With a heavy heart, we have to sell our fantastically beautiful Norlin 37. A rock-solid boat that sails well and is safe and good in all kinds of weather. A boat that is guaranteed to give the new owner many compliments in guest ports in Norway and abroad for many years.
The boat got a new engine in 2017 – a Yanmar 3YM30AE. This was installed by Vollen Slipp in Asker and has passed 349 hours till now. In other words, it has many thousands of hours ahead of it.
The sail wardrobe consists of a mainsail which is perfectly OK. It works just fine for touring sailing and regattas without the greatest ambitions. The furling genoa was new in 2019 and is very comfortable to use during cruises. Also included is a huge 140% genoa, as well as a smaller storm jib.
In 2006, virtually the entire superstructure was clad in teak. The work was carried out by Elløs Teakservice at Orust in Sweden. The teak deck is thick and well maintained and can be sanded up to several times before it needs to be replaced. The teak deck has been treated with Boracol and sanded (without power and against the grain) to prevent mould.
The boat is from 1983, but it is clear that the build quality at that time was completely different from today. The hull is thick, the keel bolts are huge, and the feeling of security is great. Nevertheless, as with all other aging boats, there are some small things that the next owner will hopefully enjoy improving. I checked the autopilot and wind instrument earlier this summer, and I haven’t found what is wrong. If we were to own the boat for many more years, we would probably change the chart plotter and the other instruments. However, there are no major shortcomings – e.g., engine, rig, cooling attachment, etc., faults with this boat.
For more information about the type of boat, you can read the story “named after mother-in-law” on Seilmagasinet. The interior and layout of this boat are, however, somewhat different, which naturally appears in the pictures and which can be seen on inspection.
PS: the boat is being sold due to personal circumstances, but we are in no rush to sell. If the price isn’t right, or we don’t have faith that the person who wants to buy will take good care of the boat, we’d rather wait until spring and sell then. Boat mooring during the winter can be arranged.
The boat is located at the Leangbuktens boat association in Asker and can be viewed there by appointment.
