Pros:
Cons:


Renowned Sparkman & Stephens design, quality Tartan construction. This particular model is a double-spreader sloop rig with keel-centerboard underbody. Outstanding hull shape, balance, and motion through seas. Unparalleled ventilation with 8 opening ports, two dorades, and two hatches. Full nav station. Rigging led to cockpit.
When we purchased this boat (preowned), we fully expected to get Tartan's high quality, solid, enduring construction, and S&S's superb, stable design. We got ALL that, but what we hadn't expected was the SPEED we also received. The Tartan 3000 is much faster than we anticipated, which has given us greater cruising range than we thought. On the downside, the only weakness of any significance is that it is less spacious than several other 30-footers, and has less stowage space than we would like, but it does have a 6 cu foot icebox with 2 accesses (one in the cockpit!).
Great boat. Can't understand why Tartan stopped making this particular model. Personally, I was happy to trade off extra interior space for its outstanding sailing performance.

Great cruiser/racer! Our young family takes her on extended live-aboard vacations, and she wins her fair share of races too. (A cubby-full of flags includes 1st in Class, 3rd overall in the Lake Michigan Doublehander, and 1st place in Milwaukee Yacht Club's WNOS spring series...)

Double-spreader, full-keel version is powerful and forgiving, especially in heavy air...

Pros:
Cons:

Comfortable, well-constructed S&S design. Sails well, points well (even the centerboard model), faster than most comparables. Has typical Tartan athwartships head compartment, some love it, some hate it (I think it's fine). Lots of teak inside. Interior stowage is a bit skimpy but adequate. V-berth small for two adults- if this is an issue, try before you buy. VERY reasonably priced for what you get.
