Design 1904 - Tartan 34

Of all of the Tartan designs, and many are posted on this blog, the Tartan 34 is one of the all time favorites. Built by the Douglass & McLeod Plastics Corporation, 525 boats were built between 1967 and 1978. She is a typical cruiser/racer from the period, with emphasis on family sailing.

Here are the plans.

And a couple of interior images.

    Drawn by G.F. Jr. That would be a certain Argentinian yacht designer, wouldn't it, during his brief tenure at S&S? No wonder the Tartan 34 is such a good looking boat.
