Pros:
Cons:


Great sailing boat. Sturdy & Fast. If you can sail well, you can keep up with many 30-footers. Likes a little bit of heel, then digs in and starts to fly. Good light-air boat. Easy to singlehand, especially w/ roller furling. Shoal keel version only draws 2'-8", and is easier to balance and tracks better than fin keel, but doesn't point upwind quite as well. Lots of space inside & storage for a boat this size. Nicely fitted out. Tanzers are quite a good value in many areas, because they are not as well known as some lesser boats. Tanzer internet mailing list is a great group.

Pros:
Cons:

Great uy wind boat. If the rig is tuned correctly it will
out point most boats. The fin keel makes turning in tight
quarters great. One weakness is the short cockpit, under
sail it is 3 people max in the cockpit, most find sitting on
the rail more comfortable. This is a great club racer and
even better two person weekend cruiser.

Pros:
Cons:

Weekend or short cruiser very good in light to moderate air.
Easily short handed with a Autohelm 800. Good boat for a
couple. Low maintinance, easily trailed, fun boat to race
[we go in the fun races in the Shediac N.B. area.]

Pros:
Cons:

I have now had our boat just about 6 months. I made the right choice for sure. It can handle some of the heaviest water I have seen in my boating life.

We were in the Chesapeake Bay sailing home on the 5th of July in 3 foot seas with 15 knot winds. An hour later it was 50 knot winds (very strong low pressure system...not a good day for sailing) with 8 to 10 foot seas. I am not talking swells either. During our ride we had waves break over the boat at least three time, and I was sure we would get knocked down. We never did. The boat handled like a charm, definately holding her own in very severe conditions.

My only, (and I mean ONLY) regret with this boat is the cockpit. There is only enough room for four adults or so. More can sit on deck if you want.

I am very impressed with this boat. I will definately be in the market for another Tanzer. If you are looking for a boat that is easy to sail in all winds, and a great weekender with a very nice cabin layout, I HIGHLY recommend this boat!

Nice first timer boat. Heals over alot but very stable. Lots of room and storage space for a craft of its size. Easy to pilot and good for crusing or racing.

Pros:
Cons:

The fin keel model is fast and points well. It'll keep up w/most 30 footers and can take the heavy going. Very solidly built, unlike the boats of the last 15 years. Can bounce off a rock and not be damaged. These boats don't blister. The rudder has a modificatiion available thru the Tanzer Association.

Pros:
Cons:

The negatives- . Headroom of 5'8 could be an issue for taller folks. Shelves in the cabin are a bit narrow to store things tidily. Lack of a chain locker forward can be a real pain for cruising. Stock Gibb rigging hardware can be hard to find replacements for now. Bilges are hard to drain, but thats not so bad because theres seldom anything in them.

The positives. - points well, everything is accessible for inspection and cleaning. Dry boat, seldom see much in the bilge. Clever cooking arrangements. Amazing value for the price, especially considering it is nearly the size of the T26. For the cruising we are doing, this boat fit an ideal niche of cost and size.

Pros:
Cons:

This is probably the only Tanzer sailing in Colorado. Home port is Carter Lake at an elevation of 5800 feet. It is in the foothills of the Rockies 50 miles northwest of Denver.
Pluses: Can handle strong gusty winds. Like the club foot selftacking jib. The wind here is generally light and shifty. Selftacking jib is a real plus.
Minuses: Shoal draft doesn't point to wind as good as a fin would.

Headroom is ok in the galley for poeple less than 6ft but preper to bang your head elsewhere until you get use to it ! I would like to have bigger cokpit when you have more than 4 friends aboard. Great boat single handled
