Notes

(S&S design #2253) Sometimes referred to as TARTAN 37C.
The TARTAN 37 became one of the builders best selling models.
Derived from the TARTAN 38, more of a racer with a deep keel and tall rig.
Most boats were delivered with the keel/cb and standard rig as shown here. A tall rig and fixed keel were also available.
Draft for fixed keel: 6.58’/2.0m
Another boat based on the same design was built in England and called the CONDOR 37.
