Baba and Tayana 37 fans

I have done a new Blog entry where I write chapter one of the history of the Baba's, This goes back to include the Hans Christian 36 and 34, Tayana 37 and even some Valiant history.

I try to write these entries in a way that will give you information that you can;pt get from anyone else. I don;lt always get history correct but when I have a memory gap I make something up that sounds about right and makes me look good.

Re: Baba and Tayana 37 fans

Great article Bob.

I do not think my 4 kids would fit on the TY37. I'm sure your consulting fee could help figure out which boat would be the solution for that.

But do you also cover convincing my wife that we should sell the house (which we just bought and haven't moved into yet) and go live on a boat? We will also need to get all our friends and cousins to move to the coast. It's only like 45 minutes away...

Oh well.

Re: Baba and Tayana 37 fans

Well, some of us probably first learned about those sailboats in those very thick books.
Encyclopedia, or not sure how is this called, spelled now days in different languages.

Yes, encyclopedia is the correct word.

Re: Baba and Tayana 37 fans

Part two of the Baba blog is up and running. I had some fun memories writing this one. I hope you find it entertaining and informative.

Re: Baba and Tayana 37 fans

I'll take a closer look at the Baba line. They look like really nice boats.

Re: Baba and Tayana 37 fans

Bob - here's a question for you. I've always been curious as to the type of people that actually obtained one of these amazing bluewater boats. After all, even in the 70s/80s there were production builders of mass market boats like Catalina, Hunter, Irwin, Morgan...etc. Then there were the Valiants, Babas, Pacific Seacrafts too.

So, in terms of relative affordability...what did a boat like a Baba 40 run for in the days it was first released? I recently inquired about a Norstar 40 and the sailaway price was near $500k. Half-way to a millionaire to afford a good bluewater Perry design brand new!!!! Was it that way in the 70s/80s? Or was it more in reach of the everyman?

Love your thoughts on this!
