Tartan 5100

Following on the heels of the successful Tartan 4400, the 5100 expands on the possibilities offered by the raised saloon layout. Tartan's 5100 sports a very long sailing waterline and extremely clean hull form, promising fast passages and broader cruising range for the dedicated performance sailor. Her balanced hull volume ensures a well-mannered yacht that will reward her owner with exhilarating performance. Should your desire be racing to Bermuda, the 5100 will get you there in comfort and ahead of the pack. Tartan's dedication to the most advanced yacht construction allows the design to maximize the performance ratios. Oven-cured, Core-Cell, composite epoxy hull; infused vinylester deck; carbonfiber rudder and post; and carbon spars are a few of the more noteworthy advances that allow the 5100 to deliver both top-end performance and elegant cruising amenities. Builders who stick with antiquated building techniques cannot match the unique combination of speed, strength, and safety that Tartan's technology allows and the Tartan 5100 takes full advantage; a robust SA/Disp ratio of 20.5, Disp/L ratio of 173 and Ballast/Disp ratio of 35%. These are race boat numbers. Only those that commit to front-line engineering and construction can achieve them, and still provide the interior luxury of a Tartan.

The 5100 anticipates offshore cruising with limited crew, so the focus is on ease of handling. The rig capitalizes on the high sail area/displacement ratio and utilizes a 105% jib which trims to the cockpit primary winches, conveniently located for the helmsman and crew. The powerful mainsail is also trimmed at the helm station providing the short-handed sailor exceptional control. In light air, fit with a Code O furler and reacher, the 5100 will leave lesser boats in her wake. As with all Tartans, the 5100 sports a high-aspect ratio, balanced spade rudder, offering pinpoint control under sail or in challenging docking maneuvers. Each owner of the 5100 can select the keel choice that best fits his sailing needs; keel centerboard for the depth-challenged regions of the world; the Beavertail keel affording maximum righting moment, and excellent all around performance; or for those with no draft restrictions, a deep, bulbed fin.

On deck, the 5100 provides superior visibility for the helmsman at either of two steering positions. The hingedown walk-through transom offers ready access from the water or from a dinghy. Tartan has always placed a premium on wide side decks, believing that it is of paramount importance to be able to quickly move unobstructed fore and aft. On some boats, its just too much of a challenge. On deck security is enhanced by 1 1/4”stanchions and rails, and 30” double lifelines. Three inch solid-stock tapered toerails with integral mooring chocks offer not only signature Tartan good looks, but also give her crew a solid foot brace in arduous conditions. Safety and security under sail are benchmark design parameters for this, the largest of the Tartan fleet.

The interior of the Tartan 5100 spares nothing in offering her crew opulent comfort. A number of interior arrangement plans allow each owner to optimize his 5100 to his individual needs and requirements. Choose between three or four private cabins, each fit with accommodations for two. It's your choice whether the light and airiness of the raised saloon houses a living room-like lounging area, or the galley, dinette seating and a fully appointed nav station. Regardless of layout, Tartan's solid-stock, handcrafted cherry joiner work is evident throughout. Satin varnish, solid-stock raised panel locker doors, 1 1/4” raised panel passage doors, dovetail drawers, curved laminated trim, and attention to furniture detail abound. Compare the 5100 interior to the finest the world has to offer...your Tartan will match up to the best.

Tartan has made the commitment to excellence in construction, affording the designer greater latitude in offering that most rare combination; comfort and speed. Ask our competitors about their build techniques, if they are not talking about epoxy hull laminates and carbonfiber masts, they simply cannot deliver the performance
you deserve.
