The Tartan 34-2 is a development of the 1979 Sparkman & Stephens-designed Tartan 33 R, with the stern extended and a different interior layout. It is unrelated to the 1968 Sparkman & Stephens-designed Tartan 34 C. Both the 34-2 and the earlier 34 C were marketed simply as the "Tartan 34", but to avoid confusion they are commonly referred to as the 34 C ("Classic") and the 34-2 to differentiate the designs.[1][3]

ProductionEdit

The Tartan 34-2 was built by Tartan Marine in the United States between 1984 and 1989, with 110 examples completed.[1][4]

DesignEdit

 
Tartan 34-2

The Tartan 34-2 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, an internally-mounted spade-type rudder, a reverse transom and a fixed fin keel. It displaces 11,000 lb (4,990 kg) and carries 4,400 lb (1,996 kg) of ballast.[1]

The boat has a draft of 6.25 ft (1.91 m) with the standard keel and 4.46 ft (1.36 m) with the optional shoal draft keel.[1]

The design was factory-fitted with a Japanese Yanmar diesel engine of 27 hp (20 kW). The fuel tank holds 23 U.S. gallons (87 L; 19 imp gal) and the fresh water tank has a capacity of 57 U.S. gallons (220 L; 47 imp gal).[1]

The boat has a PHRF racing average handicap of 177 with a high of 186 and low of 174. The shoal draft version has an average PHRF handicap of 141 with a high of 147 and low of 135. Both versions have a hull speed of 7.19 kn (13.32 km/h).[5][6]
