1974 Tartan 30 Classic Sailboat
Author Last Post
Tartan 301974 Tartan 30 Classic Sailboat ($1000 Winter Discount if you buy before Feb end - makes a great summer starter!)

Extremely well cared for, many upgrades.

For more photos, see this Craigslist post.

A MAIN point is this Tartan has been re-powered with a Lewmar Diesel with low hours. Engine runs very well, NO known issues and well maintained. A Diesel is VERY preferable over the normal Atomic 4 engines most Tartan's have.

This is the Center Galley configuration (with two aft quarter-berths) - this version is sought after since the interior has a better layout & more useful Galley/Icebox.

The boat handles very well and is a great sloop to sail. With a solid Genoa furler and Lazy Jacks StackPack on the main she can be on/off the mooring & sailing in under 5 minutes ! She has a tiller vs. a wheel which makes her very exciting to sail and provides more room in the Cockpit.

Some key items:
Numerous sets of sails in the inventory including
- Two Mains
