47' Formosa 47 '81 "Shawada"
The Formosa 47 is a wonderful design that combines the classic lines of a traditional cruising boat with a modern fin keel, skeg rudder underbody. Whether you dream of sailing the seven seas, or you are looking for the ultimate in liveaboard comfort, this beautiful boat will make your dreams come true.
All the way forward there is a chain locker followed by a great sail locker with deck access via the foredeck hatch. Next aft is the spacious forward head with sink, manual head, and shower. The head compartment is very well ventilated with opening ports and a skylight hatch.
Next aft is the wonderful full-width guest stateroom with a double bunk, seating and plentiful storage on starboard, beautiful teak cabinetry and a writing desk on port.
Through a doorway and up a step is the magnificent raised main cabin salon. The main cabin has a teak table with L-shaped seating on starboard with storage cabinets outboard. Across on the port side there is another long settee with more storage above and below. There are several opening ports, an overhead hatch and nice forward-looking windows for great ventilation, light and views.
To starboard of the companionway and down one step is a well laid-out galley with stainless sink, 3-burner stove with oven, a microwave, and a built in refrigerator/freezer.
The walkthrough to the aft cabin is to port of the main companionway. Here you will find a good navigation desk with a swing-out chair and a workbench area with plenty of storage. There is excellent access to the engine room on the other side of the passageway.
The aft-cabin master stateroom is one of the finest ever seen on a boat of this size. Spanning the entire width of the boat, there is magnificent teak carpentry throughout, with plenty of storage in closets and drawers. The big double berth sweeps across the stern with wonderful transom windows to enjoy the water views. The master cabin has its own private head with a separate stall shower with shower seat.
