The Tartan 3100 is designed to carry on the Tartan tradition of excellence in sailing performance, whether racing or cruising and to withstand off-shore conditions. We then looked for proven and innovative ways to maximize comfort and luxury within her 31-foot hull. The hull form carries fullness to the ends; her sections are U-shaped with a firm turn at the bilge. The result is excellent stability, low wetted surface and powerful sailing lines. Her design points to a hull with good behavior and performance throughout a wide range of wind and wave conditions. Two keel plans are offered: a deep elliptical fin and a shoal-draft beaver tail bulb which has proven successful and popular among cruising owners of other Tartan models. The proper size of the subtly elliptical rudder underscores Tartan's commitment to control. Ballast is carried low; this, together with a high ballast-displacement ratio, allows Tartan 3100 to comfortably carry a powerful sail plan. Tartan 3100 has a tall double-spreader masthead rig. The large mainsail ensures good reaching and off-wind performance; the high-aspect foretriangle and close sheeting-angles ensure efficient headsails and strong windward performance. While the deck styling is sleek and modern, the emphasis has been placed on function and safety. All sail controls are led aft to housetop-mounted winches. So, too, are the 4-part cabin-top mainsheet traveler controls. The cockpit is T-shaped; seats are contoured for comfort under sail and at anchor. Tartan 3100's large foredeck, wide sidedecks, comfortable cockpit and well-planned layout provide safety and pleasure to the sailing experience. The interior was designed with offshore sailing in mind, yet is contemporary in style. Angled bulkheads and cabin furniture in hand-rubbed teak provide an openness and a luxurious look without omitting necessary features. The U-shaped galley, for security in a seaway, wraps an area to starboard at the foot of the companionway with a large and well-insulated ice box, two-burner gimballed propane stove with oven, storage trap and deep stainless steel sink. Interior cabinetry and trim is hand-oiled teak lumber and ply or pressure laminates. Ventilation is provided in nine opening port lights, three overhead hatches and two dorades.
