Notes

Nearly the same as the earlier BLACK WATCH 37, but with all glass coach roof instead of wood, for easier maintenance.
Available also as a keel-centerboarder
(Draft: BD:9.33’/2.84m BU: 3.83’/1.17m)
Sloop or yawl.
The HOOD 37, built by Little Harbor Yachts, is said to be based on the same design.
Not to be confused with the S&S designed, TARTAN 37-2, introduced in 1976.
See BLACK WATCH 37 for more details.
