Tartan Marine announced the addition of a powerboat line called Legacy by Tartan.
Ohio-based Tartan bought Legacy Yachts in 2010 and announced that the new Legacy 32 will make its debut and be on display at the Newport (R.I.) International Boat Show in September.
During the show, new plans for the Legacy 356 also will be unveiled.
“We have long wanted to service both the sail and power sides of boating and now with Legacy Yachts we will be able to accomplish our goal of diversification,” Tartan Marine CEO Andrew Tasker said in a statement. “The Legacy Yacht designs are beautiful and timeless and will be a perfect complement to our portfolio of yachts.”
Tartan’s existing lines of sailboats include daysailers, racing boats and cruising yachts.
The Legacy by Tartan yachts will be built in Fairport Harbor, Ohio, at the Tartan factory.
“We have an extremely skilled team here at Tartan,”said Chris Duer, vice president of manufacturing operations for Tartan.“We will be able to add Tartan’s cutting-edge technologies and world-renowned craftsmanship to the Legacy Yachts and produce boats that are not only efficient and fun, but are comfortable and stylish as well.”
