tartan sailboats

I am currently looking at several Tartan's. I used to own a t-37 and was very happy. Now I looked to get a newer 3500 (2002) or a 2007 3400. I have read some bad threads of hull issues in the newer boats. Does anyone have any feedback on the 3500's and has Tartan responded to the issues with the newer hulls? Has there been any issues with the 3400? thanks in advance.

Funny you should mention that... This boat is a 2007 down in Deltaville VA. Guy had it 3 months and had to sell it (don't ask me why). Custom paint job, lots of bells and whistles. 15 year transferable warranty from Tartan. Thats if you can get them to return your phone call. Good luck.

Hello,

The Name is Will Vest and I am the Tartan C&C Dealer for Virginia and North Carolina. I want to assure you that there is nothing wrong with this boat! I am willing to prove it! You purchase this boat subject to a survey and if the survey discloses any of the problems that this site has been implying then I will pay for the survey!! (and tear up the purchase agreement). What more can I do for the purchaser and the seller?

Will,

EDIT: Based on further revelations made here: Tartan Issue , in particular post #18, I have decided to remove these suggestions for Tartan. I will keep an open mind about the concerns some recent Tartan owners have raised, and hope all will be resolved quickly and to everyone's reasonable satisfaction.

I still would be interested in hearing more about the new 4300, a design that would suit our sailing style very well.

My wife and I just ordered a 3400 and will be getting delivery in late November. We also were very interested in that 3500 and definatly would have purchased it except for the draft. We sail in very shallow waters and cannot have anything except a centerboard keel. We are repeat Tartan owners. We spent MANY,MANY months looking and researching boats and there was nothing that could compare to the Tartan and its offerings. We have no regrets re: our decision to purchase and expect only a top quality boat.

However, aside from this re: the recent litigaton.....just remember....There are TWO sides to every story!

I would certainly proceed with both eyes open in regards to the warranty issue claims made by some and take the comments, not confirmed by reputable and/or neutral source BTW, with a grain of salt.

...wait until the court papers are published I guess. Better still, have your attorney pull filings right NOW!

Look, whether it is a Tartan or a any new just do your homework, have your attorney do the prior/current litigation homework and reach out and talk with the unhappy owners. Find out and call around...

Where are all the other unhappy owners? How many 3700 have been built? How many hulls have cracked? One is to many, yes. Not fixing it...bad, very bad.
