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

The traditional interior is beautifully finished with mahogany and a teak and holly cabin sole. The forward cabin is a vee berth arrangement with filler.  The head with shower is located next aft to port with a hanging locker and drawer opposite to starboard.

The main salon has an L-shaped dinette to port which converts to a double.  There is storage and shelves behind and above the settee. The dining table fold up against the forward bulkhead and extends to easily seat five or six.  On the port side there is a settee with a pilot berth above.  Aft and to port is the nav station with a large quarterberth behind it.

The U-shaped galley is to starboard at the base of the companionway.   She has double S.S. sink, alcohol stove, hot and cold pressure water and a large icebox.   The Adler Barbour refrigeration needs a new compressor.
