This extraordinary Tayana 52 center cockpit cutter was custom built in 1991 for it’s present owner to accommodate his needs for extensive cruising. It was commissioned in Taiwan and in a four year journey sailed through the Philipines, to the Mallacca strait and Thailand, crossed the Indian Ocean to Sri Lanka and southern India, sailed into the Red Sea (during the gulf war) crossed the Suez Canal and reached the Mediterranean on to Alexandria. Sailed through the Agean, traversed the Bosforus onto de the Black sea, went through the Corinthian channel, Corfu, then Italy, Sicily, Malta, the north of Africa, the French Riviera, the Spanish Costa Brava; crossed the Atlantic on to Florida, Cuba, the Yucatan peninsula, Colombia, then crossed the Panama Canal on to the Pacific and headed toward it’s final and present destination: Acapulco Mexico. In spite of having many friends joining in this journey the long hard passages were managed only by the owner and one crew. This was possible due to the stable and reliable way the boat performs. That journey comprised multiple legs on which it’s owner had many different friends an guests, so his object when custom building the boat was to find a design that could afford privacy and comfort for his guests. A special layout was set to attain this, it features: A spacious mid ship salon with a generous fully equipped galley with plenty storage space. In the bow two cabins: a wide double forecastle cabin, and a double berth to starboard, and two separate heads. Starboard and aft of the main salon is the navigation station, and in the passageway you can find large storage areas, a table for working on large charts or on equipment maintenance issues. In the aft there are two cabins: the owner’s one, air conditioned, with it’s own private head and full size independent shower stall, and to starboard a small cabin with two bunks, that when not used to accommodate guests is perfect for storing sails, extra diving gear etc. The engine room is located below the center cockpit and is readily accessible from all sides. Servicing the engine and generator is an easy task. The stern of the boat is also custom built following the design of the Tayana 55 to provide a step and boarding ladder.
