Broker's Comments

Sturdy and well maintained classic style blue water cruiser, built in Taiwan to American build quality. A typical example with all cruising gear, separate cabins forward and aft with the central saloon converting to another double. Solid and clean looking Volvo engine new in 2001.

The Ta Yang Yacht Building Company built over 150 Tayana V42’s and they have developed a reputation for build strength and long distance cruising ability. She is capable of short handed cruising and has family sized accommodation.
