Design 2060 - Tartan 46/48


The Tartan 46 was introduced in 1972 as a big fiberglass production yacht that would rate well under I.O.R. but also be an excellent cruising boat. The production run ended in 1974 with just 8 boats being built. The boats were heavily built and with 14' of beam provided an enormous living space below.


Here are the plans.


Here's an interior shot.


A ketch (as well as yawl) version was developed with traditional transom. 6 of these were built as well. Here's the sail plan for the ketch.

Here's an image of the ketch.


A centerboard model was also added to the lineup.
