Tartan 4000


Tartan 4000 | Performance

Unmatched Performance In A Luxury Cruiser

As the only vessel to be awarded a double-headed win by Cruising World and Sailing World, the Tartan 4000 is the clear choice for discerning sailors. Delivering sensational sailing performance, the 4000 was noted by Cruising World Boat of The Year judges as stiff, fast, weatherly and fun. The boat’s high-tech construction is evident in the infused epoxy / composite hull and deck and in the carbon fiber mast, boom and rudder. These advanced construction techniques offer superior longevity and a more stable and safe sailing vessel. The truly versatile design will shine during coastal cruising and offshore voyaging, as well as competitive club or distance racing.


Our vacuum infused hull laminate is done in a single process with all components in place rather than bonding each layer separately like other builders. This produces a singular primary bond among the laminate components rather than the weaker multiple secondary bonds between cured laminate layers produced by traditional polyester construction. This process consolidates the laminate into a void free matrix and produces the optimum strength to weight ratio in a composite laminate. This is critical factor in determining both the speed and stability of the yacht when it leaves the dock.

Sail Away With A Better Mast & Boom

Tartan Yachts is one of the only sailboat manufacturers to offer carbon masts and carbon pocket booms standard. Carbon fiber exhibits a tensile strength greater than that of steel. As a result, our carbon masts have a substantially greater section modulus than their aluminum counterparts. This superior strength means greater safety at sea.


Optimal Deck Design

On deck the 4000 features details that deliver good looks, comfort and security. Wide side decks and molded bulwarks with a solid teak caprail provide safe and secure movement fore and aft. Ventilation on a Tartan is second to none and the 4000 continues this tradition with all opening stainless steel house side portlights, cockpit portlights, stainless steel deck hatches and 2 stainless steel dorade ventilators with stainless guards. Teak handrails running the length of the housetop within easy reach provide safe on deck maneuvering in the roughest conditions.


At home on the water

Of course, Tartan is known for the finest interior joiner-work and creative interior arrangement plans. The 4000 features handcrafted, solid stock cherry cabinetry befitting the finest sailing yachts built in America. The beauty of her varnished solid stock cabin sole is simply striking. This is not your cookie cutter production interior found in mass-produced boats. The forward cabin is dedicated as the owner’s stateroom. It is opulently appointed with tongue and groove cherry hull ceilings, extensive cabinetry, island berth and ensuite head with stall shower. Her main cabin is the social center of the interior with comfortable sofa seating, a drop leaf table and furniture grade cabinets.
