?Tartan emerged on the auxiliary sailing yacht scene in 1960, with Charlie Britton at the helm. As a result of a collaboration with the renowned design firm of Sparkman and Stephens, and builder Douglass and McLeod of Grand River, Ohio, Charlie developed the company?s first model, the Tartan 27. The Tartan 27 constituted a departure from the existing norms of wooden construction to begin a new generation of quality crafted fiberglass hulls. Establishing them at the forefront of the boat building world, Tartan charged forward with new designs, such as the 34 and the Blackwatch 37. To meet expanding production demands the company opened a second manufacturing plant in Hamlet, North Carolina.

Continuing this evolution into the seventies, Tartan continued to expand and develop new models, each a success in its own right. Most notably the Tartan 37, Tartan 41 and Tartan Ten, all set new standards for performance on race courses throughout North America. While racing a Tartan was the pastime of many, performance cruising was becoming the new norm and Tartans became fixtures in cruising destinations throughout the world.

Tartan experienced a good deal of change in the eighties. John Richards and Jim Briggs took over the reins from Charlie and the mid eighties saw the development of several new Tartans. This time designs by Tim Jackett and the in-house Tartan design team. The first complete in house designs were the Tartan 31 and Tartan 372; both were Cruising World Boat of the Year winners in the early years of those contests.

The marine industry experienced a general downturn in the late eighties and Tartan consolidated its manufacturing in its Grand River, Ohio factory. As the industry experienced a recovery in the early 90?s, Tartan continued as a leader by substantially investing in new molds and designs further establishing the brand as a leader in the sailboat industry. Notable additions to the line included the Tartan 3500 and Tartan 4100. The 4100 went on to be the most prolific over 40 foot design in Tartan?s history. The success of these new models required a larger manufacturing facility and the company relocated to Fairport Harbor, its current location. Also in the late nineties, Tartan acquired the C&C brand and began the development of several new models under the C&C banner. As Tartan had evolved into a performance cruiser, C&C offered a companion brand that focused more heavily on the race boat segment. Although the company experienced a good deal of success with the C&C brand, having launched nearly 400 Tartan built C&C?s over a 10 year production run, the C&C brand was eventually licensed to another builder allowing Tartan to focus on its core product, luxury performance cruisers.

In addition to continued new model development, Tartan also refined its manufacturing processes and developed new higher tech materials, all aimed at enhancing the product. Its composite construction evolved from traditional wet hand lamination to the current infused laminates comprised of high strength e-glass reinforcements and light weight coring resin infused under vacuum with modified epoxy vinylester resin. Tartan also included carbon fiber masts as a part of their product offering along with rig innovations such as the CCR (Cruise Control Rig) and composite pocket boom. All features aimed at providing great performance, ease of handling and greater safety.

With over 5,000 hulls launched, Tartan continues to adhere to the foundation laid with the diminutive Tartan 27, great designs, exceptional craftsmanship, and industry leading technology all combined to deliver uncommon comfort and performance.?
