Tartan 3700 is a great performance cruiser. Cruising World chose the Tartan 3700 as its "Boat of the Year." Sail magazine named the Tartan 3700 a "Best Boat."
She is a classic. Her cabin is cherry paneled with a teak and holly sole, providing a warm, inviting feel. The topsides, cabin roof, deck and cockpit have appealing classic lines. Take the stern for example. Its swim platform is hidden behind a drop-down transom. The 3700 looks like a sailboat ought to look.
Serenity is a Tartan 3700 on steroids.
Several enhancements set Serenity above every other 3700. First, its diesel generator enables you to live comfortably offshore indefinitely. Ice wont melt. Enjoy as much heat or air conditioning as you want. The generator makes cruising as comfortable as your life at home.
Second, deploying Serenity's full enclosure turns your cockpit into a solarium. It captures solar heat even on overcast days. It also blocks wind and rain, so you can be warm and dry when the weather turns nasty.
Third, she is rigged for serious sailing. The 3700 has a PHRF rating of 113. Serenity improves on that with its asymmetrical spinnaker, top-down furler, cunningham, and adjustable genoa cars. Shes a joy to sail.
The generator, enclosure and asymmetrical spinnaker put Serenity above every other 3700 in the market, but theres more:
Quicksilver dinghy, 2-stroke Mercury motor and Garhauer motor lift.
Strong track system.
Impeller access port and SpeedSeal cover plate.
Racor fuel filter.
Wifi signal booster
Cut-out switch for cockpit speakers.
Cable/antenna nipple at the stern.
Other Tartan 3700s may have some of Serenity's enhancements but none has them all.
