General Details

On the surface, the 4300 has all the design elements of classic American yacht design. Graceful sheer, balanced overhangs, complimentary low coach roof, sweeping cockpit coamings and thoughtful convenience details on deck all give the 4300 a very classic profile. A long and lean hull is fit with a low CG keel/centerboard 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 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. Czech Mate is a rare 4300 loaded with all the right cruising options to make a perfect cruiser including electronics, generator, air conditioning, custom arch, solar panels, wind generator, water maker, life raft, dinghy/OB, bow thruster, and much more. AND she draws only 4'  7" with her centerboard up. She is ready to take you anywhere.


The Tartan tradition of offering unmatched interior comfort is expanded in the Tartan 4300. She is a 2 stateroom yacht featuring a forward owners stateroom with a queen size double "island" berth for easy access and extensive lockers and storage for extended time aboard. The forward head is accessed from this stateroom. The center of the boat has a large main cabin area with plush seating of easy to care for Ultra Leather, entertainment locker and plenty of storage in varnished cherry cabinetry. The galley is fully equipped for preparing meals dockside or underway. A full forward facing nav station with Captain's chair, electrical controls and nav locker to house a full array of navigation equipment rounds out the central living areas. Aft is her second stateroom with lots of storage. LIghts in salon and both staterooms on dimmer switchs, 7 hatches equiped with Oceanair recessed screens/shades and all ports and hatches are stainless steel. Finish throughout is varnished cherry cabinetry and trim, and a varnished teak and holly sole, the 4300 surrounds her owner with opulent comfort.

Sails and Rigging
The Tartan 4300 has been designed with Tartan's "Cruise Control Rig"; key features are a double spreader tapered carbon mast, self-tacking jib, optional 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. Upwind sailing is made easy by single sheet trimming for the jib, 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. Offwind, roll up the self-tacker and unfurl the lightweight masthead reacher and the 4300 is canvassed for powerful reaching and downwind sailing. When its time to head for the harbor, 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 needed, no muss or fuss. Simply stated, the Tartan 4300 makes performance cruising easy.

Hull and Deck
The hull design of the 4300 continues the Tartan trend of long waterline, slippery entry forward, full and flat aft quarters and carefully sculpted balanced volume to produce a yacht that is easily driven and powerful for maximum performance. Her long waterline length relative to over-all 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.
