The Tartan 37 "Blackwatch" is a fast full keel sailboat. Enjoy the performance of a fin keel with the tracking of a full keel!
Come see "Alida". The hard work is done. (You know, all the stuff you end up eventually having to do on those "wicked-deal" boats that at the time seemed to good to pass up)
The concept of the Tartan 37' classic was inspired by Ted Hood, who built approximately 15 37' hulls that were designated as the Blackwatch 37. Alida is #16 and is the first of a series built by Douglas and McLeod who refined the design. The new name was the Tartan 37 Classic.
The present owners have professionally upgraded Alida in all areas including the hull, deck, interior, and most recently, a new Yanmar diesel in 2012. Alida is easy to inspect in Rockport, ME. Should you have the desire to own, sail and cruise a sweet sailing 'classic', let us show you aboard Alida!
