Tartan Sold...press release attached (8/16/2010)

Not to poke a hornets nest...but looks like Tartan has new owners. I'll leave it at that.


Tartan/C&C Change Hands


Tartan/C&C Change Hands
By Peter Nielsen Posted August 16, 2010

Courtesy Tartan Yachts
After celebrating the Tartan brand's 50th anniversary this year, Ohio-based Tartan/C&C Yachts has changed hands. Steve Malbasa, a retired Cleveland businessman and Tartan 4300 owner, and Tartan/C&C's chief designer, Tim Jackett, are the new owners.

"This is great news for us and for the sailing industry," Jackett said. "We welcome Steve and look forward to further developing our passion for boat design and building."

In the works are a move to new premises complete with a factory showroom, along with new model development and a fresh look at dealer network.

Jackett's goal is to see Tartan/C&C "sit proudly at the tip of the premium sailboat in North America and in markets beyond."

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.

I take it you have no clue what Jackett/Ross/et al have been up to.

They've basically screwed over a lot of people, their own lawyers, the companies that sold them the supplies to make the Tartan and C&C boats, their employees and then used thuggish threats of frivolous lawsuits to muzzle the public on what they've been up to. They've repeatedly sold Tartan and C&C in order to dodge warranty and other liabilities and make it harder for the people they owe money to collect.

People have bought $300,000 boats from them that broke—with serious structural issues—within a few years of being commissioned. When the boat owners asked Tartan/C&C/Novis to repair their boats as required under the 15 year warranty, weaseled and waffled and the owners had to sue Tartan. Tartan filed suit against these owners and accused them of being "internet" terrorists.

Calm down, SD. Take a deep breath, have some milk and cookies, relax. Breathe in..... breathe out.... breathe in...... breathe out.....

Feel better?

I never sided with anyone in this thread. I just asked a question.

Thanks SD. Good to know even I am NOT planning on buying a Tartan. I hope they don't sue you for revealing their past history here.

Having milk and cookies is not good while you are angry.
