addendum to Soclare
Soclare makes very good replies about the Tartan models, but it should respectfully be pointed out that the Blackwatch 37s were hull nos. 1-15, produced from 1965 to mid 1968. Hull numbers 16-32 were also produced, as Soclare correctly notes, and these were named the Tartan Classics, 1968 to 1970, when the factory burned down. On the Classic, the head was moved forward and portside, a change in the kitchen area and also available with a centerboard, as well as having a straight coach house, whereas the Blackwatch was only offered in a full keel. More history on the Blackwatch boats can be found at Tartan Classic 37 Blackwatch History

37-1 was the Ted Hood designed Blackwatch, 1967-71 (32 built)
37-2 is the Sparkman & Stephens Classic, 1976-89 (486 built)
37-3 is the Tim Jackett designed 372, 1988-93 (60 built)
The Tartan 38 is the deep keel S&S 37 with a slightly taller rig. (54' vs 52')

Can anyone explain why there is such a difference in the ratings between the T 37-1, T 37-2 and T37-3?
What year[s] was the T 37-1 manufactured? T37-2? T37-3?

|T37SOLARE||A few of the last boats produced had Scheel keels. About 10% were deep keels, they are sometimes referred to as a T-38.|

Leeway IMO is not an issue on the T37C.

Ladies and gentleman, thank you VERY much for such insightful comments. As always sailnet comes through!
A couple more clarifying questions?
1. How does the T 37 CB point compared to other cruisers such as Valiant 40? Tayana 37? Cal 39? Sabre 38[fixed keel]
2. Regarding leeway, is it minimal and of little or no concern? Or is it something that could make clawing off a lee shore more challenging?
Thanks tons guys!!!

Look at a C&C 35 MKIII K/C. Points closer and sails faster than the Tartan 37s we have encountered. Jib tracks further inward to deck house. Double spreader rig vs single. Slightly faster boat and made well like the Tartan. PHRF rated 120-127.
Also check out Sabre 36. Another quick well made boat

Tartan 37 CB vs. Keel
Actually, the PHRF ratings are decidedly not the same. I own a T37 fixed keel (6' 7" draft) and can tell you that I must carry a lower PHRF than a CB boat.
I have sailed aboard several CB T37's and they perform well to windward with the board down. My fixed keeler will outpoint them by a few degrees and will not exhibit as much leeway while doing so - hence the lower rating.
Off the wind, things equal out. They are similar on a reach and a run, although the CB boat gives you the option of board up to reduce drag when running.
T37 #224 Higher Porpoise
