According to advanced reports, the new 40-foot Tartan 4000 appears to have many elements—carbon fiber mast, boom and rudder, infused epoxy composite hull and deck, and all lead keel—that you might find on many race boats, and the solid stock cherry cabinetry and a spacious accommodations plan that all cruisers will appreciate. The owner's stateroom features a tongue and groove cherry hull liner, extensive cabinetry, island berth, and an ensuite head with stall shower. The main saloon boasts comfortable sofa seating, a drop leaf table, and furniture grade cabinets while the galley has been optimized to include extensive counter and storage space, and a large top and front access reefer.
On deck, the 4000’s wide side decks and molded bulwarks with a solid teak caprail provide safe and secure movement fore and aft. And stainless steel handrails running the length of the housetop provide safe on deck maneuvering in the roughest conditions.
The cockpit is all about comfort and convenience. A twin wheel layout provides easy centerline access aft to the hinged boarding/swim platform and also places the helmsman in a great sailing position. The seats are contoured for comfort and wrap around a removable teak cockpit table.
Hull number 1 and 2 are currently in production and should launch sometime this year. I can’t wait to take one for a test drive.
