Tartan 4100 - Spark - $212,000

Spark is a 1999 Tartan 4100 that is now listed exclusively for sale with Yoti, Queensland. 

The Tartan 4100 is one of the best production cruising vessels build in the USA, designed for discerning cruiser sailors looking for comfort, speed and safety. She feels right at home rounding buoys, blue water cruising and family day sailing. 

Spark has a beautifully crafted and designed interior and we were impressed by the size and useful storage. The main saloon has a drop leave table, large enough to accommodate the whole family and the port salon settee converts to spare double berth. The galley is well laid out with ample counter and locker space and in true American style comes with an oversized fridge/ freezer. The L-Shape design will be appreciated when cooking at sea. 

The well designed nav station has duplicate Nav Instruments and GPS plotter and has a very comfortable swivel chair. 

The private forward cabin has a massive V-shaped berth, vanity and ample lockers for storage. During the day a clever folding louvred window to the saloon adds to the feeling of space. The master cabin features a diagonally placed queen size berth, with direct assess to the very spacious head with enclosed shower. 

Her full sized T-Shaped cockpit has comfortable seating, a central helm position with nav instruments and GPS plotter and good all round visibility. Her sail controls are led back to the cockpit with big Harken winches, to easily manage her powerful sail plan. Under sail, the 4100 impresses with speed and agility. 

Once anchored her transom opens to reveal build in transom steps with small access/ bathing platform with swimming ladder. The perfect way to step aboard from dock or dinghy. 

Spark comes with all the desirable blue water cruising equipment; Full Raymarine Nav package with double GPS plotters, Radar, AIS, SSB Radio, Spectra watermaker, 400W Solar, wind generator, 2KW inverter and Hydrovane self-steering. Once back in the real world you will also appreciate her recently fitted Sidepower bow thruster. 


The 4100 brings a high level of comfort, beauty and performance, built with strength and durability in mind. Spark is ready to take you anywhere with speed and comfort and safety. These hard to find Tartan 4100 rarely come on the market.
