To start making your cruising dreams come true, please schedule an appointment to see this well kept, low hour, exceptionally well priced Ta Shing Taswell 49 today.



When you step aboard Possible Dream you know in an instant, this yacht is s a cut above most cruising boats on the brokerage market. Her clean design, handsome lines, fine gel coat and her excellent appointments on deck provide a great first impression.

The interior joiner work is pure TaShing, unsurpassed in attention to detail, quality materials and craftsmanship. Check out the fit and finish of the drawers and the sole openings; you will find they fit as perfectly as when she was new, a fine testament to both builder and owner care. Exposed interior hullsides are spruce battened and the overhead is a soft vinyl headliner (just installed in 2013) that can easitly be removed for ready access to wiring and deck hardware. Ultra-suede upholstery contrasts nicely with her beautiful teak & holly sole.
