Cam -- they did make a Tayana 55 Schooner, and there are both aft and center cockpit versions of the 55.

The schooner version is a stunning boat.. one on YW here: http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listi...oat_id=1671372

Also there are three keel options available, the shallowest is a centerboard with 5'3" draft.. So a centerboard schooner would be just the thing for the ICW.. Maybe someone somewhere ordered that config!

Hope that helps a bit.
Cam, aren't you going to help the guy and give him a link (RWYS) to a nice 52? I could do it, but I figure that's your business....

He knows about my boat Pam...thanks anyway for the thought!

Paul...interesting...I had not heard or seen either the schooner or centerboard version! I wonder why the pricing is so relatively low? Maybe the lack of the Perry name?

This schooner has 10 entries on YW all under different brokers.. So maybe they are a real motivated seller. It's listed lower with a US broker: http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listi...oat_id=1700142

Lack of the Perry name hasn't quelled my interest, though looking at Beeljsnijder sail portfolio he has credits for the interior design but not the naval archecture of nearly all the vessels in his porfolio. Maybe the 55 was an evolutionary hull design on the 52, and it was mostly cosmetic from the waterline up? Kind of like the new 55/58 CC/DS/PH versions..

The centerboard version gets you to a 9'10" draft, I'd expect that would help you point quite nicely but I wish I could find some real technical data on this. That and really any other performance data. I've found one base PHRF rating for a T-55 at 54 (NE PHRF)

There's more info on that schooner at http://www.tayana55.com/ ... if it had three cabins I'd be all over it! And we haven't crossed Cam's baby off the list... the boat we're looking at just happens to be about 5 minutes from where we'll be this weekend...

That's seriously a lot of boat for $275k . . . the deal even includes a 9' sailing dinghy:



Where do I sign?

It said the owner just finished a US$500k refit... I'd love to know the list of stuff. I love the concept of the boat though... four furlers, electric operation from the cockpit... staysail... very nicely done. The kids would love it too since it comes with both the sailing dinghy and the Caribe center console RIB with a 40HP. Can you say tubing? I also like the way they did the salon/galley/nav station setup with the additional settee midships. The amount of storage looks excellent. If they only had a 3rd cabin!!! For the price, I'd buy it and put another $300k of refit (if necessary) and still be ahead of where we were planning!

I've done something wrong in life if I couldn't figure a way to make a deal like that work . . . at least for a few years anyway. But as Cam pointed out, an '83 Taiwan boat - refit or not, will require a sizable maintenance/operating budget in the cruising kitty.

If this is obtainable, most here I'm sure, are envious you're able to do this with a still young family. Wishing you good luck in your endeavor.
