Centerboard Boats

Hello All -

I am looking for a centerboard / swing keel boat - 28-35' range. Is there a compendium of makes / models that feature centerboards? I've tried the "For Sale" websites with scattered success.

Thanks,
Ben

Tartan made a lot of boats in the 70 and 80s with centerboards. The ballast was all carried in fixed portion of keel and the centerboard was only used for better pointing ability.

A lot of companies that offered a centerboard's later gave up on them and just offered a fixed keel. I don't think people got enough value out of them to warrant the additional expense and maintence that they cause.
