Finch is a Tartan 34C which has been lovingly owned and professionally maintained by a leading boatyard in Maine.  The Tartan 34 is an ideal boat for the coast of Maine.  Her shallow draft and ability to move in light air renders her quite versatile...a gunkholer's dream, and yet with a few turns of the centerboard winch she is ready to handle big water.  She can be singlehanded more easily than most boats, but is roomy enough for a crowd. Ma 34C’s have done circumnavigations, and they are designed for both comfort and performance.  Moored in beautiful Sorrento Maine, Finch can also be picked up at several locations on Mount Desert Island if you so prefer.

With a spacious V-berth forward, one double and one single berth in the main cabin, and a quarter berth port aft, Finch offers a lot of space and privacy in a boat that is easily managed by 1 or 2 people.  The off-center placement of the engine, and fold-up dining table, makes for a main cabin that easily seats 6 for dinner and is comfortable space for lounging around on a rainy day at anchor.

The V Berth has plenty of space to sleep 2 in comfort, and includes an inset to make it a full double berth. There is an opening hatch with screen and windscoop, and excellent ventilation. Large drawers provide plenty of storage.

The galley includes a 2 burner alcohol stove (new in 2015) that works great and is very economical to run. There is also a very ingenious stovetop oven, that can be used to make anything from fresh baked bread to lasagna or brownies.  Hot and cold pressurized water in galley and head.

One of the most unique features of the T34C is the large double ice-box that is accessible from both the galley and the cockpit! No need to come below to grab a fresh beverage. The ice-box is well insulated and drains to exterior, so has a dry cold storage section that nicely separates your perishables from your ice, cans and bottles.

There is abundant storage throughout the cabins and galley, including many drawers, lockers, full hanging locker, and cubbies. The boat can easily store enough gear to take off for weeks at a time or longer.
