The Tartan 4100 hit the mark when Tim Jackett set out to create a performance cruiser. Built from 1996 until 2008, it has been the most prolific over forty-foot performance cruiser in Tartan’s 56-year history. With her head turning good looks, solid, safe construction and powerful sail plan, the Tartan 4100 is well respected for her speed and exceptional performance.
The large T-shaped cockpit has comfortable seating and primaries within easy reach of the helm. With all control lines led aft to the safety of the cockpit, she is easily handled by a couple. The 27” high lifelines, wide side decks and effective non-skid make working on deck safe.
Below decks, her hand crafted teak interior and quality materials throughout display a craftsmanship that blends innovative design features with classic good looks. The two cabin/two head layout provides comfortable accommodations for you and your guests and affords privacy in the process. The galley is spacious, with loads of refrigeration and counter space and is designed for offshore work, with good bracing space and handholds.
Our offering, “FIRST LIGHT”, has served her owners well and been upgraded extensively over the last few years. Some highlights include:
Her owners sailed her to the Med and enjoyed her there for a while, then put her on a ship back to the States. She now sits in our yard and is ready for new owners to set off on their own explorations. Her Majestic Blue hull and toast fabric are certainly eye-catching wherever you take her.
If you are looking for a quality, made in America cruising boat that is equally at home cruising locally, rounding the buoys or headed offshore for distant horizons, “FIRST LIGHT” is certainly more than capable and worthy of your personal inspection. Call and make an appointment to see her today!
