Considering a Tartan 34 or 35 Ft Cruiser

Would appreciate any thoughts on Tartan 3500s around 1997 and later models up to about 2002. Significant differences etc. Seems like there are some pretty good deals on 3500s built in 1996 to 1998. Also earlier model 34 footers might also be good deals. Thanks.

For what kind of use?? Racing, Weekending on bays, offshore cruising, live aboard cruising, and WHERE?

The use would be for cruising Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands. Live aboard use for perhaps a week at most for two to four people at a time.

A fine choice for that purpose. There have been some discussions here regarding later built "00" Tartan models that you may wish to review but I don't think there have been any significant issues with the model years you are considering.

Purrrrrrfect boat for NW sailing! Altho personally, I would prefer one that was a bit faster for racing. But Tartan makes a nice boat for the type of wind/weather etc we get around here. Spouse likes the 37 over the 35, but that's another story and many more $$$$$!
