What is the best value 37-foot catamaran on the market if you are buying new? Well, the Aventura 37 has to be in with a shout. Aventura was launched in 2000 and began by specialising in building smaller catamarans that are great value for money. They now build the 37, 45 and two motor yachts: the 35MY and 50MY.
The 37 was developed in collaboration with Lasta Design. She’s a good-looking boat with some clever touches and an interior space that is unique on the market for a sub 12m yacht. There is an option for a fly-lounge and the helm has a double seat with a winch station close to the sail plan, allowing excellent control of the mainsail and overlapping genoa.
The outside saloon can accommodate up to 8 guests; with steps to starboard for direct access to the roof, and inside, the layout has been well thought out with a saloon for 5 to 6 guests, a galley with a 285L American style fridge/freezer, an oven, a microwave, a dishwasher and a navigation area tucked into the starboard corner. There is even an option for a grill in the aft lounge
Probably the best-value new 37-footer on the market
With a clever use of space, the Aventura 37 feels like a bigger boat, especially if you opt for the owner’s version.
Plenty of relaxation zones such as the aft lounge, the fly lounge, the saloon and the forward deck
A competent sailor, especially with the bowsprit option
Very good visibility from the helm with all lines leading back to the control station
Aventura isn’t as well known as some other production catamaran brands, we’d expect a faster depreciation over time.
No ventilation overhead in the saloon. The forward windows are big though.
The Aventura 37 comes standard as a 3-cabin version, with the owner’s suite in the port hull comprising a big double bed, an office space, a dressing room and a walk-in shower. She is also available in a four cabin charter version with two or four bathrooms.
The Aventura comes with a genoa and mainsail with a traveller aft on the coach roof. There is an option for a bowsprit to fly larger sails in lighter conditions. She has a favourable sail-area/displacement ratio and well-shaped hulls and is a competent sailor. They have worked hard to centralise the weight – an important factor for the motion at sea on a 37-footer. You can expect 7-8 knots in favourable conditions, a touch more with the bowsprit option or when the wind picks up.
What you lose in simplicity with the overlapping genoa, you gain in power from the fore-sail. With an electric winch, tacking is easy in any case.
This catamaran packs a lot of relaxation space into her size. The aft salon has a dining table that will sit up to eight, and there is a long bench aft with a sun lounger to starboard. Heading forward on the starboard side, you will pass the steps up to the optional fly lounge. And forward, there is room for three more large cushions on the foredeck. There are plenty of relaxation zones in other words!
The boat is easy to get around with plenty of hand-holds on the coach roof.
The well-thought-out design continues as you head inside the saloon which can accommodate 5/6 people around the table and includes an oven, microwave, an American-style fridge/freezer and even a nav station forward on the starboard side. There is plenty of storage.
Down below, Lasta Design has done a fantastic job in maximising the space for living. On the owner’s version, you have a big double berth, an office space, a separate dressing area and a big walk-in shower. The guest hull has two cabins and a head and shower. There is also an option for a charter configuration with four cabins and from two to four bathrooms.
