Rafiki 37 Cutter, 1977

"On Verra"(We'll See) is a 1977 Rafiki 37 cutter. She is hull #16 of this famous blue water world cruiser designed by Stan Huntingford. Like many Rafikis, On Verra has been around the world. She's done it twice, including a stop in Antarctica. That was with the previous owner couple, a salty pair that left maps and records of their 17 years voyaging aboard her. They continually maintained and refitted her, as have my wife and I for the 3 short years we've had the pleasure of owning her. We've only put a bit over 2000 miles on her, the longest crossing being the 800 miles from Dry Tortugas to Galveston. Kathy and I think this is the most secure-feeling boat we've ever sailed. And to say that after two six day Gulf crossings says a lot. She's a really comfortable, sweet ride.

  • Our life will keep us ashore a while, so On Verra needs another couple to take her around the world again.
