We have owned this Tanzer since 2006. It has sailed in a lake and in the ocean, from Florida to Grenada and back to Puerto Rico. Great all around boat. The Tanzer was built in Dorion, Quebec. The boat is built of fiberglass with some wood inside. It has a masthead sloop rig, a transom and skeg-hung rudder, wheel steering, and a retractable lead keel. The boat displacement is 13,000 lbs, with the keel being 5,700 lbs.
The Tanzer 10.5 was designed with a number of very interesting and innovative features. It has a retractable ballasted lead keel. Unlike many boats with a swing keel arrangement, the Tanzer 10.5s keel fills-in the entire keel house opening when it is in its lowered position. The keel is raised hydraulically, with a push of a button, and the housing is located in the pilot house. This means its performance should come very close to that of a fixed keel. Although the Tanzer 10.5 looks very much like a sleek sailboat, it actually has a pilot house with an interior steering station.
