Description: Mustang 37 Flybridge
Oliver, a big name in flybridge boats in NZ amalgamated with Mustang in Australia. The R&D and intellectuality came across the Tasman, bringing to this country a new range of sport, game and recreational fishing boats to suit the mid to upper end of the market, one of these is the Mustang 37

Entry to the cockpit is via a lift-open and fold-back coaming, and a swing-out marlin door of good proportions. Once the coaming is opened and laid back across the transom bulkhead, the underside is lined with a nylon cutting board and can be used for bait preparation.

Directly below this board in the bulkhead is a hatch that gives access to the plumbing for the deckwash and shower that sits behind covers on the inside edge of the marlin door opening. This compartment would make good stowage for bait-rigging tools and gear. In the middle of the transom bulkhead is a deep livebait tank with a lid held open by a collapsible spring. Farther across under the next hatch is a hand basin and tap for clean up.

Up against the aft wall of the cabin on the starboard side is a vertical rod locker. It is drainable and a good place to stand gear for washing and securing later.

At its base, a corner module has a flat seating area with a hatch on its inside edge accessing the battery isolator bank. Another, lower in profile, holds one of the freshwater fillers and is the step used to climb onto the gunwale for walking around the superstructure.

In the opposite corner of the cockpit, a module under the rear galley window holds a freezer. Superimposed over this is a bowed ladder with timber foot treads up to the bridge.

A slight step up between these modules is the hatch to the engineroom which opens on a gas strut. The sea strainers are mounted to the rear of each Cummins engine and visible without climbing in. Fuel filters are mounted on the rear bulkhead directly under the opening, and the tops of these and other fittings are shrouded with an aluminium plate to prevent damage to them and to limbs when climbing into the engineroom.

Each engine sits over its own sump constructed by high longitudinal stringers. Between these two sumps is a central crawl-way that allows one to move forward between the engines. And being the lowest point in the hull it is fitted with the bilge pumps. The dipsticks for the gearboxes and engine are accessible from this pathway as is the engine sump pump-out apparatus.

With the engineroom hatch closed, one opens double-glass aluminium framed doors to the saloon. To starboard, at head height, is the switchboard and below that, a fridge-freezer.

Moving forward is a bench seat that converts to an extra berth. On the forward end, on the outer wall of the electronics cabinet is a flat-screen TV on a multi-directional mount for viewing from all parts of the saloon.

In the aft end of the saloon to port is the U-shaped galley featuring a one-piece moulded top with the sink in the corner. Standing here, one may lean over the sink in rough seas without bashing the head on other structures. Next to it, a flat ceramic-top cooker is slightly raised over the surrounding bench top but has no fence or guard to prevent pans from sliding around and off the heat. Below that a microwave is flush mounted. The galley has plenty of deep drawers for utensils, but you will have to come up with your own racks and trays for cutlery and glasses though.

Forward of the galley island, a U-shaped seating arrangement is comfortable and the table is removable or may be lowered to form a small double berth.

The fore section of the saloon each side of the companionway to the lower deck is very deep-reaching and is the usual spot for all manner of reading material, charts and chattels. You'll fit plenty of everything here!

While the design lines of boats have more recently gone away from the 'rounded' look to more square in format, this section of the companionway is the wrong place for change. The timberwork at the entry is at a sharp 90-degree angle and with no grabrails to assist one below during a rough journey, will be a rib breaker for sure. The other side is also square, but more forward and one is well-and-truly down the stairs by the time they are level with that section of the bulkhead.

Three steps will take you below where, on the starboard side, a door opens to the double-bunk cabin with robe, while portside one accesses the ablutions.

Here we find the head immediately in front with shower alcove left. The head flushes to a 200lt holding tank with dockside emptying via a deck fitting or overboard lockable ball valve. The switches for the head pump and power outlets are across the back of where the head is located. There is a foot step and seat base for showering when the boat is heaving. The shower screen is constructed of a flexible opaque vinyl that slides in between the shower liner and companionway wall. When closed for showering it locks onto a laminated glass screen fitted to the wall. A hand basin is located in the forward corner and a mirror is fixed to the back of the door.

Into the stateroom and the queen sized double bed has step-up and walkaround access to about the halfway mark each side. The base and mattress rise on a gas strut to access stowage space inside the base which is fully carpeted. Another flat screen TV adorns the wall of one of two robes that have shirt-size hanging space and two drawers each. The walls, ceiling and sidepockets are soft-upholstered, and there is a mirror.

This boat was well over $600k new and still presents as a new boat. Well worth the look
