The Koopmans Tulip 37 is a modified version of the more built Tulip 36.2. The Tulip 37 has a slightly longer transom, which gives the yacht a larger cockpit and also more storage space. The Tulip has a practical interior, with a nicely lined deckhouse in which you will find a cosy round seat. The design by D. Koopmans Sr. guarantees good, seaworthy sailing properties. The hulls of the Tulips were built by Bayards, a leading builder specializing in aluminum hulls. This Koopmans Tulip 37 is being offered for sale by its first owner, who was also active as a manager at the Bayards yard during the construction of the Tulips.
