Boat Builders in Taiwan

Help, if you can.
I am a new member. This is my first post.
I am from Los Angeles, CA. and arived, yesterday, in Taipei.
I am interested in visitng sailboat building shipyards in Taiwan with the goal of purchasing a 40 to 48 foot sailboat.
I cannnot seem to find the name and address of boat builders in Taiwan.
I will be going to Honk Kong in a few days for the same purpose.
Any names and addresses in these two locations would be much appreciated.
Thank you.

Re: Boat builders in Taiwan

This may be a starting point.

Ta Chiao Bros. Yacht Building Co. Ltd.

Also if you can locate a local Chamber of Commerce they may list any member boat building companies.

Welcome to the forum, and good luck.

Re: Boat builders in Taiwan

No sailboat builders in Hong Kong any more since Cheoy Lee closed more than 10 years ago.

But there are many in the region. From Diesel Ducks by Seahorse Marine to top end carbon race machines from McConaghy in Zhuhai.

What is it you are after?

SEAHORSE MARINE

McConaghy Boats

Thanks so much for your helpful and speedly reply. My goal was to visit shipyards and physically see the construction of sailboats - all for the purpose of buying one in the future and sailing it away. A cruising boat in the mid 40' range is what I had in mind.
Are you a broker or dealer?
Are you in Austrailia? I lived in Alice Springs for 3 years in the 70's.
Thanks again.

I visited Tayana World thanks to you. Very interesting shipyard with competent workmen.
Do you know anyone who purchased a Tayana boat directly from the shipyard?
Thanks for your help.

Re: Boat builders in Taiwan

Hi Henry,

No I'm not a broker, dealer or Australian, just someone who's been living and sailing in the region over the last 15 years.

The Tayanas are a good recommendation and there are a steady stream of them coming through Hong Kong, but as far as I know all through the local dealer (Piercy Marine). By all accounts very good boats.

Re: Boat Builders in Taiwan

Try Ta Shing they build great boats. Maybe only power now. Find a Mason 43 or 44
They last for ever if cared for.

Re: Boat Builders in Taiwan

I dont know if there are near as many as there used to be. Ta Shing would be the premier yard I think, but they are only into BIG boats anymore .

Hi Henry

I had my boat made in the same factory as Tayana's are made

Factory name is Ta Yang , just outside Kaoshiung in southern Taiwan. They are related to Ta Shing yard with some cross directorships

I went directly to them not via an agent

They have genuinely world class skills in hull laying up, interior construction and teak work as well as stainless steel They also do great upholstery

Let me know what you would like to discuss ?

Passports as well as Stevens are built in a yard in Xiamen (about 300 nm north of Hong Kong)

I visited them 4 times before finally choosing the Ta Yang factory

Re: Boat Builders in Taiwan

Yeah, originally they were built by Ta Shing I believe,which is why they were so good. Then they tried a different Chinese yard (early 90's?) and the rep went down a bit for a time. Not sure where they are currently built.
