This is a GREAT cruising layout, with two separate sleeping cabins on opposite ends of the boat, dual access to the roomy head and shower, a true navigation station, a functional galley at sea or dockside, and a welcoming and comfortable salon.  

Forward stateroom includes a 6'5" V-berth (78" wide at the most), with drawer storage beneath, a sink and vanity with foldaway seat, and a louvered teak two panel opening to the salon.  There is plenty of storage for clothes and gear in drawers and a cedar lined hanging locker.  

The salon is comfortable and thoughtfully laid out with port and starboard settees, the latter of which features wraparound seating on each end, and a nice teak dropleaf table at centerline with storage inside.  There is also considerable storage outboard of the settees.  Other features are glass and bottle storage, overhead and reading lights, Sony CD/stereo with Polyplanar speakers, overhead opening hatch and several SS opening ports.  Great comfort aboard at mealtime and otherwise.  

The head is located aft and to stb, with access from the companionway and salon/nav station.  There is also a separate access from the aft cabin for privacy.  The standing shower and overall head compartment are roomy for a 41 foot boat!  Functional cruising in comfort!  There is a new raritan manual pump toilet, sink and vanity, opening port, and of course plenty of storage.  

The private aft cabin features a diagonal double berth, 4 opening ports and an overhead hatch, reading lights, and private access to the head compartment.  

There are separate controls for the reverse cycle air conditioning and heat units (Cruisair/SMX).  

Finally, the nav station is the heart of the boat, with a comfortable and secure executive swivel chair, chart table with storage underneath, drawer storage and chart storage, and access to a host of electronics (see electonics section).  

The cruising layout of the Tartan 4100 is hard to fault; whether for a day sail or extended cruise, it has what you need to travel in comfort, style, and ease of function.
