Classic TaShing Baba 40 Awaits Your Inspection.

"WINDFREE", a TaShing Baba 40, represents one of Bob Perry's finest work. With a very comfortable motion in heavy weather, she is surprisingly quick when it goes light. TaShing is well known for their wood working skill. Her solid teak interior offers many of the features found only in custom builts. Such as, solid teak staving on all bulkheads, louvered locker doors, copper and marble countertops, and a hand laid teak and holly sole.

Her current Owners have been aboard her as full time cruisers for the past 17 years. They have a wealth of sailing knowledge and it has been well spent aboard "WINDFREE". You will find her to be well maintained and ready for her next Caribbean cruise!

Please allow us the opportunity to introduce you to "WINDFREE" at your earliest convenience. Prepare to be impressed!
