Introducing the finest Merritt 37' ever built

by Jorge Mahauad | Jan 06, 2021
ANDIAMO was the finest Merritt 37' ever built. The reason is simple; she was Roy Merritt's personal boat.

1967 Merritt Andiamo 1024x640@150dpi

Wonderfully cared for throughout the years, she has received impressive updates. Andiamo is now an exceptional example of a classic day fishing boat with all the refinements & quality finishes that only a genuinely custom classic can offer.

Facilitated by Brad Hunt, 'Andiamo' is now a part of the AMIkids Yacht Donation fleet. Currently lying at the Merritt's Boat and Engine Works yard, she will be be available for lease with interest free terms soon. All proceeds from her lease will support the AMIkids mission of helping vulnerable youth in 10 states. 

For additional information about leasing Andiamo, contact Brad Hunt. To learn more about how yacht donations help at-risk kids separate a troubled past from a bright future contact us.

"We always knew about AMIkids, but in 2019 I became involved in a transaction and took an interest to learn about the work various schools do. It struck me —supporting AMIkids is a way in which I can pay-back.

I got involved in helping kids in rough environments make better choices and get on a better route to success. I was happy to be invited to join the board of trustees and help contribute in the ways that I can."

— Neil Emmott, Partner at Superyacht Sales and Charter
