S/V "Groucho Marx " is an Brisbane based 1978 Crowther Spindrift 37 SOLD!!

This Boat Owner desires either cash or he's willing to trade!!

The Spindrift 37 is a Lock Crowther design and was the prototype for the Lock Crowther designed Catana 38. She was built with care by well respected multihull specialist Shawn Arber.

The Spindrift Mark 3 was designed as a racer/cruiser for coastal and offshore, and was built with a narrow bridge-deck cabin for racing, which only allows for a crawl space into the hulls (See Photo's). This is a racing/cruiser that was actually set up for racing. Its foam core hulls make her light and fast. Their multichamber design make the vessels virtually unsinkable. Although, not luxurious, it is functional, comfortable, and fast. It has all the needed amenities to sail for short or long adventures. There is 6ft+ish in the hulls themselves with a head/shower fore, double bunk mid and a single bunk aft in each hull.

This is a high performance cat, not a condo-maran. This is not a project boat, S/V Groucho Marx is fully equipped, and with complete instrumentation. In other words, this is a bluewater high performance ocean racer with the trophies to prove it. (see photos) It won both in and off shore type races. The Brisbane to Gladstone race being one example. Think Corvette not Cadillac. Think ahead of the storm, not in it. A very light, strong, fast, vessel.

No Reasonable offer refused.

Items Included but not yet installed: (Preparing for single hand cruising)

  • GME AIS Transceiver (class B) & antenna splitter (Australian MMSI already assigned to vessel)
  • 340w might be 370w wind turbine.
  • 3700gph bilge pumps (foam core with dry hulls but I believe in preparation)
  • LED lighting for the whole boat and then some.
