The Boat Show Roundup - Reviews of the SeaPiper 37

SeaPiper 37: A Star at the Anacortes Boat and Yacht Show

The Anacortes Boat and Yacht Show featuring Trawlerfest, held in the picturesque Pacific Northwest, is always a highlight for boating enthusiasts. This year, the SeaPiper 37 stole the spotlight, garnering significant attention and positive feedback from attendees. In this blog post, we provide a detailed look at how this pocket trawler was received at the show as well as links to published videos by third-party reviewers.


The SeaPiper 37 received overwhelmingly positive reactions from visitors. Its unique design and versatility made it a favorite among the crowd. The boat was consistently busy with visitors from the moment it arrived at the dock before the show started to the time it departed the dock, showcasing its appeal and the high level of interest it generated.

Of those particularly interested in the vessel were couples, solo-adventurers and retired sailors looking for a manageable trawler vessel in a no-fuss, compact size. They were particularly intrigued by SeaPiper’s ability to be trailered, making the idea of endless destinations a significant advantage. The SeaPiper 37's funky design and unique capabilities made it stand out as a perfect trawler for those looking for something different yet highly functional.

The layout of the SeaPiper 37, with a forecabin separate from the pilothouse, stirred up many questions and discussions. This design is not commonly seen, but it intrigued many spectators. The layout allows for better use of space in the pilothouse and privacy for the head. Those who understood the concept appreciated its uniqueness and the ample space and versatility the mid-cockpit provided.

The boat on display, generously donated by it's new owner for use at the show, was outfitted with custom options that made it suitable for various activities such as spearfishing, scuba diving, and kayaking. Additionally, they added racks to hang stowable cots in the pilothouse so that their younger family members could enjoy long weekends together on the water. This versatility highlighted the boat's ability to cater to different passions and hobbies, making it an attractive option for a wide range of boating enthusiasts.

As with any boat, the SeaPiper 37 comes with compromises. While its unique layout and design offer many benefits, it didn't appeal to everyone. However, the boat's ability to cater to specific needs and preferences made it a standout choice for those who understood and appreciated its design philosophy. It's important to remind interested buyers that a bimini or shade can be custom-fit to the mid-cockpit by a third party installer, providing the added benefit of protection from the elements when moving between forecabin and pilothouse.

Included in the steady stream of eager onlookers, The SeaPiper 37 also caught the eye of many media outlets and reviewers. Publications and platforms such as Passagemaker Magazine, Boat Geeks, Boat Test, and Yacht Lens stopped by to observe the boat and share content with their followers. As more footage is published and comes available, we will be sure to keep you in the loop!
