42' Tayana 1991 Carpe Diem


A one owner yacht that has been lovingly cared for. Her exquisite teak and mahogany joinery work below decks is a rare find .  The Vancouver 42's are classic ocean yachts well regarded as safe and capable passage makers with excellent tankage ( 120 gallons of fuel and 140 gallons of water).    

The owner travelled to the factory during construction to personally oversee construction and had Carpe Diem built to the owners specifications and  with NO TEAK DECKS from the factory.

Re Powered in 2007 with a 56hp Yanmar Diesel Engine. 

All Exterior Brightwork redone 2018.
