TARA is a rock-solid expedition yacht, easily managed by two crew without the frills of today’s production vessels. Naval architecture was done by Ulf Rogeberg, noted as the original Deerfoot designer; he pioneered the use of a canoe-body shape as the most easily driven hull form. His sailing yacht designs carried relatively short, easily managed rigs yet outperformed larger yachts that required much more sail handling. TARA brings that concept into cruising under power with two relatively small (150 HP) diesels that provide a 9.5-knot cruising speed burning an astonishing 3.5 gallons per hour. At eight knots, TARA can cruise non-stop from the Caribbean to Maine. In the transition to ecologically conscious yachting, TARA is leading the pack.
For a short-handed crew or cruising couple, it is worth noting that TARA easily spins in her own length with a powerful thruster and the rudders sited well aft of the center of effort. Comportment around marina docks is far better than most 70+ foot yachts.
TARA’s interior is bright and open, finished off in Herreshoff style with mahogany trim and white panels, Sisal carpets, large windows and white headliners. Headroom is generous throughout.
The hull and deck are foam-cored fiberglass, molded by a prestigious New England shipyard, one of the finest composite shipyards in the US, painted with Awlgrip. TARA’s superstructure is a custom aluminum weldment that has been left natural. While there is no such thing as a maintenance-free vessel, TARA is very close to that ideal.

Yacht Broker Brian Commette grew up in the boatbuilding town of Bristol, Rhode Island, where his first paying job was, appropriately, in a boatyard. Family sports included sailing and skiing. With his brothers he campaigned a 23-foot keelboat. The family later cruised New England in a larger wooden yawl. While in college, summers were spent working in a local boatyard. Winters gave an opportunity for competitive skiing with some success. By junior year, Brian was nationally ranked in Nordic competition (cross-country skiing and ski jumping). Following college, the career track defaulted back into boatyards and boatyard management.
He learned a competence with all of the trades: mechanical, fiberglass, rigging and electrical. I was an easy transition into yacht brokerage. During his 25 years in yacht brokerage with Northrop & Johnson, Brian has served as both as board member and president of the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA). He has also worked tirelessly with the Certified Professional Yacht Broker program, serving as Chairman and now in the position of counsel. His professionalism and his knowledge of yachts and their systems has proven to be of great value to his loyal clients.
