1972 Ta Chiao Formosa 45 Ketch Ketch Sailboat in Long Beach, California

Stock #162567

This Beautiful Ketch Rig is a 1972 Ta Chiao Formosa Model. These boats were built in the same shipyards that also built the CT Model of sailboat.

Its hull is reinforced fiberglass with a round bilge and full keel. She was completely rebuilt in 2012, with the purpose in mind to sail Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.

She never made it north. Instead, she cruised the entire coast of California, then made a year-long trip cruising the entire Pacific Coast of Mexico.

She has sleeping quarters for up to 6 adults, with a single head and shower. The Galley is well outfitted with a sink, microwave, Stove/oven combo, and nice sized fridge. The Fridge runs off 12 v/ 110 V and Propane. An on-demand Hot Water heater takes care of dishes and bath night.

Her electronics package consists of Sitex Radar, Garmin GPSMap 440s GPS/Chartplotter, Clipper Wind Speed indicator, Standard Horizon VHF radio and ComNav Autopilot.

All lines run back to the cockpit to actually allow for single handed sailing should the need arise.

The Stern Lounge is a great place to relax under sail or on the hook. And, the bimini isn't just to block out the sun, it's part of a full cockpit enclosure that includes both bug screens and canvas enclosures. So, whether it's the tropics or inclement weather, you're covered.

What a nice boat to cruise the world with.

Information On Condition

The entire vessel was restored in 2012 with new or rebuilt parts. All the finishes and coatings were new as of 2012.

The Perkins 4-107 was completely rebuilt in 2012 and current hours reflect time used since then. It's fresh water cooled and the current owner reports that the engine runs great. With the 3 bladed prop, the fuel burn is estimated around 3/4 GPH.

In 2012, all new tin copper wiring was run throughout, with LED lighting installed and a 3000w Xantrex Inverter.

The Main and Mizzen masts and boom are aluminum, with fold out foot pegs on the main for easy climbing. Chainplates were re-bedded in 2012.

The Bottom was last painted in 2017.

This Ketch appears in really nice condition and ready for new adventures.
