used live aboard

Pretty bombproof and overbuilt as was the design of that era.
Some TY37 boats are now showing up with chainplate base problems due to maintenance errors.

Other: Asian metalurgy is always of ''great question'' and ''wonder'' - original rigging of dubious quality. Many have black iron fuel tanks that rot from the underside if not maintained.

They sail quite well for a full keel design. Lots of owner comments, etc. on Sailnet Tayana eMail archives (use sidebar at left). Sailnet also has a Tayana ftp site: ftp://ftp.sailnet.com/tayana/
