If you put "Tayana 65" in the title, people who know about it are more likely to click on this thread.

Re: Buying boats

Big Tayanas are fine boats. I helped fix and fit one out last year. That one was full of old systems and I spent weeks ripping them out and replacing with new and working stuff.

That one did not have in-mast furling and the original genoa furler was hydraulic. It took plenty of work and much swearing to reef her down. Definitely not a retiring couple style in layout and outfit.

I would definitely like one for myself, except I cannot afford a permanent crew.

My 1989 Tayana Vancouver 42 is very well made, well appointed, and fitted with oversized fittings and rigging. We are very happy with her. I have friends with a Tayana 47 who love their boat. (They used to own a Tayana 37.) they are now about a year into a planned 7 years circumnavigation. I don't have any direct experience with a Tayana 65.
