Relocation on the Chesapeake is possible
Tartan 34C owner needs an experienced sailing partner. No investment!!!
Partner should expect to "Captain" the sloop-rigged, diesel powered craft on his own, with his own people, and with his own schedule. Incidental expenses will be discussed.
Owner and his crew expect the partner to join them occasionally for "shakedown" day sails and possible trip planning. Beer consumption while tied at the dock is required. The owner wants the boat to get more attention and more use than he can give it alone.
The 1976 34C Tartan is well equipped topside with a very good genoa, a good main, and well maintained hardware. This is an overpowered sailboat with a reputation for excellent performance. The beam is 10-6. Some appearance work will be done topside during the season, but it will not interfere with sailing.
Below deck the cabin is poorly equipped; the galley was never properly outfitted. The liquid fuel stoves have been thrown overboard. The built-in ice box is cute; good for beer but little else. The GPS, depth finder and VHF are all functional but will be replaced this year. (to gain space through better mounting configurations)
The diesel is a 1987 Yanmar, 3gm30f, (fresh water) with low hours. The diesel has been completely rebuilt; exhaust, injection system, alternator, starter, pumps. It's like new, and will be under warranty for the remainder of 2009.
The boat is "DRY" !!
