Tartan 34, 3000, and Ten
Recently came across all of these in great condition in my price range. I have only actually sailed on a 10 and I personally adored it, loved the loojks, but of course it had a terribly sparse cabin (to be expected) i want to get a boat for a live aboard with soem offshore sailing work, eventually wihtin the next year or so to the virgin islands to visit friends and back. My absolute end goal wiill be a trans ocean crossing and depending a possible circumnavigation. What's the chance fo this in a Tartan,? Anyone living aboard.
i really loved the 10, just the overall feel and everythign about it, but i am assumign it's not fit for any long term work or living aboard, even converted or not.
so any opinions on a tartan 34 would be appreciated. my main criteria are
Safety (particularly in bad weather)
the other boat i'm currently eyeing up is an incredibly well taken care fo W32.
