I thought the Tartan 37 and the Tayana 37 were the same boat, but by different manufacturers...

The T37 is not a boat for the Chesapeake Bay but it is a classic blue water boat that is both affordable and safe as well as being comfortable at sea. Perry designed the boat for that...not for speed.

camaraderie Jeff..Nothing wrong with that boat! Never have seen one in person but the pix and design look good. Looks a bit fuller in the stern than the T37.
Do you know many of these were built? Looks like it was designed as a cutter but everything on line is a sloop? Also...was rod rigging standard...don't particularly like that on a cruising boat.

Jeff_H In fairness, the T-37 is on my default list for serious offshore cruisers on a budget. Personally I like the also Perry designed Valliant 37 better in all ways, but hey that's just me.

Yup...but the blue-water prize usually goes to boat that finish the race regardless of the conditions. The SFO rating (suitablity for oceans) rating is 100%!!

Just my rating folks...and Jeff and I have vastly different choices on what we would choose to take us across oceans which is what makes the world go round.

CalypsoP35 While PHRF NE may not have rated any Tanyan 37s, they do list the base handicap for a Tanyan 37 in New England as being 174.
08-14-2007 09:03 AM
Jeff_H The Tayana 37 has PHRF ratings between 174 and 193 depending on region and perhaps configuration , the only two ratings that I found for the T37. By way of comparasion, a Southern Cross 39 rates around 138, a moderately fast, 1970's era 37 foot coastal cruiser would have a rating down around 110-120. A late 1970's performance cruiser might rate somewhere down around 72-90 and a modern performance coastal cruiser might rate in the 50's.

Needless to say, the rating for the Tayana falls somewhere slower than very slow.

CalypsoP35 I believe PHRFs vary by the area you will be racing in. There are regional PHRF associations that set the PHRF ratings for that area of the country. If you are planning on racing you will need to be certified by the local association. The PHRF rating is also affected by the type of equipment you have, such as exotic sails, folding props, etc. Once you find your local PHRF association they typically list all the boats they have rated so you should be able to get an idea as to the rating you are looking for. Here is the address for the New England Phrf association, it should answer a lot of your questions. www.phrfne.org/
