Taswell 43 All Season Raised Salon
Some friends of ours recently decided to put their beautiful Taswell 43 All Season Raised Salon bluewater cruising yacht up for sale by owner here in New Bern, NC. Her name is Onward and hails from Vancouver. We had only come across the Taswell name a few times during our boat search, and never had the opportunity to get aboard one. So, until now, we really had been unfamiliar with the Taswell, but quickly came to love Onward.
Let me tell you, this boat is BEAUTIFUL! It is absolutely immaculate and it is blatantly obvious that it has been maintained by very attentive owners. They invited us aboard for a tour and we shared a couple hours talking “boats” and enjoying the company. Our hosts, Trevor and Jean, offered pictures and stories of their travels aboard Onward in the Mediterranean. We had such a great time being aboard.
I love the layout of Onward. She offers a massive amount of headroom, and the raised salon provides a glorious view outside when entertaining. The Raised Salon is makes this boat a real gem and apparently a rare find. This Taswell also has a HUGE aft master stateroom, and a large forward stateroom. Both Shannon and I were amazed at how roomy she felt, and yet had plenty of handholds for serious offshore cruising. The galley was amidships and there was a navigation station forward and directly astern of the interior helm. Very thoughtful and impressive indeed.
If you find yourself in the market for a beautiful, capable bluewater sailboat, you owe it to yourself to check out Onward.
