Still a popular boat in resale markets, the Topaz 37 Sportfisherman is a reworked version of the popular Topaz 36 SF with additional fuel, increased bow flare, and a slightly larger interior. No lightweight, she’s built of solid fiberglass on a modified-V hull with a relatively wide beam and low freeboard aft. Offshore, the 37 has a reputation for possessing a solid ride and good handling characteristics. The cockpit is a bi-level arrangement with the engines located forward, beneath the raised bridge deck. (Access to the engines is much improved from the Topaz 36.) The open helm provides good visibility, and there’s room on the console for flush-mounting any electronics not fitted in an overhead cabinet. Below deck, the cabin is set up to sleep four and includes a U-shaped dinette, complete galley, and a separate stall shower in the head. Additional features include an in-deck fish box, excellent cockpit storage, a lockable electronics compartment, transom door, and wide side decks. The only engines installed in the Topaz 37 during her production years were twin 375hp Cat diesels, which cruise at 25 knots and reach a top speed of around 28–29 knots.
