2024 Rockport R37



Portsmouth, Rhode Island, United States
  • 1 Staterooms
  • 1 Heads
  • 1 Engines

Sea trialed in 2023 and delivered in 2024, new circumstances have prevented the owners from enjoying the boat. She has not been used beyond her initial sea trials & delivery (~38 hours). This is a rare and special opportunity to find on the brokerage market an essentially brand new custom yacht, offered for a fraction of her cost-to-build new. 


Originally conceived by a discerning and experienced yachting family, the R37 was designed and built at the renowned Rockport Marine (Rockport, ME), and influenced by classic lobster yachts of the 1950’s—boats known for their seakindliness, efficiency, and comfortable ride. Modern adjustments include a hull form that combines traditional “built-down” shape for comfort and lower engine position with hard chines for higher speed and spray deflection. Top speed of 24 knots makes covering ground fast and effortless. Roomy cockpit with open stern for easy tender stowage, and below is understated luxury in the Herreshoff style for cruising comfort and gourmet cooking in the unusually spacious galley. Both on deck and below, every detail and fitting has been exquisitely selected for quality, restrained style and durability.
