Some cruising boats are at their best in the dealer's parking lot. Not the Tartan 4100, which is at her best either romping into a stiff sou'wester or anchored sedately in your favorite harbor. In either situation you'll appreciate the mobility of the T-shaped cockpit, the clear visibility afforded from behind the 44-inch wheel, and the fact that the hefty Harken 53 self-tailing chrome primary winches are located within reach of the helm. Wide, flat sidedecks, effective nonskid surfacing, and extra-high 27-inch lifelines make working on deck safe. And traditionalists won't be disappointed with the 4100's on-deck detailing; solid teak toerails and stern taffrail, a polished stainless-steel stemhead fitting, and special mooring chocks with built-in rollers are as functional as they are beautiful. The Tartan 4100 turns 41 feet into the ultimate getaway space. The master stateroom features a queen-size berth with hanging locker, shelves, clothes stowage, and in-suite head with shower. The salon, with a varnished drop-leaf centerline dinette table that can handle eight guests for dinner or drinks, has a built-in entertainment center. The L-shaped galley features a top- and front-loading icebox, dual 9-inch-deep stainless-steel sinks, and a 3-burner gimbaled stove with oven and broiler.
