Tayana 42 Center Cockpit

A Tayana 42 cemter cockpit was on my short list in 2000 when I ended up with a 1985 Pearson 422. The teak decks in particular scared me off, but I considered this a good offshore boat. Maybe the 4700 engine hours, tank concerns, together end up in the post-survey price that you can live with. One way to throw the price of a replacement engine (and other major upgrades) in the financing package is to buy the boat with
the replacement engine included in the selling price, with your deposit enough to cover this seller up front cost--you can go on the contract with the boatyard replacing the engine to give the seller security against this higher price transaction. If this is a good boat that just needs a replacement engine for a serious offshore life plan, you have lots of options. good luck! Jack
