If I were you, I would avoid going with a recent model Tartan.
The company is basically still questionable and it is very likely that whatever company emerges from the ashes of the old one will have ZERO liability and responsibility for any of the already manufactured boats.
Most of the plans for re-forming or selling the company appear to be ASSETS-ONLY, and don't require any of the boat warranties to be honored to any degree.

Having read a lot of the negative posts about Tartan and the epoxy hulls and warranty issues I was wondering if now things have settled down?
Is there any chance I could buy a late model 3700 or 3400 and get warranty service if needed, even if I wasn't original owner?
Is the company sound or are they in trouble?
Thank you all,

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
