Offered at an EXTREMELY attractive price this TASHIBA 40 has a two stateroom full teak interior in excellent condition. Her original teak decks have been gone over with seams re-thiokoled and fastening re-set as needed. She has been in storage for 5 years but all systems have been re-activated and tested, engine run briefly etc. Others like her are listed at prices over $60,000 higher.
The TASHIBA 40 sleeps up to seven in a two stateroom layout with a fill varnished teak interior with varnished teak and holly soles. With her nine opening stainless steel ports, four dorade vents, large butterfly and large stainless hatch forward as well as four fixed ports, natural light and ventilation is as good as we ever see. Artificial lighting is equally well thought out with over head lighting in working spaces and swivel style reading lamps at all berth and settees. When the temperatures drop or on a cool foggy morning there is a Force 10 Propane cabin heater that warms the interior. The joiner work is beautifully detailed throughout with radius corners and louvered doors as but two examples.
Starting forward is the private Master Stateroom featuring V-berth with filler below which there is storage in drawers. Above the berth the hull is lined with varnished teak "ceilings" and is fitted with under deck lockers. A cedar lined hanging locker for foul weather gear is aft of the nav station and has a drain.
Next aft to port is the enclosed Head with separate stall shower compartment with seat plumbed to a separate sump. The head is fitted with a gray marble topped vanity with stainless sink and pressure H&C water. There is good storage in lockers and a drawer. The W.C. is a manual type fitted with a Y-valve plumbed to a holding tank with macerator. All new waste system in 2010 and the boat has been laid up for five of the intervening years.
Continuing aft is the Salon with large U-shaped settee to port and straight settee to starboard. There is storage behind the seat backs and in lockers above and outboard. Dining is off of a pedestal table that drops to berth height and filler cushions allow this settee to be used as a generous double berth. There is a bureau and hanging locker forward of the starboard settee and aft is the aft facing navigation station with some electronics. The yachts electrical distribution panels and another locker just aft, which serves as a wet locker, as well as a flip top style chart table.
Further aft and to starboard is the private Aft Stateroom featuring a generous double berth with some storage below while above the berth the hull is lined with teak ceilings and a full length storage shelf. Forward and outboard is a small bureau and full cedar lined hanging locker.
The U-shaped Galley is opposite to port and features copious amounts of storage for galley ware and dry food stuffs in several drawers and lockers, deep double basin stainless steel sink with H&C pressure water, manual fresh and manual salt water faucets mounted in a white laminate counter top. Cooking is handled off the 2004 Force 10 gimballed four burner propane stove with oven. The large well insulated "ice box" is fitted with Sea Frost, engine driven with shore power as well, holding plate refrigeration and is split into a freezer and refrigeration compartment. The Sea Frost system was new in 2007.

This TASHIBA 40 has been laid up since the fall of 2012 with the thought that someday... That day will be for the new owner YOU??? In preparation for selling her the owner has commissioned all systems and tested all that is testable in storage including the fresh water system, engine electronics etc. Because of her now six season long layup in inside heated storage there is far less wear on finishes etc. than one would expect for her age. She has been put on the market to SELL, hence the asking price some $60,000 below sister ships. Yes she will have to have some atrophy shaken off but she still is in excellent value.
WIDE AWAKE has been dozing for the past 6 seasons and is anxious to awaken her new owners to the delightful cruising she can provide. She has been thoroughly gone through by the owner who commissioned and tested all systems so as to assuage buyer concerns. She is an excellent value!
