Tartan 37 - Classic good looks The Tartan 37 probably has the most devoted owners and fans of any boat ever built by Tartan. She is one of the truly classis boats of all time. This keel/centerboard boats sails incredibly well, will go anywhere and with Tartan's great workmanship should last (almost) forever.

This particular vessel, has had many, many upgrades. New engine, new sails, full winter cover ...Tartan 37 salondetails to follow.

This is the traditional Tartan 37 layout. The salon features an L-shaped settee to port which can convert to a double, with a table with a single leaf. The dining table fold up against the forward bulkhead and extends to easily seat five or six.  This forms a dinette to port, with the option of adding a guest or two on the starboard settee. The starboard side, features a single settee which can extend to a single berth. Behind that is a sea berth. The traditional interior is beautifully finished with mahogany and a teak and holly cabin sole.

There are three opening ports, and a large overhead opening hatch. There is storage behind all of the seating and under pilot berth.

The galley is to starboard at the base of the companionway. It features a double basin sink (New 2012) with a new spray faucet (New 2014) and new Microwave (2012). The large icebox has Adler Barbour refrigeration (it does need a new compressor), and a small freezer compartment. It has a Princess Gourmet II Double burner gimbaled Stove/Oven (New 2012) with a new 5 gallon Propane tank (New 2012).

The Navigation Station is across to port. It has a unique seating arrangement, that folds up to form a quarterberth, and down to provide seating for the nav station. There is a chart light, one opening Port Light, Table storage, three drawers and a storage locker. Quarter Berth behind the nav station also has one fixed Port Light. The instrumentation panel at the nav station, hinges down to provide easy access.

The head is forward of the salon and to port. It has a sink and a faucet which extends to become a shower (new 2012). There is a Raritan manual head (rebuilt in 2013) with 15 gallon holding tank, a shower drain and one opening Port Light. Forward is Tartan 37 galleythe Vee-berth.
