San Diego, California


55' Tayana 55 '87 "New Horizons"

Ta Yang Yacht Building Co has been dedicated to producing some of the finest and most advanced cruising yachts available and with that spirit in mind, they commissioned the Dutch naval architect, Pieter Beeldsnijder, to design this fast, beautiful 55-footer that could still be easily sailed by two people. He exceeded all sailing expectations and also provided an array of interior layouts not often seen in vessels of this quality. Does the layout suit your needs? Make an appointment to find out!
