Class: Tartan 34C


  • The Tartan-34C is a traditional Sparkman Stephens CCA racer-cruiser designed in 1969, with wide decks and a generous cockpit that drains well. The companionway is designed for off-shore sailing such that up to three hatch boards can be set to prevent any boarding wave from going below.

    When going below there is a well-ventilated quarter berth to port, just aft of a small navigation table with chart drawer underneath. An 18’ opening port provides excellent air and light. Immediately to starboard is an L-shaped galley that has a 10” deep sink with a retractable swiveling spray hose. The original, non-functioning pressurized alcohol stove (with oven) has been replaced with a two drawer plywood module and a generous counter top. A single burner, counter-top propane stove/burner and a gimbaled Sea Swing burner provide adequate cooking capability even when underway.

    The ‘icebox’ is accessible from the galley counter as well as from the cockpit hatch.
    In the main cabin, there is a generous dinette to port that utilizes one of the seat-back cushions to create a large double berth. A bulkhead-mounted drop down table with an extension leaf provides for comfortable seating for five. Under the dinette is a 25 gallon fuel tank and dual, oversized batteries.

    The engine is located amidships, along the centerline – a product of smart S&S nautical engineering. Then the easily removed engine cover provides nearly 360o engine access.

    To port is an admittedly small pilot berth that has a padded bunk board that can be positioned to serve as either a back rest or lee board. Underneath is a 35 gallon water tank that has two access /inspection ports to facilitate cleaning.

    Forward of the mast, and to port is a double entry head with a standard WC and vanity sink with pressure water.
