In designing the Rafiki, Stan Huntingford questioned 100’s of offshore sailors as to their desires and needs in a safe and comfortable offshore vessel. From this he created the 37, designed with three things in mind: simplicity, seaworthiness and beauty, and judging from her continued popularity these many years later, he succeeded on all three counts.

The Rafiki 37 is a bulletproof heavy displacement, full keeled, canoe sterned, tiller steered, cutter rigged blue water sailboat and Warwick is a must-see for anyone in the market for such a timeless classic. Note these vessels are wonderful passagemakers, a sistership with which we’re familiar completed two complete circumnavigations without incident. Warwick is owned by a discerning individual and kept in wonderful condition. Take a look at the photos and equipment list by clicking on full specs and you will see all she has to offer.

La Paz is a yachting center and any and all work needed can be done here locally. Known as the gateway to the Sea of Cortez, you can start your cruise in some of the most spectacular waters in the world.  In just a day’s sail from town, you can be at any of 25 plus anchorages, most with white sand beaches, turquoise waters and amazing sea life.  Call or email us to find out how easy it is to buy a boat from us.
