S&S (#2016)
One of Tartans most successful models. Two hull and two interior configurations were available. The standard rig includes a fin keel with skeg hung rudder with draft as shown here.
The tall rig has an extra 3 feet of mast, 5.5' of draft and an extra 500 pounds of lead.(Sometimes referred to as TARTAN 30C.)
The interiors came in a center galley and aft galley version. Standard power was the Atomic 4 while some came with a Faryman Diesel.
Thanks to 'callmecrazy' for supplying additional layout details.
