A note from the owner !!

If you are looking for a cruising caravan with a washing machine, microwave and 15 berths, do not read on. This vessel is for sailors ready for adventure.

We have had Tainui for 15 years and she has been well and truly tested during this time, with over 60,000 miles in most oceans including Arctic and Antarctic waters (see our website www//tainui. Org). She was the first foreign-flagged vessel to complete the journey through Russia from the Arctic to the Black Sea. This vessel has never once had us worried (I can't say the reverse is true, though!).

Tainui is a very solid centre cockpit cruising yacht with a long fin keel and skeg-hung rudder. The interior is solid teak. She was built in Taiwan under survey in 1978 for ocean passage-making. Her thick fibreglass hull has never had an osmosis bubble. At 16 tonnes she is of moderately heavy displacement but is certainly no slouch - our best daily runs were around 220 miles and she lopes along comfortably at 7-10 knots all day. Our top speed was a hair-raising 18 knots under bare poles (near Macquarie Island) but we have tried not to repeat that.

Tainui has been continuously upgraded during her 40 year life and is well and truly set up for long distance voyaging. New standing rigging 2010, Ford Lehman engine rebuild a month ago, electrics and electronics (including AIS transmitter, TMQ autopilot and new radar) are all in good condition. New Viking liferaft, safety to Cat 1 standard, 3 heaters, Aries vane, heavy ground tackle. Many sails - 2 spinnakers, 4 staysails, 2 mainsails, 3 Profurl genoas, storm sails, 2 SeaBrakes, etc.

Any problems with this boat? Well, she is ready for interior reupholstery and varnish, the cost of which can be negotiated in the price.
