The Tartan 3400 offers a very large and roomy interior for a 34' boat. She is finished in beautiful varnished cherry with teak and holly sole. Her rich, inviting feel is apparent the minute you descend the companionway. 

Her layout is open and airy. To starboard of the companionway is the large head with separate shower. Forward of the head is the forward facing nav station that houses the electrical panel and has more than enough room to navigate in comfort. To port is the galley that features a Force 10 stove, front and top loading refrigerator and very large sink. Aft of the galley is the fully enclosed and private aft cabin with a berth that easily accommodates two adults. 

Moving forward in the main salon, there are settees port and starboard with cabinetry outboard port and starboard with a flat screen TV mounted to port. On centerline is a drop leaf dining table in varnished cherry. 

Forward is the v-berth that accommodates two with hanging lockers port and starboard. 

Navigation and Electronics

New Raymarine electronics 2020:

  • Raymarine hybrid touch screen radar/chartplotter in navpod @ helm
  • Raymarine digital radar dome on Scan Strut mount on the backstay
  • Raymarine below deck autopilot with wireless remote control
  • (3) Raymarine i70s multiview displays above companionway in custom teak mount
  • Standard Horizon Quest + VHF @ nav station with ram mic @ helm

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 sail cover 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 cabin top 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  high-clewed furling reacher can be deployed for top performance.

Tartan 3400 Deck Description

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.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Tartan 3400 is both a tribute to the rich history of her predecessors and the embodiment of Tartan Yachts' dedication to advanced construction and equipment technologies. Following in the wake of nearly 1,000 34-foot Tartans, spread over a production run from the late 60's (Tartan 34 Classic) through the late 80's (Tartan 34II), she shares traditional good looks with both models and embraces innovative design elements to simplify sailhandling and provide superior performance. These refinements to the performance cruiser are made possible by Tartan's dedication to advancements in materials and methods, previously available only in the custom boat market or through prohibitively expensive options.
