Description

The Sparkman & Stephens designed Tartan 41 (T-41) - like the Swan 41 - is an almost identical version of the original custom racing sloop commissioned by British PM Sir Edward Heath. Morning Cloud was so successful on the international racing circuit that the designer agreed to put it into production resulting in the T-41 and the Swan 41. The boats had a remarkable impact on ocean racing and were so well built that most, despite being 40+ years, show no structural problems and are still racing and cruising today. 

Tartan, in conjunction with Sparkman & Stephens, produced a number of excellent boats with fine reputations - of them all the T-41 is probably the most elegant and exciting to sail.

Accommodations

Sparkman and Stephens gave the Tartan 41 a classic layout but with an open aft cabin. Entering from the companionway you are standing on the engine box. To port is your L-shaped galley with propane stove, icebox and double deep stainless sinks. To starboard, there is a forward-facing nav area with more than adequate shelving for instruments and books. The chart table is 42” x 24” with chart storage.

The main cabin bulkheads are oiled teak, all other bulkheads are covered with ivory, mat finished, pressure laminate providing traditional contrast with teak bulkheads and trim.

Behind the engine, the aft cabin has built-in bunks port and starboard. The bridge deck gives good headroom. Amidships you have the classic main cabin layout; over under bunks on both sides, outboard and a folding table. In the bow, the forward cabin has built in v-berth bunks. This cabin is wide enough for sail storage. Grab rails in all cabins. Teak ply sole longitudinally with contrasting holly lightly varnished. 

Between the two cabins, the head is to port, drawer and hanging locker to starboard.

Galley

Gimballed Hillrange propane stove and oven. • Propane monitor with bilge blower. • Seven cu. Ft. top loading ice box, teak grating, foam insulated. • Deep double stainless sinks. • Storage under sinks and outboard of ice box and stove. • Needs HW heater.

Deck and Sails

Surrounding the mast and providing an extension to the house is a horseshoe-shaped collar serving as a support pedestal for the halyard winches. The deck is wide on either side of the low-profile house and the flush deck forward provides an open working space for ease of sail handling.

• Edson Pedestal with Ritchie compass • Stainless 28” destroyer wheel • Manual bilge pump in cockpit • Barient No. 32 primaries • Barient No. 26 secondaries • Emergency Tiller • 4 10’ Mooring cleats • 4 Barient halyard winches • Barient main halyard winch • Spinnaker pole • Telescoping whisker pole • Reaching strut • Shaefer traveler • Rod headstay and backstay • Barient mechanical backstay adjuster • Double lifelines • Stanchions are 1” O.D. stainless .083 wall thickness • Anodized “T” shaped genoa track running full length of shear • UK Full Batten Main (nice shape but tired) • New Halsey No1. Kevlar • No. 2 (tired) • No. 3 (tired) • UK Drifter • Tuff Luff foil (no roller furling)

Other Items

The boat could use new sails. The main is tired but has a nice shape and the No. 1 is Kevlar or similar and is in great shape. The rest of headsails are tired except for the drifter. 

The water system (plumping and shower) is in the process of being upgraded and the shore power wiring is being replaced. The deck has a few soft spots but not bad considering the age of the boat.  

The hull and rig are in great condition and in my opinion, are overbuilt compared to "newer" boats of the same size. The Tartan 41's reputation as an ocean racer in all sea conditions is impressive. Nothing beats a good S&S boat when it comes to blue water cruising. 

A partial list of improvements and additional information:

  1. The hull was painted in 2014 using 3 coats of Interlux Epoxy Prime Coat and 4 coats of Interlux Perfection (similar to and the same manufacturer as Allgrip).
  2. Bottom and keel striped and 10 coats of Interprotect 2000 applied (2014).
  3.  Repairs: All winches were removed in 2015 dismantled cleaned and degreased and reassembled. The two bow cleats were replaced with new anodized aluminum cleats and re-bedded and through bolted with new fasteners and with new fiberglass backing plates.
  4. The mast was removed in 2016 and inspected by a professional rigger. Two new halyards were replaced by a professional rigger. New internal coaxial cable for radio was installed inside mast from radio to antenna.
  5. Running lights and spreader light replaced with LED 2015.
  6. New starter battery and house battery 2013.
  7. Engine starter motor rebuilt 2013
  8. Engine raw water pump rebuilt 2016
  9. Exhaust manifold removed and cleaned and repainted and replaced with new gaskets 2015
  10. New Y valve installed between the head and holding tank 2014
  11. New McMaster Carr oversize stainless flanged keel nuts and washer replacements added 2018 and torqued to specs (350 ft-lb.) per Tartan Marine.
  12. Engine gear and throttle shift rebuilt 2014 with new Teleflex cables.
  13. The engine is a Westerbeke 40 installed by the previous owner around 1981. The hour meter has stopped working. The engine runs great and all instruments work except for the hour meter on the tachometer.
  14. The two-bladed max feathering prop was rebuilt in 2013
  15. Cutlass bearing replace 2014 and flax replaced in the stuffing box
  16. Richie compass repaired by factory 2013 and like new. I always take it home in the winter.
  17. Edson pedestal repainted with Interlux Perfection 2015.
  18. The sails are tired except for the No. one and drifter and should be replaced. The Kevlar No. 1 is in great shape, but I usually use the No. 4 which the boat seems to like. The main is an old full batten sail that has a nice shape and has been in several blows where I had to put in a full reef. It performed great, but I would not want to take it offshore. Double grooved fore-stay no roller furling.
  19. The water system and shower are in the processed of being upgraded. 

The boat is extremely fast and goes to weather like the 12-meter Courageous (another S&S design that is similar below the water) with Ted Turner at the helm.
