Tayana 42 Center Cockpit

Hi
Im new to this forum and am in process of buying the next boat.

Currently Im negotiating price on a 1984 Tayana 42 Center cockpit that I will live aboard and use for crossing the Gulf of Mexico for winters in Mexico/Belize/Costa Rica. I like the layout below decks reasonably well. Another plus for this boat is that she is one of the T 42 CC''s that was built without teak decks.

The negative points are as follows. She has a Perkins 4-108 with 4700 hours on it. Secondly I do not know anything at all about the designing Naval Architect-Robert Harris. Third- in talking to the broker that sold my last boat for me he has reservations about Tayana quality.

Im trying to find out whether there are endemic problems with Tayanas and particularly with the 42 CC.

Any help or comments would be deeply appreciated.

Warmest Regards
Carr McCormack
