Why Tayana and why THIS Tayana?

Since 1973, the Ta Yang Yard on the southwestern shore of Taiwan has produced over 1400 blue water cruising yachts from 37’ to 72’ that continuously cross the oceans of the world.  Production of the 58 Deck Salon began in 2000 and continues as a currently offered model today.  She represents a perfect balance between form and function.  This particular copy, hull #00, was delivered new and custom designed to her current owner in the summer of 2003.  She has logged thousands of ocean miles and is truly the definition of a blue water cruiser.  She’s big, heavy, fast, and powerful.  At the same time, she’s completely rigged for short-handed sailing by a cruising couple.  She’s so smartly designed and configured, she can be single handed with ease.

This particular boat is in just magnificent shape and thoroughly outfitted for blue water passage making.  Her thoughtful owners have kept Nana Maria in top shape, updated and ready to go at all times.  I can't express strongly enough how great it is to purchase a yacht from the original owners who designed her, oversaw her construction, visited the build yard in Asia regularly, and know this yacht so thoroughly from bow to stern.  It adds incredible value to know the ENTIRE history of a yacht of this quality and sopphistication..

She’s ready to take her next owners on more incredible journeys around the oceans of the world.  

Please take some time and enjoy this listing for this magnificent yacht.  In addition to the many photos we've posted to Yachtworld, we've got HUNDREDS (439 so far!) more pics at davetownleyyachts.

ENJOY!

A note from Lemac Marine about Tayana Yachts

The original creator of the Tayana 37 (T-37) was Bob Berg, former owner of Flying Dutchman Yachts in Seattle. He took his preliminary ideas to Bob Perry, who then did the final design. Those of you who have heard of the BaBa should know that was Bob Berg's nickname in the Chinese yard where he oversaw the construction of the early Tayana's.

According to Nan San Chiu, first Sales Manager of the building yard, TaYang means "big ocean" in Chinese. When an "a" is substituted for the last letter of a word, it denotes the possessive sense. Thus Tayana means "belongs to the big ocean."

Tayana Yachts have been considered the leader in building custom interiors for the last two decades, offering it's clients the luxury of a living arrangement they prefer rather than having to settle for the compromise of a production boat. Using the finest in solid exotic woods the best equipment such as Lewmar, Whitlock, Yanmar engines and Seldan Spars to name but a few, Ta Yang has achieved the reputation for building one of the finest semi-custom blue water cruising yachts in the world.

"Our aim is to create outstanding styling, live aboard comfort and safety at sea for every proud Tayana owner."

From Lemac Marine about the Tayana 58

Imagine a serious cruising yacht, at an achievable price, custom built by hand, around a proven and well-respected ocean-going hull, with a fit-out and rig perfectly suited to your requirements.

Now step below deck; everything from the exotic solid wood finish to the air conditioning is just as you would have it! The comfort, the space, the stability, the quality of craftsmanship & the attention to detail make Tayana yachts an ocean ahead of those on the production line, whilst bridging the gap for what most of us would call an impossible dream.

Tayana Yachts brings your ultimate aspiration into reality with their range of customized, ocean cruising yachts from 37' to 72'.

Skipper’s Note

We’ve had the most incredible adventures on Nana Maria.  The journey that brought us together is one of our fondest life experiences.  Every yacht we’ve owned in the past involved some level of compromise.  Too little storage, too tight sleeping quarters, or a good but not great galley – they all were satisfying but ultimately just had too many design flaws.  It was time for the ‘right’ boat.  We knew the path to success would mean starting with a completely blank canvas.  After pondering many high-end brands, we found the Ta Yang built Tayana 58 was the perfect foundation from which to start our next adventure.

We found the design team at Ta Yang in Taiwan a joy to work with.  From the outset, they understood our needs and found innovative ways to incorporate our ideas into the design.  The craftsmanship produced by the artisans in this yard is astounding. A great yacht however isn’t just beautiful and functional – it’s also smart.  By smart we mean that systems are all integrated, intelligently installed, and SEVICEABLE!  No matter how big a yacht gets, systems still need regular maintenance and upgrades.  We’re pleased to report that our efforts and careful planning paid off handsomely.

After several trips to the southern coast of Taiwan to oversee and tweak the design, we took delivery of Nana Maria at the Baltimore, Maryland seaport in July of 2003.  Her commissioning was here in Annapolis and we got busy sailing.

After some shake down cruises, it was time to hit some blue water.  We were very fortunate to have the time to embark on some incredible voyages:

  • Nov 2004 -- Caribbean 1500 to Virgin Islands/St.Marten
  • May 2005 -- Atlantic Cup Virgin Gorda to Bermuda then on to Virgina/Maryland
  • Nov 2005 -- Caribbean 1500 to Virgin Islands/ St. Marten/Bonnaire
  • Feb 2006 -- St. Marteen/St. Barts/ Antigua/St. Thomas
  • May 2006 -- St. Thomas To East Coast USA
  • May 2007 -- Bahamas to Hampton, Virginia
  • Nov 2008 -- Caribbean 1500 to Virgin Islands
  • May 2009 -- Atlantic Cup Virgin Islands/Bermuda/ Hampton, Virginia

As you may surmise from our list of adventures and her low engine hours, we SAILED Nana Maria every moment we could.  She was our home from 2003 to 2009 and she took extraordinary care of us through the many storms that only the Atlantic can toss at you.   No matter what Mother Nature tossed our way, we were dry, safe, and completely comfortable.  The feeling you get in the middle of the ocean when it’s just you, the weather, the sea, and your boat, is completely heaven sent. J

There were many little things we did to Nana Maria to enhance our comfort.  Our oversized spade anchor for instance allowed us to sleep soundly on the hook even when the wind kicked up and once in particular during a Cat.1 Hurricane that came through the Virgin Islands.  Her sleek lines, bold red hull, and go fast look brought many compliments and inquiries as to what kind of she vessel she was.  Some of our favorite times were spent hosting Thanksgiving dinners aboard in the islands, often a potluck affair for the many friends we met doing our Caribbean 1500 rallies. We did manage to have 35 people aboard on one occasion and they all fit!  St. Marteen was always a special place for us and we went there often -- awesome food and wine!  We even had custom bins made to hold an abundance of special vintage wines in the bilge.  Over the years we accumulated a never-ending list of special destinations that will always be near and dear to our hearts.

For us, the ocean is a place full of mystery, awe-inspiring creatures and, when angered, she can be quite harsh.  We’re proud to say we never had a moment of concern during our years with this wonderful yacht, no matter how far we were from shore.  One of our favorite experiences was stargazing while hundreds of miles from land on one of those crystal clear nights when you just can’t quite tell where the distant horizon touched the starry sky.  Mesmerizing!

Where would we go next if we were to keep her?  We’ve spent little time on the southern US coast so we would like to take her to Florida and the Bahamas.  We would also have planned to head back to the Caribbean and then west to Panama and through the Canal to the Pacific.  We’d love to visit Costa Rica, the Sea of Cortez and ultimately Vancouver Island, Canada, near our home.

We sincerely hope Nana Maria’s next owners experience the joy that we have over the last ten years.  She’ll take you anywhere you want to go with grace and a lot of style.

We have taken a RIDICULOUS number of pics of this yacht!  439 so far.  We'd love to email you these HIGH RESOLUTION photos.  You can also see them at:

DAVE'S RATING

When I travel with clients FAR out of town for yachts, I don't like surprises when I get there. It's embarrassing for me and can make for an expensive trip. With that in mind, I'd like to share my rating of various systems on the boat so you'll be as informed as possible before you come for a visit. My rating system is on a 1-10 scale with 10 being 'perfect' (in MY opinion). Please view this list as a GUIDE only. Everyone's idea of good and bad can vary quite a bit. My goal in doing this is to help you reach a comfort level with the boat before you invest time and energy to come and see it. I'll summarize by saying that this appears to be an excellent yacht worthy of serious consideration.

Beyond telling you what’s great about a yacht, don’t you also want to know what it needs next?  Every yacht, no matter how turn-key, needs something.  Every owner has next year’s list of ‘to-do’s, right?  I’ll also include in this section what I think the boat could use to take her from nearly perfect to perfect and ready to go.

Overall Rating: 9.5/10

Incredibly well maintained and thoughtfully updated, the hull both above and below the waterline is pristine.  The decks are in superb shape and the teak looks fantastic.  The overall layout of the boat, both above and below decks, is really well configured for long range cruising as well as living aboard.

Exterior: 9.5/10

Having cruised extensively myself, I’m looking for several ‘zones’ of success in a blue water cruising yacht.  The most important space is the cockpit and on deck because that’s where I plan to spend the most time.   The cockpit on Nana Maria is large, deep, and comfortable.  The coamings are tall and angled for good bracing while healed.  Passage into and out of the cockpit to the decks or down below is easy even in rough seas.  The hatch opening to spaces below is large enough that when you and crew are both above and below decks, you’re well within sight and earshot of each other at all times.  For entertaining, guests can be both in and out of the boat and still feel together.  EVERYTHING you need to handle to manage the boat underway is right at your fingertips or just a step or two away -- critical characteristics for offshore heavy air sailing.  Once you leave the cockpit, the decks are HUGE and the teak planking is in great shape.  There is easy access to every part of the rig, a nice storage area forward of the mast for the dinghy and life raft, and lots of great places to lounge with a cocktail in hand.

  • Awesome cockpit with great seating and bracing while healed
  • Easy access to sail handling gear when solo sailing
  • Wide teak decks with great access to rig and systems on deck
  • Exterior canvas all pristine
  • Swim platform is like a staircase to the water when needed – perfect angle and easy to navigate
  • Electric winches, mainsail furling

Interior: 10/10

You have to step aboard a Tayana to appreciate the incredible craftsmanship from the artisans at the Ta Yang Yacht Yard.  The joinery is simply phenomenal.  The interior upholstery is gorgeous as well and in fantastic shape.  This is a big boat and feels like it as you pass through interior spaces.  That said, there’s no place you can be where there isn’t something substantial to grab hold of while moving around in rough seas.  The galley is one of the best I’ve encountered.  There’s lots of space around the sink area, on both sides of the range.  There’s lots of fridge/freezer space AND there’s plenty of room for two chefs to work in the galley at the same time – very rare on a yacht!

  • Gorgeous teak joinery below decks
  • Inviting salon

Electronics/Electrical Systems: 9.0/10

The electronics on this boat are top-of-the-line and cover nearly all the bases.  They’re original to the boat so mid-2000’s vintage.  They do EVERYTHING you need except for AIS which has only recently become popular with cruisers.  Fortunately, AIS is an easy add on to this system at minimal expense (about $1K for receive only, $2K for send/receive).  Electronics are an interesting subject for discussion.  While it would certainly be fun to drop new electronics in a yacht every year (they come up with new stuff about as fast as Nike invents new golf clubs every few months), is that prudent?  It’s my opinion that the only thing you’d gain by swapping out the electronics is slightly brighter screens and maybe touch screen capability.  My point is that the quality of this gear is so high, it’s not time for years to come to upgrade.  It just doesn’t make economic sense for the few goodies you’d get with new gear.  By the way, the Raymarine ‘jumbo-tron’ in the cockpit is heavenly.  Displays radar, chart plotting, movies, ANYTHING!  All easily visible from the helm.

The electrics on this boat are incredible.  Brilliantly laid out.  Wire chases through the boat, though busy due to all the systems, are completely accessible.  The drawings that came with this boat are well crafted and super helpful when servicing systems.  Plenty of battery power.  Updates needed?  I would definitely add either wind power, solar power or both.  I personally would opt for a couple of wind machines on wide stern but there’s probably a way to incorporate some solar panels as well if needed.  This would cut down on engine/genset time as well.

  • Top quality Raymarine radar/chart plotting
  • Computer driven chart plotting also adds another layer of information/safety to the cruising experience
  • There are (6) 8D NEW batteries for the house bank along with a 4D battery for the windlass and a starting battery – plenty of power
  • Things I would add?  AIS, probably both send and receive
  • I think the boat needs some more power generation in the form of wind machines or solar panels

Engine Room: 9.5/10 (visual inspection only)

Love this engine room!  It’s really a ROOM!  The Yanmar is easily accessed as is the Northern Lights genset, the water maker, the Racor fuel filters, the oil change system and This engine is in beautiful shape.  Regularly serviced with low hours (1715), it’s a Yanmar!   I just started it after a winter/spring of it being winterized and it just fired right up without even cranking.

  • An actual engine ROOM
  • Easy access to all sides of the Yanmar and necessary parts of the Northern Lights genset
  • Little to no corrosion on the engine, mounts, and accessory equipment
  • Systems are beautifully laid out throughout the space with clearly identified wire and plumbing runs.
  • I’d like to see a fuel polishing system.  It would be easy and inexpensive to add.

Galley/Head Systems: 9.5/10

I’m a chef and this is chef’s galley for sure.  Great counter space.  High quality appliances.  Fantastic fridge and freezer space. Storage compartments and spaces are thoughtfully laid out for maximum efficiency. I like that the galley is out of the way of passage through the yacht. The chef does not impede traffic flow through the boat.  There’s room for two in the galley if necessary as well for companion cooking.  Heads are more like bathrooms with lots of space, stand-alone showers, good storage, and high quality toilets.

  • Tons of counter space
  • High-end appliances
  • Huge (new) Frigoboat fridge and freezer
  • Spacious heads with new fresh water macerating toilets
  • All new hoses 2012

Rig & Sails: 9.0/10

Sails in excellent condition and should have many years of life left.   Rig is turn-key.  With the push button mainsail furling, you have an infinite number of reef points.  The genoa and staysail are both reefable so between the three sails, you can set the boat for ANY point of sail or wind condition.  She’s a big boat and doesn’t get pushed around very easily.  There’s safety and comfort when you have 49,500 pounds of yacht under you, regardless of sea conditions.


WHY FOR SALE?

It's simply time for a life change for Nana Maria's owners.  They've had an incredible collection of journeys with her, from original conception, to trips to Asia to oversee and fine tune the design during the year long build process, to all their Atlantic Ocean adventures.

TAYANA YACHT -- BUILDER NOTES & REVIEWS

The Tayana 58 is designed by the Dutch Naval Architect and designer Pieter Beeldsnijder. The hull is one of the most durable, versatile, safest and best performing hulls in its class. The wide beam easily accommodates a three or four-cabin layout, and few if any yachts of its size can carry its standard three-cabin layout with a full standup engine room and workbench so effortlessly. The Tayana 58 can be easily handled by a cruising couple by incorporating modern sailing technologies. The deck saloon provides light, air, visibility, and protection. Extra large tankage for both fuel and water is another gained feature of the raised sole in the deck saloon.

In this yacht, typical of any Tayana, every time you pull up a floorboard, there are clearly marked systems, thru-hulls, wire chases, plumbing runs, all logically installed and easy to service.

Why Tayana and why THIS Tayana?

Since 1973, the Ta Yang Yard on the southwestern shore of Taiwan has produced over 1400 blue water cruising yachts from 37’ to 72’ that continuously cross the oceans of the world.  Production of the 58 Deck Salon began in 2000 and continues as a currently offered model today.  She represents a perfect balance between form and function.  This particular copy, hull #00, was delivered new and custom designed to her current owner in the summer of 2003.  She has logged thousands of ocean miles and is truly the definition of a blue water cruiser.  She’s big, heavy, fast, and powerful.  At the same time, she’s completely rigged for short-handed sailing by a cruising couple.  She’s so smartly designed and configured, she can be single handed with ease.

This particular boat is in just magnificent shape and thoroughly outfitted for blue water passage making.  Her thoughtful owners have kept Nana Maria in top shape, updated and ready to go at all times.

She’s ready to take her next owners on more incredible journeys around the oceans of the world.

A note from Lemac Marine about Tayana Yachts

The original creator of the Tayana 37 (T-37) was Bob Berg, former owner of Flying Dutchman Yachts in Seattle. He took his preliminary ideas to Bob Perry, who then did the final design. Those of you who have heard of the BaBa should know that was Bob Berg's nickname in the Chinese yard where he oversaw the construction of the early Tayana's.

According to Nan San Chiu, first Sales Manager of the building yard, TaYang means "big ocean" in Chinese. When an "a" is substituted for the last letter of a word, it denotes the possessive sense. Thus Tayana means "belongs to the big ocean."

Tayana Yachts have been considered the leader in building custom interiors for the last two decades, offering it's clients the luxury of a living arrangement they prefer rather than having to settle for the compromise of a production boat. Using the finest in solid exotic woods the best equipment such as Lewmar, Whitlock, Yanmar engines and Seldan Spars to name but a few, Ta Yang has achieved the reputation for building one of the finest semi-custom blue water cruising yachts in the world.

"Our aim is to create outstanding styling, live aboard comfort and safety at sea for every proud Tayana owner."

CAPTAIN'S NOTE

I think it's important to know how a yacht has been used by her current owners.  I asked Mark & Janel to give me some insight into where Nana Maria has been, what works, what doesn't work -- just a summary of the journey from the beginning.  I think it's SO worthwhile to come across a one-owner yacht.  So you know the history of this boat from birth to now:

We’ve had the most incredible adventures on our Nana Maria.  The journey that brought us together is one of our fondest life experiences.  Every yacht we’ve owned in the past involved some level of compromise.  Too little storage, too tight sleeping quarters, or a good but not great galley – they all were satisfying but ultimately just had too many design flaws.  It was time for the ‘right’ boat.  We knew the path to success would mean starting with a completely blank canvas.  After pondering many high-end brands, we found the Ta Yang built Tayana 58 was the perfect foundation from which to start our next adventure.

We found the design team at Ta Yang in Taiwan a joy to work with.  From the outset, they understood our needs and found innovative ways to incorporate our ideas into the design.  The craftsmanship produced by the artisans in this yard is astounding. A great yacht however isn’t just beautiful and functional – it’s also smart.  By smart we mean that systems are all integrated, intelligently installed, and SEVICEABLE!  No matter how big a yacht gets, systems still need regular maintenance and upgrades.  We’re pleased to report that our efforts and careful planning paid off handsomely.

After several trips to the southern coast of Taiwan to oversee and tweak the design, we took delivery of Nana Maria at the Baltimore, Maryland seaport in July of 2003.  Her commissioning was here in Annapolis and we got busy sailing.

After some shake down cruises, it was time to hit some blue water.  We were very fortunate to have the time to embark on some incredible voyages:

  • Nov 2004 -- Caribbean 1500 to Virgin Islands/St.Marten
  • May 2005 -- Atlantic Cup Virgin Gorda to Bermuda then on to Virgina/Maryland
  • Nov 2005 -- Caribbean 1500 to Virgin Islands/ St. Marten/Bonnaire
  • Feb 2006 -- St. Marteen/St. Barts/ Antigua/St. Thomas
  • May 2006 -- St. Thomas To East Coast USA
  • May 2007 -- Bahamas to Hampton, Virginia
  • Nov 2008 -- Caribbean 1500 to Virgin Islands
  • May 2009 -- Atlantic Cup Virgin Islands/Bermuda/ Hampton, Virginia

As you may surmise from our list of adventures and her low engine hours, we SAILED Nana Maria every moment we could.  She was our home from 2003 to 2009 and she took extraordinary care of us through the many storms that only the Atlantic can toss at you.   No matter what Mother Nature tossed our way, we were dry, safe, and completely comfortable.  The feeling you get in the middle of the ocean when it’s just you, the weather, the sea, and your boat, is completely heaven sent. J

There were many little things we did to Nana Maria to enhance our comfort.  Our oversized spade anchor for instance allowed us to sleep soundly on the hook even when the wind kicked up and once in particular during a Cat.1 Hurricane that came through the Virgin Islands.  Her sleek lines, bold red hull, and go fast look brought many compliments and inquiries as to what kind of she vessel she was.  Some of our favorite times were spent hosting Thanksgiving dinners aboard in the islands, often a potluck affair for the many friends we met doing our Caribbean 1500 rallies. We did manage to have 35 people aboard on one occasion and they all fit!  St. Marteen was always a special place for us and we went there often -- awesome food and wine!  We even had custom bins made to hold an abundance of special vintage wines in the bilge.  Over the years we accumulated a never-ending list of special destinations that will always be near and dear to our hearts.

For us, the ocean is a place full of mystery, awe-inspiring creatures and, when angered, she can be quite harsh.  We’re proud to say we never had a moment of concern during our years with this wonderful yacht, no matter how far we were from shore.  One of our favorite experiences was stargazing while hundreds of miles from land on one of those crystal clear nights when you just can’t quite tell where the distant horizon touched the starry sky.  Mesmerizing!

Where would we go next if we were to keep her?  We’ve spent little time on the southern US coast so we would like to take her to Florida and the Bahamas.  We would also have planned to head back to the Caribbean and then west to Panama and through the Canal to the Pacific.  We’d love to visit Costa Rica, the Sea of Cortez and ultimately Vancouver Island, Canada, near our home.

We sincerely hope Nana Maria’s next owners experience the joy that we have over the last ten years.  She’ll take you anywhere you want to go with grace and a lot of style.
