We love our Taswell.
We've lived aboard four - six months each year since building her and taking possession in 2000. (We first saw a one year old 56 Taswell at the Newport Boat Show
The lay out is perfect for us and the forward area accommodates several guests comfortably. The two king sized berths fore and aft are wonderful with good sized separate showers for boat living comfort.
Her weight causes her to ride slower than lighter weighted boats, but she's sturdy and strong and no sissy in higher winds. She handles beautifully. Ooh, riding with a following sea in 18 - 30 knots is invigorating and feels like sledding over snow at high speed. (fun...fun)
We, too, worked with Rich Kahn, and couldn't be happier with his guidance, candor and input throughout our shopping
and ultimate build process.
Every boat is a compromise. Taswell is a capable long term cruising
boat. Our Taswell has never been a disappointment or regret and she's brought us much joy and pleasure.
If I (we) can be of further assistance, please send a private message.
