You apparently have several high-quality Tayana 42s to choose from currently, and lucky you because here you've found the one to buy! 

The extensive list of standard Tayana 42 features continue to provide comfortable, safe, and swift passages for their happy owners everywhere, perpetuating buyer interest such as yours!  This proven design will clearly be in demand long into the future.

Meticulous attention to detail is quickly and easily seen aboard courtesy of longtime owners enjoying their passion for cruising while thoughtfully applying a generous maintenance and improvement budget along the way.  Notable improvements to this exceptional cutter are further detailed in Full Specifications and include:

An ingenious combination of 275-amp direct drive alternator, 50 GPH watermaker pump, and a 4.7CFM dive compressor - all from a 2-cyl Yanmar diesel!

Communication and safety features such as AIS transponder/receiver, an ACR EPIRB, and ICOM SSB/HAM radio with Pactor modem

An all-weather cockpit featuring lightweight fiberglass dodger and bimini tops, and full enclosure using Sunbrella and Phifertex screening with clear plastic snap-on rain shields (new 2016)

Continual cabin smiles with (4) dorade boxes/cowl vents, (5) deck prisms (new acrylic 2015), (5) Lewmar hatches (new acrylic/gaskets 2014-2016), (13) stainless opening portlights with screens, (8) Caframo/Hella 12v fans, and (3) Vetus exhaust fans.

Rest is well assured with 73# Rocna primary anchor & 300-feet 3/8" BBB chain, and 66# Lewmar claw anchor & 100'/200' chain/rode.

Recent haul for complete bottom job in 2016 = barrier coats, antifouling coats, zincs = the work is done, time for FUN!

Your ideal Tayana is already conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean!  Now safely tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it!  Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja).  Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do.  Great Yacht, Great Location… GO SAILING!!

Proceed with the peace of mind fostered by a brokerage reputation built on professionalism and integrity.  SYS Brokerage only accepts yacht listings with realistic or bargain prices, listings that our brokers can represent truthfully as being worthwhile.
