Low hour, lightly used, one owner boat,  used primarily for day sailing, well maintained. 

The Tartan 3500 delivers performance. The long waterline and strong rig offer fast passages and a competitive edge, while the contoured cockpit seats, wide coamings and pedestal steering ensure a skipper's comfort both at sea and dockside. All lines lead aft to a cockpit that is quite manageable by one.

Down below, she is fully fitted for cruising comfort with good stowage and generous accommodations.  The voluminous curves coupled with the clever use of angular bulkheads enable her nav station to be tucked aft while providing plenty of room to stand and move about.

Manufacturer Provided Description

Designed to be a well-mannered, firm and able sailing vessel, the Tartan 3500 delivers performance. Her moderate beam and powerful ends, linked with either the deep fin or the optional beavertail keel provide excellent stability and sail-carrying ability. The long waterline and strong rig offer fast passages and a competitive edge, while the contoured cockpit seats, wide coamings and pedestal steering ensure a skipper's comfort both at sea and dockside.

Her frame has been well-engineered and constructed to save weight, yet remain sound. The hull is a balsa-cored sandwich structure with a vinylester barrier coat between NPG-ISO gelcoat and the hand-laid laminate. A cored deck and a bond-in-place grid structure produce a strength-to-weight ratio that makes her a high-performance, medium-displacement cruiser-racer. The pattern non-skid of her deck maximizes safety, comfort and function. Logical in layout, she has two-foot-wide side decks and inboard shrouds that afford easy passage both fore and aft, plus allow optimum sheeting angles for efficient upwind sailing. Mounted through solid glass and aluminum backing plates, her quality equipment is strategically placed for either cruising or racing pleasure.

Leading all lines aft to a cockpit that is quite manageable by one, she features a low-stretch genoa and main halyard, Dacron genoa and main sheets, traveler tagline and reef lines.

Down below, she is fully fitted for cruising comfort with good stowage and generous accommodations.  The voluminous curves coupled with the clever use of angular bulkheads enable her nav station to be tucked aft while providing plenty of room to stand and move about.
