The Tartan 37 is considered one of today’s classic cruising yachts.

Designed by Sparkman and Stephens with a lot of direct input from Tartan Yachts, the boat is known for its sound construction quality and smart sailing abilities and moderate pricing.

Owners unanimously love their Tartans.

Configuration:

For a boat designed in the mid 1970s the hull looks remarkably modern. There’s a generous rake in the bow, the sheer line is quite straight which sweeps back to a reverse transom. From above the hull has a diamond shape and is quite beamy for the era.

Interior & Layout:

Down below, the interior is traditional, however with close to 12 feet of beam, the Tartan 37 is larger than you might expect. Teak veneer and trim is used abundantly and white formica is used overhead. Overall, the level of joinery work is very good.

In the forepeak, the two single berths can be converted into a double with an insert. Moving further back the head is to port and has a integral shower, the arrangement is tight but functional. In the salon the settees are offset, the starboard one serves well as a sea-going berth and the port settee can be converted into a double. Further aft on port is the nav-station next to the companionway and a double quarter-berth, something of a luxury in a boat this size. Opposite is a functional U-shaped galley.

Final Thoughts:

The Tartan 37 has a reputation for being stable with good upwind performance, but really excels downwind on a reach. The rudder is efficient and provides plenty of control and the boat is relatively dry, especially when configured with a decent dodger. The boat is known to be easy to single hand and fun to sail.

The Tartan 37s are moderately priced and offer good value. They have maintained their values due to quality contructions, good reputation and a loyal following among owners. 

 

The owners of this vessel have constantly and meticulously maintained this vessel over the years to accommodate their many trips across the Dry Tortugas, passage sailing from Seattle to South California and the San Juan Islands.
