37' Tartan 1976 Florence


The Tartan 37 is considered one of today’s classic cruising yachts. Designed by Sparkman and Stephens with a lot of direct input from Tartan Yachts, the boat was introduced in 1976. Initially conceived as a boat that could be sold as a racer as well as a cruiser, it was the shoal draft centerboard cruiser that really took off with a remarkable number of boats built.

The boat is known for its sound construction quality and smart sailing abilities and moderate pricing. Owners unanimously love their Tartans. 

The Tartan's are also known for their great sailing characteristics and stout construction.

This shoal drafted sailboat draws only 4.5' with a 8' extension on a wing keel for blue water.

Perfect for Keys, Bahamas or any other shallow draft destination.

"Florence" is a 1976 that has been restored and been travelling all of the gulf of mexico, keys, and Bahamas with just about everything refitted, replaced, and reconditioned.

New standing and running rigging in 2014 lots of upgrades and new equipment.

Boat has no leaks and is a USCG documented vessel so easy international in and out as well as title change over.

It is ready to go cruising today........

Motor is Westerbeke 40 (Perkins 4108) 40hp Diesel with cruising speed of 6-8kts and max speed of 8kts, total engine hours is 1750 on hobbs meter.  The engine was overhauled with new fuel injectors and primary and secondary filter, lines, injector pump, and many other items.  Runs and drives beautifully.

Battery bank is balanced with 3 Intimidator AGM batteries with high output alternator and 165 Watt solar panels for continuous use with refrigeration, lights, sound system etc with no down time even without running engine.  Each solar panel has its own 28Amp solar power charge controller as well as a alternator isolator installed.  The system is also setup for shore-side charging with a really nice automatic battery tender that was purchased new in 2015 and will run automatically when plugged into shore power.  The shore power cord is included in the sale and the boat is wired for 120v electric.  The CruiseAir 120v heat pump is a A/C unit and Heater and works well only when on shore power as there is no generator installed on the boat.  All interior lights were converted to LED in 2014 for maximum efficiency.  

12volt refrigeration installed in main galley icebox provides excellent cooling for a very large fridge area.  This is new as of 2015

The 2 burner stove and oven is a super safe and easy to use non pressurized alcohol Origo 6000, excellent for offshore use and easy to get fuel for in far off places…also easy to store space fuel without endangering the crew unlike propane etc.

All running and standing rigging was replaced in 2014-2015 including a full mast removal and refit.  The top of the mast with bendix and all instruments were replaced.  New multifunction smart mast light was added as well as a super bright LED deck light.  Mast fast track was added to the mail sail and mast slide to make single handed operation as easy as possible.  There we also 3 lever cleats installed again for easy single handling at halyard, mainsheet, and rollerfulling line.  The monitor windvane autopilot was installed in 2014 and works well in light and high winds to keep the boat on an excellent course in all weather conditions.  

Cockpit bimini was custom made in 2013 or so and had all the all weather covers to go all of the way around.  There is also a replacement middle top connector as well as covers for the wind screen as well as other ports and hatches

All port lights were replaced in 2014 with the highest quality tinted glass port lights.  The two main hatches were also replaced and installed new in 2014, they are very tight and look great.  A solar exhaust fan was installed as well to keep air flowing if at dock.  

The dingy is a hard sided sailing dingy, it has a solid foam core, it comes with oars and a 4hp new Suzuki 4-stoke engine.  The boat easily is pulled on board using halyard and fits and sails nicely between mast and forestay.  The jib has no problem tacking above it in the ocean.  

The boat also comes with various sails and lines including a large spiniker pole that is stored out of the way on the starboard safety line mounts.  

Stainless steel propane sailing grill is included

50lbs and 100lbs anchor with 270’ rode with 100’ high strength chain and another 100’ thicker chain.
