1983 Tartan 37C located in Connecticut for sale

37'3' Tartan 37C


Description: 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 486 boats built.
The collaborative project that was to become the Tartan 37 started in the spring of 1975 when Tartan Yachts founder, Charlie Britton commissioned Sparkman and Stephens to design a new 37 footer. This wasn’t the first project between the two companies; there was already string of successful collaborations from as earlier as 1961 with the Tartan 27.
The 37 initially was specified as a boat that could be sold as a sloop or a ketch, and there was to be a cruising version and a race version. As the design progressed the ketch was dropped and the racer with its deep fin keel and tall rig was renamed the Tartan 38 while the Tartan 37 became the cruising version available in both fin keel or shoal draft centerboard.
By any standard of performance comparisons, the Tartan 37, for a boat of this class is anything but disappointing. She is quite stable, with windward and downwind sailing performance that is certainly acceptable. When reaching, as would be predicted, this boat excels.
Nobody should expect a shoal draft centerboard cruiser to break any records, however some of the race intent from the original spec shines through every now and again. For example, Steve Pettingill broke a record in the Port Huron to Mackinac Island single-handed race with his fin keel configured Ambergris. The boat is certainly capable of fast and comfortable 24-hour runs when passage-making.
"Tenacity" is hull number 417 and has served her current owners well. While they love her, they have decided it is time to move up into a larger boat and hence she is offered for sale. She now sits patiently waiting for her next caretakers to step aboard. Come and take a look at this timeless classic!
