Taswell 49

49ft in

The world-renowned yacht builder, Ta Shing, has done it again! The dedication that designer Bill Dixon and Ta Shing have to superior build quality and detail produce some of the most sought after blue water cruising boats on the market today. The Taswell 49 does not disappoint. With performance in mind, Endeavor sails well both on and off the wind and has exceptional interior accommodations. She has a spacious main salon, three staterooms and two heads both with separate showers. The satin-varnished interior, vinyl-lined headliner, port lights and deck hatches provide a well-lit, elegant, and inviting space. The center cockpit is safe and secure while passagemaking and beneath it, is the easily accessed engine space. The interior cabinets are cedar lined; many of which have lighting inside. These details prove once again that craftsmanship and attention to detail are second to none.

In 2011, shortly after Endeavor’s current owners purchased her, she underwent a major refit. All systems were gone over with a fine-toothed comb and replaced or repaired. On the mechanical side, a new Cummins Onan 6kW generator was installed and the Yanmar engine pulled from its mounts, inspected and top end rebuilt. The engine room was cleaned and repainted. The shaft was pulled, straightened, and cutlass bearing replaced and new dripless shaft seal installed. The rudder was dropped from the boat for major repair and replacement of the bearings and shaft. On the electrical side, the whole system was inspected, mapped and re-worked. New Magnum inverter was installed, along with new house batteries and wiring throughout the boat. The bonding system and shore power were gone through and a new galvanic isolator installed and many thru hulls replaced. Other items in the refit include the Webasto diesel heater, hot water heater, Spectra watermaker, AIS transponder and two solar panels to take you on any journey you desire.

Tastefully finished with a teak interior and a teak and holly sole and cedar lined cabinets Endeavor lives up to the top-notch construction standards of the Ta Shing boat yard. Her moderate freeboard, raised cabintop, and center cockpit layout allow for ample storage space and comfortable seating for several guests in the main salon. She has three cabins to accommodate six crew and two heads both with separate showers. Many overhead hatches deliver lots of airflow and exceptional natural light. The courtesy lights, and teak handholds in the main salon provide a clear path when underway or at night.

Starting forward, the V-berth cabin features a bed comfortable for two people and copious storage. There is one hanging storage locker, one cabinet with shelves and eight sliding drawers. Outboard on the hull are open shelves and above are two Lewmar deck hatches with both shades and screens. The two dorade vents provide ventilation when opening the hatches isn’t an option, for offshore cruising. At the forward end of the berth is a hatch providing access to the chain locker.

Aft and to starboard of the forward stateroom is the forward head with separate shower stall. A door from the main salon or from the forward cabin will access the head. The toilet is athwart ships at the forward end of the head and aft is the shower stall with a smoked acrylic hinged door. There is a single stainless sink with single lever faucet and below is a large storage locker. Outboard along the hull is storage, accessible through three sliding doors and forward is an additional locker. The separate shower stall has its own storage locker along the hull side large enough for several towels and soaps. The shower mixer is a single lever with a hose and wand on the forward bulkhead. There is a molded seat with teak trim below the storage on the outboard side and a teak grate covers the shower sump.

Opposite the head to port is the bunk room. There are two over under bunks along the hull side; both with reading lights. Outboard on the top bunk is an opening port and one overhead deck hatch with shade and screens. At the aft end of the cabin, there is a bureau with four drawers and a bulkhead mounted mirror. Forward, there is a tall, vented hanging locker.

The large main salon is next aft and centered in the boat and has an astounding 6’4” of headroom. The starboard side of the salon has a curved settee with reading lights above and storage below and outboard. The port side has a long C-shaped leather dinette surrounding and table. There is an additional bench seat on centerline with storage bins below. The forward bulkhead is home to a flatscreen TV concealed by a hinged box and painting. Above the settee and outboard is shelving and large storage cabinets.

Aft of the main salon on the starboard side is Endeavor’s large, secure, U-shaped galley. Along the hull above the easy to clean Corian countertops is a massive amount of storage accessed via three sliding doors. Below the countertops forward are four drawers and a large cabinet for storing pots and pans. The Force-10 four burner stove and oven is aft and fitted with a hood and extraction fan. A small, hinged compartment below the oven is perfect for sheet pans and pots. Along the inboard side of the galley is a double basin stainless sink with single lever faucet and manual salt and freshwater taps. At the aft end of the galley is the top and front-loading fridge/freezer with open storage shelves above.

Just aft of the main salon to port, in the aft passageway, is a forward-facing nav station. All communication/navigation can be completed here and the AC/DC breaker panel is inboard on the companionway bulkhead, accessible behind an hinged acrylic door for safety. There is storage below the lift top chart table and outboard shelves.

Aft of the nav station, through the passageway, is the owner’s stateroom with en-suite head. There is a large centerline walkaround berth. On the port side forward are two large cedar lined hanging lockers and four drawers. Centerline, at the forward end of the stateroom is a desk with a swing out stool, bulkhead mounted mirror, and a small amount of storage in the flip up countertop and more in the three drawers to the right. On the starboard side is a leather bench seat with a reading light overhead. The overhead deck hatch and port lights provide a generous amount of light and ventilation to the space.

Forward and to starboard side of the stateroom is the head with separate shower stall. One enters first into the head and then at the forward end is the shower stall. The head has a manual flush Raritan toilet, stainless sink with single lever faucet and crisp off white countertops. A plexi glass door forward separates the shower stall from the rest of the head. In the shower you will find a large storage locker fit against the hull, a molded seat with teak trim and teak grate over the shower sump.

Deck & Hull

Endeavors hull is coated in white gel coat with double painted cove stripe and double boot stripe both in blue. She currently has red ablative bottom paint that was applied in 2018. Her underbody is comprised of a deep fin keel drafting 6’11” and a skeg hung rudder. Her deep draft provides great stability for blue water cruising and her rudder bearings were replaced in the significant refit done by the current owners in 2011.

On deck, Endeavor is laid out for easy sail handling and safety. She has many stainless grab rails and wide teak side decks. The double lifelines are carried fore and aft via stainless pulpit, stanchions and pushpit and provide security when transiting up to the bow or stern. There are boarding gates on both port and starboard sides with an additional one aft at the pushpit for access to the swim platform. Near the stern there are two recessed large lockers to port and starboard that provide clutter free, easily accessible on deck storage.

The comfortable center cockpit compliments the interior layout with style. The teak cockpit seating is relatively protected out of the elements by the dodger and bimini with optional full canvas enclosure. There is a removable teak grate on the sole and Edson steering pedestal with cockpit table. Two self-tailing Lewmar 58 electric primary winches allow for easy sail adjustments by a shorthanded crew.
