The Tayana 48 is a well-built, spacious, safe, and sea worthy world cruiser. She has extensive upgrades and is equipped to take the new owner anywhere in the world.

The design target for the Tayana 48 was to produce a boat that would outperform the competition in this size range in both boat speed and interior volume. This boat does exactly that. She is a joy to sail, and handles the rough conditions of Hawaii easily. From the moment you step aboard “Easy Day”, you get the feel of how well built she is and how much thought was put into her design. She is set up to sail short handed or even solo with roller furling main, jib, and staysail. She is equipped with a power winch to make sail handling a breeze. All lines are led to the cockpit to ensure the safety of the crew.

Below decks she is very spacious, but still set up with an eye toward functioning well at sea. She has two spacious private staterooms, each with their own queen beds and private full heads with roomy, dedicated showers. The main salon is large and confortable, and the galley very functional. The storage all over the boat is unsurpassed. This boat would make a great live aboard and comes with all household supplies making her ready to move in!

 "Easy Day” has been well cared for and was made to sail the globe. Call today for a private showing.
