34' Tartan 34C


Description: The Sparkman and Stephens designed Tartan 34C is a fantastic and capable vessel and is the most popular design of world-renowned Olin Stephens. Whispa was purchased by its current owners in 1995 and has remained a part of the family and lovingly cared for as such. She has ventured from Norfolk, Virginia to Casco Bay, Maine. The Tartan 34 is known to sail well on all points of sail and especially in heavy weather. This Classic model is known to have done several circumnavigations proving this design exceptionally seaworthy. She is a centerboard rig allowing the versatility of gunk-holing with 3'11" of draft and the upwind performance of an 8'3 board-down draft.

Whispa has been maintained well for safety and pleasure. The many upgrades include radar in 2001, a new Yanmar 30 hp. diesel engine in 2002, and a new North mainsail in 2003. Whispa has two non-essential upgrade recommendations (see below), and is otherwise in great shape and ready for you to sail.
