Many think that the Tartan 34 is Tartan's most beautiful model. The Skybird has a graceful sheer and balanced ends, which prove that fast, modern yachts need not be bulky. This Tartan design began first with sailing excellence and the highest level of structural integrity.
The Tartan 34 is a coherent blend of past experience and innovation. Her accommodations have been richly finished and laid out for both spaciousness and privacy in a bright, well-ventilated and comprehensively appointed cabin.
The Skybird is a classic Sparkman & Stephens design with the keel/centerboard configuration - draws 3'11" with the board up, and 8'4" with it down. A Bahamas veteran that's ready to go again!
