Designed by Scott Kaufmann, Tabasco is an exceptional performance cruising yacht that is intended for short-handed sailing and has shoal draft capabilities, so you'll never be limited by lack of crew or depth. Tabasco has been maintained professionally in top condition since new; she recently spent the winter at Front Street Shipyard in Maine to get a new generator, A/C units, bottom paint with epoxy barrier coat, and much more. Tabasco has been actively cruised, proving her abilities crossing oceans and functioning as a self-sustained cruising home in many of the most exotic places in the world. She is considered one of the finest sailing yachts available on the market today.

TABASCO is a true world-class cruiser. She was designed and built by an extremely experienced racing and cruising yachtsman to be the ultimate performance cruising platform. Her modern fiberglass hull form and powerful rig make her fast on all points of sail. The keel/centerboard configuration maximizes performance, yet gives her the gunk holing abilities of a much smaller yacht. On the main deck, there are two cockpits. Aft is the helm cockpit with a bimini; forward is the owner's cockpit, well set-up for dining or relaxing. This area leads down to the raised pilothouse. The interior is done beautifully in high gloss teak. There are teak and holly cabin soles throughout. Tobasco is a very warm and airy yacht. Below decks, the owner and guest staterooms are forward of the raised pilothouse. MASTER STATEROOM with centerline queen is forward, with private ensuite head and stall shower to starboard.
