27' Boat

Tartar, designed by Philip C. Bolger and launched in 1983, was the first boat built by ZMI. Built of cold-molded wood construction, this sleek and lightweight 27’ boat ran at 25 knots with a 90 HP outboard.

Although we built TarTar for use on the Chesapeake, she later became the tender to a larger yacht which towed her from New England to Florida each season. The owner also took TarTar cross country on a trailer, using her in beautiful and varied places, including Lake Tahoe.

After twenty years of constant use, TarTar parted her towing line during a blow offshore and was lost at sea.
