"Taz Mania", is a proven bluewater centre-cockpit cruising yacht. This magnificent yacht is sheer luxury above deck and below. She is comprehensively equipped and set up for short-handed bluewater cruising. The main furls into the mast, the headsail is on a furler and all sail management systems are operable from the safety of the cockpit sheltered by a fixed windscreen/dodger, bimini and clear side curtains. The 50 hp Volvo efficiently powers the vessel through the chop. Below deck, in the saloon, the superb Cherrywood fit-out glows with light from the many deck hatches and ports. Integrated air-conditioning further pampers the crew. Aft is the owner's cabin with a walk-around queen-size bed and ensuite. Forward is a private guest cabin. There are two bathrooms.
