Not aware of a Tartan 37 center cockpit. The 3700 is an aft cockpit?

Still, aft cockpit. That is 37' and you say you want 38-42, but I've always been a fan of Tartans, all the way back to the IOR '70's 41. Do a search on this forum and you'll find mostly positive reviews, but I've read some minor issues with newer Tartans.

Personally, if they were in my price range I would add them to my list to consider.

Re: tartan 37 2011

The CCR is a description of the rig -- Cruising Control Rig. It is an aft cockpit boat that is distinguished from the earlier 3700's by a dual furler headsail setup with a smaller jib and a reaching headsail. I believe most also came with a roller furling boom.

There were some issues with some of the '00 series Tartans prior to a company ownership transition. If the boat you're looking at is a 2011, those issues were, I believe, resolved. That said, you'll want a surveyor who knows the more recent Tartans to look it over carefully.

We've sailed on a friend's 4100 and I've crewed offshore on a 4600. Those are all Tim Jackett designs that differ from the 3700 mostly in size, but none had the CCR rig. They sail well in a broad range of conditions. I will admit to lusting after the 4100 until we got our boat.

Re: tartan 37 2011

Tartans are quality boats but I wouldn't class the 3700CCR as a typical "cruising" yacht. The older Tartan 37s were much more in line with the traditional concept of a cruiser - sea kindly, narrower beam, etc...
