Ta Chiao CT35

Hi, I am looking at possibly buying the above yacht a CT 35. Not the pilot house version. I wanted to know how many of the CT35's were built? I get the impression there were quite a few imported into the USA but anyone know or have an idea?

Also any owners do get in touch i will have many more questions I am sure.

Thanks,

Andy

Re: Ta Chiao CT35

From Sailboatdata:

Quote:
The CT 35 was first imported to the US by Seaboard Marine, Inc., then Imperial Yachts of California in 1977, then Annapolis Yacht Shop out of Maryland in 1980. By 1981, Seaboard Marine had returned to sell the last few boats.
Cutter or ketch.
LOA w/bowsprit: 42'.
(total numbers unknown).
A dual station pilot house version seems to be the most common.
CT-35 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

Garden design.. not going to be very spritely!

Not a lot of info on these..

Re: Ta Chiao CT35

Hi Ron, Yes many thanks got all that data too online. I have done a lot of Google searching. Not worried about being spritely but good long keel blue water boat. Only one other concern for me is the ballast as this could be anything from iron to scrap and most likely not lead so SA/Disp is not as good as some similar type boats.

Really need ball ballpark number built as quite important for me to know.

Thanks,

Andy

Re: Ta Chiao CT35

To begin with ballast has zero to do with SA/D. Did you mean B/D? I know that yard very well. I have spent days hanging out there. They would have used iron ballast in one large piece and not "scarp metal". The cast iron "slug" would have been from scrap metal. I woud never call this bat a Garden design. Maybe you could get away with "Garden-esque". It was designed by one of the Chen bothers. I think it was S.T. Chen who did the design work there. I now get the brothers confused. There were four of them, S.T., C.S., C.T. and Wayne. My guess would be that they built around 35 of this model. But that's a guess.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Sailboatdata needs a correction, then.... Actually I thought in profile the pilothouse version looked as much like an Endurance 35 as anything..

Re: Ta Chiao CT35

SA/D of less than 12 means those are barely more than steadying sails. You'd need 1/2 a gale for that boat to move.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Ta Chiao CT35

Thanks everyone, yes Bob, Ba/Disp is what I should have said. On the comment from SloopJonB I wonder if the Sa/Disp is correct on the Saildata page as thai is very low but maybe someone with one of these boats can vouch for the sailing qualities or otherwise.

Thanks again for the input. Andy

Re: Ta Chiao CT35

484' to move 17K Lbs - 11 sounds about right
