It’s no accident that the Tanton 44 New Sensation ranks at the top of the list as a seaworthy, practical, ready-for-adventure yacht. In listing, her current owners came up with an 4,600 word manual, complete with photographs, on recent work done and how, explicitly, to run and maintain most of the ship’s system. In the 14 years they owned the boat they replaced all the standing and running rigging, the sails, wiring and electronics for starters. Her original owner, Don Dodds, specified her construction with a plan to write a definitive cruising manual while cruising to the South Pacific and back.

Solidly built in the Ta Chiao Bros. yard in Taiwan, the Tanton is heavily built and remains structurally solid. The anodized rig is more than amply stayed and is on its second set of standing rigging. On deck the bulwarks and braces for the stanchions provide an immediate sense of security.

Ventilation is excellent throughout, with attention paid to air flow in and around lockers throughout. This is one of many “hidden” features that define New Sensation as a true cruiser. Another is the extra hull insulation.

Below decks, New Sensation features the impressive number of drawers and cabinets Taiwan built boats are known for, providing immediate access an enormous amount of storage. As with many “traditional” cruisers, proper storage has been made a priority.

Rigged as a cutter, the powerful sailplan is divided into manageable sections. The modest beam and fin keel/skeg rudder make this one of the original performance cruisers. At about 26,000 lbs designed displacement, the Tanton 44 has modest displacement, and a long waterline of 37.6’. The Tanton 44’s overall sailing characteristics set her apart from traditional full keel cruisers.

New Sensation will be remarkable in any anchorage. From a distance, her gorgeous black paint job attracts a lot of attention. And the closer one looks, the more she stands out.

LPU paint (new 2018)

Standing rigging (new 2007)

Ample tankage (139 gals. fuel, 141 water) for offshore sailing.
