St. Augustine

Unfortunately, we have to sell our 1975 Tartan 30 because we are moving out of the country soon. We have had this boat for 2 years and spent the summer on it sailing the southeast coast. The boat is currently docked in St.Augustine.
Atomic 4 Engine
We have redone a lot on the engine. Prior to leaving on our trip down the ICW, we had a mechanic look over everything and he said that it was in better shape than many new engines he works on. There are plenty of hours left on this it.
