The graceful sheerline of this modern classic will immediately draw your eye. What you can't see is the technology and advanced construction practices used by the designer and builders at Tartan. Comfort and safety are high priority, and this Tartan 4300 has incorporated a thoughtfully designed deck, deep cockpit, and wide side decks that will meet or exceed your expectations.
The self tacking jib makes single handed sailing as simple as driving a car. The carbon mast saves weight aloft which transaltes into having three 200lb crew members sitting on the rail. The epoxy hull and core cell foam core keeps the hull weight down and prevents osmosis (blistering), thus the 15 year new boat hull warranty (10 years on a used boat) which is an industry high.
"Piantao" has just finished her 2 year 9,000 mile cruise starting from St. Augustine,Florida through the Caribbean down to Uruguay and back via Cancun and finally now in Annapolis, Maryland. I was able to do the final 1200 miles from Key West to Annapolis (8 days) and the boat handled very well out in the Ocean. She has all the equipment that one needs for distance cruising or just weekend sailing.

Manufacturer Provided Description
On the surface, the 4300 has all the design elements of classic American yacht design. Graceful sheerline, balanced overhangs, complimentary low coach roof, sweeping cockpit coamings and thoughtful convenience details on deck all give the 4300 a very classic profile. However, built within these stylish good looks are elements that take full advantage of Tartan's advanced construction practices providing excellent performance that is realized with minimum effort. A long and lean hull is fit with a choice of low CG keels 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. A modern classic in the making, the Tartan 4300 promises to be a head turner in any harbor.
The Tartan 4300 has been designed with Tartan's ?Cruise Control Rig?; key features are a double spreader tapered carbon mast, self-tacking 100% 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.
The Tartan tradition of offering unmatched interior comfort is expanded in the Tartan 4300. Choose from layout plans with two or three cabins to meet your cruising family needs. Both feature 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, 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 electrical controls and nav locker to house a full array of navigation equipment rounds out the central living areas. Aft the 4300 can be fit with either a single cabin or split aft cabin providing private accommodations for 3 couples. Finish throughout is varnished cherry cabinetry and trim, and a varnished teak and holly sole, the 4300 surrounds her owner with opulent comfort.
