New Model: Dale Classic 37

The vision to build a new Dale classic styled model started to become more than just an idea back in early April 2020 when discussions and sketches between Mike and designer Arthur Mursell resulted in drawings flying back and for in earnest. At first the Classic 37 was named as Classic 36, with the project becoming larger and a gap filler in space and comfort between the Classic 35 and Classic 45 models.  Enters the Dale Classic 37, which based on the hull shape of the 40, with the wider beam helping to give more accommodation to that of the 35, with a choice for a galley down one cabin layout, or galley up two cabins single head.  The Dale Classic 37 is also very versatile for power fit out, coming with started twin 230hp engines for a semi-displacement ride up to eighteen knots, and or optional engines up to 440hp.  Hull number one was fitted with the large engines option, putting a top speed just one knot shy of the declared magic thirty knots number.
