Designed by Robert Perry and launched 1996 Ta Chaio CT 56 "Pangaea", an extraordinary, blue water cruising lady, is now for sale.
Her classic sweeping and romantic design is hard to miss and takes a viewer back to the classic ages of yacht design. Combined with a modern underwater hull shape and keel,
Ultra-modern and sheer luxury fitout, the combination is perfect. On an anchorage she is the most beautiful boat in the bay.
Her presentation is like no other vessel I have seen on offer. Her attentive owners pride themselves in the detail. This boat is kept in as new condition. Completely covered when not use. Every serviceable item serviced or upgraded on a regular basis.
Her inventory is extensive and completely up to date. A detailed list of this and thorough layout description is available on request.
She has been set up for extensive bluewater, short-handed cruising with self-sustainability in mind.
Nothing has been spared on comfort which is most evident in her amazing aft stateroom, galley and vast dining and lounge areas.
Located in Australia currently, she is offered for sale including sales tax and duty but can be bought ex tax for overseas buyers.
