About this Sailboat:
The Tartan 27 is legendary. This centerboarder came out of the Sparkman & Stephens design house and if you Google her you’ll find more than you want on the reputation of these boats. If you ‘re looking for a “big” small boat, this is the one. She’s bullet-proof and fantastic to sail. She draws a mere 3′-6″ with the board up, perfect for the Chesapeake and goes to over 6’ with the board down. She steers herself when trimmed properly. This particular boat has been COMPLETELY RE-DONE from stem to stern. The list is endless and I have photos of all the work. You’re getting a brand new 40 year old boat.
Equipment on Board:
New head sails on roller furler
New Bronze thru hulls and sea cocks throughout the boat
Deck re-cored Fared and painted
Chain plate knees rebuilt with stainless chain plates bolted to the outside of the knee… one of few weaknesses of this boat.

I could go on and on about this boat. I planned on keeping her for at least the next 10 years. But, I lost my job and we’re selling the house so our plan has been accelerated to move aboard and she’s just too small us. Whether your moving down or moving up… you simply can’t go wrong with a Tartan 27~ and this one has had every single “weak” point addressed.
