CARINA is a beautiful, professional cared for Taswell 50 with many custom features. She is one of the most customized Taswell 50’s ever built. Her original owner was very involved during the build process making several trips to the Ta Shing Shipyard, one of the world’s finest yacht builders. CARINA’s interior arrangement offers many improvements including a larger navigation center, expanded galley, custom salon with lounge seats and coffee table to starboard and custom facing settees and dining table to port.
The talent and experience of CARINA's designer, Bill Dixon are evident everywhere. Her deck layout and styling, exquisite interior joinery and fast sea kindly hull design. One of my favorite designers Bill Dixon seems to find usable space other designers ignore or overlook. CARINA is no exception! There is extra storage in every cabin, especially the galley, all berths are longer, wider, beautiful matched grain varnished teak woodwork throughout and a teak cabin sole with contrasting inlay. The interior offers living space comparable to much larger yachts. The interior is filled with good light and ventilation throughout. The patented Scheel Keel allows access to many additional harbors and anchorages not usually accessible to 50’ yachts. A Stoway mainmast, electric winches, manual jib and staysail furlers and bow thruster make shorthanded sailing a breeze. Fuel and water capacity have been increased with the addition of custom tanks in the salon and second guest cabin. CARINA is the ultimate cruising yacht for a couple or a crowd, making coastal passages or world-wide passage making.
SHE IS A MUST SEE FOR THE SERIOUS BLUE WATER CRUISER!
