Talisman is simple, comfortable and very usable 8m yacht capable of sailing the world or serving as a liveaboard and bay boat. She offers full headroom in the cabin and accommodation for six, as well as a voluminous cockpit for the crew to relax. The door converts to the cockpit table with drink holders built in.
Maintenance is cheap and easy on a solid fibreglass boat with a recently serviced 8hp extra-longshaft Tohatsu outboard on the transom. The outboard raises on a sled out of the water, eliminating drag when sailing and doing away with the noise and fumes of an inboard. The hull takes on no water into the bilge, and the cost of maintaining a prop and shaft in the water is eliminated. The outboard could be replaced with a 4hp and the boat won't require registration.
Talisman is furnished with a full suite of sails, and will cruise at 5-6 knots under sail or engine. She is a nimble turner and is easy to handle coming alongside a pontoon or tying up to a mooring. All lines run back to the cockpit for easy solo sailing.
Talisman has been a great boat for our family over the last 6 years. We have bought a flybridge cruiser, and my wife says I'm not allowed to have 2 boats.
Talisman comes with a fibreglass tender and oars.
Currently moored at Corinda for $12 per week.
