Launched in 1991, the Tayana 55 'Porcus Palpor' is now exclusively for sale with YOTI South East Queensland.
The Tayana 55 is designed by the Dutch Naval Architect and designer Pieter Beeldsnijder, who is recognized throughout the world as a premier designer. The Tayana 55 is designed and built for serious cruising and are often considered the equivalent of Passport, Oyster or Hylas yachts. The hull is one of the most durable, versatile, safest and best performing hulls in its class. The wide 4.9 metre beam of T55 easily accommodates a three cabin layout; and few if any yachts of its size can carry its standard three cabin layout with a full stand up engine room and workbench so effortlessly.
