Tartan 3000 thoughts?

Hey guys, I've been looking at a 1983 Tartan 3000 for sale that would be used as a live aboard, coastal cruiser, and a beer night racer. I've determined that everything is in good shape and good working condition aside from some minor cosmetics on the inside. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with these boats as far as sailing them and their reputation goes. I would love to hear a little more about them if anyone has more info!

Cheers,
Connor

"Guys"? lol ( I know it's generic)

How about the Keel, rudder and overall hull below the water line? It's an old boat. you WANT to be very sure of the keel, keel bolts (if it has them) water logged rudder? Chain plates? Tiller head and bearings?

Re: Tartan 3000 thoughts?

Thanks for the reply Denise! And those generics can really bite you haha never can be sure of the audience. But in regards to your questions, everything above the water line looks in good condition, the dealer is a friend I know personally and has a good eye for boats so I trust his opinion but regardless I'm still having a diver give it a good look around this weekend to make double sure. The boat was hauled a year ago and everything was in good working order at that time but you never know down here in Charleston with the way the water is. Would you happen to have any sailing experience on a boat of this type?

Re: Tartan 3000 thoughts?

sailed them in the day, and they generally sail very well. Age can be expensive and she is small for liveaboard. We (three) were crowded on a 3-5 day race. Tankage is small and she is narrow when compared to similar size boats of today.

Survey, survey, survey....not just a diver looking. Dealers and brokers are in it to sell boats. I would look at some similar size boats before deciding. Sabre, Hunter, Beneteau, all come to mind, and be sure to buy the best boat you can afford.

Re: Tartan 3000 thoughts?

Yea I understand and a survey would serve me well in the long run and would be a sound investment. As far as looking at boats in similar size for the price point this is the best so far. I've looked at a few others including hunters, oday, and one wildly expensive beneteau just for kicks but the boat market is slim here and I haven't had much luck on finding a boat that's priced in my budget, but then again I'm no expert on the boat market either so take that for what it's worth. Given that he's only charging 12k (which is pushing it) I'm interested but it leaves me to wonder why when the only thing is supposedly the headliner and carpeting that needs to be done or would you think that's a fair price as a general ballpark since you obviously can't take a look at the boat haha. It seems competitive with others I've viewed.

Re: Tartan 3000 thoughts?

The T3000 is a decent boat for its size from the 1980s. Not the most spacious interior (no quarter berth!), but a good sailing boat. If it has the Universal 5411 engine, be aware that it is raw water cooled and may be ready for replacement.
