The sole purpose of such a classic design as the Tayana 42’ is to sail all the oceans of the world and enter the most distant and dreamt of world ports.  In the tradition of the Valiant 40, Pacific Sea Craft 40, Westsail 42,Tashiba and Baba ….all well known offshore sailing yachts, esteemed Yacht Designer Robert Harris, designed into this yacht, a true cutter rig, modified fin keel, skeg hung rudder, offshore safe cockpit and an interior meant for comfortable living, whether at sea or dockside.

He has incorporated into this sturdy double ender, both seaworthiness and ample interior space that offers steady and comfortable cruising.  “KOKOPELLI” is a perfect example of a classic offshore design featuring an Aft Cockpit and incorporating a canoe stern, ALUMINUM SLOTTED TOE RAIL, dorades, opening ports, oversize rigging and quality construction as well as having one of the warmest, roomiest, most comfortable interiors available in a 42’ cruising yacht. 

Built for living aboard and cruising she has a good sized head, teak cabin soles and custom, solid teak staving, along with huge berths and plenty of light and ventilation. Numerous lockers and drawers easily store an abundance of cruising gear. She features GLASS DECKS and is a much coveted STEP DECK VERSION of this classic Tayana 42' and is even more sought after, because of her CLASSIC FORWARD PULLMAN BERTH.

The hull lines are fine, both at entry and exit; the modified fin keel is long and set well aft, providing for a quick, easily driven hull.  There are no hard corners or big flat areas for the sea to hit.  “KOKOPELLI” is a true cutter rig. This design combination readily separates the Tayana 42’ from other traditional yachts and offers ease of handling and lively performance. With her solid fiberglass hull and canoe stern, she is easily sailed by a couple in any cruising weather.

“KOKOPELLI” is a semi-custom built yacht, privately owned never chartered, featuring such noteworthy options as, ALL GLASS DECKS, keel stepped mast, 4-Teak Opening Hatches, 7-Bronze opening ports and 4-framed fixed ports.  

The Tayana 42’ was reviewed by designer Robert H. Perry in his "Sailing Designs" Book, (Port Publications, 1980), even before the first boat came off the production line. It is best described by Bob Perry's original quote, "The concept [of the Vancouver 42] is to provide a yacht, that is particularly suited to long offshore passages with little or no compromising in the direction of the production, an all purpose yacht."  Further, "The Tayana 42 is built by the Ta Yang Yacht Building Company in Taiwan. Ta Yang has the reputation of being one of the most reliable and consistent yards in the orient. With the direction of Mr. Harris, they should produce a good product."

You MUST read the entire listing to fully appreciate this very beautiful and unique Tayana.

IN THE OWNERS WORDS: We bought Kokopelli in late 1994 in Charlestown, SC, trucked her crosscountry to Las Angeles, CA in early 1995. Over the next year plus, we fitted her for cruising and did several shake down trips to Catalina Island. April 1997 we sailed to Mexico where we spent a year. The next year we spent in Costa Rica and Panama, going through the Panama Canal in April 1999. We spent about 2 months in the San Blas Islands before heading east.

Kokopelli brought us to Cartegena, Colombia July 1999. Between Oct and Dec 1999 we traveled from Cartagena to Trinidad; through Aruba, Curacau, Bonaire, Venezuela, and finally into Chagaramas Bay, in Trinidad. Since 2000, Kokopelli has been up and down island many times, stored for 2 hurricane seasons in Puerto Rico, 10 hurricane seasons in English Harbour, Antigua, and 2 hurricane seasons in St Martin. She was re-rigged in St Thomas, repainted in Antigua, had a new mainsail made in St Martin, and the chainplates replaced in St Martin. She's been sailed 6 months every year while in the Carribean, she's not a dockside queen, she is, a PROVEN OCEANGOING THOROUGHBRED!!
