-Perusing through the site, there are a few Tanton's boats for sale or with pending sales.
I thought that I would show them to you. With the exception of a T45 and the Pen-Gwyn below, the mentioned used boats shown on under the Search keyword name : Tanton, are not in my Central Listing, therefore if interested you ought to contact the Listing Broker for the individual boat. If the boats are not my Central, I charge a fee of $500.00 to assist Brokers, Buyers to have information related to the boat or any other boats in the World, if you wish. Including available original drawings if available.

                                                                 Tanton 45 Ft Lauderdale FL.

-She does not look it, but she is a project boat. With the main issue of a very wet deck. Now, others more minor problems are also apparent. So, she is available for a hard working and knowledgeable worker with time and money to buy her "as is, where is". The boat is docked at the owner's house and can remain there for a while and for free. Sounds good? Drop me a note, and I can send you the whole pictures and specification.  I have to emphasize; the vessel needs work.

Here is the P-G 38' Ketch.
Steel construction with twin keels.
     Located in Charleston, SC.                

A little side story: The Brokerage was established in 1975, one year after the Yacht Design Business.
It started strong with my two favorite Brokers. Over a short period they sold many boats.
Unfortunately the "cheptel" of boats to sell where slim at the time. Remember, it was long ago, and I encouraged them to look to stronger, busier Yacht Brokerage Businesses. One went to Sparkman and Stephens, the other to Bartram and Brakenhoff. To let them go for what I thought was the best for them and is one of the worth business decision I made in my life. Oh well!
So, on my own I have been operating this side line ever since. Mostly about my own designed boats, and occasionally other types.

St. Barth. Bucket 2017.

Photos by Dominique Tanton.
Logistic and Onshore Chef for the J Class boat Topaz. To feed and lodge 32-36 people.

It is hard to associate empty shelves at Gustavia, Saint Barthelemy with the Bucket series of races for some of the largest, most expensive sailing yachts in the world. But no worries, the above caption was due to bad weather preventing the dairy boat to come in with supplies; the rest is all caviar and Burger in Paradise.
