Re: Tayana 48

Which one is the K&L one? Do you mean the CT47/49?

I know one other boat by K&L about the same size and built. It is a Skye 51 (ketch) and she is a dream. Sails well and good built / finish throughout.

I am not sure you can get a new one anymore, so do allow for all the upgrades/mods and replacements if you do mean crossing oceans. This may easily add up 50% on top of what you pay for the boat.

Re: Tayana 48

We have a Tayana 55 and we have friends with a 52 and a 48 and all are very seaworthy and will take care of you in a F9 blow.

It is usually the crew that are the weak link but properly reefed down and balanced those boats will handle 50 knots and 25 ft seas under autopilot.

Re: Tayana 48

Is there anything I should look for on this type of boat.

Re: Tayana 48

Beware of old teak decks!

Ours was lifting and needed removing or relaying...Price estimate in Trinidad was $40,000 we got the work done in Cartagena Columbia for less than $4,000.

If the teak decks are lifting with ridged calking I would not buy the boat unless you know the core is sound and you can get to somewhere cheap to get the deck fixed.
