Heavily built, recently refitted and ready to go! "Tai Hoa" has an interesting story to tell and it includes an historic voyage to Ball's Pyramid with young crewman Dick Smith. It was for him "the adventure that set me on the course for a life of adventure. " This unique motorsailer has been bought back to excellent condition over the past seven years, with an extensive list of refurbishment and replacement by an experienced owner. She features a raised saloon with internal helm and a newly enclosed cockpit with a second wheel. Loads of original fittings (bronze stanchions, traditional lights etc) are complemented by the lastest electronics and electrics. Newly-caulked Queensland beech decks sweep forward and the spacious aft deck provides acres of space and access to a dinghy on davits.

"Tai Hoa" was very substantially built in Sydney and is in very sound condition. There is some internal fitout to be completed but all the hard work is done (and most of the money already spent). She's a remarkable vessel, suitable for a wooden boat conoisseur and ideal for long-term liveaboard cruising.
