About Sweet Thing

"Sweet Thing" is a fine example of the exceptionally seaworthy W.I.B. Crealock designed Pacific Seacraft 37. Her double-furling cutter rig, canoe stern and her shoal draft keel make her ready to sail to the islands and beyond in comfort and style.

"The Crealock 37 is an attempt to provide the weekender and the cruising sailor with a boat which will travel fast between ports under complete control, and which will yet remind him that the passage itself should be one of the pleasures of the cruise." --W.I.B. Crealock, Designer

Step aboard "Sweet Thing" and you will immediately be struck by her solid construction and quality materials - from fine teak accents to heavy bronze opening port lights. Her many recent cruising upgrades include a linear auto helm, an offshore wind vane, a water maker, solar panels, heavy duty ground tackle and an electric windlass. She is not only stylish and comfortable, she is fully equipped and ready to go.

Accommodations

Although she is built to sail in even the most challenging conditions "Sweet Thing" is remarkably roomy and comfortable below decks. The welcoming companionway leads to a generous U-shaped galley to starboard. To port, there is a navigation station with upgraded electrical panels and an ample quarter berth. The main salon boasts stunning teak joinery work, six solid bronze opening port lights, a large Bomar hatch, a folding teak dinette table and plush Ultra leather upholstery. The starboard settee easily converts to a double berth. The head is forward to starboard with two large louvered hanging lockers to port. The master stateroom is forward, with a roomy offset double berth and a dressing seat which also serves as easy passage into and out of the berth. Three large opening ports and a Bomar hatch provide plenty of light and ventilation. The overall feel is that of comfortable quality which is enhanced by the lovely teak and holly sole throughout.
