The Tayana 52 is a truly stunning sailing yacht. Few yachts will exhibit her symmetry or her head-turning beauty.

Starting forward is a single large Guest Stateroom with a queen centerline V-berth, a step to the berth, eight storage lockers, a large hanging locker, 4 large drawers and 6 deep under-bed storage bins. Behind the mirrored forward bulkhead, stand the deck sail and anchor lockers. Given the rare two stateroom custom layout, this is a huge and comfortable Guest Suite with an en-suite sit down makeup/office desk to port, a spacious and well-ventilated bathroom to starboard, and storage lockers in the huge 2 person shower with a teak bench.
  • The plush Master Stateroom is aft and has a walk-around king centerline berth with a new, extra firm custom mattress as in the guest cabin, both covered in removable custom sunbrella covers (2004). A lovely aft mirror covered bulkhead sets to the lazarette. White leather-like vinyl covered settee sets to starboard and was designed to coordinate with the other fabrics throughout the boat.
  • Copious storage is provided with a grand hanging locker, four standard storage lockers, 8 lockers below berth, 3 lockers below settee, and 9 drawers accompanied by a mirrored dressing table with enclosed TV and storage lockers above. The en-suite Master Head a true enclosed stall shower and a large storage locker. This wonderful master stateroom is truly inviting and comfortable for the ships master and 1st mate/Admiral

Located aft of the guest quarters, features a settee to port with an enclosed TV/VCR and 3 cabinets. Opposite is a U-Shaped Settee with a large custom dining salon table seating six to eight. The settees are covered in white, leather-like high quality vinyl with button accents, and are replete with large contrasting pillows. Storage cabinets line the walls and are set beneath and behind the settees. Floor panels open throughout the boat for additional storage and easy access to tankage. New custom designer curtains run throughout the yacht, and crystal deck prism lights keep the spacious Hershoff white wall salon and galley uniquely well-lit, bright and cheerful among Tayanas. A precious Fred Macatanz print entitled, “Spring Fever,” of Polar Bears decorates the main salon wall.

The Elegant Galley is located to port off of the salon, and is well thought out for entertaining at anchor or cooking safely underway. It has abundant locker and drawer space, a deep double bowl sink, as well as a pantry/cook's locker. The countertops are white and brand new. Very roomy refrigerator and freezer are both loading and convertible to front loading. The range/oven and microwave are new and well-fit to this yacht.
