Tayana took it to another level once again when they built the 48’ DS. Designed for long range worldwide cruising, the Tayana 48 DS must be at the top of your list! This blue water yacht was designed and built with exceptional quality, and provides all one could ask for, speed under sail, safety in any sea condition and comfort found in few yachts of this size.
The 48 DS is a variation on the company's popular 48-footer. Designer Rob Ladd added a deck saloon and raised the floor structure on Bob Perry's original hull to create a spacious, open interior. Raising the saloon floor not only improved visibility from the cabin, but also opened more space for tankage. The large wrap-around saloon windows keep the living spaces bright, and the headroom is still 7’ with the raised floor. "Enchante" was constructed with Vinylester resins; therefore, she should never have an issue with blisters. Her hull is solid fiberglass from the bottom of the keel up to the waterline. Above the waterline, a core of PVC foam was added for stiffness and that continues to the deck joint.
When stepping aboard you will immediately notice her beauty and the quality of all onboard systems. Entering the large center cockpit that is fully enclosed with custom hardtop dodger you will feel the spaciousness and security she provides. Going thru the companionway and downstairs to the comfortable Salon there is settee with dining table to port and another settee and table to starboard. The navigation station is aft in Salon to starboard and the Galley is aft to port. Continuing aft thru the galley you will enter the master stateroom with queen bed and en-suite head with stall shower. Moving forward from the salon there is a washer/dryer to starboard in the companionway and the Head is located to port. The guest stateroom is forward and has private Head access.
If your dreams lie over the horizon, “ Enchante” is truly a one of a kind very well maintained Tayana 48 DS. She can take you anywhere in absolute safety, luxurious comfort and timeless style. She is a must to see and ready for the change of command.
The Tayana 48 is a solidly built Robert H. Perry design, and the cruising skipper can create an interior layout choosing from a range of options designed around the popular center cockpit configuration. The 40-foot waterline is relatively long to produce good speed, and the boats underwater profile features a long-chord keel of moderate draft and a solid rudder mounted on a large skeg for good tracking and control response. The hull has a moderate reverse transom. All these components together form a contemporary and well-proportioned boat. In winds that ranged from 10-20 knots for the test sail, the cutter rig 48 slid through the short, steep waves easily with a solid, gentle motion. The boat sails well to windward in these conditions, and off the wind it tracks ruler straight. The Tayana 48 DS is a variation on the companys popular 48-footer.
