Re: tartan VS E35

Seems like it really boils down to what hits your heart strings, and condition. The center board would give some really nice options in the keys/Caribbean. There is an even foot of difference in draft. S&S design verses a King design, still to me it would boil down to condition an quality of maintenance.

That is the 35-2. I vote for the Ericson. It will sail circles around the Tartan.

Re: tartan VS E35

All depends on condition, hours on the engine, equipment and price. Everything being equal, I'd chose the Tartan. How old is the rigging, sails, electronics?

Assuming that this is your Ericson choice: ERICSON 35-2 sailboat specifications and details on
(there are 2 very different Ericson 35's)
and this is your Tartan 34 choice: TARTAN 34 C sailboat specifications and details on

I would choose the T 34 C for both it's build quality and the center board allowing you a shoal draft boat. Ericson's also have a good reputation but the T34 C was designed by Sparkman & Stephens, famous for their good designs.

Ericson, I think they're just a better build quality.

tartan VS E35

A 75 ericson 35 and a 76 tartan 34. Both with atomic 4's. If you had your choice of the two which one would you buy. They are both sloops. The Tartan has a swing board. Sailing with upgrades after purchase of course,

East coast and
Possible Caribean sailing.
