This is Kindred Spirit! A Tayana Vancouver 42 sailboat. A genuine blue water cruising beauty. Designed by Bob Harris. Built to an internationally acclaimed standard of construction by Ta-Yang, one of Taiwans top yards. Ruggedly robust, yet graceful. Impeccable teak joinery inside enhances a secure and spacious interior that offers comfortable space for extended live aboard cruising or a weekend with the whole family.
For easy sail handling, all control lines are led to the cockpit winches and an electric winch mate makes tensioning a breeze. Recent upgrades include a Freedom 458 inverter/charger, Garmin 441s chart plotter, ICOM AIS, Air Marine wind generator, all new standing rigging, new Harken genoa furler and new lifelines. Sail inventory includes main, genoa, staysail and spinnaker all in good to excellent condition.
The interior features 63 headroom in the main salon, a generous V-berth, aft cabin, galley with separate refrigerator and freezer, 3-burner stove with oven, double stainless sink, hot/cold pressurized water, electric flush head with separate shower and lots of storage. An expansive drop leaf table in main salon opens up to 6 square. A large salon mirror augments the feeling of comfortable spaciousness. Book shelves on either side of salon and a magazine rack on the forward bulkhead provide lots of space for reading materials. Three large hatches, two smaller hatches and six prisms add to a bright and airy interior. Custom designed settee and thick cushioned cockpit seating enhanced with new colorful cushions offer restful relaxation.
On deck, new double lifelines are 32 high (no stooping). The mast has steps for safer and easier climbing and is flanked by a mast pulpit. The electric up/down windlass is housed in a dedicated hatch eliminating deck obstructions. Five stainless steel cowls funnel fresh air into the cabins. Teak hand rails on deck, a teak and bronze rub rail and teak cockpit trim add touches of elegance. A graceful sheer leads back to a canoe stern. A new dodger and bimini, with side curtains and an aft texiline sun shade complete the cockpit furnishings.
