For Sale: “AGAMEMNON" T34C

Hull: #399
Posted: 24-01-2023
Guilford CT

This Tartan 34C, the AGAMEMNON, is in good condition. I bought the boat in 2011 from the original owner, who bought it new. Under my ownership, it was re-powered in 2012 with a 30hp Yanmar diesel engine. It was fitted with a new drive train and a new exhaust system to the stern. The bottom was blasted clean and repainted with an epoxy undercoat. The mast was stripped and repainted.

I have sailed this boat with my family in the coastal waters between New York City and Boston. It has a few upgrades from the original. It has a Datamarine wind and water instrumentation install that I have never used. I have made some deck replacement repairs around both chainplate areas. There is a deck repair spot to starboard of the forward cabin that needs repair. All other systems have aged appropriately under the care of attentive and safetyconscious sailors.

Posted: 13-01-2023

I bought this boat in 2022 but have since become founder and president of a new coastal resiliency non-profit and I haven't been able to set aside the time or resources needed to get this beauty back to cruising condition.

The Tartan 34C was designed by Sparkman and Stephens as a blue water racing and cruising boat. Back in the day, it won the Newport-Bermuda race along with many others. People have sailed these around the world. Not many boats of this size are more seaworthy than the 34C.

This particular vessel is one of the rare 34Cs with a wooden bow sprit. It comes with a main, jib, storm tri-sail and a genoa. All sails are in working condition. The Force 10 propane oven and stove works and is great to cook in. The boat galley has been remodeled with a deep sink and blue tile work. There is a diesel heater installed that keeps the boat warm 3 seasons and most of the winter. Matching 1960's dire dink sailing dinghy can be included as well...

This boat does need work, but it will last forever and retain its value either way. Tartan 34Cs in full working order go for upwards of $50k. Also included: - Garmin GPS, fully functional - Extra sail material - boat hook - lots of extra line - lots of spare engine parts and other parts - warranty for new bilge pump Some work needed: - Original Atomic 4 gasoline engine needs overhaul, but I have spare parts and a mechanic estimated $600 to get it working again. These engines last forever but do require some maintenance which can be done by an adequate novice mechanic. The engine worked to get me down from Stony Point, NY to Rockaway and it just needs some love. - Small hole in main cabin sole from water tank leak. I have removed the old water tank which was cracked, and i have purchased a new Plano soft tank but have not installed yet. - Head remodel in progress. I have removed the old fixtures from the head and intended to put a composting toilet in there, but so far I have just demo'd the head and I haven't installed the toilet. - Electrical work. I have begun rewiring the boat, and all essential systems are working but some of the lighting still needs to be rewired. I have already purchased new electrical panels and bus bar that have been installed.
