Your Day on the Water just got better!


The Tartan 3500 is a thoroughbred cruiser/racer and may be the perfect size for those looking for that elusive combination of elegance and speed. She has won her fair share of silver, yet can deliver her crew in safety, comfort, and style on a weekend adventure or extedned passage.


The interior is rubbed teak, with easy maintenance, white battened overhead access panels and Ultra leather in the main cabin area. 10 stainless steel opening port lights w/screens, 2 stainless steel deck hatches w/screens, two 4″ chrome Dorade vents and 3 cabin fans provide excellent natural light & ventilation. There is a good mix of DC & AC lighting including courtesy lights to illuminate the teak and holly cabin sole and cockpit on night sails.

The forward cabin has a 78″ x 60″ vee berth, hanging locker, cabinetry, screened deck hatch, and two opening ports w/screens.

The salon’s starboard and port settees serve as comfortable single berths with storage underneath, behind and outboard. The teak drop leaf table seats 6 adults. The varnished teak interior grab rails make movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.

The U-Shaped galley to starboard has storage galore, Corian counter tops, near center line 9″ deep single sink with manual water foot pump, hot and cold pressure water with a 6 gallon, 110v AC/engine heated hot water heater, a large front and top loadinsulated ice box w/ Adler Barbour 12v DC refrigeration, a bimbaled, 3 burner Force 10 propane stove w/oven & GE microwave, and a built in garbage bin.

The aft facing navigation station is aft of the galley. There are ample related lockers and room for an array of electronics.

The head compartment is to port with a manual head & holding tank (deck discharge with by pass for direct pump out), molded Corian solid surface counter tops w/integral sink, handheld shower, shower grate, independent shower sump pump, cabinet and storage shelves, and opening port w/screen.
