The Creekmore 34 design was developed into the Endeavour 37 in 1977. A hull from a Creekmore 34 was extended by 3 ft (0.9 m) and then used as a plug to create the mold for the Endeavour 37, which then went on to sell 476 examples.[1][4]

DesignEdit

The Creekmore 34 is a recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, a raked stem, a reverse transom, a keel-mounted rudder and a fixed modified long keel, with a cut-away forefoot. It displaces 17,000 lb (7,711 kg) and carries 7,000 lb (3,175 kg) of ballast.[1][3]

The boat has a draft of 4.90 ft (1.49 m) with the standard keel fitted. It is fitted with an inboard engine for docking and maneuvering.[1]

The boat can be fitted with jib or a genoa for upwind sailing or a spinnaker for downwind sailing.[3]
