The original Tartan 41 (1972 - 1976) was a flush deck
design, not ideally suited top cruising.
The T41 is not to be confused with the T40/412 series from the 80's, nor the newer T4100 (both cruiser-friendly).
In which model are you interested?
Personally, I’m not fond of the “fat hump-backed" Euro-styling characteristic of the Jeanneaus, including the 42.
