The 3400's sail-handling equipment and overall rig design are aimed at achieving optimum performance with minimum hassle. The mast is built with a unique, integrated, low-friction track system, allowing the full-battened main to be easily raised and lowered within a lazy jack system. Custom-made for Tartan, the carbon-fiber boom is a "trough" design further aiding mainsail drops and mainsail flaking. To cover the main, simply pull over the boom-stored sailcover and you're done. By optimizing the Tartan 3400's strength and weight characteristics and designing an easily driven hull the Tartan 3400's standard headsail can be a smart, roller-furling 100% jib, trimmed to a self-tacking cabintop track. This working sail, with the tack located just aft of the stem, is used for all upwind and heavy-air sailing while providing effortless tacking for sailing shorthanded or in a confined harbor. When sailing off the wind the optional high-clewed furling reacher can be deployed for top performance.
The 3400's high volume hull form provides enough space for exceptional cruising accommodations and storage and a powerful shape that is easily driven and in balance over a wide range of sailing conditions. Forward sections are slightly veed providing an easy motion in a seaway and her aft sections are full and flat offering high speed potential in heavy conditions. The hull's volume is evenly distributed through her length, which provides a symmetrical shape at all heel angles and maintains her light helm in more challenging conditions.
The deck is designed for maximum comfort and safety and embraces classic yacht aesthetics. Her cockpit offers high seatbacks for comfort and a deep and secure cockpit for safety. Wide sidedecks allow her crew to move fore and aft without being encumbered by the excessive house structures seen on so many current production offerings. The wrap-around coaming not only provides a striking tie to her heritage, it also serves as a splash rail and convenient location for mounting a dodger, both of which offer additional cockpit comfort and security. As with all Tartans, the 3400 features tall and distinctive teak toerails that not only enhance her yacht status but also provide an important toe hold in rough weather sailing. Ventilation, always a Tartan priority, is provided by an abundance of stainless steel opening portlights, deck hatches, and dorades.
Using innovative geometry in the attachment area of the keel, three choices allow you to tailor-fit your Tartan 3400 to your sailing area. Additionally, the keels are interchangeable without hull modification, allowing maximum flexibility for now and the future. Change your sailing area, change your keel. If you decide to sell your 3400 her new owner can order a different keel match-made to his or her sailing area. For those without draft restrictions the 6' 6" bulbed fin will offer optimal performance. The Tartan Beavertail keel offers excellent stability, righting moment, and good upwind performance with a mid-range draft of 4' 11". A Tartan trademark through the '70s and '80s, the keel/centerboard configuration is also available on the 3400 for those of you who sail in very shallow areas. The 4-foot, board-up draft allows gunkholing into shallow creeks and harbors, under sail or power, while the bulb shape and board-down draft of 6' 8" produce excellent stability and superb upwind performance.
