Tartan Collection / New Build

Tartan 4300

The Tartan 4300 was designed with cruising comfort in mind. However, designer Tim Jackett has never sacrificed performance or good looks. The Tartan 4300 is easily handled by one or two people and comes to life as soon as her sails are raised. She is one of the prettiest designs that Tartan has ever built with sweeping lines and low profile. The 4300 is enjoyed as a weekender or as a ‘round the world cruising boat. Sailors recognize the great versatility and quality this design offers.
