1984 Freedom Cat Ketch vs. 1979 Seafarer Swiftsure vs. 1972 Tartan 34c

Hi all,

Subject line pretty much says it all.
1984 Freedom Cat Ketch 28 vs. 1979 Seafarer Swiftsure 30 vs. 1972 Tartan 34c
Moving towards survey time after being thrown off the horse on a previous survey wherein my dream boat turned out not to be so dreamy.

Thanks very much,

That is something of a no brainer. Assuming they are all in equal in an equal condition, the clear winner is the Tartan 34. Its a better built better sailing boat than the other two. But before I would buy a Tartan 34, unless shoal draft was important, I would prefer a Tartan 30.
