The Endurance 37 is a heavy displacement offshore cruising design which has gained a loyal following among serious offshore cruisers. The hulls were available for yards or home builders to purchase and fit out. MOORHEN is a professionally finished example of the Endurance 37 fitted out by the Capistrano Yacht Company, Hamble. Laid out below decks with a master cabin forward, bunk cabin with two single berths and an additional 3 berths in the saloon she is ideally suited to family cruising

MOORHEN was purchased by the present owners in Falmouth in 1999 and sailed up to Scotland where she has been cruised since. During 2007 – 2011 the boat benefitted from a comprehensive refit and has been very lightly cruised since her relaunching in 2011. Her extensive cruising inventory includes:

In 2007 she was transported to our house in the Borders for a comprehensive refit project. Works including:
Epoxy coating of the hull as a precaution (no evidence of osmosis was found)
Painting of the topsides, coachroof and cockpit etc,
Complete refurbishment of the teak deck (including replacement of all the caulking)
Removal and professional refurbishment of coach roof windows and the four deck hatches
Complete replacement of internal headlining
Rewiring of all electrical systems with marine grade tinned cable
The two fuel tanks were extracted from the bilges , cleaned and painted (externally)
The Mercedes OM636 engine was fully reconditioned by Westfield 4x4 (see their website)
New engine bearers fitted along with an Aquadrive unit,
New engine controls for cockpit and inside
New quadrant tiller arm
Engine space sound insulated
All rigging attachments and cleats were removed and rebedded on strengthened supports
Internally, new drawers and shelves were built to improve storage and appearance.

Lots of new equipment was installed as part of the works including:
New electric windlass fitted
2 new Lewmar 40ST winches
1 new Lewmar 40EST electric winch
Mainsheet traveller system fitted
2 new electric bilge/grey waste pumps

The re-fit was a labour of love completed to our own high standard. Moorhen was relaunched in 2011 and been lightly used since because of intermittent health problems and then Covid restrictions. We have loved our time aboard Moorhen finding her a reliable friend.
