Jeanneau pulled no punches when they went after the competition in the fierce battle for dayboat/weekender supremacy. This all new DB37 is spectacular, from stem to stern. The cockpit is huge, and only gets larger when the two side balconies are lowered. These are flanking a booth style dining area with the forward seat transitioning from forward-facing to aft-facing. Just ahead, a galley up features a sink, griddle, grill, refrigeration and plenty of storage. Above is a drop-down TV… all under the protection of a hardtop with an extendable shade at the trailing edge.
The helm is overloaded with the latest features and seats three across with individual bucket seats. The operator is in the middle and having observers to both sides means that not only are there more eyes looking ahead, but there’s always someone happy to join the captain. Below, there’s a forward island berth with access to both sides, and then, we were blown away by the mid-cabin. It includes a private entrance, not just a curtain, and twin berths that convert to a one huge berth.
