Re: Tartan 37-C for sale

Erick,
The stability of the centerboard version vs. the fixed keel version is this: The deep, fixed keel will hit the bottom sooner! Just kidding, mostly. The fixed keel will point just slightly higher than the board version but as far as stability, there isn't much difference. The CB version of the Tartan 37 has a 48% ballast/displacement ratio giving her a very stable feel. She will settle down at 20-25 degrees of heel and sail like a dog with a bone in her teeth. I will rarely use my centerboard unless I want to get that last 5 degrees of pointing ability. With the board up, I can easily take through 80-85 degrees, with it down, it's 80. The Tartan 37, centerboard version or not, is a very stable boat with a good pedigree. Here are some links to reviews:

And there's a couple of reviews from Practical Sailor, one as recently as this past January, but you need a subscription to view it.

Tartan 37 owners are usually very proud of their boats because they are honest boats designed and built during period of IOR racing which yielded a beautiful hull form that simply catches your eye. That's a hard thing to do today with such wide beams carried so far aft.

I attached another review from water sailing">Blue Water Sailing Magazine

Re: Tartan 37-C for sale

Apparently an earlier post I thought I submitted, didn't.

Tortuga's Lie is berthed on the Lower Potomac, just off of the Chesapeake Bay.

Thanks for all of your interest!

Sincerely,
Tom

Re: Tartan 37-C for sale

Very pretty boat and it certainly does look like it has been maintained. There are few boats out there that have been really well looked after. Yes you have to pay a bit more but nothing compared to what it actually cost the owner and nothing compared to what it would cost you if you bought a cheaper run down boat and tried to put it in really good condition. A savvy buyer won't let this boat hang around long.

We are ex Tartan owners and put thousands of offshore miles on ours, they are great offshore boats built to a standard that does not exist with the current crop of production entry level boats. Good luck on your sale!
