Tartan 4700


Tartan 4700 | Performance

Handling That’s A Breeze

Great performance, with easy handling begins with the correct rig choice. In addition to the CCR Rig, an optional Leisure Furl™ Boom is also available. With over 15 years of development, the Leisure Furl™ in-boom furling system is a highly efficient, safe and simple method of reefing and controlling the mainsail. Each Leisure Furl boom is custom engineered and fabricated specific for your Tartan 4700 and is elegantly designed for attractiveness and weight savings. The in-boom furling system is custom fitted to our Tartan carbon fiber mast, which eliminates the need to un-step your mast during installation. Both the CCR and the Leisure Furl™ offer ease of sailing tailored to the owners specific needs.

Standing The Test Of Time

Tartan owners put sailing performance first, and the 4700 deck plan is optimized to allow her crew to efficiently tweak sail shape and trim from the security of the cockpit and helm areas. Her all chrome winches and polished stainless hardware are from the best suppliers in the industry. Few yachts can match the ventilation of a Tartan and the 4700 continues the theme with 12 opening port lights and 9 deck hatches. Dockside or sailing, the cockpit is the center of on board activities, rack and pinion steering, long contoured seating and a walkthrough transom platform provide comfort and convenience.

Sailplans That Deliver

Efficient sailing performance is at the core of every Tartan. The 4700 has been fit with the CCR sailplan, which was originally introduced on the Boat of the Year award winning Tartan 3400. The rig features a tall fractional working sailplan with a self-tacking jib for upwind work and a masthead 155% reacher for great off-wind performance. A carbon fiber pocket boom with integral lazy jacks and sail cover help tame the main, while still allowing the sail maker the latitude to build a fully battened, high performance mainsail.


Of course, a large sailplan requires great stability, and the all-lead bulb keel and light and strong carbon fiber mast combine to provide excellent sail carrying ability, a high range of positive stability and a sea kindly motion offshore.


Optimal Deck Design

The 4700’s deck features wide side decks, extensive ventilation in a wide array of stainless steel port lights and hatches, and a large and comfortable cockpit with all sail controls led aft for sailing.


At home on the water

The arrangement plan for the 4700 features a 3 cabin, 2 head layout. Both the forward and aft stateroom berths are queen-sized and feature a head accessible from the cabin. The starboard crew cabin is fit with upper and lower berths that kids will love. The onboard chef will appreciate the galley’s double sink, large front and top load icebox, 4-burner LPG stove and large storage areas. Taking full advantage of the raised coach roof and extensive ventilation, the main salon and navigation station area of the boat can simply be described as light and airy. No matter the need, the 4700 can be tailored to satisfy.
