$500,000 price cut on explorer yacht Tasman
by Malcolm MacLean
The 26.21 metre motor yacht Tasman, listed for sale at Ocean Independence, has just had a $500,000 price reduction.
Built in cold moulded wood by the Carey yard in Picton, New Zealand, and launched in 2007, Tasman was designed by Richard McBride of McBride Design. Built to survey standard, the full-displacement hull and stabilisers have proven to offer comfortable seakeeping whatever conditions the weather might bring.
A timeless, traditional interior accommodates nine guests in four cabins consisting of a full-beam owner’s suite, VIP suite, double and twin, all with entertainment centres, television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
Since her launch in 2007, she has travelled extensively throughout New Zealand, the Australian East Coast, the South Pacific, US East Coast, Bahamas and Turks & Caicos. Her light coloured wall panelling and neutral carpets fill the interior with light. The main saloon has a tranquil, beach house atmosphere while deck spaces are extensive, including a generous flybridge with U-shaped seating to port and starboard sheltered by a Bimini top.
This yacht for sale has been designed for extended passage making and, powered by two Yanmar 330hp diesel engines, Tasman’s fuel economy is outstanding with a combined average consumption of 45.6 litres per hour and a range of 2,800 nautical miles.
On display at this week’s Newport Yacht Show, Tasman is now asking $3,350,000.
