Judge 37 Oxford is Seaworthy, Efficient
June 9, 2010
It’s one thing for a boatbuilder to produce a seaworthy, efficient, attractive hull, but another to create several different cabin/cockpit configurations on it without wrecking its balance. Judge Yachts has now met that challenge with its 37 Oxford, sister ship to the already-classic 36 Chesapeake.
While the Chesapeake is geared toward fishing trips and weekends, the Oxford is a full-on cruising boat for a couple, with a queen berth forward, separate head and shower, galley-up to starboard in the salon, comfortable U-shaped dinette to port, and helm/companion chairs to keep skipper and mate comfortable during long passages. The single 480 hp Cummins electronic diesel offers quiet, efficient power at both trawler (8.4 mph @ 2.2 gph) and cruising speeds (18.7 mph @ 8.7 gph). Bow and stern thrusters make maneuvering easy in tight spaces.
