W-Class – W.37

Rhode Island, United States

The W.37 Cavalino features a carefully laid-out and efficient deck plan that showcases spare, elegant joinery. When the comfortable upholstered couches are removed and stowed below, she transforms from a luxurious daysailer into a racing machine, with her crew hiking out well outboard on the sculpted teak side decks. Adrenaline-pumping performance of today, the glorious elegance of yesterday.

Compete in a wide variety of regional and international regattas aboard the versatile, "Spirit of Tradition" racer/cruiser, Cavalino. She is a fast, elegant and beautiful sloop that has been winning regattas since her launch in 2010.

Cavalino is a unique sister ship in the W-Class family. Like the W.76s and the W.46s that came before her, she combines classic good looks with traditional yacht joinery and cold-molded wood composite construction. Cavalino sports the hull shape, carbon spars, and equipment of a modern racer and the result is a fast, nimble racer/cruiser that is a thrill to sail and turns heads on the race course.
