Owner's remarks - Cruised around South Coast, very well maintained by myself and professionals when required. Never grounded and a very dry boat. From November to March, sails, covers and interior cushions removed and washed/dry stored and engine winterised as per Volvo manual. Small changes made (3rd reef, No 3 foresail) have greatly enhanced sailing ability in UK waters.
Broker's remarks - Taipan is still in her original ownership and has been well looked after and meticulously maintained. Early viewing is recommended and I challenge you to find a nicer example.
