The Tartan 4400 LS (Limited Series), combines the classic Tartan look with an exceptional level of comfort and class.
The raised coachroof main cabin provides the headroom and open space owners have always wanted.
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. Because of the thoughtful hull design, she is forgiving and easily sailed in all conditions.
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, the 4400 LS.
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 4400 LS has a sail area to displacement ratio of 18, right in the traditional Tartan sweet spot, with the club racer in mind. Not enough sail area to get you into real trouble, but enough to move swiftly through all but the lightest of winds.
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.
One of the biggest advantage that the 4400 has over others in this class is an epoxy-resin and ATC Core-Cell hull that's vacuum-bagged and oven-baked, a process that produces stronger hulls that are better resistant to cyclical fatigue, water absorption, and the fiberglass print-through that plagues some polyester hulls. The resin-impregnation process ensures a consistent 65:35 glass-to-resin ratio, considerably stronger than the resin-rich polyester hulls built of traditional hand-layup techniques. Though costly for the builder, the process brings long-term value to the owner.
With a sail area-to-displacement ratio of 18.0 and an emphasis on hull strength, payload-carrying ability (which includes 200 gallons of water and 80 gallons of fuel), and luxurious accommodations (two staterooms, two heads, and a plush main saloon), the 4400 clearly leans toward the voyaging side of the spectrum. But with a fine bow entry, a flat underbody, and sleek appendages (a beavertail keel and spade rudder), it won't disappoint longtime Tartan fans who like a turn of speed.
Tim Jackett has designed a big boat that's exciting and easy to sail without compromising cruising essentials. The boat reaches her maximum 14-foot-1-inch beam just aft of the mast and carries much of it to the stern. The result is a very roomy and well-protected cockpit. At anchor, five adults can eat around the fold-out cockpit table, and in a slick touch of extravagance, an electric ram lowers the through-transom swim platform for an easy dash to the water or dinghy.
Once the sails are set, the cockpit affords maximum control. The double-ended mainsheet leads through a traveler set forward of the companionway, then back to self-tailing Harken 42 winches mounted port and starboard on the cockpit coaming. Immediately aft of these are two Harken 56s for trimming the jib sheets. The convenient setup puts the helmsman within an arm's length of all sheets as he sits on the leeward rail on either tack. The main halyard, reefing lines, and the traveler controls lead on the cabin top to sheet stoppers and Harken 42s beside the companionway.
The raised main salon is light and bright. To port, there is a large curved settee upholstered in blue leather with a varnished, drop leaf, solid cherry table with center storage bin and two dovetail drawers. Ample storage (cherry cabinets with ventilated raised cherry panel doors and open shelving) is outboard of the seat backs. The entertainment center, featuring a flush-mounted flat screen TV, is opposite the settee lounge area.
To starboard is the generous, forward-facing navigator's station with chart table with drawers under, lockers and space for extensive electronics and it can double as your office.
The forward master stateroom includes a centerline pedestal queen-sized berth with storage under, extensive storage lockers, 4 drawers, a hanging locker, tongue and groove solid cherry hull ceilings, and private access to the forward head. The aft guest stateroom, accessed to the starboard of the companionway has a queen-sized berth with storage under, a hanging locker, bureau and shelves.
Two heads -- one forward en-suite for the forward stateroom it has a separate shower stall with Plexiglass enclosure containing molded seat, vanity and sink. The day head is aft of mid-ship and to the port of the companionway, with shower, vanity and sink. Both have VacuFlush toilets with macerators and 24 gallon holding tanks with deck top access for pumpouts. Countertops are solid surface Granicote with integral sinks. There is ample storage in upper vanities and under-sink utility storage, accessed via raised panel hardwood cherry doors. Showers drain to separate sumps w/ automatic electric pumps.
