Manufacturer Provided Description

The Maryland 37 has a long cruising range and a hull form that provides exceptional seagoing qualities. This type of trawler enables one to cover 1000 nautical miles at nine knots. Her two hulls and two engines provide great stability for anchoring and ease of maneuvering, allowing the Maryland to evolve in small spaces. The Maryland 37 has an large saloon with a cabinetwork table for six to eight people which can be converted into a double bed. The galley is designed with a large worktop, a cabinetwork bar, and a cockpit with a panoramic view. The two beautiful cabins have private showers and toilets. On deck there are two aft platforms, with a ladder and a cold water shower on the port side. The flybridge has a complete pilotage console.
