Interior and Accessories

One of the most notable features of the 2023 Phenom 37 is that it is a semi-custom builder, which means that you can customize it to meet your specific needs and styling preferences. Phenom sells directly to customers allowing you to skip the middleman and work directly with the brand to create your perfect boat.

To put it lightly, Phenom describes the Phenom 37 as delivering where “the top of expectations ends and phenomenal begins.”

Bow

The bow is going to be one of the areas that most interest those who like to lounge as they cruise the water. Here, you will find a large and spacious zone designed for entertainment. You can add in additional bow seating, should you choose. Each of the seats in the bow area includes storage under the lids.

All cushions in the bow are installed on plungers, which makes them easy to align depending on position and also to remove. Both the cushion itself and the backrest can be easily removed should you want more open space.

An optional electronically controlled bow table is available. This table sits in the center of the bow seating can be lowered into the deck and sits flush with the deck when not in use.

Other Features in the Bow Area:

  • Freshwater washdown
  • Windlass anchor system
  • Cleats and toe rail
  • Powder-coated bow handrails
  • Recessed storage

Front Console

At the front of the console, you will find contoured chaise loungers that include armrests for comfort. For additional legroom, the front half of the cushion slides forward.

The forward cushion of the chaise loungers acts as the lid to a 330-quart built-in insulated cooler. You can conveniently lift the cushion to access the cooler and keep both drinks and snacks cooled off here on your day adventure.

Console Interior

Moving into the console interior, you will access the interior via an entry door. This door does lock to add an extra layer of security should you not be on the boat.

Included in the 37 Phenom is a 6-foot berth. The berth has an overall height of more than 6.5 feet at its highest point. The berth can be easily transformed into a bench seat by simply lifting up the front section to form the bench.

Underneath the berth is an additional storage room, which is plentiful and spacious allowing you to store a bag or two, equipment, or anything else important you need on your trip.

Phenom Yachts includes standard with the Phenom 37 a tool kit and first aid kit, which both can be found within the berth storage area.

Located to the front of the berth is a porcelain head. Here you will also find a wood accent vanity, sink, and pull-out shower.

The console does come equipped with air conditioning making it a very comfortable area for those hot days on the water. The air plenum is installed above the window to ensure that the entire room is cooled quickly and efficiently. At night, the air plenum will glow. The air conditioner offers 3,500 BTUs and can run solely on batteries, which means it does not require the engine to be on to run.

Leaning Post

At the leaning post are three comfortable, plush, and oversized captain’s chairs. What sets these chairs apart from others is that the air conditioning runs right through them to keep you cool and comfortable while on the water. Each chair is ergonomically designed for supreme comfort and luxury. These seats offer heat in the winter as well.

All of the captain’s chairs are installed on an electric slide. This slide allows each passenger to maneuver the seat around to get the right fit.

On the backside of the leaning post is an additional seating area that consists of a mezzanine seat designed to seat two or three people. The seat includes armrests for added comfort. The bottom cushion of this seat hides an additional insulated cooler that can be easily accessed by lifting up the seat.

For fishing adventures, the backrest of the mezzanine seat can be pulled down to reveal a bait prep area. This area comes equipped with a non-slip surface, cutting board, and tackle storage. For additional storage, the leaning post has a door on each side that opens to reveal more tackle storage and drawers.

Other Features in the Leaning Post Area:

  • Toe kicks
  • Battery bank
  • 100-AMP battery charger
  • Console footrest storage

Stern

Similar to the helm, you have another entertainment zone located here at the stern. In the center, you will find a bench that seats three to four people. This bench seat is ideal as it can be stored when not in use. Towards the very back, there are handles that when pulled, reveal a large seat with a backrest.

At the very back of the stern is a large and spacious swim platform that surrounds the engines. You can hang out in this area when docked or anchored as it makes the perfect deck.
