I saw what I believe is the boat pictured in this thread still sitting in D'ville this past weekend.
It really is a shame to see such a nice looking boat caught in limbo.

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.

Hi All, I realize I am adding to old thread. My wife and I recently stepped onto a new Tartan 3700 and to say the least were blown away. What a fine sailboat. We have decided to raise our top dollar considerably that we will consider spending on our purchase of a sailboat.
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,

2. why is mako not a "safe working" boat.

|joeasburyp||I LOVE my new to me Tartan 27, 1970. I hope your issues are worked out, court or sailing, hum, that's a hard choice.|
