Winning the Small Boat Class in the 2005 OSTAR Transatlantic Race demonstrates the windward capability of the Constant Camber 37 Fast Cruiser. Add a large cabin interior and comfortable seating throughout, and this design could take you anywhere in the world. The centerboard allows operation in shallow waters, and beaching for maintenance and repairs. The cutter-sloop rig provides easy sail reduction for rough weather. The mid-aft cockpit is well protected. Constant Camber streamlined construction with detailed plans has fewer components than other types of construction and is within the capabilities of amateurs.
