This is a Tartan Soverel 39. After the performance attention Mark Soverel received for his designs, (notably the 33 and 29) he teamed up with Tartan and produced the boat as the Tartan Soverel. The change meant that a Tartan Soverel has beefed up construction all the way around and the interior received some much needed teak highlights and creature comforts giving the boat light cruising capacity as well. The original price increase reflected the change in construction as well. 

This boat was purchased new by a family in Detroit who have maintained the boat with great care. She has never been campaigned, but club raced and lightly cruised. Over $30,000 in upgrades and improvements have been invested in the boat in the last decade and she shows beautifully. Note the custom wing keel, awl grip hull (2010) and deck, full sail inventory, B&G electronics, and stainless steel rod rigging. Having always been sailed in fresh water she will show much newer than her age. Boat is available to be shown by appointment.  Note this boat is a performance boat with adequate weekend accommodations and sleeping for 6.  She does not have cruising amenities such as refrigeration, pressure or hot water.  The emphasis is on performance and a minimal crew of 2-3 should be considered for sailing.  While she could be cruised, she is not a designed as a cruising boat.
