Tartan 4400 Sailboat Review | Cruising World
Speed & Distance
Since the early 1960s, Tartan Yachts has been a pioneer in many areas of yacht design and construction. Founder Charlie Britton was one of the first to build production fiberglass boats, using the wet-layup technique with polyester resin, then on to vinylester resin for the outside skins, and finally to vacuum-bagged epoxy for hulls.
Tartans have a long reputation as racer/cruisers, back to the days before the phrase had been coined. No less a designer than Sparkman & Stephen's Olin Stephens drew the lines for Tartans in the 60s and 70s. Clearly emphasizing the racer in racer/cruiser, Tartan's designer Tim Jackett has chosen to take this Tartan model down a path blazed by quite a few other builders, producing this raised deck saloon model.
Unusual perhaps to find Tartan in the role of follower, but given the wild excesses of this design trend in recent years, Jackett has been wise to sit back, watch the evolution of the concept, and then step in with a carefully considered design. As with Oyster and others who have done it right, Tartan's deck salon design manages to blend the large windows and raised roof into the sweep and flow of the deck; some builders went to extremes that brought to mind greenhouses dropped unceremoniously onto cruising decks.
The "beavertail bulb" with a draft of 5'5", accommodations inside are two staterooms, two heads.
Deck hardware is from Harken; both boom and the double spreader mast are aluminum. Auxiliary power is from a Yanmar 75 hp diesel.
The expansive galley with fine cherry cabinetry compliments the living quarters supporting extensive offshore cruising or island hopping. Along with two heads, the 4400 also has ample storage. Beneath the waterline is where the Tartan 4400 stands out from the rest in her class. The hull shape is all about upwind efficiency and downwind speed. The hull design features the same principles as all Tartans: strong performance measured in both speed and manner. The ideas and concepts that go into successful club racers have gone into the 4400 hull shape and foil. Extensive strength, durability and safety are an integral part of the 4400.
