Cavalier 375 1996
CAVALIER 375 ~ VERY CAPABLE CRUISER/RACER
In an illustrious yacht designing career stretching well over half-a-century Laurie Davidson drew many fast boats but is probably best known for his winning America’s Cup designs in 1995 and 2000.
The Cavalier 37 was a highly successful design and very popular with both cruising and racing sailors alike. It was made famous when Kay Cottee became the first woman to sail singlehanded around the world in her Cav 37 ‘First Lady’. Davidson designed the 375 as the successor to the highly regarded Cavalier 37.
The Cavalier 375 is essentially the same yacht as the Cavalier 395. The same hull was used with a slightly cut back transom, the keel and rudder are both the same. However, the 375 received a more performance orientated rig that is 60cm taller and 30cm shorter in the boom than the 395.
The Cavalier 375 is true sailors’ boat in every respect. With a tall and powerful 7/8 fraction rig the design is very competitive around the buoys and performs extremely well in a wide range of conditions. And the spacious well-appointed interior makes her a very comfortable live aboard cruising yacht.
The interior has been very well designed and the layout is both practical and liveable. At 192cm the saloon has a huge amount of headroom that gives the interior a very open and spacious feeling. The numerous portholes and hatches provide loads of natural light and the lovely rich warm Myrtle timber gives the interior an inviting homely ambience. The two full length settees make excellent sea berths, and the drop-leaf dining table will easily accommodate six hungry sailors for dinner.
The L-shaped galley features a top-quality Force 10 stove and oven with an opening hatch directly above to let the heat and cooking smells out. The sink has been positioned inboard where it will drain properly on either tack. There is large top loading refrigerator.
The nav table is excellent with a large top for charts and great layout that houses the large array of cruising electronics. The dedicated seat is a nice touch too.
Accommodation is very well catered for with two double cabins and the two single berths in the saloon. The owners cabin forward has a generous sized double bed and excellent storage on either side of the doorway. Three opening hatches provide an abundance of natural light and more than enough ventilation. The aft cabin also features a nicely sized double bed, opening hatches for ventilation and good storage.
The cockpit has been very well designed and the layout makes the Cav 375 very easy to sail, both with a crew or singlehanded. One of the standout features is the generous amount of room behind the helm.
Out There was repowered with a new 40hp Volvo in 2010 and has only 652 hours on the clock. The antifoul has just been done in August 2022.
The original owners cruised the NSW coast, Whitsunday Islands and took her all the way up to Papua New Guinea. They set the boat up for CAT 1 and many of those upgrades are reflected in the inventory. The current owner purchased her in Sydney and sailed her back to Perth, and she has only been lightly used for coastal cruising and the occasional JAM since.
