The Sparkman & Stephens Tartan 37 was an immensely popular boat. Production began in 1976 and ran through 1989. Quality construction, an extraordinary designer, sailing performance that was hard to beat, and a comfortable and roomy interior made this boat hugely desirable, both then and now.
CRICKET is hull 145 of 489 constructed and was built in 1978 as a 1979 model. She has had excellent care and shows beautifully. She is clean and neat with a hull that sparkles. Her bilges are as clean and dry as any you will ever find. Come have a look while she's still in the water.
