Tartan 4300 A Classic Sailboat Design Built With Advanced Materials!

The Tartan 4300 design is marked by traditional styling coupled with a hull and rig designed to deliver optimal cruising performance, all in a very easy to sail yacht. The 4300 has all the design elements of a classic sailboat design—offering great value and high performance wrapped in a total package of understated elegance.

Designed with Tartan’s Cruise Control Rig, The key features of the CCR are a double spreader tapered carbon mast, self-tacking 100% jib, masthead 150% reacher and Tartan’s carbon composite Pocket Boom. Her carbon rig is lighter, stiffer and stronger than aluminum. The weight savings aloft provide the stability equivalent of (5) 200 lb crewmembers on the rail.

Upwind sailing is made easy by single sheet trimming for the jib and tacking is as easy as a turn of the wheel. The jib tends to itself and with the traveler mounted either on the housetop or on the hardtop, the main is free and clear from the cockpit. Off-wind, roll up the self-tacker, unfurl the lightweight masthead reacher and the 4300 is canvassed for powerful reaching and downwind sailing. When it’s time to head for the harbor, you just need to make sure the headsails are neatly rolled on the Harken furlers and the mainsail is conveniently dropped into the Pocket Boom and stowed with a zip of the sail cover. No sail ties are needed, no muss or fuss. Simply stated, the Tartan 4300 makes performance cruising easy!

Manufacturer Provided Description

On the surface, the 4300 has all the design elements of classic American yacht design. Graceful sheerline, balanced overhangs, complimentary low coach roof, sweeping cockpit coamings and thoughtful convenience details on deck all give the 4300 a very classic profile. However, built within these stylish good looks are elements that take full advantage of Tartan's advanced construction practices providing excellent performance that is realized with minimum effort. A long and lean hull is fit with a choice of low CG keels designed for great stability and sail carrying ability, and a carbon mast and "Pocket Boom" that are extremely stiff and strong. Tartan's overall commitment to advancing the art of yacht construction allows an opulent interior while still maintaining impressive performance numbers. Her weight control results in a center of gravity that is lower than most cruising boats, improving performance and handling characteristics, even when loaded for extended passages. A modern classic in the making, the Tartan 4300 promises to be a head turner in any harbor.
