From the Manufacturer:
“The Tayana 48 is a superior combination of the advanced design concepts of Robert Perry and the incomparable boat building skills of the craftsmen at Ta Yang Yacht Building Co. Using the finest materials money can buy, Ta Yang puts together a yacht which has it all - speed under sail, safety in any sea condition and comfort found in few yachts of this size.”
Kairos is a great example of this well-designed and well-built, offshore cruising yacht. She has a very comfortable two-cabin, two-head interior layout. Both staterooms offer large berths (queen-sized centerline in master and almost queen-sized Pullman in guest) and en-suite heads with separate shower stalls.
Kairos has received excellent care and maintenance by meticulous owners, as evidenced by the many updates listed throughout the full specs. From the cosmetics, including updated ultra-leather settee upholstery, cockpit cushion covers and teak and holly sole, stern seats and teak grab rail, to the updated electronics, mechanical, rigging and sails, you can feel confident that this nice vessel is ready for new cruising adventures.
