Robert H. Perry, Yacht Designer and his Incredible Cruising Vessels
When you look at all of the cruising boats that actually go somewhere, Bob Perry wins the prize. It may have started with the Valiant, but Bob went on to design so many great bluewater sailing vessels. After great success with the Islander, Perry got hired to design CT yachts built by TaChaio in Tawain. He designed so many boats for Asian builders and they a morphed and blurred to the point where almost every one of them has Robert Perry's name attached. One of the biggest successes was the Tayana 37 first built by Ta Yang. There were over 700 built! Later Bob designed the magnificant Tayana 52. He designed the whole TaShing family of boats from the Baba 30, Norseman 447, Flying Dutchman 35, Baba 40 (Panda 40), Tashiba 40, Tashiba 36, Tashiba 31, all built by the very successful and very very good Ta Shing yard. TaShing went on to built the Taswells 43 and 49, designed by Bill Dixon, based on Perry's Norseman 447. Bob Perry had a hand in almost every Taiwainese-built boat including Choey Lee 35 and LaFitte 44. Then later Perry designed the Passport 40 built at the King Dragon yard. Then the Passport 37 and 47, eventually built by South Coast yard in Taipei. This great builder also built Nordhavn power boats. Robert H. Perry has earned a place in yacht design history with more of his designs "out there" than those of any other designer. We've had the pleasure to sell many many Bob Perry designs and a few of his special custom boats. We love our Bob Perry designs. We know them well. We know the quality and construction of those Taiwan yards. We want to guide you through the maze to find the best of Bob's best. Give us a call.
Traditional Designs In Production
There are quite a few of the great builders still building some of these great designs. Tashing is building great boats today. We love our Bill Crealock Designs. What can you say about the man who designed the Westsail 32 and probably started the whole cruising vision. Over 700 Westsails were built and many of them still voyage far. The ultimate traditional vessel with a full keel and divided sail plan. Bill Crealock went on to become the desiger for Pacific Seacraft Yachts still in production to day. We've owned one Westsail and two Pacific Seacraft vessels. We've sold many. Pacific Seacraft makes some of the very best sailboats available. From the little Dana 24 to the 34 and 37,40 & 44, these vessels offer solid construction and seaworthy design. Carl Alberg deserves recognition as a father of traditional vessels including the Alberg 30 and 35, and Cape Dorys we love which are still built today by Robinhood Marine. We love these boats. We also recognize Bob Johnson for his amazng success with the Island Packets built that the thriving factory in Florida. Let us help you sell your bluewater boat.
