Motivated Vendor - Price Reduced August 2018 Built in 2001 at Gamelin shipyard (La Rochelle) and Polypat (Port Bourgenay), 'Tahia' is a solid and fast aluminium monohull, designed to sail against strong winds with safety. Sailing for the Maud Fontenoy Foundation since 2007 and still holding the record of sailing around the world the wrong way, 'Tahia' is ready for new adventures. Owners comments

I really love this boat, marvellous sailing boat which is fast as well as reassuring. I decide, with regrets, to sell her hoping that she will live new adventures maybe more adequate to her fantastic abilities than what we actually do in my Foundation. 'Tahia' can easily be equipped and transformed in a fast and comfortable cruising boat. Maud Fontenoy
