New Model: Ocean Yachts 37 Express

Ocean Yachts finally debuts its new 37 Express a new open sportfish cruiser type built using the popular and proven hull of the Billfish model. The new design includes a new cabin arrangement, an express helm deck with engine room access and mezzanine seating with storage in the cockpit. The cabin boasts upper and lower bunks, a sofa with rod storage, a well-equipped galley and a full head with enclosed shower. The 37 Express features a helmsman’s seat, companion seating, molded-in electronics boxes and “plug-and-play” lounge seating so customers who order have the ability to customize their layout. The cockpit features all the amenities you would expect to find in an offshore sport fisherman including a rigging station, tackle storage, bait freezer, large fish boxes and transom door. The 37’ Express is offered with hard top or full tower packages.  Power is from standard twin Yanmars 480hp or optional Cummins with the same horse, or more powerful 530 Yanmar's.  Speed numbers have not been announced but I do expect mid thirty numbers as Billfish model.
