Full Specs


Generous in all accommodations, the 4100 gives extra attention to the space desires of the cook and navigator.

The galley is equipped with Corian counters, spacious lockers with louvered doors, dove tailed drawers, and elongated lockers designed to be provisioned for long distance cruising. Dual settees face a centerline teak drop-leaf table taking the best advantage of the spacious interior. Numerous drawers and lockers outline the main salon.

Obsession is a rare two stateroom, two head layout. The main stateroom is located aft with a queen sized berth set at an angle to allow better access and storage. The expansive aft head includes an enclosed shower. The forward stateroom has a seven foot double berth with access to the forward head and many drawers and lockers.The port dinette seat can be made into a double berth. There is an extension under the cushion and the filler cushion is on the forward berth.  

The Tartan 4100 has a unique stern design that provides the protection of a full transom, and the benefit of a stern platform. The reverse transom includes a clever built-in platform that when extended creates a little sun deck with built in boarding ladder. Features Include:

Exquisite oiled teak interior with varnished teak cabin sole with contrasting inlay. 15 Lewmar opening ports, 6 opening hatches, 4 large windows and 4 fans provide plenty of light and ventilation
