I have one in Barnaget NJ. Great Sailing boat very fast. Light sail single handed. Sails great in heavy weather with single reef main 20+ knots. 120 JIB. Not fast in sailing off the wind. Needs 130 jib. New roller ferrel.Dave Wright said:I have a 1987 tanzer 25 hull #007. It is a very unique boat with a fractional rig,shoal keel 9'6" beam aft cabin large cockpit, great boat. Anyone out there with one?
My bad... I didn't realize that Tanzer had produced a 25 footer in the later J/N line. Different boats altogether, and in a different era too.I'm aware of 7 that have inboards, there are probably more. I'm only aware of two with wheel steering, Asylum (ob/fin) and Gunner (ib/fin).
Hey all I am looking at purchasing a Tanzer 25 Shoal Keel, never sailed a shoal always fin, was going to use it on Lake Simcoe, do you guys feel thats a good idea or should i up for a deeper draft?Hi,
I'm new to this forum (I live in Blainville, 25 km North of Montreal, Quebec).
I'm curious about your Tanzer 25 sailboat. Are you sure it is the number 007?
If this is the case, I think you are the owner of one of the rare original Tanzer 25 boats. From what I know, only 16 were built before Tanzer has been in bankrupcy (sorry, not sure of the orthograph). I ask about the number 007 because we were told that the original 16 boats were built before 1987. After that, some other Tanzer 25 were built (#17 ond over), but the specs were slightly changed and the quality of their construction has declined compared to original ones.
I bought the number 10 and according to the serial number, it was made in 1986.
