective Cabin Layout – Though this boat was built in 1981, the interior has been modernized for today and tomorrow. With new cushions and fabric boasting a West Coast motif, along with a well cared for wood interior, the main cabin can be nicely closed for great entertaining or relaxing. Wind Song has aged wonderfully. With multiple opening ports, fresh air is no problem. There is also a day head and vanity located forward for your guests comfort. To extend the sailing season, an Espar 2 zone hydronic heating system will keep you toasty and warm as well provide you with hot water for washing dishes or showering while anchored.

Aft Cabin – A very nice and proper design element on a 37’ boat, and something you would expect in this price range. If you want privacy or just that quiet nook to get away from it all, this is the place to be. Be it reading a book, watching tv, practicing your knotwork, or just having a snooze, you can tell everyone you are working very hard.

So much more to tell you, so read  the full details and be ready to be impressed. Then call me to arrange your own private showing. You will clearly be glad that you did. This very special Wind Song can be yours, and take you in total confidence, whether you are cruising B.C. waters, Puget Sound or beyond.

Its not to often that a boat comes with the diversity of safety equipment. Its even rare for a vessel of this size that comes with 10’ Hydro-Force (2018) tender.

  • Fire extinguisher: Two ABC type, one dry chem type

Extras

  • Transition – The vendor is very proud of his boat and the way that she has been kept and would be honoured to assist in orientating the new owner to his new vessel.
  • Canadian Coast Guard safety equipped

Marine Survey Review (2015):

  • If the surveyor only comes back to say that the flares and fire extinguisher needs to be updated or inspected (which they have), I think its safe to say that Wind Song is one very good boat. The attention from the extensive care and housekeeping of its present owners, will reflect for not only for its value, but also its ability to take care of its passengers and crew.
