ANEMOS is an Alberg
37, sloop MK II, hull #203, built in 1979 and on the water in 1980. The previous owners sailed mainly on
The boat had a major refit between 1996 – 2000 and completely equipped for a circumnavigation. At that time, the boat was known as Murphy’s Law. In 2005 I purchased my dream boat, the boat I was looking for since few years. All my research to find the perfect boat for offshore sailing and maybe an Atlantic crossing brought me to the Alberg 37.
I changed the name for ANEMOS meaning “The Wind” in ancient Greek. Since 2005, I finished all the renovations and now ANEMOS is like a new Alberg 37 with the legendary offshore sailing quality that we know but the finish of a Hinckley.
All the interior is in teak with a lot of storage and the coverings are like new. A new toilet, a new holding tank with monitor and a new diesel tank (150 liters) were installed in 2006. Cabin heating is with either a wood stove or the ESPAR system with a thermostat. The galley is fully equip with a 4 burner propane stove, propane safety system and monitoring alarm, hot and cold water, 12V/110V refrigerator and again plenty of storage space.
The navigation area includes a pilot berth, a map table (open or close), the electronic system control, a VHF, radar, GPS, interior automatic pilot control (Autohelm 6000), stereo/CD.
The engine is a Yanmar 1999, 3 cylinder turbo diesel, 57 HP. The electrical power is provided with 3 sets of batteries and a generator if needed.
The exterior is all new AwlGrip paint (2005) for the hull; Interlux Perfection for the deck (2006); and Cetol for the wood (2005). Brass opening ports, chrome vents, CapeHorn self-steering, new speakers, oversize rigging, etc. have been added.
