Overall, the Tartan 33 is a well-built straightforward cruiser/racer, with good storage and simple, accessible systems, which will hit hull speed given the right conditions and an able crew. Comfortable enough for four on weekends, the boat will also deliver safe and secure long-distance capability for coastal cruising couples. She wins her share on the racecourse against some of the best in class and can be singled-handed with comparative ease. She has a new (290 hours) 29 hp Yanmar diesel that pushes her nicely through the water at 5.5-6.5 kts, cruise-loaded, usually burning half-a-gallon per hour.
Blue-water capability is generally on the mind of a cruising sailor. Is the Tartan 33 designed to be blue-water capable? Yes, given the proper gear, boat condition, and an experienced crew. She has a 4.5 ft draft with a scheel keel suitable for the Bahamas and the Keys. She has just recently had a bottom paint and inspection.
She has a typical IMS club-certificate rating for the limit of positive stability of 119º - adequate for offshore work." In addition, She also has a deep, safe cockpit with drains, more than adequate handholds, and sea berths.
There's not enough room for a 42" plasma TV but her interior has all the basics. Most find it more than adequate for a cruising couples. In reality, if a modicum of comfort is required, it's three-to-four adults and maybe two children. Headroom is adequate for a six-footer and the pull-down salon table will seat four and in a pinch five for dinner. She just had a bottom paint job and inspection. (May 1st. 2016)
