The Tartan tradition of offering unmatched interior comfort is expanded in the Tartan 4300. "Realized" is the two cabin layout. 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 ultra leather seating, entertainment locker and plenty of storage in varnished cherry cabinetry. The galley is fully equipped for preparing meals dockside or underway. A full navigation station with electrical controls and nav locker to house a full array of navigation equipment rounds out the central living areas. Aft the 4300 has a single cabin providing private accommodations for a second couple. The aft head has a separate shower stall Finish throughout is varnished cherry cabinetry and trim, and a varnished teak and holly sole, the 4300 surrounds her owner with opulent comfort.
The aft head shower on "Realized" was factory customized to include a wet storage locker.

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. Through optimized hull design the 4300 will extend your daily range, expanding the possibilities for weekend cruising and offering long daily passages offshore. Safety and comfort aboard require a thoughtfully designed deck and cockpit and as with past Tartans, the 4300 will excel in this area.Visibility, wide and uncluttered side decks, and a deep and secure cockpit are essential elements of the 4300. Additionally, the Tartan 4300 deck offers an abundance of ventilation through 14 opening portlights, 6 deck hatches and 4 dorade vents. The traveler is mounted clear of the cockpit and coachroof. A convenient walk through transom with platform provides access for swimming or for stern boarding from a dinghy. The 4300 is fit with the best hardware from the best suppliers in the industry to assure that lines run free and easy. Trimmed with just the right amount of exterior teak, the 4300 is classic without being a burdensome taskmaster.

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 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 crew members 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. Off-wind, 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 head sails 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.

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.
