Looking for a well-found world cruiser? This Tashiba 40 is ready to take you beyond the horizon!
Designed by renowned naval architect, Robert Perry, the Tashiba 40 cutter rigged sailboat with rounded stern and long keel design offers a very stable, fast and powerful sailboat. Under the waterline is a full keel with a cutaway forefoot and as with many of the Perry full keel designs, the keel meets the bilge of the hull without the traditional "wine glass" section blend. The hull shape is beamy offering good interior space. She is beautifully balanced with a wonderful feel at the helm, and what's more, has some of the best interiors to be seen in cruising yachts.
The Tashiba 40's hull is made of hand-laminated, one-piece, heavy-duty fiberglass with optional polyurethane insulation for liveaboard ability. Vinylester resins are used on the exterior for maximum osmotic protection as well as 951 Armorcote gelcoat, formulated to provide outstanding weather resistance. A series of longitudinal and transverse stringers are used to provide maximum hull support. Three coats epoxy with three coats Micron CSC anti-fouling bottom paint. There is a one-piece internal iron cast ballast, bedded with fiberglass and polyester resin, glassed over to reinforce the hull section. The Tashiba 40 also includes a hand-laminated FRP house and deck with end grain balsa sandwich construction. Where deck hardware is through-bolted, it is reinforced with encapsulated marine grade plywood using stainless steel backing plates. The standard model is cutter-rigged and features a varnished teak and spruce cabin sole, a teak interior finished with satin varnish, a double sink in a wrap-around galley, hot and cold pressure water with a shower and two separate double staterooms. Pedestal steering is standard. There are two double staterooms, plus a single quarterberth to starboard.
