"Reposado" as she is called, is a sailing yacht that is a lion in sheep’s clothing. Sailors always say, cutaway forefoot and a rounded rear, she must be from an age of older and much slower designs. Not true for I speak from experience. I remember some 30 plus years ago, while pulling up anchor, outside the breakwater of Port Townsend, Washington, on a typical Puget Sound stormy winter day. It was a day of a heavy overcast, blowing like stink, out of the south at about 20 with a good sea running. Anchored next to me, was a TaShing Baba 40 doing the same. I was on my Norseman 447 at that time which is also a Perry design and TaShing built yacht. We decided to sail and “race” back to Shilshole, where we both came from. All the way back to port, for some 30 miles, the lion in sheep’s clothing sailed powerfully, pointing high, sailing straight, stiff, and tracking like a freight train; playing a game of catch me, for every boat nearby sailing is called a race.  We arrived back at our slips, at the same time, laughing at the fun which we both had. 

TaShing builds boats as good as the best that the USA and the World has to offer, bar none. The woodwork on them is flawless, the stainless perfect, the glasswork is the quality of artwork. They are as beautiful as they come, if its form, fit and function. When looking at the small things on her, like all screw heads facing the same direction, and all the grains of wood run as one, the fiberglass is like a mirror, the bilges are painted, the drawers and cabinets finished perfectly. I can go on for hours on the quality of Reposado, but do yourself a favor, come inspect her for yourself so that you can admire and enjoy the sheer beauty of her. You’ll own her after you do.

She’s a true cutter rig, easy to power up and power down if needed. She makes single handed sailing a breeze. The deck layout all makes easy safe sailing, where her side decks are wide and navigable. She offers stainless cockpit rails to her side boarding gates and her 32 inch stanchions offer complete security and safety. Winch and deck layout makes any sailor feel comfortable. 

The interior makes spending time or fulltime living aboard, a dream come true. When stepping below, one gets a feeling of solidness, of light, of style, of the feeling that everything is as new as can get. If it's her flawless woodwork that even has the areas under the bunks and draws finished in satin teak, this boat is beautiful. The galley has storage galore, the cabinets can store whatever one needs, the counter tops and galley arrangement is ever so workable. The interior has a flow to her, that works. The aft stateroom is one that you can actually get dressed in and has a berth that is a bed, a bed that one doesn't need to bend and ache to get into or out of. There are drawers and cabinets everywhere and a big closet to hang your blue blazer and the Mrs' evening dress. The salon area offers the owners and guests an inviting feeling of comfort and warmth. The navigation and communications area is a proper one. In other words, it all works as it should.

Forward to port is the bathroom, offering a stall shower and a washbasin/toilet area that equals a land-based bathroom. It's bright, airy and clean. Still further forward is the forward stateroom, with a closet that one can hide in, drawers, stainless ports, built in hatches, and wonderful comfortable bed. Reposado is a wonderful, turn-key, go now, and comfortable safe liveaboard voyager.

Reposado’s owners replaced all chain plates, all standing rigging is new. She has new Garmin electronics, consisting of HD radar, chart plotter, below deck autopilot and wind/speed/depth. She has a powerful electric windlass and the proper ground tackle to keep her in place when needed. Mechanically, her Yanmar is clean, low hour and fully functional. Her sails are “lightly’ used, she has great canvas, and her exterior wood is in its natural state. Her side decks are teak covered and are in above average condition, with many, many more years left on them.

Reposado Owners, who cared for her with love and money, lots of money, need and want her sold. Please give me a call to talk boats and dreams and if Reposado is in your stars; for if she is, she’ll guide you safely, swiftly, and comfortably to wherever you find joy and peace. She brings all of this in a sound and slid and very beautiful package. She’s a rare offering in a sailing world of lots of plastic. As the old saying goes, “they don’t build um like they used to", for she is aging like a beautiful woman, if it's Lauren Hutton, Jane Fonda or Raquel Welch. We should all have those genes. 

Reposado is the real deal. Bring offers for all sensible ones will be presented and considered.
