Re: MId to late 80's Tartan 28
TARTAN 28 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
Typical Tartan, solid design and a standard traditional layout by the looks of it. Says they built 136 of them so there must be experience around.
Handsome boat, good pedigree, decent numbers... no rocketship (SA/D under 18) but looks a good stable cruiser.
1984 Fast/Nicholson 345 "FastForward"
