48ft in

Designed by Robert Perry and built by Tayana, Rapport is a perfect blend of expertise in cruising sailboat design and construction. The Tayana 48’s fin keel and skeg-hung rudder provide good sailing performance and she is easily sailed by a short-handed crew with her Leisurefurl boom with electric main halyard winch and primary winches. A full cockpit enclosure protects the crew from sun, wind and adverse weather. Below decks, Rapport’s beautiful teak joinery creates a comfortable atmosphere. The three stateroom/two head layout is a fantastic arrangement for a large crew, while still providing excellent accommodations including two separate shower stalls. Storage space is well-configured and ventilation is excellent – fifteen stainless steel opening ports, five deck hatches, dorade vents and Hella fans.

Rapport is extremely well-equipped and ready to continue cruising now. All upgrades by the current owner were undertaken with offshore sailing, sail handling & security at anchor in mind.  The quality of materials and installation are top shelf.  Rapport shows like a much newer boat.  One would be hard pressed to find a nicer Tayana 48 anywhere!

Galley & Interior

Rapport’s comfortable three cabin, two head layout provides excellent private accommodations for two couples with two additional single berths for extended cruising.  Quality materials and superb craftsmanship are evident throughout.  The interior is finished in solid teak and teak veneers with practical use of Corian in the heads and galley.  Cabinet doors are solid teak, radiused and louvered.  Latches are positive pop out pushbutton.  Cabin doors are paneled with solid teak frames and radiused openings.  Louvers in door bottoms maintain air circulation.  The cabin sole is teak and holly and the headliner is white with teak trim. Removable blue carpets with taupe binding cover the cabin sole.  Padding with rubber backing makes these carpets very comfortable in bare feet.  Five Lewmar hatches, fifteen stainless steel opening ports, and five deck vents provide excellent ventilation.  All overhead hatches have wood-framed screens.  All ports are fitted with Peek-A-Boo blinds.  All cabin lights are LED and dome lights have red and white modes.  Courtesy lights illuminate the cabin sole at night with a switch at the companionway.  Ample handholds, countertop fiddles, and hold open door latches will be appreciated underway.

Starting forward is a guest stateroom.  This cabin is entered through a locking privacy door at the end of the forward passageway.  The “V” berth measures 7’ 6” long by 7’ 6” wide aft and 18” wide forward.  The 4” thick foam mattress is upholstered and split on centerline to easily access storage bins below.  Froli STAR mattress spring systems are used beneath the “V” berth, lower bunk, and master stateroom mattresses to improve sleeping comfort and eliminate condensation.  Two lockers are aft on each side, above the berth, beneath the deck edge.  To starboard and aft is a 28” wide hanging locker.  To port and aft is a bureau with three drawer, front opening bin, 15” x 12” open shelf, and cabinet with mirrored door and two shelves.  A cabin fan, two dome lights, two reading lights, two duplex 110V outlets, and large overhead hatch complete this cabin.  Headroom measures 6’ 7” in this cabin.

A bunk room is on the port side of the passageway and entered through a sliding door.  The upper bunk measures 7’ 5” long by 35” wide aft by 23” wide forward.  The lower bunk measures 79” long by 37” wide aft and 24” wide forward.  Two drawers and a top opening bin are below the lower bunk.  A 20” wide hanging locker with 23” x 21” open shelf is aft and inboard.  Headroom measures 6’ 7” in this cabin.  Two dome lights, two reading lights, two double coat hooks, a duplex 110V outlet, two opening ports, an overhead hatch, and a cabin fan complete this cabin.

The forward head is to starboard of the passageway and entered through a locking privacy door.  This space is finished in white fiberglass with teak accent trims; a nice combination of bright easy to clean surfaces with elegant wood trim.  A Dometic electric flush head is forward.  Outboard is a vanity with Corian countertop.  A Grohe faucet and oval-shaped stainless-steel sink is undermounted below a beige-flecked Corian countertop.  Two cabinets with mirrored doors are above the counter.  A stall shower is aft.  A vanished teak seat, shower grate, overboard pump, Grohe mixer, adjustable spray nozzle and hose, and mounting bracket allow one to shower while standing or seated.  A storage locker with shelves is outboard.  Headroom is 6’ 5” in the head and shower stall.  Two dome lights, a 110V GFCI duplex outlet, two opening ports, cowl vent, and ample coat hooks serve this space.

The salon is raised 6” from the forward passageway.  Headroom is generally 6’ 6” in this central living space.  To port is a “J”-shaped dinette.  A varnished teak dining table with inlaid compass rose measures 47” long by 32” wide.  The outboard settee measures 7’ 4” long by 24” wide; a nice sea berth.  Batteries and storage bins are beneath the settee.  Three storage bins are outboard of the port settee back.  Double door cabinets flank divided open bookshelves above the settee back.  To starboard is a straight settee.  The seat bottom slides out making a 7’ 5” long by 34” wide berth.   Front opening bins are below the berth and storage bins are outboard the seat back.  Two double door lockers with shelves are above the settee forward of a 21” flat screen TV (mounted on a hinged frame to access storage behind it).  Two overhead hatches, four fixed ports, a cabin fan, four dome lights, three reading lights, and two 110V duplex outlets complete this salon.

The navigation station is to starboard of the companionway ladder and open to the salon and galley for socializing, yet distinctly set apart when it’s time for work.  The “L” shaped chart table measures 50” long by 26” wide outboard and 32” wide by 20” aft.  A 3” deep chart table is access through three different openings.  Dividers nicely organize this space for tools and paper charts.  A comfortable, upholstered chair swings out on a polished stainless-steel pedestal.  There is ample legroom aft for extended periods of charting and study.  Below the chart table are storage cabinets with shelves; the outboard being very deep and voluminous.  Above the chart table is a wrapping console with navigation, communications, and electrical breakers controls, and monitors.  A 40” wide by 12” deep bookshelf is above the console aft.  Two opening ports, a dome light, flex-arm chart light, 110V duplex outlet, and pencil holder are fitted in this space.

Everyone from haute chef to chief bottle washer will appreciate the large, functional passageway galley which is located to port and down 6” from the salon.  Corian countertops, tall fiddles, toe kicks, and ample light make this space very functional.  Inboard, below the cockpit sole is a 40” wide by 50” long counter.  A double stainless sink measures 13” x 13” x 10” deep and 13” x 7” x 10” deep and is fitted with a Grohe single lever pull-out sprayer faucet.  Contrasting teak/holly covers are form fitted to the sinks.  A top opening 2 cubic foot storage bin is to starboard in the countertop.  A microwave oven is housed in a custom cabinet aft of the sink.  Outboard, below the counter is a narrow bank of four drawers just forward of the stove/oven.  A stainless-steel crash bar is fitted to this oven.  A cover slides up/out over the stove when not in use.  A drawer for pans is below the oven.  The fridge and freezer boxes can open via top or front doors.  These custom boxes are lined with stainless steel, have automatic lights, acrylic shelves, and fitted plastic bins.  Large-capacity storage shelves for galley ware and provisions are outboard below the deck edge behind four louvered sliding doors.  Four opening ports, three dome lights, a teak paper towel holder, and two 110V duplex GFCI outlets complete this galley.  Headroom measures 6’ 3”.

Her hull is hand laid fiberglass cored above the waterline with PVC foam and finished in white gelcoat with a navy blue pin stripe. Her deck is cored fiberglass with smooth surfaces in white gelcoat and gray molded nonskid surfaces. Her wide side decks are surrounded by double lifelines and a molded bulwark with teak cap rail. The cap rail and teak grabrails are bare teak and the cap rail is fitted with stainless rub strips where fenders hang. Stanchions, bow pulpit and pushpit are 1.25 inch diameter stainless steel. There are boarding gates to port and starboard. The center cockpit is well configured for comfort under sail or at anchor. At the aft end is a Whitlock pedestal with leather covered stainless destroyer wheel. A teak cockpit table folds flush against the forward end of the pedestal. A Iverson’s Design canvas dodger and enclosure protect the cockpit. The cockpit seats are overlayed with teak. On the aft deck there is a propane locker to port and a storage locker to starboard. Her open stern platform with teak deck and stainless ladder provides fantastic space to launch and board the dinghy. A fresh water stern shower is available to rinse off after swimming. There are custom stainless dinghy davits and an outboard motor hoist with rail mount.
