1989 Tartan 40

Mystic, Connecticut



Tartan 40  -  #61  - 1989  -  Flag Blue Awlgrip

Classic Racer/Cruiser Designed by Sparkman & Stephens with Tim Jacket

The easiest way to describe this boat is as a cruiser/racer that leans more to the racer side. There is nothing radical about her, but she is fairly powered up. It's a nice boat and well loved by many owners. - Sparkman & Stevens

Well-Equipped and Well-Maintained
