Designed originally for wood construction in 1966, Sentinel, and several other S&S 37's, have been built using hand laid fibre glass. She was the predecessor to the famous, smaller, S&S 34 to whom she is very closely related.

With a moulded keel and big full length stringers, Sentinel oozes strength and ability.
The famous Clarionet, Sparkman & Stephens design #1857, was an S&S 37, a sister ship to Sentinel, who, years ago, took out the one ton cup.

Sentinel originally raced in Westernport Bay in mixed fleets and cruised the Bass Strait Islands. She proved to be a worthy competitor to, supposedly, faster boats. She will glide along happily in light airs but comes alive when the breeze kicks in. And if anyone wants to take her on to weather, especially in heavy going. Good luck with that ambition! The only other boat that could hang on to her, sometimes, was my own S&S 34.
Sentinel went on to sail and to cruise New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. But it wasn't all "Pacific" tropical trade wind sailing.
For the past few years Sentinel has been based in Tasmania. She has cruised Bass Strait extensively and has made several trips to Port Davey, in the remote SW. The weather is notoriously fickle down this way where severe gales can spring out of nowhere. Sentinel takes all this in her stride and when you have a great big piece of rock called Tasmania to leeward, in a gale and a big sea, this is when Sentinel's pedigree and windward ability will be fully appreciated. Have no fear in this boat.
Aside from the original builder, Sentinel has had one owner from 1987 but is now, reluctantly, being offered for sale.
Sentinel is in need of a little TLC, mainly cosmetic. However, having said that, she is a fully functional unit and can, and does, go out sailing. She's just untidy and in need of more of the TLC she used to have lavished on her.
The person who will buy this boat is someone who knows what she is, who understands the pedigree of this boat. Someone who wants a safe, fast, sea kindly, forgiving, well mannered, ocean going yacht. Sentinel's forgiving nature makes her an ideal vessel for anyone with aspirations to do long distance single or two handed sailing.
If you are the person who is willing and able to take care of Sentinel, (let's face it, all boats need that) give me a buzz.

Sentinel is an Australian registered ship and Tasmanian registered.

If required, I will be happy to deliver, or assist to deliver Sentinel anywhere, be it within Australia or overseas.

Sail Inventory
Main. By Doyle. Fully battened in good condition.
Mainly Hood sails.
Trisail. In excellent condition. Used once in a Tasman Sea gale.
Jib # 3. This most used sail is a bit soft but in fair condition.
Jib # 4. In good condition.
Storm jib. This least used head sail is in good condition.
Lightweight jib. This sail is a light weight, high cut blade type of sail with a luff rope.
At this moment in time I am thinking it is a light weight staysail. In very good condition.
A nice looking sail.
Spinnakers. 2.
One of these kites is a fairly heavy asymmetrical - perhaps a 2oz cloth.
The other is a. 75 oz light drifter of a kite. Without stretching it out I can't see exactly what it is but I think it's a big tri radial job.
Mast / Rigging
Aluminium mast SS rigging
Deck Gear
2 unidentified Arco ST main winches but I suspect they are at least 45's.
2 X Arco 30 ST winches on cabin top for lines led aft.
2 X Arco 30 ST winches on mast.
Arco electric anchor winch. (Not working - winch is fine but needs new motor).
Wheel steering. Can't see a brand name but perhaps an Edson system.
Remarks
Sentinel is an excellent seaboat that will take you absolutely anywhere. If you are looking for a galley and toilet to please your wife, all wrapped in a boat, Sentinel probably isn't for you. If you want to get your wife safely across an ocean, no matter what, then perhaps she is for you. So give me a call.
