Hardware Design and Manufacturing for Tartan

 

Tartan Yachts is committed to building prestigious yachts that offer distinctive classic sailboat designs, handcrafted interiors, and unmatched performance. Their headquarters is located in Fairport Harbor, Ohio and have been producing the most advanced sailboat build and design technologies available for over 50 years. Tartan needed Occam Technology Group’s help working through new designs for their T4000 sailboat due to issues with their current supplier of fabricated goods. We put together a program that would enable us to become the new supplier for Tartan Yachts.

Occam Technology Group accepted a contract with Tartan Yachts to develop hardware and prototypes for their new design. We were well suited for this project because of our level of experience using powerful design and simulation tools. Our ability to design engineer the parts, in conjunction with our ability to manufacture them, made us an even better candidate. We were a one-stop shop for Tartan Marine, and our resources in both the United States and China only sweetened the deal. Occam’s manufacturing plan involved making products in the US or China based on a combination of factors such as lead time, cost, quality requirements, and control of intellectual property. The new T4000 sailboat was launched to critical acclaim and the hardware that we designed was scrutinized and applauded.
