Smile Hanse 35' vs. Tartan 34'?

Hi All- I'm looking to buy a new or gently used boat for sailing the Chesapeake. I like the self tacking jibs of both the Hanse and the Tartan for ease of use. I want a boat that is responsive in light wind, but also comfortable. This will be my first boat. Any thoughts on these boats? Thanks!

looked at the Hanse....liked alot, way out of my Budget but hey sweet ride...talk to Joe up @ Annapolis Yacht sales, he had a couple 37's and a 40 that were new and not sold after 2 years prob work you a GREAT deal....Tell him Josh from freeway sent you

I love to sail, coming from a Swordboat capt's loin one would think I'd of caught the bug long before now! Oh well, this ones for you Bisque...(My Father may he RIP)

Now If I could only stay away from working on the damn things I could sail more!

These are not two boats on the same category. The Tartan has much better interiors and it is a much more expensive boat. I find the tartan 34 a lovely boat with a great interior. Some problems have been reported about recent Tartan quality issues (there are a thread on sailnet about it). I don't know if they have overcome that problem with the new ownership and all.

If you want a more sportive amusing and faster boat to sail you should look at boats with the same category of interior workmanship and quality (as the Tartan 34), like the Dehler 35, The Arcona 34 or the Finngulf 331. I believe they all have American dealers. I would also have a look at the Salona 34. The interior is a lot better than the one from Hanse, the boat has a beautiful classic/modern look and is not as expensive as the Tartan. Just a bit more than the Hanse.

Probably all of those boats can be equipped with a self tacking jib even if I don't think that would be a great advantage in such a small boat.

Dehler 32 and 45 nominated.

Thanks for the responses! Paulo, you've given me a lot to think about. You're right, they are very different boats. I'm drawn to the Hanse for the quick, light, ease of sailing and I'm drawn to the Tartan for pure comfort. Alas, I have a bad back and the Tartan has a really comfy cockpit with high coamings. I know, I know, not what most sailors would base a decision on, but hey, I've got to take the back into consideration. Thanks for posting links to those beautiful boats. I'm not sure my perfect boat exists, fast, easy to sail with a comfortable cockpit and solid construction. Dream, dream, dream.....

In the end, what is "YOUR" perfect boat, is what you should get vs what Paulo, myself or others say about a given boat. I personally do not like boats with really high coamins, as when the boat heels, it is harder to go to the outside to see what is going on or hike for that matter. BUT, I understand the back issue too!

Personally, I would go with a Hanse over the Tartan as I prefer the interior styling over the Tartan, along with it seems to be a quicker sailing boat. Reality is, I would go with Dehler over the Hanse or Tartan, or an Elan. But, if any of these brands showed up in my slip.....I be happy!
