We are a cruising couple who wanted a boat that would sail well, look after us at sea and was comfortable and easy to live aboard in all climates. She needed to have easily accessible stowage for everything from bikes to boat bits as well as room for visitors. Tahira (a Maori word for the sun) has fulfilled all our expectations. She is sea-kindly, dry and strong. She sails beautifully with an easily handled sail plan that gives decent passage speeds - coming away from the Spanish coast she sailed herself to windward with clamped wheel for 24 hours and Richard has sailed her single-handed for many miles. Since buying her in 2015 we have re-fitted and maintained her with safety and reliability as the priorities. We are now selling Tahira for health reasons.
