Excalibur (Tartan 4100)

If you have always admired the appearance, performance and quality of a Tartan, Excalibur may be the boat for you.

Excalibur is a beautiful, very well maintained, freshwater Tartan 4100. This one owner yacht shows like new. She has never been in salt water and has always enjoyed inside winter storage.Excalibur is equipped for comfortable long range cruising and has made many circumnavigations of the Great Lakes. Equipped with solar panels, tank monitoring, screens on all opening ports and hatches, 1000 watt inverter, high output alternator, cold plate refrigeration, custom freezer, Raymarine E-80 navigation system with radar, Vacuflush head, windlass, and generous storage, Excalibur is ready to provide the ultimate cruising experience.

We lived comfortably on Excalibur for 3 months on one cruise. It is possible to anchor for days without the need to run the engine because of the solar panels and inverter. It is easy to host another couple on board or even two if desired. The spacious main salon can accommodate 6-8 for dinner. The ambiance of the boat's interior is classic with rich cherry wood tones and hunter green accents. The storage is so generous that all equipment and provisions can be in closed storage (with great louver doors for ventilation and beauty) and totally out of sight. Scroll down to the Documentation Section and look at the optional equipment detailed on the original invoice and also the additional items detailed in the Selected Equipment Section.

Although Excalibur has been used as a comfortable cruiser, she would be a good performer and very competitive on a race course (we have never raced her). She is equipped with the tall rig, 155% genoa, hydraulic backstay, performance vang and deep beaver tail keel (7' draft). Tim Jackett has stated that this keel allows Excalibur to be 1600 pounds lighter than the standard boat and sail 2 degrees higher to weather. She is a beautifully sailing boat.

In August, 2012 Excalibur successfully passed a complete in and out of the water survey with flying colors. The hull, rudder and decks were found to be completely dry. All systems and electronics work as they should. With the price of a new, similarly equipped Tartan at over $500,000, Excalibur provides an affordable opportunity to move to a Tartan.
