Tartan 34

Seriously considering buying a 1988 Tartan 34 that is in good condition and has been very well maintained. Owner is asking in low 60''s. Would like to know if price in good and other things to be aware of.
Thanks!

Best suggestion I can make is to go to the Sailnet Tartan email list and ask this question. there are a ton of T-34 owners on there and you will find out everything you want to know and more. In general, it''s a great boat. Sparkman and Stephens design, so it has a great pedigree. And Tartan builds a good boat, too.

I do not know if the price is good, obviously depends on a lot of things. However, I have spent some time on T 33 and T 34''s. They are well built boats, and nicely finished. However, I found a big difference between the Scheel Keels, and the deep fin keel. I would only consider one with a deep fin. The Scheel keel boats, while providing less draft, do sacrifice pointing ability, and do not ride as smoothly in a chop. Just my opinion.

The detail you''ve provided in your question is hardly enough information to endorse this particular boat however, if the survey results are good then go for it. This is a good sailing vessel, no obvious design or manufacturing fopas. I would agree that the deep draft version is much happier going to weather however, if you''re not planning to campaign her, it’s probably not an issue.

Here’s a free pearl of wisdom, “base your decision whether to buy this boat on facts rather than on Dollars”. That said, this is not a popular concept on this message board as some like to use weasel-words like “value priced” when they describe their Benehuntalinas because EVERYONE knows these are “value priced” boats! Grow up you guys!

Denr, as I agree with the first part of your post, I don''t know where you were coming from with your comments at the end. I say buy the boat you like. There are pros and cons to every boat. It has nothing to do with value priced. But you are constantly bashing something you obviously have a hair across your butt about. It greatly diminishes anything you might have said earlier in the post.

Good advice from Mitch...head to the Tartan list and ask away...many 34 owners on there and you may find someone who even knows the boat for sale. I own a T33 and enjoy it very much...the 34 is not a huge step up in terms of space...but it is a great boat.
