The Tartan 34c is a true S&S designed classic. From 1967-78, 525 hulls were produced. In 1968 she won her class in the Southern Ocean Racing Circuit and then again in the Port Huron-Mackinac Race, followed by the Marblehead-Halifax Race. In fact, to this day they are still winning in club competitions all over. Besides Olin and Rod Stephens, the deck was developed by Gerhard Gilgenast, German Frers Jr., and Francis Kinney. Production came to an end when the factory burned down and molds were destroyed. This led to the newly organized Tartan Marine where production resumed. The 34c's cruising prowess has been fully realized as the design has been sailed single-handed around the world - across the Pacific to Hawaii, around the Horn of South Africa - not to mention numerous other passages.
Today she is considered to be a moderately heavy keel-centerboard sloop with graceful overhangs, wide side decks, a long 8' cockpit and moderate sail plan. Olin Stephens referred to her as a "masterpiece", as everything seems to work well. She sleeps up to six in a cabin trimmed in teak with 6' 2" headroom. The galley is starboard of the companionway with good storage and cooler accessible from the cockpit as well. There's a nav station to port forward of the quarter berth. The port settee will open to a double, and the starboard settee is a single with good storage above both. The table is custom made oak fixed in place and has leaves. She is very easy to single-hand as the jib sheet winches and mainsheet are positioned near the helm.
This classic Tartan is beautiful. The current owner purchased it a year ago and has picked up right where the previous owner left off. Boat is in great shape and ready to set sail today. All the sails are in good condition, Spinnaker, main sail, 2 jib sails and an extra Genoa sail.
