I think Denr was just trying to wriggle a little room between his favorite Sabre and the Tartans of the world.

Hunter never built Tartans at any point in either boat mfr''s history. Tartan built boats originally pioneered by a number of other manufacturers. They built the American Pride 27 and the Soverel line of boats in the 1980''s. There was also a loose connection between C&C and Tartan at one point in the 1980''s that predates the current connection.

Geez'' the stuff you see on the internet! (Denr surely you know better than that.)

RMF, just how comfortable do you want those accommodations to be? In terms of a nice balance between that and performance, I agree with Jeff''s suggestions. Island Packets and the adjective "peformance" are seldom used in the same sentence but they do make blue passage in comfort, albeit slowly. If my memory serves me correctly Kimberlite, a great Tartan 37 with all the right stuff is for sale.

Is that a "Tunter?" Or a "Hartan?"

Careful, Denr. I''ve seen the boat, and it ain''t no early ''80''s Hunter.

Someone recently told me that they believe (and were fairly certain) that the Tartans were built by Hunter Marine in the early 80s. Is this true? If it is true then your "Kimberlite" could be a Hunter which would make them "Blue Water" crusiers.

i am rather prejudiced, as most boat owners,
i am very comfortable cruising and doin blue water in my tartan 37. It is a very sound fast cruiser that loves blue water.
there are many available at very reasonable prices.
you can see my boat kimberlite at
there are also some shots of her in bermudfa, vince the bartender at the dinghy club, shots offshore and photos in the carib. along with a video of her sailing downwind in a gale.

I would suggest that that middle ground is occupied by Tartans, Sabres,J-boats cruising series.
