2006 Tartan 3400

17 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

The 3400’s high volume hull form provides enough space for exceptional cruising accommodations and storage and a powerful shape that is easily driven and in balance over a wide range of sailing conditions. Forward sections are slightly veed providing an easy motion in a seaway and her aft sections are full and flat offering high speed potential in heavy conditions. The hull’s volume is evenly distributed through her length, which provides a symmetrical shape at all heel angles and maintains her light helm in more challenging conditions.
A deck designed for sailing

The deck is designed for maximum comfort and safety and embraces classic yacht aesthetics. 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 without being encumbered by the excessive house structures seen on so many current production offerings. The wrap-around coaming not only provides a striking tie to her heritage, it also serves as a splash rail and convenient location for mounting a dodger, both of which offer additional cockpit comfort and security. 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.

A Tartan’s good looks have always provided her owners with head-turning prideful entrances into harbors as well as helping maintain their value by not chasing the fad of the moment. The 3400 continues this tradition with a sophisticated hull and deck design.
Built for strength, safety, and excellent speed

The 3400 takes advantage of Tartan’s advanced sailboat manufacturing techniques. Her hull laminate is an infused composite of uni-directional e-glass, BPA epoxy resin, and synthetic coring. The exceptional adhesive properties of BPA epoxy allow Tartan to eliminate the “fat” found in normal production boat hulls.
