1982 Tartan 3000 located in Outside United States for sale

30' Tartan 3000

Outside United States

Description: Well maintained and extensively upgraded coastal cruiser ready to comfortably cruise the Caribbean. Wild Goose is a fast and sturdy Sparkman and Stevens design, with a beautiful classic teak interior. Fully outfit and custom improved for live aboard cruising and open ocean passages.

Wild Goose is a perfect pocket live aboard for an individual or duo looking to cruise the Caribbean without the difficult passage from the US or the expense of a larger sailboat. No boat is project free and she is not in show boat condition, but she is ready to move aboard or sail hard with minimal input of time and money. She is a solid build that spent the majority of her life in fresh water with limited use, but has recently undergone major refitting and shakedown.

A recently installed oversized battery bank and solar array, ultra efficient refrigeration, and warm LED lighting make power an afterthought, even without the 55 amp alternator. Comforts like climate control, new upholstery, fans throughout, bimini and dodger, a custom teak cockpit table, 1500 watt inverter, expanded water tankage, and wireless internet make for a comfortable live aboard. The Monitor Windvane, new standing rigging, and new oversized ground tackle paired with a sturdy build make her ready for serious cruising.

I am happy to include all the gear, tools, planning materials, interior furnishings, and creature comforts needed for cruising and living aboard which we accrued over our three plus years. Also included is a 8 hypalon dinghy and 5HP 2-Stroke Yamaha, both in great condition. Potential for delivery option in the Caribbean. Registered in Virginia, all documentation and taxes are current. Open to reasonable offers, but I am not in dire need to sell.
