Tartan 34 and Morgan 32

Looking for comments about either of these, or just some of your own favorites.

Thumbs up Re: Tartan 34 and Morgan 32

Not familiar with the T34 nor the M32. I am renovating a T27 and will possibly cannibalize my M25 in the process, if that helps.

If you just so happen to be dreaming about sailing but have as yet to set out, scour Craigslist and find something cheap and ready to go. GO SAILING, NOW! Great deals are out there.

If you are interested in my Morgan 25 in rough shape; it's available, with a working dual axle trailer. I assure you there is an as good or better deal elsewhere.

I saw a sweet, clean O'day 25 for $1500 in Nashville last time I checked.


Good luck (if you are still watching).

edit: I got caught again responding to a very OLD post! I hate it when that happens.

As a fan of Tartan and Sparkman and Stephens I have always liked the Tartan 34C (is that the one you mean?) It has a great rep especially among those in the Caribbean for its shallow draft. I don't know the Morgan though I can see it is a very beamy little thing. I am sure it will feel roomy for a 32! As far as my own favorites I'd have to say, for what purpose? I have a lot! My own boat is THE favorite of mine in the 29 foot length! But me, I'm doing coastal island cruising here in Cal. on a tight budget. Personally I am more interested in the old school "CCA" designs from the 60s because they are tough, sail well and can handle a variety of sea conditions well. The Pearson Rhodes 41 will always catch my eye. But I'd sure love to sail a Contessa 32 one day too, I really like that design and it has a good rep. For cruising I think the wisest design is either a long keel or a molded in fin keel with a skeg-hung rudder. If I had more money I'd probably look for a Hughes 48.
