Tartan

Ohio builder Tartan Yachts has been producing high-quality bluewater sailboats for a half century. With naval architect Tim Jackett in the design seat, Tartan offers passagemaking cruisers from 34 to 53 feet and they also recently introduced their Fantail model for the discerning day sailor. These award-winning designs are known for resin infused hulls and decks, carbon fiber masts and booms, and the proprietary and confidence-building Cruise Control Rig (CCR). This system combines a pocket boom to hold the mainsail with a self-tacking jib and a 150% reacher on a roller furler. This versatile system helps Tartan deliver well-mannered performance in any wind conditions and is easily managed short-handed. Below, Tartan focuses on luxury accommodations with excellent joinery, ocean-going practicality and rich styling.

Boat Description

The Tartan 3400 is both a tribute to the rich history of her predecessors and the embodiment of Tartan Yachts' dedication to advanced construction and equipment technologies. Following in the wake of nearly 1,000 34-foot Tartans, spread over a production run from the late 60's (Tartan 34 Classic) through the late 80's (Tartan 34II), she shares traditional good looks with both models and embraces innovative design elements to simplify sailhandling and provide superior performance. These refinements to the performance cruiser are made possible by Tartan's dedication to advancements in materials and methods, previously available only in the custom boat market or through prohibitively expensive options.

Additional Information

High-performance, high-volume hull design

The 3400's high volume hull form provides enough space for exceptional cruising accommodations and storage and a powerful shape that is easily driven and in balance over a wide range of sailing conditions. Forward sections are slightly veed providing an easy motion in a seaway and her aft sections are full and flat offering high speed potential in heavy conditions. The hull's volume is evenly distributed through her length, which provides a symmetrical shape at all heel angles and maintains her light helm in more challenging conditions.

A deck designed for sailing

The deck is designed for maximum comfort and safety and embraces classic yacht aesthetics. Her cockpit offers high seatbacks for comfort and a deep and secure cockpit for safety. Wide sidedecks allow her crew to move fore and aft without being encumbered by the excessive house structures seen on so many current production offerings. The wrap-around coaming not only provides a striking tie to her heritage, it also serves as a splash rail and convenient location for mounting a dodger, both of which offer additional cockpit comfort and security. As with all Tartans, the 3400 features tall and distinctive teak toerails that not only enhance her yacht status but also provide an important toe hold in rough weather sailing. Ventilation, always a Tartan priority, is provided by an abundance of stainless steel opening portlights, deck hatches, and dorades.

A Tartan's good looks have always provided her owners with head-turning prideful entrances into harbors as well as helping maintain their value by not chasing the fad of the moment. The 3400 continues this tradition with a sophisticated hull and deck design.

Built for strength, safety, and excellent speed

The 3400 takes full advantage of Tartan's advanced sailboat manufacturing techniques. Her hull laminate is an infused composite of uni-directional e-glass, BPA epoxy resin, and synthetic coring. The exceptional adhesive properties of BPA epoxy allow Tartan to eliminate the "fat" found in normal production boat hulls. Her structure is comprised of all high-tensile strength uni-directional fibers rather than the weak and heavy chopped-strand fiber that dominates the laminate of other builders. Through strict resin control, utilizing resin infusion, Tartan delivers a 65% structural glass reinforcement-to-resin ration while the vacuum-bagged "one shot" process provides a void-free laminate with pound-for-pound strength characteristics far greater than polyester laminates. The weight saved in the laminate can then be used for ballast and accommodations, improving both performance and comfort.

The 3400's deck also utilizes Tartan's custom resin infusion process, which employs high-strength BPA epoxy resin, uni-directional e-glass reinforcements and select grade, sealed, end grain balsa coring. Highly loaded hardware is fastened to the deck with stainless steel machine screws that pass through reinforced, solid glass core windows and are tapped into 6061 T6 aluminum backing plates. Beyond incredible strength and longevity, this installation allows "on-deck" servicing for deck hardware. Tartan's deck construction produces a lightweight, yet stiff and strong deck structure, further complimenting the 3400's excellent overall sailing characteristics.

The 3400's double-spreader, tapered, carbon-fiber mast is stiffer, stronger, and lighter than the aluminum masts found on virtually all production sailboats in her size range. These characteristics produce a rig that is easier to tune, remains stable in heavy air conditions, increases stability by decreasing weight aloft, and provides an easier motion in a seaway due to less pitching moment. While carbon masts remain an expensive option list item for other builders, Tartan delivers each boat with a carbon mast as standard equipment.
