31' Tartan  “Fire of Spring”

A fantastic family cruiser/club racer and an easy boat to single-hand. A good example of this durable boat. "Practical Sailor" says of the 31, "Tartan has a reputation for solid construction and good workmanship and that's what the 31 is: solid and well put together." 

The Tartan 31 was the 1990 “Boat-of-the-Year!” Fire of Spring is a one owner, fresh water boat.

The interior was designed with offshore sailing in mind yet appears very contemporary in style. Angled bulkheads and cabin furniture in hand-rubbed teak provide an openness and a luxurious look without omitting any necessary features. 

The forward stateroom provides a double berth to port and a seat, bureau and full hanging locker to starboard. The enclosed head includes marine toilet, sink, and shower. 

In the main cabin, a varnished bulkhead-mounted table hinges down between facing settees. To port, a fold-down wing provides full width to the pilot berth; a locker and book shelves back the starboard settee. 

The galley, shaped in a shallow-U for security in a seaway, wraps an area to starboard at the foot of the companionway with a large, easily accessible and well-insulated icebox, standard 2-burner gimbaled CNG stove (with oven), storage trap and deep stainless sink. Outboard an aft is teak-louvered cabinets and storage drawers. 

To port is a large navigation station with drawers, lockers and other cabinetry for instrumentation, equipment and charts. The hart table hinges up to provide access aft to a 5-foot wide double quarter berth, 6'4" in length. 

Interior cabinetry and trim is hand-oiled teak. Ventilation, always an important Tartan consideration, is provided in the T-31 through 8 aluminum-framed opening port lights, 2 over head hatches and 2 SS Dorades.




2-burner gimballed CNG stove, newer Dometic refrigeration/freezer, hot/cold pressurized water system, deep SS Sink.
