Broker's Comments
You'll be hard pressed to find a yacht of this caliber that has been so well maintained.  Her owners have lovingly cared for her for the past 11 years and it shows the moment you lay eyes on her.  Day One has been lift kept for the majority of her life.  Each Spring when she is uncovered for the season, her owners give her a thorough inspection, canvasing every inch of the boat to identify all systems are in working order and ready to go.  This even includes exercising the emergency bilge pump at the helm - no detail is overlooked and if any work needs to be done, it is.  This spring alone, the owners invested over $15k worth of upgrades and service work to ensure she is just as good today as she was when she left the factory floor. You can tell by the neatly coiled docklines that this has been a pampered and well attended to yacht.  Anyone who has ever owned a boat knows how much time (and money!) it takes to keep a yacht in Bristol condition, and anyone who has ever bought a boat before knows these are the owners who you want to buy from!  This is your opportunity!

The Tartan 3400 was designed as a couples cruiser that would be a comfortable coastal cruiser (with occasional offshore runs) and a enjoyable daysailer with a boatload of friends.  One peek into the accommodations below decks reveals a surprisingly spacious interior with a large aft owners cabin with double bed and head with separate shower stall. The guest cabin is forward in the V-berth and has good storage and hanging space.

The main cabin make the most of the beam with two settees on either side of the centerline drop leaf table, which will accommodate four for dinner with ease. A surprisingly large forward facing navigation station is to starboard, with a wide desk that will accommodate a standard chart.  You don't see that on modern cruising boats anymore!

Another thing that is reminiscent of days past is the rich polished solid cherry hardwood used throughout the boat for joinery and cabinets. The cost to outfit a boat with this woodwork today is cost prohibitive for most production cruisers and is now only found in high end and custom builds.  They truly don't make them like they used to!

The galley makes efficient use of space and contains everything you need to prepare a quick sandwich underway or an elaborate meal for guests. Complete with a 2 burner stove / oven, refrigeration, deep sink and plenty of storage.

Hull and Deck

To achieve both the lightness in the hull and deck that enhances boat speed and to create a boat that is as strong and durable as possible, Tartan has adopted a standard building technique that it usually employed only in high-end custom yachts and one-off racing machines.

The hull laminates are a composite of unidirectional eglass, epoxy resin and Corecell coring that are laid up as a single unit and then infused with the epoxy to create a hull that has the highest glass-to-resin ratio possible ? 65-percent glass to 35- percent resin. The finished hulls are then cured in an autoclave oven at 145 degrees for 24 hours to ensure that the epoxy has fully cured.

The resulting hulls are lighter, stronger and more durable than a standard polyester resin hull. The weight that has been saved in the hull can be moved into the keel to enhance stability and sailing performance.

Day One has been lift kept her entire life, aside from her local sailing outings.

  • NPG Isophthalic gelcoat
  • Infused BPA modified epoxy hull
  • Locally reinforced at high load areas
  • Closed cell synthetic foam hull coring
  • Resin infused hull laminated in "one shot" eliminating secondary bonding of structural materials
  • Internal structural grid designed to carry rig and keel loads, glass taped into hull

  • All hull penetrations made into solid fiberglass "core windows"
  • Transferable 15-year hull structural and blister warranty - Good until 2021!

  • Hull Buffed & Waxed - Fall 2018
  • Bottom Painted - Fall 2018

The deck is formed in a similar format, although Baltec balsawood coring is used instead of Corecell because it's stiffer and lighter. Her cockpit offers high seatbacks for comfort and a deep and secure cockpit for safety. Wide sidedecks allow her crew to move fore and aft with ease.  As with all Tartans, the 3400 features tall and distinctive teak toerails that not only enhance her yacht status but also provide an important toe hold in rough weather sailing. Ventilation, always a Tartan priority, is provided by an abundance of stainless steel opening portlights, deck hatches, and dorades.

Day One features the coveted centerboard configuration for those wanting to break from the pack and explore the very shallow areas off limits most sailboats. The 3'11" board-up draft allows gunkholing into shallow creeks and harbors, under sail or power, while the bulb shape and board-down draft of 7' produce excellent stability and superb upwind performance.

Sails and Rigging

The 3400's sail-handling equipment and overall rig design are aimed at achieving optimum performance with minimum hassle. The mast is built with a unique, integrated, low-friction track system, allowing the full-battened main to be easily raised and lowered within a lazy jack system. Custom-made for Tartan, the carbon-fiber boom on is a pocket boom design further aiding mainsail drops and mainsail flaking. To cover the main, simply pull over the custom boom-stored sail cover and you're done. The furling headsail is trimmed to a self-tacking cabin top track. This working sail, with the tack
located just aft of the stem, is used for all upwind and heavy-air sailing while providing effortless tacking for sailing shorthanded or in a confined harbor.

Single or Shorthanded sailing is a breeze on this boat! All rigging is lead aft to the cockpit, the jib is self-tacking jib, you have autopilot to steer for you as you move about the boat and when it's time to drop the sail, simply release the clutch and watch the mainsail flake itself effortlessly into the pocket boom!

Day One is a beautiful, well equipped Tartan 3400 that combines high-tech construction and modern design with classic Tartan styling.  An update to the beloved Tartan 34, the 3400 is a boat that more than lives up to the Tartan name by providing her owners with a cruiser that sails extremely well, with cutting edge boatbuilding technology, with an interior that feels much larger than a comparable 34' boat.

Day One has been lovingly cared for by her second owners who have owned her for nearly her entire life.  No expense has been spared in her upkeep and many upgrades have been made to make your experience onboard even more comfortable and enjoyable. 

This boat is a true gem!
