Manufacturer Provided Description

As with all Tartans, the 4100 has both strength and speed. Her moderate displacement hull is built with a sandwich core made from unidirectional E glass and Baltek balsa. Extensive framing, structural floor timbers and full structurally bonded bulkheads maintain the rigidity of the hull, while producing a greater load carrying ability. Her deck is constructed with the same structural integrity as the hull, yet omits balsa where hardware installation occurs. Her delicate, balanced underbody provides exhilarating performance in all wind and sea conditions. The rudder is designed to offer the ultimate in feel under sail and precise maneuverability when powering. the 4100 is a worthy addition to the Tartan fleet of performance minded cruisers. Within the cockpit, her 44 stainless steel wheel sits upon a grand pedestal console complete with teak table and assembled with space for future installations. Teak-covered storage bins provide a delicate accent to her fiberglass deck, while adding a handy compartment for small goods and genoa sheets. Extensive seating can properly fit a party of eight, while the helmsmen and few crew work the lines. Tailored to be two-handed, sail controls are led aft. Her custom fabricated masthead rig and lines provide easy handling, while her comprehensive package of Harken hardware and other brand name equipment are fitted specifically for function and manageability. Logical in layout, her deck is easily maneuverable and safety minded, with patterned, contrasting non-skid, house top hand rails, 27 tall lifelines, and teak toe-rails. Generous in all her accommodations, she gives extra attention to the cook and navigator. Bouniful in stowage amid spacious lockers and louvered doors, drove-tailed drawers and elongated lockers, she can effortlessly be provisioned for long distance cruising or live aboard.
