Excellent condition with lots of extras...Motivated Seller!

The Tartan 28 is a classic sloop, fast and comfortable with keel stepped mast, fin keel, and spade rudder.

Designed as a racer/cruiser, it was in production for 6 years. The majority of the hull is solid fiberglass, hand laid-up with mat and unidirectional roving.

Areas above the waterline from the forward bulkhead to the stem are cored with a combination of end-grain balsa and Coremat, a microsphere-filled, random-laid, chopped-fiber polyester fabric used for added stiffness. A molded liner forms an integrated floor structure that provides strength and rigidity.

There is also an overhead liner in the salon, composed of removable panels with teak battens covering the seams. The gelcoat is NPG/ISO polyester resin, backed by vinyl ester resin for blister and chemical resistance.

Bottom last painted five years ago and routinely maintained by professional diver - no blisters.

The deck is a hand-laid, balsa-cored laminate with a non-skid pattern molded into all horizontal surfaces.

In high-stress areas, such as beneath mooring cleats and winches, the balsa core is replaced with solid fiberglass reinforcement. The deck is joined to an inward flange on the hull, and the joint bedded with butyl rubber.

A slotted aluminum toe-rail runs the full length of the boat on either side, terminating at hefty mooring cleats forward and aft. Beneath the toe rail is a 1⁄4-inch aluminum backing plate through which the joint and toe rail are bolted every 4" with 1/4 inch stainless steel bolts. Wide side decks and shrouds
attached to inboard chain-plates allow reasonably unobstructed movement on deck.

The boats perimeter is secured by double-rail stainless steel bow and stern pulpits and thru-bolted stanchions supporting 3/8" vinyl-coated lifelines. The coach-roof features eight 5 x 15 opening ports and 2 pairs of teak grab-rails.

On the foredeck is a 19" square opening hatch with aluminum frame.

The Tartan's modified T-shaped cockpit is 7 feet long and features an Edson pedestal with a 27" wheel, a

fold-down teak cockpit table and teak drink holders (x4). Cockpit coamings are reasonably high and cockpit seating is comfortable. Beneath the port seat is a large sail locker and further aft is the panel and controls for the engine.

Self-tailing primary winches are within easy reach of the helm for short-handed sailing.

Below decks, the fore cabin V-Berth is 6'3" long and has an insert to form a double berth. Aft of the forecabin to starboard is the head compartment with hanging locker opposite. The salon has a port settee that is 4'4" long with an enclosed locker above that houses the VHF and Loran above a fold-down navigator table.

The starboard settee slides out to form a double berth 6'3" long by 3'5" wide. On the bulkhead in front of the starboard settee is a fold-down 34" x 37" dinette table. Aft on the starboard side is a 6'5" long quarter berth.

Aft of the port settee is a "U" shaped galley with louvered door lockers outboard, a Origo two-burner gimbaled alcohol stove, a single 14" x 10" stainless steel sink w/foot pump for freshwater, pressure hot and cold water system, a four cubic foot icebox and a thru-the-bulkhead access to the port lazarette.

All but the fore cabin has a teak and holly cabin sole, teak battened overhead, teak veneer bulkheads and teak moldings.
