Many of our used boats are backed up to a dock on land where you can climb aboard Mediterranean style, and we have boats all over in other marinas as well. We provide all types of sailboats from small trailerables to large blue water vessels. We sell cruisers, racers and daysailors.

32' Tashiba 31
1987 US$ 69,900

Unsurpassed elegant craftsmanship is the hallmark of this amazing blue water cruiser big enough for a small family, yet easy enough to single-hand. Day sail or cross oceans, this quality boat provides her owners with performance, reliability and value. Bob Perry designed this full keel double-ender alongside her larger 36-foot sibling. Often compared to Perry’s Baba 30, the Tashiba 31 is a different design with better hull design comparisons to the Baba 40, which was an evolution from the Valiant 40. I proved to be such a success in terms of performance and manner that Perry to the elements that worked and pushed them further. Perry writes that the “Baba 40 and Tashiba 31 are the best boats he ever designed with modified full keels“. Introduced in 1986, The Ta Shing Yacht Building Co. built 26 hulls through 1988. This boat is hull #22. The mast and standing rigging are fabricated in the U.S. The interior comfort is outstanding with woodwork luxurious enough to be compared to fine furniture. In addition, the storage is incredible with lots of nooks and crannies and lockers to stow all your gear. Offered in 2 or 3 different interior configurations, this version has a U-shaped galley to port, quarter berth to starboard and the private head is located ahead of the main salon on the starboard side. She sleeps 5 in berths that range from 6‘4“ to 6‘6“ long in a cabin with 6‘3“ headroom. This boat is in excellent condition with lots of extra gear to make any sailor happy. She’s been out of the water for 3 seasons, but has been meticuloulsy maintained and with the exception of a few minor needs, she is ready to go.
