Wiley Coyote

Wiley Coyote is a wonderfully comfortable and well-equipped vessel with tons of extras and lots of newer equipment.  It has been well maintained by a fastidious owner who is returning to Europe. This yacht is a great family boat with commodious accommodation and a sparkling performance under sail.  The unique feature of the Legend 37 is the huge walk-around double berth in the aft cabin.  This amount of interior volume is unbelievable for a sailboat with the desirable aft cockpit.

The overall design of the Legend 37, with the flat sheer visually connecting the sharp, aggressive bow to the reverse transom, gives it the appearance of a high-performance boat. To offset generous freeboard, the coach roof is kept low and slopes forward, where it dissolves into the foredeck, somewhat after the style of deck design pioneered by Nautor’s Swan.

Hunter built the Legend 37 with a solid-fiberglass hull, a balsa-cored deck, and molded interior liners that also incorporated structural components. A beefy transverse stiffener divides the main-saloon sole, and stringers run longitudinally on each side of the keel in the boat’s midsection.  This is a solid little ship.

The Legend 37’s interior is designed to very comfortably accommodate a crew of four. In the forward cabin there’s a generous V-berth, a hanging locker, and a convenient vanity with sink. Immediately aft of that, and well forward of the boat’s midsection, is the main saloon, with its center-line drop-leaf table and near circular seating.

Aft, offering some standing headroom, the spacious owner’s stateroom features a pedestal double berth and his-and-hers hanging locker/bureaus. It can be entered via the walk-through galley to port, or the walk-through head to starboard. On a vessel this size, it must be seen to be believed!

Under the waterline, the Legend 37 has a balanced spade rudder and a shoal-draft bulb/wing keel. Also, the fractional rig incorporates double swept-back airfoil spreaders and a split backstay. While the jib is small, the main is reasonably large and should be able to handle heavy air without creating significant weather helm. The SA/D ratio of 18.6 means that the Legend 37 performs well in light air, typical of summer weather in the Pacific Northwest.

The Hunter Legend 37 is both racer and cruiser in the truest sense of that sailing hybrid, capable of winning in club competition or providing luxury and comfort on a week-long cruise. Its racer profile will turn heads, while its below-decks accommodations are likely to encourage friends less interested in competition to stay aboard a bit longer. This boat is equally at home in both worlds and is a must-see for any serious sailor who also wants comfort.
