Designed by Robert Perry and built by the Tayang Yacht Building Company. The Tayana 37 has enjoyed a production run spanning more than 40 years, new build still being available today. With more than 580 yachts built during this period. There is a large active owners association which enjoys direct engagement with the builders, offering owners a wealth of resources and support.
The traditional hull shape with simulated planking above the water line and canoe stern is a common feature on Taiwanese built cruising yachts. Similar to the popular Hans Christian designs. Fitted out using the finest teak on and below decks she offers practical and comfortable accommodation in a traditional style.
With the one owner from new CAPERCAILLIE has enjoyed cruising in the waters of the USA and in later years the Western Isles of Scotland. She has proved herself a highly capable cruising yacht, easily handled by a crew of just two. With significant investment in recent years she now needs a little cosmetic TLC before heading off on new adventures.

'The Tayana 37 is perhaps the most successful semi-custom cruising boat to be built. It was designed by Bob Perry and introduced in 1975 as a response to the Westsail 32 which were sold in enormous numbers. Today looking back, with the boat still in production with a boat count of 588, most still sailing, and an active and owners community, its very apparent that Perry has succeeded.

One could say the boat was designed to ignite imaginations of tropical sunsets in exotic locations; think oodles of teak and a beautiful custom interior, wrapped into traditional double-ender hull with a full keel. Beneath the alluring romance, you’ll find a boat that is solidly built, and indeed many Tayana 37s can be found on the blue water cruising circuit around the world.
Tayana 37 has been constructed of the finest materials, using the best techniques. There is no better yacht in her size range on the market. With care and proper maintenance she will not only prove to be an excellent investment, she will take you cruising anywhere in the world safely and comfortably. This is being proven almost daily. Ocean crossings by Tayana 37’s are routine. Circumnavigations have been reported. By the same token, over 500 of these yachts are the primary homes of their owners.'

The Tayana yachts were built in Taiwan by the Tayang Yacht Building Company. First introduced in 1975 the boat is still in production today with a total of almost 600 examples produced by the factory.
