1982 Tayana Vancouver 42 ft.

Located at a private dock here in SW Florida. She still has a lot of beauty. As these boats were made in Taiwan, they are known for their outstanding woodwork detail down below. I encourage you to do searches on this Tayana to learn more. I am an experienced mariner and a close friend of the family of the deceased owner and have agreed to assist them in selling this beautiful lady. At this price, plus some sweat equity someone could have a boat worth about $150k easily. There are two DIY boatyards within 45 miles radius of where the new owner could haul out and refit this yacht. Both are a towable distance or hip a dinghy alongside.

The main engine has not been started/ran in a long period of time. The boats power engine is a Perkins 4-108 and right next to it is a Westerbeake generator. The genset turns over nicely, but the Perkins may need hauled out and rebuilt. A rebuild kit on EBay is only $800.

Here is a short list of things that I see need to be done,...

  • Isinglass curtains need restocked and zippers replaced on cockpit enclosure
  • All bronze ports need new gaskets
  • Hull hauled...scraped, power washed, sanded, and bottom paint applied.
  • These hulls were not prone to blistering. Hull has been cleaned by a diver recently.
  • Electronics updated
  • Engine worked on
  • Water pumps looked at
  • Fuel line valves replaced in engine room, from gate to ball
  • Rub rails seem to be in good condition

  • All sails are in good to new condition and have been stored with exception of furling headsail
  • Batteries replaced
  • Freon placed in the onboard AC unit as well as the fridge ports cleaned and regasketed. Then someone needs to redo the engine room....replace lube lines, racors elec. Wiring, etc.

    I will add more details to this ad as they become available, as obviously the deceased owner knew all the details. I just thought I would go ahead and throw this out for anyone who has had a wish for an affordable project boat, that will gain value. No terms, elongated payments, checks in the mail scams. I'm aware of them all.

    I've not much time for tire kickers. Do your research, and make an appointment with me to view as I said it is at a private dock and we need to respect their privacy.

    No rehab work permitted at the dock. Someone needs to inspect it to make sure it's for them, then tow it to a boatyard, marina, etc.

  • These boats were built for long range cruising in comfort....very large fridge, and freezer area. Large fuel and water tanks. Extra heavy standing rigging. High freeboard. Large roomy center cockpit with full enclosure. 4 burner stove with large oven. Dinette to seat 4 comfortably. On and on.
