A 37' Vee Bottom Long Range Cruiser
Brewer / Wallstrom Design  #54

The Deer Isle 37 is a husky cruiser designed for long range comfort, operating economy and seaworthiness. Her construction is of seam-batten planking on heavy sawn frames providing ease of construction, durability and a tight hull without the need for caulking. Decks and cabin truck are of plywood construction, fibreglass or Vectra covered. A small boatyard, or a competent amateur craftsman, will encounter no difficulties in building her.

    Power may be a single diesel engine of 75-160 HP or twin engines each 75-125 HP, providing cruising speeds from 8 to 14 knots as required. Fuel capacity of 180 gallons and water tankage of 150 gallons assure a large operating radius. The vee bottom hull is of the semi-displacement type with a displacement/length ratio of 214.
