The Fantail Series is the first new model development by Jackett Yacht Design and Development for Tartan Yachts. The Fantail Series is available in three configurations; The DS (Daysailor), WE (Weekender), and the ST (Sail Trainer). All three feature classic good looks, “sit in” not “sit on” sailing, efficient high performance and a “green” sailing experience.
The hull form is a contemporary shape without extremes, designed to deliver predictable and rewarding performance. She has a fine entry forward with plenty of hull volume in the topsides to properly balance the full aft sections. Through her mid body the sections are vee'd for a sea kindly motion.Running aft the sections are broad and flat for great stability and off the wind performance.
