For those that were not able to make it to Annapolis or even Newport to see the brand-spankin' new Tartan 5300, you missed seeing a work of art. She is a beauty and seems to have a lot of fore-thought in a great live-aboard. She's also very pricey at 1.2 million and with the way our mutual funds have been tanking, I guess it'll be awhile before I'll be placing my order. Very Happy
I really did not see too many boat that I would trade for, maybe the Cabo Rico 42, Shannon 43 or the Gozzard 44, but the prices of all new boats really makes our classic T-37 a great value when it comes right down to it. If we are able to buy an "average" T-37 for around 50-60k and put 20k in upgrades, we now have a very capable boat for a fraction of what a new Tartan 3700 or even a 3400 would cost, so keep those classic Tartans up and enjoy sailing knowing you saved big bucks!
Cheers

I too went aboard the 5300, nice boat, one area I did not care for was the galley arangement for a boat of its size, the best galley I saw on a boat of similar size was the Outbound 52. I also dont get why they leave the screw exposed in the sole, but otherwise a nice boat...but at $1,000,000.00 + I wont have to worry about it Chuckle

I'm hoping they bring one to Strictly Sail next year but that's bigger than what they usually have. I'm sure it's excellent. Judging from the 4300 they've really turned a corner in design. The 4300 was the first Tartan that I'd consider trading HighFlight for. Never really liked the layout of the 3700s.
