General Details

"synergy" (sin • er • jee), noun  

"the cooperative interaction among forces that creates an enhanced combined effect"

Herein lies the basic premise of "Synergy"...the Yacht. Undoubtedly the finest TaShing Baba 40' available in the world today. A blue water cruiser, she is currently ready to take on the Oceans of the World and has been commissioned to exceed the expectations of just such a voyage. Her current owners of 17 years are looking forward to having a "seamless" passing of the torch to her new owners.

We have tried to convey each aspect of Synergy in word and picture but nothing will please you more or help you understand the beauty of this yacht better than just stepping aboard and seeing for yourself.

Please allow us the opportunity to introduce you to "Synergy" at your earliest convenience.
