Re: Glander Tavana 33

I always thought this would be a fun Bahamas boat for skinny exploring.
When needed, just get out and push her...

I have a Tavana that I sail regularly in North Fl. if anyone is still out there shared info, experiences, etc... could be useful/fun.

Not sure this topic is still alive... I requested couple of month ago, then again last week to join your group "Glander Tavana 33" on Facebook as well... Anyone already member by any chance ?

Do you guys still own your Tavana ???

Please keep me posted if the group is still running... I have a Tavana myself and I'm working hard on it to make it a classic... I would love to post and share ideas with other owners...

Let me know !

I have a Glander Tavana 33 that was just given to me a month ago. I took it out yesterday for the first time moving it from the PO's dock to my sail club on Mobile Bay. I like the boat and look forward to restoring her. This is an old thread, any other Glander owners still living?Attachment 36913

Re: Glander Tavana 33

I loved sailing my 33 foot yawl rigged Glander. I had it in Key Largo for 10 years and it's perfect for the shoal waters there and in the Bahamas. Centerboard up I only drew 3 feet but still could not come in 1 1/2 hours on either side of low tide I don't remember the hull # but the name was "La Tica" . Dooley Glander and I made the mold for the cockpit and as I recall, mine was the first all fiber glass. Last I heard she was in Coquina Key in St. Petersburg, Florida. Great boat

Shrimpman -- both john and I have emailed you directly, lmk if you didn't receive. it looks like the glasstreem make is totally bogus... they don't make sailboats.

Re: Glander Tavana 33

oh and latitudes,
i have been reading your site about "Us Too". sounds really awesome and I wish deep down that I could see your boat in person. I admire what you guys are doing and I wish to be doing the same soon. The black and white brochure photos were very interesting and the galley in the boat i am looking at has the same exact galley set up and steps as the one in the pic.

Re: Glander Tavana 33

okay now I am a little concerned. I just reviewed the title. on the title the measurements and engine info boat length and year match but under "make" there is nothing and under "model" it says glasstream. there is nothing on the title that actually says "Glander Tavana"..... But I swear that it is. I have looked at all other Tavanas online and her lines looks like all the others. I dont know what to do now. I am not getting a good feeling about this. Should I walk away or should I pursue???? I will still check for the hull numbers first chance i get. I really really want this boat. It has potential and not a bad deal if the owner wants only a 1000 dollars for it. What do you guys suggest in light of this new development. could it be possible that the boat is so old and that somewhere along the line somebody might have entered the wrong info?

Re: Glander Tavana 33

thank you latitudes for your help. I will go back and check every inch of the bulkhead in case I have missed it. I was looking all over the transom and every inch of the outer hull.
as far as the shape she is in .....the hull looks great. It just needs a fresh coat of paint. She needs a good cleaning first. The interior is shot. I will have to go thru and make a list of the things that need to fixed or replaced. I have the mast and rigging but no sails. I am not sure on the status of the engine yet but I know it is a Yanmar. I will try and get some pics soon.
