The Tartan 34 is a classic Olin Stephens designed racer/cruiser from the era when everyday sailors regularly benefited from the latest advances in sailing design and equipment while still providing a comfortable sail for the family.
Versatile boats Tartan 34s continue to be competitive in local and distance races and provide endless hours of cruising pleasure for many. With over 525 built there is a strong and supportive class association of terrific sailors who are quick to embrace new members and help them with their boats.
Previously based on Lake Erie this fresh water boat has cruised extensively in the great lakes and most recently daysailed and occasionally raced on Lake St. Clair. A prior owner refitted the interior with handsome teak and birch finishes, installed four bronze opening ports and very comfortable 8” cushions. The cabin sleeps 6 easily and has 6’2” of standing headroom.
This boat is a comfortable sailor with a generous 9’ cockpit, tiller steering, self tailing winches and a shallow keel ideal for tight anchorages while also having the ability to trim the centerboard to balance the helm as conditions change.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
