We have a thing for Tartans. And the 4300 to our eyes has all of the design elements of classic American yacht design. The balanced overhangs, sweeping cockpit, and thoughtful details make for a lovely combination of grace and fortitude. These are classic lines, for sure – but this boat isn’t retro. Carbon mast and “pocket boom” along with a self-tacking jib bring modern advantages. In fact, the 4300 was named Cruising World’s Domestic Boat of the Year and Best Midsize Luxury Cruiser, and was praised for its balanced helm and stiff, steadfast ride.
This is two cabin lay out designed for couple’s cruising or small family getaways. The fit and finish of Tartan interiors are truly inviting – both warm and open with varnished cherry cabinetry and an abundance of ventilation with 14 opening portlights, 6 deck hatches and 4 dorade vents.
This particular example appears to be exceptionally well-maintained and sharp with her majestic blue hull and red and gold boot stripes. We can’t stop looking at her. See more at Freeman Eckley.
