Tayana 52 Center Cockpit, rare 3 stateroom version, no teak decks
From its inception, the Tayana 52 center cockpit has set a standard for a large, safe, comfortable and manageable offshore passage maker. Since each and every Tayana 52 is built to order, each has unique interior arrangements. Indigo is an exceptional example of just how a well thought out and customized yacht for its size has proven to be a wonderful home afloat, for extended passage making. This yacht has an exceptionally bright interior with 6’10” headroom, has outstanding ventilation with numerous Dorades, ports and well-located hatches throughout the boat. “Indigo” has an incredible amount of storage space to meet the needs of the crews baggage and for ship stores, sails, tools and spares.
Amidships is the main salon with a large ’’U” dining settee to starboard (that seats up to seven) with bookshelves, louvered storage lockers outboard and also under settees and a beautiful drop leaf teak table. To port is a settee with bookshelves, louvered storage lockers outboard. The entire settee hinges up supported by gas springs and has a HUGE storage locker under as well as storage lockers behind the seat back cushion. The settee is long enough for the tallest of crew, can be fitted with a lee cloth and provides an “standby” watch berth for the Captain with full view of the navigation instrument panel. The salon area has three Sunnex high intensity gooseneck halogen reading lamps and all upholstery is beautifully finished in Ultrasuede cushion covers, which are fully machine washable.
The Galley is aft of the main salon and to starboard. The galley walkthrough is wide enough to work in and yet narrow enough so that you cannot be thrown clear across the salon while cooking in rough seas. The classic Tayana walk thru “L” shape configured offshore galley, will delight a gourmet whether at sea or at dockside, with a custom self draining 316 stainless steel counter that has a 1” lip all around and a drain to the bilge. The deep double sink is a seamlessly welded integral part of the counter. No sink lip, no edges, no leaks, no wet cabinets and easy to wipe clean. There is a custom “three position” butcher block cutting board that fits as a sink cover, fits the counter top and the stove top. A wooden dish drainer/rack perfectly fits the SS counter top and drains to the bilge. Outboard are full-length cabinets with sliding teak louvered doors. Below are drawers, storage under the sink, full-length “pantry” cabinet with louvered door, shelves and hanging hooks. There is extensive under counter and overhead lighting. The refrigerator features 4” insulation and two hinged top opening lids into a deep “ice box” with custom removable/washable food service grade Delrin shelves. The icebox is drained overboard with a inline filter and foot pump. The refrigeration unit is a Sea Frost BD 12 volt unit designed to be left running even when the boat is on a mooring, running off the 850AH battery bank sustainably replenished by a wind generator. The stove is a classic Shipmate all stainless LPG three burner stove with oven and broiler. The galley is marvelously positioned next to the companionway for easy serving to guests whether at the salon dinette or the cockpit table. The walkthrough galley features two SS opening ventilation ports, has full 6’8” headroom throughout and into the aft stateroom.
Forward is the chain locker with a teak door. The forward cabin has an extra wide vee berth with a custom coil spring marine mattress, hanging locker, storage cabinets, storage shelf, Hella fan, reading lights, two large forward facing ventilation hatches, storage under the berth for sails and cruising stores.
Indigo incorporates a much sought after starboard crew stateroom with double berth to starboard, hanging locker, storage shelf, Hella fan and reading lights that make this a comfortable offshore cabin.
Directly to port there is a good-sized head, which makes the forward area of the yacht very functional as a separate private cabin area.
Next to port is a proper offshore navigation station/office with chart table, storage shelves and drawer, space for office equipment and a full complement of navigation equipment mounted on hinged panels for full wiring access.
The large nav table/chart desk has a generous storage locker under its hinged top, and space for computer, flat screen monitor, printer, keyboard, mouse, and paper storage. The navigators chair is a custom high back executive swivel chair finished in matching Ultrasuede and mounted on a heavy duty cast aluminum marine swivel base. No wobbly chair this one!
Next aft is the owner’s stateroom. On centerline there is a walk around custom king sized mattress built by Handcraft Mattress. On the aft teak paneled bulkhead are two Sunnex gooseneck, halogen, reading lights and quiet Hella fans. To port and starboard are multiple louvered door lockers, shelves and hanging lockers. The aft stateroom has excellent ventilation provided by two opening, forward facing 24x24” hatches. Two SS dorade wind scoops and a Nicro solar powered ventilator in one of the smoked lexan hatches provides ventilation to the aft cabin to prevent it becoming musty when you’re away from the yacht. On the forward bulkhead of the aft cabin is a full width dressing table with large mirror, drawers, and louvered cabinets. The cabinet’s removable sound insulated floorboard provides fully and easy access to the stuffing box.
To port there is a large owner’s private head with vanity, marble countertop; SS sink with single lever faucet, two mirrors, louvered door storage cabinet, and concealed wastepaper bin. A shower is adjoining the head that has a teak grating floor, a large outboard storage closet and also provides a large sound insulated door for access to the port side and aft of the engine room. The shower room is outfitted with hooks to serve as a hanging wet locker.
The spacious cockpit has teak decking on the seating area, a curved raised helmsman seat, custom fitted C-Cushion gray vinyl coated closed cell foam seat cushions, seat drainage gutters, and teak cockpit sole grating. The cockpit is shielded from the weather by a custom foam cored composite hard dodger with large clear ¼” Lexan vision panels. The dodger is ergonomically designed to allow entry/exit via the companionway ladder without having to crouch. There is ample dry storage area behind the shelter of the hard dodger. There is a large forward facing, opening vision panel, with weather gasket, with SS gas spring supports, hatch latches, provision for opening the hatch to three positions depending on ventilation requirements. The roof of the hard dodger has SS grab rails, non-skid surface and the foam cored sandwich construction will support the weight of two adults if necessary. No more canvas/vinyl dodgers blown out by offshore deck sweeper waves!
