The Tartan 3500 continues to be a top choice for sailors looking for a performance oriented family cruiser. I have been a long time fan of Tartan boats and must admit I find the Tartan 3500 one of the more handsome of triditional-styled designs. Designing a boat that maximizes interior volume and waterline length without it looking like the box it came in, is not an easy task but, in this case, has been accomplished by Tartans in-house design team led by Tim Jackett. The 3500s overall length is 35 2, beam is 11 9 and displacement is 11,400 lbs. She is a deep draft drawing 6 6.

The construction quality of the Tartan 3500 is as good as, or in some cases better than, other production boat manufacturers, but Tartans attention to detail is amazing.

Bottom line, the Tartan 3500 is a well built boat with a hull constructed of chop strand mat, unidirectional fiberglass cloth and balsa wood core for stiffness. There is no core used in areas of through-hull fittings, chain plate or keel attachments in order to mitigate the possibility of water intrusion. A layer of vinylester resin is used to improve blister resistance and Tartan backs up their hulls with a five-year warranty against osmotic blisters.

The decks and cabin are likewise constructed of fiberglass composites with balsa wood core. Deck hardware is soundly attached with stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers and either aluminum or fiberglass backing plates for distributing loads.The deck and hull are joined in Tartans typical fashion of using stainless steel fasteners drilled and tapped into aluminum plates molded into the hull flange and bedded with 3Ms 5200 sealant.
