Tartan 33

Hello,
Regarding the Tartan 33 (1979-1984), I'm considering this boat for purchase and would be interested in hearing opinions and impressions from current and/or past owners. In particular, sailing characteristics at different points of sail, potential speed, and problems to be aware of in a 30 year old boat in addition to the normal balsa core issues.
Thanks in advance for any response.

Re: Tartan 33

No first hand exp. w/Tartan 33. I am familiar with the T27 & T30 which were from that era and I can say that they were well made boats.

I do note that there seem to be 3 "flavors" of the T33 listed here:
TARTAN 33 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

Std. fractional rig, Masthead rig & small masted rig.
Masthead rig = more sail area.

Also of note is that this is a "sheel" keel boat. The sheel keel was S&S's idea for a shoal draft boat. Shoal draft boats tend to not point as high upwind as a standard fin keel design.
