Broker's Comments

The Tayana 55 needs no introduction to cruising sailors she is a well built, safe, center cockpit sailing boat with around 65 of them having been built since 1983. This example, with her modified forward cabin, would make spacious and comfortable cruising home for 2 couples, she has been the beneficiary of many recent upgrades
( including new paint, new upholstery, re varnished and new teak decks etc ) The current owners of 18 years have now finished their cruising and are moving ashore, Boatshed Phuket are proud to have been selected to offer her for sale.
These boat details are subject to contract.
