Tartan 4300: optimal Cruising Performance in a Classic Style

A Classic Sailboat Design Built With Advanced Materials: 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.


Standing The Test Of Time


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 for 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.




The hull design of the 4300 continues the Tartan trend of long waterline, slippery entry forward, full and flat aft quarters and carefully sculpted and balanced volume to produce a yacht that is easily driven and powerful for maximum performance. Her long waterline length relative to overall length provides a high theoretical hull speed and the full aft sections allow the 4300 to surf and extend her sailing and motoring length to provide fast and exhilarating passage making.


By maintaining balanced volume in the hull, the 4300 heals predictably and evenly, unlike many extreme designs that develop bad manners under difficult conditions. Through optimized hull design, the 4300 will extend your daily range and expand the possibilities for weekend cruising or long daily passages offshore.


Handling That's A Breeze


The Tartan 4300 has been designed with Tartan’s Cruise Control Rig. 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.


Sailplans That Deliver


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.




A classically styled yacht built with advanced materials and methods, and a hull driven by a high performance, easy to sail rig, the Tartan 4300 is a cruising thoroughbred.


Optimal Deck Design



Wide side decks and a deep, secure cockpit are essential elements of the 4300. Her deck offers an abundance of ventilation through 14 opening portlights, 6 deck hatches and 4 dorade vents. A hardtop dodger is available with the traveler mounted clear of the cockpit and coach roof. 27” lifelines, extended bow and stern rails and handrails within easy reach offer added on-deck security and comfort. A convenient walkthrough transom with platform provides access for swimming and stern boarding from a dinghy.      


At Home On The Water


Our tradition of unmatched interior comfort is expanded in the 4300. Choose from layout plans with 2 or 3 cabins. Both feature a forward owner’s stateroom with a queen size double “island” berth for easy access, and extensive lockers and storage for extended time aboard.


There is also a large main cabin area with plush seating, an entertainment locker and plenty of storage in varnished cherry cabinetry. The galley is fully equipped, with a full nav station featuring large working desk, laptop storage and comfortable captain’s chair house a full array of navigation equipment. She can be fit with either.
