“The Osprey 37 is probably the most no-excuses, best-running boat I’ve ever driven,” said Steve Anderson, the president of J&J Marine in Somerset, Massachusetts. When his company brought the limited model over to the United States from Dutch builder Wajer, he said, “It brought tears to my eyes.” With her flared bow and tumblehome at the stern, teak trim, and dark blue Awlgrip paint, the Osprey brings to mind classic Rivas or Chris-Crafts. The U-shape cockpit seating layout creates seating for plenty of passengers; the boat can handle 12 people in total, which makes her well-suited to tender duty on larger yachts.
