Manufacturer Provided Description

When Tartan's designer, Tim Jackett, set out to create the latest in a long line of excellent 37-footers from Tartan, he thought past the “usual” approach to the performance/accommodation puzzle to arrive at a number of “wow, that's the way to go”-style solutions. The result is a fast and stable performance cruising yacht with an uncommonly welcoming and functional interior. A key aspect of the Tartan 3700's reassuring stability is the generous 12-foot 7-inch beam that is carried well aft, but with an innovative twist at the stern where topside flare adds plenty of deck and cockpit space, while keeping the transom waterline on the trim side. The tall, two-spreader masthead rig provides plenty of sail for rewarding performance in light winds, and each of the 3700's keel options is designed to make the boat stand up and keep driving in breezy conditions. The accommodation plan of the Tartan 3700 works equally well for feeding and watering a cruising crowd or for pampering a family or two cruising couples on an extended sailing vacation. The two staterooms are completely private, each with generous-size clothes drawers and hanging locker. And by cleverly angling the bulkheads of the dinette outward and angling the bulkheads of the nav station and galley inward the feel of the 3700's interior suits the particular function of each space.


Navy Blue NPG/ISO gelcoated hull, hand laminated with alternating layers of strand mat and uni-directional "E" glass locally reinforced. Fully cored with high strength, impact resistant synthetic core for stiffness with solid glass at all thru hull, chain plate and keel installations. Gelcoat backup layer is laminated and chemically bonded using a 4mm barrier coat of vinylester anti-corrosive resin for blister resistance.  Throw flush thru-hull fittings. Bulkheads and floor timbers are bonded using advanced adhesive technology. Built to meet ABS Plan Certification.

Deck and Rigging

White deck with sand gelcoated nonskid deck with patterned, contrasting non-skid. Hand laminated sandwich composite of polyester resin, uni-directional "E" glass and end grain balsa core. All hardware installation points are solid glass backed with aluminum plate or FRP backing plates. Joined to hull using stainless steel fasteners that are drilled and tapped into aluminum backing plates molded into hull flange, spaced to meet ABS specification for offshore sailing yachts. Bonded with 3M 5200 sealant.

The Tartan 3700 was first launched in 2000, and has been a top seller for Tartan ever since.The layout feels like most 40-footers and she truly has two owners cabins. 

The Tartan 3700 has won numerous awards including Cruising World’s Boat of the Year competition. 

Starting forward, we have a large double bunk. Second Wind was modified at the factory to have a flat faced bunk, instead of the filler notch. This adds a more comfortable bunk and also extra storage drawers. Tartan also added cherry hull sealings to the hull sides and deleted the vanity in lieu of a bureau storage locker. These modifications have become very popular and are preferred over the standard layout. 

The main salon is open and airy. The centreline drop leaf table accommodates 4-6 people and the starboard settee opens into a double bunk when needed. The nav station is forward facing and has all the breaker controls, with an opening desk and drawers for storage. The forward panel accommodates a radar/plotter easily.

On the starboard side is the galley, which has lots of counter and locker storage. The insulated icebox is large and has front and top opening access, as well as refrigeration. The microwave is in the aft locker. LPG Force 10 stove with oven gimbals outboard. This is a galley you will love. The ergonomics are right, and it is nice and secure offshore as well. 

The aft cabin has a large double bunk with plenty of locker storage. Many owners prefer to sleep aft in the boat, although either cabin makes a comfortable master.
