  • Currently registered as an Antique Boat with State of Texas

    General Description:

  • Classic Tartan 27 Sailboat with many desirable upgrades and features.
  • Kubota 14.5 hp Diesel Engine (similar to Westerbeke or Universal) but easier to get parts at the tractor store. Engine was replaced in 2009, but is a 2002 engine.
  • Major overhaul in 2009 included new propeller, engine, freshwater cooling for engine, epoxy coated steel centerboard, professional bottom job, boot stripe is light grey, hull is dark blue and was painted in 2009.
  • Deck was painted in 2008 and features Kiwi Grip for non-skid.
  • Photo of boat and deck was featured in Practical Sailor.
  • Has 5K btu marine air conditioning, enclosed head with electrosan.
  • New marine grade wiring for 12v and 110v systems.
  • Features built in dual battery charger.
  • Converted to wheel steering in 2009 and has pedestal mounted GPS for navigation.
  • Original tiller was saved as the emergency tiller.
  • Custom strap-less bimini with adequate head clearance for comfortable sailing.
  • Has original 18 gallon monel fuel tank which is in great condition.
  • Roller furling installed in 2004, new sail in 2004, recovered in 2008 when the color scheme was changed.
  • Boat is in premium slip in marina and it should be possible to transfer the slip to the new owner if the new owner wants it.
  • Boat had no damage in Hurricane Ike.
  • Main sail is a performance loose foot sail.
  • Boat sails great in most weather and is heavy enough to handle anything you encounter.

    Current Project List:

  • Like all old boats, something always needs doing.
  • Deck has a couple of minor spots that need the paint touched up.
  • Teak needs to be scuffed and coated.
  • Currently has base coat of Cetol Natural with Cetol Clear Gloss.
  • Has been allowed to go a while, so it needs a good scuffing.
  • Previous owner painted the teak white, and I have been stripping it bit by bit for the entire time I have owned the boat.
  • Cockpit Coamings have been allowed to weather to get the paint off to avoid damaging the wood or having to spend hours scraping it.
  • Toerail and other wood has already been done and 80% of the teak has been restored including the dorade boxes.
  • Dorade vents need to be removed and cleaned/painted, again minor.
  • Boat currently has no major issues to the best of my knowledge.
  • I should add that teak maintenance is an ongoing project on any boat with Teak.

    Boat does not include a trailer. Delivery in the Houston Galveston region may be available. I can also assist with delivering the boat to a shipper if someone wants it shipped.
