Cardinal 46 built by Tania Yachts

Can anyone tell me anything about the hull and deck construction of the Cardinal 46 built by Tania Yachts in the 80's ?
In particular I want to know if the hull was cored throughout or just to waterline, and if there were any hull and deck issues.
Any other info on this yacht would also be appreciated.
Thanks. Martin

Re: Cardinal 46 built by Tania Yachts

I can help. best contact would be the designer Alan Warwick of Warwick Yacht Design in Auckland NZ. The construction is as follows; Garboards 26mm solid GRP, topsides 8mm solid GRP, deck 8mm solid GRP , cabin sides and top 6mm balsa core ( I believe) The hull deck is joined by a solid flange through which is bolted an alloy toerail. Spindrift was launched in February 1997. I have had no hull or deck issues. The yacht is an excellent cruising and ocean going yacht with a very easy motion. She sails well to windward and generally performs well at all points of sail. trust this helps. John/ Spindrift.

Re: Cardinal 46 built by Tania Yachts

S/Y Spendrift has pretty well covered all the bases and I canít add anything to the building specs heís already provided. But I can say that my Warwick Cardinal is one of the best boats Iíve ever sailed, either in the Mediterranean or in S.E. Asia. Spirit is the center cockpit version and can be easily sailed solo. Here are some images of the layout below decks:

Spirit, home

It took me 20 years to find her but the search was well worth the final reward.

Re: Cardinal 46 built by Tania Yachts

I have a Cardinal 46 1983 (before Tania) "Sirena" we have own her for 25 yrs. and it is a fantastic sailboat. We are currently cruising in Mexico and have enjoyed her seaworthiness and sea kindness. This sailboat has won many southern California races including twice first in class in the Newport to Ensenada, Mexico regatta.
We love our boat and hope to cruse her for many years to come.

Re: Cardinal 46 built by Tania Yachts

Hi John,
Scarlet is hauled out for the summer in Santa Eulalia, Ibiza while we enjoy summer in Maine. This fall I think we'll do local cruising maybe ending up for the winter in Menorca.
How are you liking Malta?
Cheers,
Spencer
