When S & S designed the Tartan Offshore Cruising Ketch, they created a unique cruiser that not only performs well but has accommodations like none other. One look at the spacious aft cabin will convince you that these boats are truly special.
Although she may not be commonly known by many as a Tartan classic, the Tartan Offshore Cruising Ketch represents an interesting chapter in the company's history. The TOCK first took shape on the drawing boards of Sparkman and Stephens in 1974 as design no. 2184 followed by a production run of 30 of these "Passagemakers" during 1976 and 1977.
Drawing inspiration from Irving Johnson's 1959 ketch "Yankee", the TOCK has several unique features which distinguish her among the Tartan line. Perhaps the most apparent among these is her midships cockpit and high bulwarks, but it is below that the designer's intent fully unfolds. Purposely designed as a liveaboard for couples, her layout includes a "great cabin" aft measuring a full 22 feet long by 13 feet wide spanning half the yacht's length, a fully outfitted galley with over 10 feet of counter space, a head with a separate walk-in shower, a pullman style stateroom forward opposite a second head and vanity, and a convertible vee-berth/utility area in the forepeak.
The ketch rig keeps the sails easily managed. This Sparkman & Stevens design has a long keel, lead ballast, and skeg-hung rudder for maximum stability, good tracking and maneuverability.
Mechanical & Engine Equipment
The engine room offers exceptional accessibility from both sides. The factory made a full-sized mock up before hull construction so there would be no unforeseen surprises which resulted in an excellent engine instalation.
Deck & Hull
Balsa cored hull and deck through-bolted to hull shelf 8" O.C. Forward deck has a 8" high bulwark at the sheer line for safety. Aft deck is flat from shear to shear. Long fin keel and skeg-mounted rudder.
The Tartan TOCK offers forward and aft companionways from the center cockpit in addition to walkthrough access to starboard below decks.
Starting forward in the forepeak there are upper and lower berths to port with Lee cloths. A sail locker is below the lower berth. To starboard is a wet locker, storage drawers and shelves. Next aft is the "Owner's Cabin" with a portside double berth that retracts to a single with leeboard. There is a single berth (fold up) above this. Opposite, to starboard is custom vanity w/ three full width drawers, 2 side drawers & lockers with sliding doors above. Just forward is a separate head with hand shower. Just aft is a hanging locker.
Step down, to a walk-through passageway with a large food storage locker to starboard and engine room access to port. Opposite to port is the aft head with stall shower and additional access to the engine room.
The aft cabin - from forward to aft 22 feet in length, combines the galley, customized nav station, and a spacious great room that is unmatched in the 40 foot range. The main salon has a large U-shaped dinette that converts to a generous queen berth. There are two berths outboard of the dinetee with lee cloths. Aft of the dinette is lazarette/berth. Going forward from this dinette area, step down and the nav station is to starboard and a long settee to port, with storage shelves above. Forward of this settee is the access to the head (with stall shower and engine access). Next to the head door is another companionway to the cockpit. Starboard of the companionway is the galley.
Galley w/ deep double S/S sink - storage underneath. Gimballed 3 burner propane stove w/ oven. Large freezer & refrigerator Ample storage for dishes, pots & pans.
