Designed by Scott Kaufmann, Tabasco is an exceptional performance cruising yacht that is intended for short-handed sailing and has shoal draft capabilities, so you'll never be limited by lack of crew or depth. Tabasco has been maintained professionally in top condition since new; she recently spent the winter at Front Street Shipyard in Maine to get a new generator, A/C units, bottom paint with epoxy barrier coat, and much more. Tabasco has been actively cruised, proving her abilities crossing oceans and functioning as a self-sustained cruising home in many of the most exotic places in the world. She is considered one of the finest sailing yachts available on the market today.

TABASCO is a true world-class cruiser. She was designed and built by an extremely experienced racing and cruising yachtsman to be the ultimate performance cruising platform. Her modern fiberglass hull form and powerful rig make her fast on all points of sail. The keel/centerboard configuration maximizes performance, yet gives her the gunk holing abilities of a much smaller yacht.
On the main deck, there are two cockpits. Aft is the helm cockpit with a bimini; forward is the owner's cockpit, well set-up for dining or relaxing. This area leads down to the raised pilothouse. The interior is done beautifully in high gloss teak. There are teak and holly cabin soles throughout. Tobasco is a very warm and airy yacht.
Below decks, the owner and guest staterooms are forward of the raised pilothouse. MASTER STATEROOM with centerline queen is forward, with private ensuite head and stall shower to starboard. A complete entertainment center, including a flat-screen TV, is in the master. Also, there is a double hanging locker to starboard, and desk/vanity, clothes locker, and drawers to port.
Moving aft down the hallway, a full-size SAUNA/SHOWER is to port. Regularly used as a large shower stall, switch on the heating element and enjoy.
Athrwartships the sauna is the GUEST HEAD with a shower to starboard. Equipped with a sink vanity with mirror above and storage below. This head can be accessed throughout the starboard guest stateroom or the walkway.
The port and starboard GUEST STATEROOMS each have a double berth, cupboards, and a hanging locker. All cabins have blackout screens installed, as well as reverse-cycle A/C.
The Entry to port side of engine room is under the stairs up to the pilothouse.
The RAISED PILOTHOUSE is ideal for viewing, dining, or relaxing, and large windows offer outstanding views. L-shaped settee, bookshelf, and entertainment center to port. Wet bar and TV to starboard. Forward is the navigation station and an inside helm station. A large center hatch provides access to the main engine room.
Moving aft and down from the pilothouse is a hallway. To starboard is the CAPTAIN'S CABIN with upper and lower berths. AC and DC breaker panels are to port with washer underneath. Entry to the starboard side engine room is under the stairs to the aft hall.
To port is a large and complete gourmet GALLEY. The galley has a huge counter space with all the amenities one would expect at home. Storage is plentiful and the fridge and freezer are commercial grade. Food can be easily passed up on deck from the galley so you can take full advantage of a nice evening. Fridge and freezer cold plates run off 220V AC commercial compressor and/or engine-driven compressor.
All the way aft is a large DINING SALON with seating for eight. There are pilot berths above and outboard of the dining settee. An aft companionway provides access to the center cockpit. The galley is also accessible from the aft salon.
TABASCO's rig was rebuilt at the Newport Shipyard in 2007:
