The Taswell 43 epitomizes contemporary cruising elegance, offering a unique combination of comfort, seaworthiness and performance. A high performance cruising hull propelled by ample sail power on a manageable staysail cutter rig make the Taswell 43 a joy to sail. The interior layout provides extraordinary space for cruising with a wide salon, full navigation center, proper galley, large aft owner’s cabin with centerline queen berth and ensuite head and stall shower, and spacious guest cabin forward with private head.
Dark Star is a clean Taswell 43. She has been well cared for by her current owner and is well outfitted for cruising in the Northwest or beyond. The Taswell 43 is built to Lloyds specs with an ABS certificate and built by Taiwan’s largest and most respected builder of sailing yachts, Ta Shing Yacht Building Company. This builder is well known for the quality of boats they build and high level of joinery work. The same builder also built boats for Tashiba, Baba, Norseman and Mason lines. Unfortunately, Ta Shing has recently dedicated their entire production to Nordhavn poweryachts and no longer builds sailboats. Like Ta Shing, the seller has changed over to a larger power boat and would like to get Dark Star sold.
