Additional Equipment


The Vitus bow thruster makes docking easy, and you always look like a pro when backing the boat into a slip. 
The Autoprop gives excellent control and efficient motoring, while reduced drag under sail.  The prop is self pitching giving an optimum pitch at every rpm, and the blades rotate to provide full thrust in reverse.
2 independent air conditioning heat pumps cool the aft cabin and the rest of the boat.
At anchor, you can run the gen-set (8kw) which permits both of the air conditioning heat pumps to be run with the microwave and still have lots of power leftover for hairdryers, coffee machines, battery chargers, etc. 
There are four house bank and 2 starting group 31XT lifeline AGM batteries connected to a Linksys battery control system that integrates the inverter and charger.
Tarantella is fast, with a PHRF (speed rating) of about 105, getting you from port to port quickly and able to outrun unexpected storms. 
She is comfortable at sea, having a Brewer Comfort Ratio of well over 30 with the Sheal keel and center cockpit (extremely seaworthy and comfortable with rough seas). 
We typically get 0.75 gals/hr cruising fuel consumption typically at 7-8 knots which are very efficient, and with 2008 75 HP engine Yanmar diesel connected to the ultra-efficient Autoprop, we can get through any seas or headwinds. The Yanmar has 2100 hr and the sensor displays are in the cockpit
The arch on the stern is great for holding three powerful solar panels and permits easy access to the dinghy on the stern. The arch also holds our satellite weather antenna which connects directly to the chart plotter with continuous weather overlays on the screen, It also holds a local weather station.
The hull is solid 17 layer layup with vinyl ester, the premier hull material used today, which is stable and has no blister possibility. The hull is over an inch thick and is insulated to keep it warm in winter and cool in summer.
The deck does NOT have a teak surface, making it leak-free and easy to clean. The teak toe rail has a sealer that is easy to maintain and does not chip or fade, and may never need to be refinished.
I have not found a boat at multiple Annapolis, Chicago, or Newport RI boat shows that I like as well for single-handing and comfort for 1 or 2 couples.  Having a Lloyds of London ocean cruising vessel is great for safety offshore, even if you don't want to sail to Europe.

Galley Equipment

Every inch of space in this incredible galley has been designed to provide more workspace and storage than in many land-based, home kitchens. Custom cabinets, drawers, and lockers make it easy to store provisions for extended cruising. A deck prism over the stove and multiple LED bar lights and overhead lights offer great lighting. Two large opening hatches numerous opening port-lights ventilate the entire galley area.

The dual custom Sea Frost refrigerator and freezer uses state of the art digital microprocessors for independent control of the refrigerator and freezer. The system has both air and water cooling for excellent continuous operation at anchor or sea, using only the power from the solar panels. For example, you can indefinitely keep ice cream on a mooring in 90degrees F without running the gen set or engine

Accommodations

This beautiful Taswell 43 center cockpit Cutter Rig sailboat features with two private separate cabins, plus a settee berth.  Headroom is typically over 6 and a half ft throughout the boat and storage capacity is incredible. The Full Sunbrella/Strata-Glass enclosure gives comfortable year-round sailing. Beautiful, first-class woodwork all professionally refurbished (2019). The floor is teak and holly varnished to a high gloss.

The stern arch holds the dinghy, three powerful solar panels and weather antennas, and declutters the stern sugar scoop for easy access at sea.

All sail control lines and sheets lead to the cockpit. The electric winch handle makes all sail handling.

The centrally located galley provides minimum rocking at sea. The four-burner, gimballed force ten stove with oven and broiler is adjacent to a convent prep area. The front and top-loading refrigerator and huge deep freezer run by two new digital computer-controlled Sea Frost DC systems. They can keep ice cream and food stock frozen indefinitely at anchor with the high power solar panels on the stern arch, unattended.

Two zoned heat pumps provide independent air conditioning in the owner's suite and the main cabin.
