1979 Tartan 37 — Looking for a Good Home

It’s time to pass our beloved Tartan 37 on to her next caretaker. It took us a long time to be sure we were making the best decision for us; change is never easy. But as each chapter closes, a new one begins — and we’re extremely excited for the next page in our book!

We’ll dive into this more in a bit, but don’t worry, we’re not done sailing! As you know, we’ve put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into our boat (literally and figuratively) and have made a number of large improvements over the years which have been documented in our video series  and on our website here: Upgrades to our Tartan 37 Sailboat

But she is an old boat and as such she will continue to require regular maintenance and updates, and we’re hoping to find someone who is willing and able to continue caring for her the way we did.

The boat is currently located in Central Florida on the Okeechobee Waterway at a private dock. We will be there at the end of October and will be available to show it to interested parties in early November.

We will officially list the boat for sale and announce it to the general public in the next couple of weeks, but we wanted to let you know first. If you are interested, please contact us  or send an email to

Fair winds!
