Broker's Comments: The listing broker sold this boat to the current owner 5 years ago. When he bought the boat he was a novice sailor but he was gung ho and willing to learn. He left on his own and single handed this boat over the last 5 years through the Caribbean and Central America. When he came back he was a well seasoned pro. This is a real testament to how well balanced and capable this Bob Perry Design is. Her current owner engineer has kept meticulous records and created an owner's manual for the boat. She is well equipped and equipped to go. Her owner has done what he wanted and would now like to sell her to let someone else live the dream.

From the Manufacturer:
“The Tayana 48 is a superior combination of the advanced design concepts of Robert Perry and the incomparable boat building skills of the craftsmen at Ta Yang Yacht Building Co. Using the finest materials money can buy, Ta Yang puts together a yacht which has it all - speed under sail, safety in any sea condition and comfort found in few yachts of this size.”
Kairos is a great example of this well-designed and well-built, offshore cruising yacht. She has a very comfortable two-cabin, two-head interior layout. Both staterooms offer large berths (queen-sized centerline in master and almost queen-sized Pullman in guest) and en-suite heads with separate shower stalls.
Kairos has received excellent care and maintenance by meticulous owners, as evidenced by the many updates listed throughout the full specs. From the cosmetics, including updated ultra-leather settee upholstery, new cockpit cushion covers and newly varnished teak and holly sole, exterior cap rail, stern seats and teak grab rail, to the updated electronics, mechanical, rigging and sails, you can feel confident that this nice vessel is ready for new cruising adventures.

Decks & Hull
Kairos has a modified fin keel and skeg hung rudder. Her hull is hand laid fiberglass, cored above the waterline, and finished in white gelcoat with a navy blue cove stripe. Her deck is cored fiberglass with light grey molded nonskid surfaces. Her wide side decks are surrounded by double lifelines (new Sept 2011) and a molded bulwark with teak cap rail. The cap rail, stern seats, and teak grab rails are finished bright (stripped and re-varnished Oct. 2015). The stanchions, bow pulpit and stern rails are 1.25 inch stainless steel. There are boarding gates port and starboard.
The center cockpit is well configured for comfort under sail or at anchor with an Edison pedestal and leather covered destroyer wheel. An E-97 hybrid touch chartplotter is above the compass and co-located with the bow thruster joy stick. A newly varnished cockpit table folds flush with the forward end of the pedestal. Winch handle storage is discretely attached to pedestal for quick and convenient retrieval when needed. Raymarine I-70 instruments and autopilot controller is located just above the companionway hatch and the E127 hybrid touch screen chartplotter is located under the dodger on the starboard side.
