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 was introduced in 1976. Initially conceived as a boat that could be sold as a racer as well as a cruiser, it was the shoal draft centerboard cruiser that really took off with a remarkable number of boats built.
The boat is known for its sound construction quality and smart sailing abilities and moderate pricing. Owners unanimously love their Tartans.
The Tartan's are also known for their great sailing characteristics and stout construction.
This shoal drafted sailboat draws only 4.5' with a 8' extension on a wing keel for blue water.
