Never mind those boats that some factories call walkarounds. You know the ones with the side decks so narrow that your foot won’t fit sideways? The ones where – with a rod in hand – you feel as if you’re almost falling overboard as you try to get to the bow to fight a fish. This Strike 37 constitutes a true walkaround with a single-level deck and unobstructed access from stem to stern.

Strike builds a super-high-quality, semicustom boat, meaning that within the confines of a given hull/deck layout, you can specify pretty much everything else. In other words, decor, number of rod holders and their placement, hull color and so on may all be determined by you.

Several things set this boat apart from all others, but perhaps the most noteworthy is the aforementioned deck layout. A narrow cabin affords a wide, almost center-console-esque working space all the way around the boat. Yet belowdecks, you have a comfortable and functional cabin, albeit smaller than if its boundaries extended to the gunwales. Thanks to the high rails providing total security, this design allows your children to have the run of the boat without needing constant supervision. From no place on this boat could they easily fall over the side.

Strike does an excellent job of dressing the cabin up in abject luxury. But it’s a small space nonetheless, with a V-berth forward and a midship berth aft. A head to starboard and a small galley with Corian counters – all done with impeccable joinerwork and fine woods and fabrics   leaves one feeling that, no, you won’t want to spend an entire weekend indoors in this living space, but a night or rainy afternoon would work perfectly. However, if you just cannot talk your significant other into this more compact belowdecks area, Strike offers an express version on the same terrific hull.

The Strike 37, equipped with twin Cummins 425 hp QSB diesel inboards, performs admirably, with no shortcomings or idiosyncrasies. And you can order it with several power options. We can honestly say that thanks in part to Strike’s factory-direct sales, we have never heard of an unhappy Strike Yacht owner.
