37m Pendennis ketch by Dubois and Disdale joins market

12 April 2024 • Written by Nick Jeffery

The 37.4-metre blue-water performance ketch Taipan of Wales has joined the market with Mark Van Gelderen of TWW Yachts.

Built in all aluminium, she was designed by Ed Dubois with an interior by Terence Disdale.

Taipan of Wales is asking €3,300,000 and lying in Palma, Spain.

Delivered from UK yard Pendennis in 1991, the British pedigree sailing yacht’s naval architecture is also by the late Ed Dubois. She was originally delivered as La Cattiva for the late Peter de Savary, as he was starting up Pendennis shipyard.

Accommodating eight guests in four cabins, including a vast master cabin aft, the yacht for sale has had a series of refits in recent years, her third and current owner having purchased her in 2006. Her teak decks were replaced in 2015 and substantial works were carried out in 2020.

As well as the master suite, with its private Jacuzzi bath, there are two twin guest cabins and one double/triple cabin, with a fixed upper berth, all positioned aft of the saloon and having en suite bathrooms. Crew quarters for six comprise three cabins, forward.

A spacious deck saloon sports a full navigation station with forward-facing seats enjoying a commanding view through the wrap-around windscreen. This leads down to the open lower saloon featuring a dining area and ample seating. Forward is the galley and laundry, equipped with a range of Miele Professional equipment.

The foredeck boasts a "fast-fill" Jacuzzi pool, for relaxation at anchor, while the cockpit feels secure while at sea with its twin wheels and Bimini top offering protection from the elements, immediately aft of the dedicated guest cockpit. The aft deck is large enough to position a table and deckchairs for al fresco meals, when moored.

Taipan of Wales has a 4,700 nautical mile range under her single 543hp MTU diesel engine, that gives her a top speed of 12.5 knots and cruising speed of 10 knots. The ketch benefits from in-boom Reckmann furling and carbon-fibre spars, newly installed in 2006. Her inventory includes a Williams 565 DieselJet tender and Scubapro dive equipment.

Taipan of Wales is asking €3,300,000 and lying in Palma, Spain.
