Manufacturers Comments

The classic design, soft-riding seaworthy hull and luxurious accommodation have made the 37 Grand Mistral the perfect performance motor yacht for extended cruising. With class-leading economy that many boat owners only dream of, those distant locations become a reality. With the option of a custom-made sleek hardtop and electric sunroof, all-weather protection has never been easier. The unique u-shaped cockpit arrangement is a social dream, just perfect for inviting friends on board.

Below decks are two separate sleeping cabins, a well-equipped galley and saloon, all finished with a blend of solid timber joinery, colours and luxurious fabrics of a standard that others strive to follow.
