Just wanted to say my bad on the phone
# listed with the T37 in Honduras, 504 is the country code for Honduras, found the owners email
on a Facebook listing after goggling Tayana 37
for sale Honduras, he sent me some questions that had been asked of him, the owner, and his answers, I asked how the boat is documented but haven't gotten a reply as yet, owner says he and his wife have to get back to the UK, for good, by mid Dec, These are the questions and answers
Is the engine
operational and approximately how old is it?
We assume that the engine
is the same age as the boat. We have no idea
how many hours it has on it. It is reliable and starts first time
every time. (I feel like I'm tempting fate now!!) We haven't done a
lot of motoring because we sail more than we motor
. Our longest motor
was 2 hours when taking the boat down to dry dock
(with no wind). The
previous owner replaced the cylinder head
and we have replaced the
manifold and stainless exhaust
as far as the mixer. The
who replaced the cylinder head
said that there was very
little wear in the cylinders.
What is the state of the bottom. When was it last painted?
She was last hauled and painted 3 years ago. Unfortunately they did
not do a very good job and the antifoul pealed away along the
waterline. But we've managed to keep the bottom clean by diving
above the water
could do with painting, and was on our to-do
list. There is a shipyard here and if you wish to haul out
it can be
Do you have a to-do list for any repairs
or ongoing maintenance
There are currently no house batteries
as we had no need for them. (We
live ashore and the boat is moored in front of our house). We use one
as a 'house battery' and one car battery
starting. We made provision for extra solar panels
on the bimini
top. We had intended to use the flexible flat solar panels
on. We have a new Rutland wind charger
that is not yet installed.
There is an existing post (which has a faulty Whisper charger
The manual fresh water pump

needs attention but the
pressurized system works fine. All other systems are in working order.
window is cloudy and probably will need replacing soon. The
sunbrella is weathered, as well as the sail cover
, but still
functional. We recently restitched all of it. The remaining cockpit
and awnings are in good condition (most of it still new, never
used). The main fuel tank
, situated in the bow, is black iron and has
a small leak. So we have been using 2 x 5 gallon day tanks
which would give approx 20 hours motoring. We planned on installing a
bigger plastic tank because there is space to install it aft.
What condition are the sails
are in fair-to-good condition. We believe that they'll last
for many more years. The sacrificial sunbrella strip on the jib
faded and has some wear but is still functional.
Does she have life jackets and safety
There are life jackets but no safety
Is the boat anchored/on a mooring
or in a marina? If in a marina,
cost? Are marina moorings available? Cost?
The boat is on our private mooring
in front of our cottage in Port
Royal. There are several marinas
here. Fantasy Island Marina and
Brooksy Point are adjacent to the shipyard. Turtlegrass Marina is in
Calabash Bight which is close to us and has the most reasonable rates.
Turtlegrass Marina told me they charge $4 a foot per month. 10% off if
paid a year in advance. The links to the other 2 are
Are there any haul out
facilities in Roatan?
There is a shipyard in Roatan. Details can be found here...

If I fly to Roatan, how long will it take me to get to the boat?
It takes about an hour to get from the airport
to the boat. We can
collect you from the airport
