Best Boats 2012 Nominee: Tartan 4000

With its carbon fiber mast, infused epoxy hull, elegant lines and high-quality workmanship, the Tartan 4000 is a fitting successor to the 4100, which it replaces. The boat’s self-tacking jib and “pocket boom,” which helps gather in the main when it comes time to douse sail, make for a boat that can be easily handled by a couple, or even singlehanded.

LOA: 40ft, 8in
LWL: 36ft, 5in
Beam: 13ft
Displacement: 19,604lb (deep keel)
Sail area: 890sq ft. (main and self-tacking jib)
