Legacy 36


Legacy 36 | Performance

High Performance with Shocking Fuel Savings

The hull design uses a modified deep V hull with wide chine flats and centerline flats extending aft to produce a sea kindly hull that gets up on plane at low speeds. This combination has proven its ability to deliver a yacht with great performance and handling characteristics along with excellent fuel efficiency.

Performance Highlights

The underwater configuration includes a running keel/skeg combination that offers superior tracking and great protection for the prop and the skeg hung rudder.

Forward, the V’d entry allows the 36 to handle the toughest conditions, while keeping the ride dry and stable.
An inspection of the Legacy 36 engine layout, drive line and shipboard systems reveals a well thought out plan with particular attention given to ease of access, functionality and serviceability.
The standard Cummins QSB 6.7 480 HP electronically controlled engine is a marvel of modern diesel technology. Clean running and efficient the installation in the Legacy 36 features an oversized prop shaft coupled to a precise 5-axis machined, 4 blade propeller for maximum performance.
The engine room is also the hub for all electrical and plumbing system installations. Top of the line components, all tinned copper wiring with heat shrink terminal connections, and details like low maintenance semi rigid plumbing highlight the attention given to provide convenience and trouble free on board systems.


Details that Lure You In

Under way or at the dock, the experienced yachtsman will appreciate the attention given to deck details that enhance safety and comfort. The aft self bailing cockpit is a large oasis of relaxation, providing an aft settee for sun worship, as well as two additional seats adjacent to the entrance to the helmdeck salon. Tall bulwarks, a hefty 1 ¼” bow rail, plenty of handholds and molded non-skid all offer security when heading to the foredeck. Her sidedecks are wide for easy and safe passage. Also note the large array of ventilation, two stainless steel opening hatches on the helm deck, three additional stainless steel deck hatches to the cabin as well as six stainless steel opening portlights. The deck hardware is all of the highest quality with particular attention given to the custom 316 stainless steel fabrications and appointments.

The deck is thoughtfully trimmed with epoxy coated Sapelle, a beautiful African hardwood, all expertly finished with high gloss two part urethane for an easy to maintain yacht finish. The deck shares the same high tech, vacuum infused lamination as the hull, and includes windows in the coring layout with aluminum backing plates at all high load hardware installations. The result is a strong and light weight deck structure with easily serviceable hardware installations.


Craftsmanship that Makes You Stay

The helmdeck salon and interior showcase Tartan’s renowned craftsmanship. Available in several configurations; galley down with two large helmdeck salon settees or galley up with a choice of a below deck “L” shaped settee or a second private sleeping cabin, all are executed to perfection in varnished cherry and Sapelle. The aft end of the helm deck is enclosed with dramatically curved plexi glass panels, and Sapelle framed sliding door. The helmsman and navigator are pampered with secure and comfortable, Ultraleather adjustable captain’s pedestal chairs. The helm console is a beautifully crafted unit with ample space for all of the essentials; radar/chartplotter, engine instrumentation, trim tab, wiper and bow thruster controls all surrounding a tilting, wood rimmed stainless steel wheel. The mate gets equal attention with a very functional nav table with a pull out laptop or tablet drawer.

Whether it’s the galley up or down with expanded lounging space, the helmdeck salon offers an expanse of openness, superb visibility and great ventilation through the large opening side windows and windshield with center opening hatch. The below deck accommodations offer a private cabin forward with a large, queen size island berth with ample storage in drawers, hanging lockers and shelved lockers. The head to starboard with a full stall shower is finished in easy to maintain laminates, solid surface counters and gel coat surfaces.

To port, it’s your choice; galley down with full cooking facilities, freezer and refrigeration and beautifully finished solid surface counters or galley up with the choice of a below deck settee that converts to a berth complete with drop down table or a second private sleeping cabin for guests. The solid stock varnished Sapelle sole and handcrafted cherry trim all provide a level of warmth, comfort and opulence not found in typical production yachts. The 36 allows you to pick the layout that best suits your boating style.
