Decades and decades has Tartan Sailboats has made history. The resourceful designers, engineers and boat builders of Tartan Yachts have continuously established new standards from performance to quality. Tartan Yachts has been able to do just that by staying true to themselves and the company, all while providing the owners with a Tartan Yacht that delivers both luxurious accommodations and a safe, well-mannered sailing performance, in all conditions of the sea. In 1960, Tartan emerged on the sailing yacht scene, with Charlie Britton at the helm. Charlie developed the company’s first model, the Tartan 27, thanks to a collaboration with the renowned design firm of Sparkman and Stephens and builder Douglass and McLeod of Grand River, Ohio. Jumping into the seventies, Tartan continued to expand the company and develop new models. During the eighties Tartan experiences a great deal of change. John Richards and Jim Briggs took over the reins from Charlie and close to the mid-eighties is when the new development of several Tartans started. The first complete in house design was the Tartan 31 and Tartan 372. Both these yachts were Cruising World Boat of Year winners in their early years. The late nineties is when Tartan acquired the C & C brand and began to development several new models. Although Tartan experiences a large deal of success with the C & C brand, launching nearly 400 Tartan build C & C’s over a 10 year production run, unfortunately the C & C brand was eventually licensed to another builder which allowed Tartan to focus on its core product, luxury cruisers with great performance. Today, with over 5,000 hulls launched, Tartan still continues to adhere to the foundation of great designs, exceptional craftsmanship and leading technology and let’s not forget about the uncommon comfort and performance.

Tartan Custom Sailing Yachts
Full customization and personalization for the experienced yachtsman. Did you know Tartan Yachts is also a full customization yacht designer and builder? Now you do! Over the years the company has found that Tartan and more recently Legacy owners are a bit different from many other boating enthusiasts. Most of them have years and years of experience out on the open sea, and majority of them owning several boats in their lifetime. When they go to consider a new boat, they generally have a well-developed idea of what it is that they are searching for based on what is most important to them during when they are sailing. Tartan and Legacy yachts are very personalized to meet each individuals needs but of course this customization is bound by the constraints of existing models and deck plans. For some yachtsman out there, a solution may be a complete custom build and if it is, TLC Yachts (Tartan, Legacy, and Custom) is the way to go!
