2001 Tartan 3500

Amityville, New York


Here is what Tartan Yachts says about the 3500.....

"Thirty-five feet is an ideal size for a family cruising boat. What sets the Tartan 3500 apart from other mid-size cruising boats is her unique combination of racing performance, pleasing looks, and a host of features that make cruising life more comfortable.

An manually operated swim platform with ladder eliminates any hassles for the entire crew when boarding from the water, dinghy, or dock. The big-boat size Nav Station faces aft, for easy communication with the person on the helm. And wide, flat side decks (instead of dangerous narrow, sloping, or highly-cambered decks) ensure safety when going forward.    

Unlike other mid-size cruising boats with high freeboard, top-heavy cabin houses, and a distinct lack of sail-carrying ability, the Tartan 3500's time-tested design parameters give her a welcome combination of big-boat performance and mid-size handling ease."

FULL CIRCLE has been maintained to a very high standard and shows beautifully. She has been raced successfully and carries an excellent sail inventory including spinnakers with carbon fiber pole. Her owner has spared no expense in her upkeep and she has plenty of cruising amenities as well including air conditioning and heat.

The Tartan 3500 offers a very roomy and well appointed interior. She is finished with American Cherry wood and her joiner work is among the best in the industry. FULL CIRCLE has a brand new teak and holly sole that makes her look much newer than she is. 

The layout offers a very large aft cabin to port that easily accommodates two adults in comfort. Forward of the aft cabin and to port is the large head with separate shower. 

To starboard and aft is the dedicated nav station - much larger and better laid out than any 35 footer on the market today. Forward of the nav station is the galley that is perfect for cooking at anchor or under way. 

Moving forward is the main salon with a straight settee to port that can double as a berth and an L shaped settee to starboard than can be a berth as well. Excellent stowage outboard of both settees in lockers and a flat screen TV with DVD player flush mounted on the port side. Centerline is a beautiful drop leaf dining table. 

Forward is the large v-berth in the enclosed forward cabin with hanging lockers and plenty of storage.
