Re: Tavana 33 offshore voyaging capacibilities

Jeff's post makes me wonder how there are any of these boats still floating.

I went back and read my post and I am not seeing this. It might be helpful (perhaps only to me if not for the original poster) if you could explain why you think that my post suggests that the majority these boats are likely to have sunk or to have been otherwise taken out of service.

That was not the impression that I was trying to leave. The point that I was trying to make is that whatever this boat's virtues or liabilities, one thing it is not is a good choice as an offshore cruiser.

Thank you in advance,
Jeff

Good thing, I think it not only would have crashed my computer but my network too






PS: I hope you take this as the good natured ribbing it’s intended to be because you are the best!!!

Re: Tavana 33 offshore voyaging capacibilities

If your budget can extend to a Union Polaris 36, long keel, 5 ft 6 draught, approx 22,000 lb displacement, and you are in to reasonable maintenance (as we all must be on an older boat), you will not go far wrong.
I have owned one for 27 years and would have none other.
