T34s and T37s

I have a quick question for the Tartan crowd: Apart from the 3' difference in length, what are the primary differences in design between the two boats? What sort of sailing is one more suitable for than the other? Thanks.

Although the response to this query has been overwhelming, I decided to bump it up anyway.

Sorry, I donít know much about the 34. Have you tried the Tartan owners group at http://www.tartanowners.org/

Be happy to discuss some of the characteristics of the 37, but you asked about the layout. more at http://www.tartan37.com/

The Tartan 37 designed by Sparkman and Stevens. The hull has a modified fin keel with centerboard and skeg-hung rudder. V-berth forward, with shelves, bureau and hanging lockers. In the salon to port, there is an L-shaped dinette with bulkhead-mounted dining table. To starboard there is a straight settee with pilot berth outboard above. The large nav station with chart table is aft to port; the U-shaped galley is opposite.

Sailhog, These boats, both designed by S&S, share the same philosophy as a performance cruiser of the 70's. The 34 was designed earlier and went out of production just about the same time as the 37 came into production.
The 34 and 37 are both centerboarders with a modified fin and a skeg to protect the rudder. The 37 is much larger down below and has more tankage, but is also more expensive. Both boats will have good sailing characteristics and good manners in heavy weather for the balast/displacement ratios are quite respectable at 44% for the 34 and 48% for the 37.
I've had my T-37 for 12 years and can say that she hasn't let me down!!! PLus she has beautiful lines.
