“Starting in 1986 with the Taswell 43, over 100 Taswells were built in different sizes-43, 44, 49, 50, 56, 58, 60, and 72. These gorgeous cruising sailboats are highly famous for their invaluable craftsmanship and incredible circumnavigation. In 1988 Ta Shing introduced the first vessel in our line of modern and highly technical but elegant Taswell series. Taswell designs are classified as performance cruisers. Excellent technical design combined with Ta Shing’s world-famous quality creates a vessel with refined elegance, excellent performance, ruggedness and safety.”
