37m Pendennis ketch by Dubois and Disdale changes broker and price

The 37.4-metre blue-water performance ketch Taipan of Wales has changed broker and is now listed with Alastair Shove at Carrswood Yachts , with a new asking price.

Built in all aluminium, she was designed by Ed Dubois with an interior by Terence Disdale .

Delivered from UK yard Pendennis in 1991, the British pedigree sailing yacht’s naval architecture is also by the late Ed Dubois . She was originally delivered as La Cattiva for the late Peter de Savary, as he was starting up Pendennis shipyard.

Accommodating eight guests in four cabins, including a vast master cabin aft, the yacht for sale has had a series of refits in recent years, her third and current owner having purchased her in 2006. Her teak decks were replaced in 2015 and substantial works were carried out in 2020.

As well as the master suite, with its private Jacuzzi bath, there are two twin guest cabins and one double/triple cabin, with a fixed upper berth, all positioned aft of the saloon and having en suite bathrooms. Crew quarters for six comprise three cabins, forward.

A spacious deck saloon sports a full navigation station with forward-facing seats enjoying a commanding view through the wrap-around windscreen. This leads down to the open lower saloon featuring a dining area and ample seating. Forward is the galley and laundry, equipped with a range of Miele Professional equipment.

The foredeck boasts a "fast-fill" Jacuzzi pool, for relaxation at anchor, while the cockpit feels secure while at sea with its twin wheels and Bimini top offering protection from the elements, immediately aft of the dedicated guest cockpit. The aft deck is large enough to position a table and deckchairs for al fresco meals, when moored.

Taipan of Wales has a 4,700 nautical mile range under her single 543hp MTU diesel engine, that gives her a top speed of 12.5 knots and cruising speed of 10 knots. The ketch benefits from in-boom Reckmann furling and carbon-fibre spars, newly installed in 2006. Her inventory includes a Williams 565 DieselJet tender and Scubapro dive equipment.

Taipan of Wales is asking €2,950,000 and lying in Palma, Spain.

Curse my impulsivity, I'm buying a boat! Taipan 28

taipan yacht owner

  • Add to quote

Yeah so basically I couldn't help myself. Go China, although this was built before my Chinese boycott. It's through a yacht broker and they just dropped the price to $12000. Hopefully it wasn't just a sales tactic but the broker said that it's about to sell and if I want it I need to make an offer, then electronically sign the form he will send back to me and I give them a 10% deposit and have two weeks subject to inspection and sea trial. I called him just now because I had already decided it's the best boat listed. 28 Taipan Sloop 1976 Yacht for Sale The previous sale closed at $18000 A lot of details here 1976 Taipan - Interchem Engineers Ltd - Cheoy Lee - SOLD 32014 Taipan 28 sailboat for sale in California This will leave me enough to put the windvane I want on it. I talked to the owner that had it through years, the one who sold it to the current elderly couple. I contacted him trough sailnet actually. There are some older posts about this boat. Not the one dismasted in Vietnam! It's a good compromise for me. A decent size, a strong offshore proven design. The guy that has atom the Triton of atom voyages took one 6000 miles from Venezuela roundabout to Brazil. The broker said they use a trust service called .....hmm...yacht something. Is this a safe way to do things? Tell me I'm not an idiot. This way I'll have a boat ready to go. I can unload my gear and sail to Catalina!  

taipan yacht owner

Nice! Pending survey??  

Pending survey.  

taipan yacht owner

what yacht broker? make sure you arent getting scammed with a deposit! nice boat and congrats...slap a norvane on it, get some spares and sail on down!  

taipan yacht owner

I had good service in Seattle from "Marine Title" in handling the escrow, transfer of funds and registration for my boat. Before you send money to anybody, due your due diligence.  

And..... How to Caulk a Teak Deck | eHow  

taipan yacht owner

Yeah Denise... that is what I was thinking. Owner better love teak and have the hours needed to maintain. Either that or deep enough pockets to contract it. But she is a beautiful boat and should sail well...  

Good luck ! See you at the Island . Buffalo milk on me .  

taipan yacht owner

Taipan's have a good reputation. Best of luck.  

taipan yacht owner

SA/D of 13.74. That is a massive swing in the opposite direction from the types of boats you were asking about a couple of days ago. It looks like a stout little boat. Is the mast wooden or aluminum?  

taipan yacht owner

Nice looking boat! Is the hull fiberglass or wood? A word of caution: Check around to make sure that your surveyor is top notch. Brokers can find surveyors that will sign off on pretty much anything. Your surveyor works for you, not them!! If this is a wood boat, make sure they really know how to do it, because there are a lot of details about fastenings etc. that can make a huge difference. Also be aware of the potential problems of teak decks (leaks, hidden rot, etc.). the boat seems to be in the Bay Area. You might call one of the wood boat places (is it Spalding's Yachts in Sausalito?) to give you a recommendation on a surveyor who knows about wooden boats. Please don't take this as warning you off of a wooden boat, but be aware that they present different challenges than what we have come to expect with fiberglass boats.  

taipan yacht owner

Are you going to have it surveyed? I'm a leaky-teaky owner and those decks look like they have a lot of leak potential(screws and missing plugs). I'm not trying to be a dream buster. She is pretty and a stout design. But it is no fun in foul weather when a deck cant keep the shrouds separated because the coring is mush. If I loved her, I'd buy her, but I'd make sure her decks are sound before I took her very far from home. I have been following your boat search thread and it seems to me that you do your research well. Best of luck P-)  

Thanks. No it's not a wooden boat. Too much work for me. Teak decks though. I have spoken through email with the previous owner, the previous previous owner. He sold it in April for $18000. The new owners are living in NC and bought it sight unseen through a broker, came out once, hailed out and bottom painted, took one sail and decided they hated California. The most recent survey I have was done by them in March. I assured that the deck is sound. The teak was pulled and rebedded in 2012 and all bright work done. The spars are wood. That is a concern. The deck and the spars. I haven't gotten the contract yet, the broker is wiring it up and I will have it tomorrow. From wha I have researched it's not completely uncommon to buy a boat this way. Denison yacht brokerage seems legit and huge. Plus aren't I protected to some degree since it is subject to sea trial and survey. Once I get there(LA) can't I back out if it turns out to be a run down mess, or the engine won't start? Otherwise what does pending sea trial and survey mean? Yes, it is a departure from the last boats I have been looking at but in my heart I know an old race boat isn't for me. This boat checks every single box I have on my list. Big, but not too big. Standing headroom New cushions, new interior Re powered with Yanmar, I haven't talked to anyone who hasn't said they are #1 New sails, new roller furling New bottom paint, new deck paint Good potential self steerage New standing and running rigging Unique. It's different that all the Catalina's and ericsons With a j of 10.6, should be just big enough to stow my dinghy The really two drawbacks are the wooden spars and teak deck, but teak deck can be good. I may not be able to rebuild an engine, but I love to spend all day cleaning and polishing. If anyone can do bright work it's me. Do I really want to spend weeks driving through traffic looking at boats that could be terrible only to miss this one? This should put me on the water ASAP. I haven't been sailin in too long and I am ready to go. I know this isn't the way everybody would want to do it, but please, LET ME KNOW if in my ignorance or impatience I am making a mistake, like just in general being a sucker or asking for disaster. I really can't stand buying a lemon. I need this to work. It doesn't have to be perfect, not at all but I can't get a lemon. I appreciate all the help I have always been given, hopefully I will have thousands of miles under my belt soon and can give back. I like sailing, I like moving. I can see myself sailing day after day just living on the water, getting to the next place(with a windvane). I'm scared enough to be careful and do serious research, but not to scared to not do it.  

taipan yacht owner

Man, I can sure see why you went for it. VERY NICE. Best of luck.  

NOB - it's great that you feel that the boat checks most of the boxes. There's no perfect boat, and (to use the old cliché) you'd only be letting great stand in the way of good if you let her go. By all means hold on to your cash until the sea trials, but if you're happy, that's all that matters.  

ocean...wood spars can be a godsent or a nuissance... is the deposit non refundable meaning you have only signed on the deposit? pending a SEA TRIAL THAT YOU LIKE and a SURVEY only then would I agree to what tye broker is doing... you know I get excited for your boat choices and likes and try to help out but to an untrained eye you can miss one dry rot at the mast at the spreaders for example and thats game over for you till you find a good wood scarf or rigger that can repair it or an aluminum replacement which for all intents and purposes is going to be MUCH more expensive than a simple engine rebuild or even replacement. not to mention a complete an utter hassle to re rerig especially if you are not experienced with this and need to get pro help. im just saying it seems weird your jumped on this boat from far away when there are many others even cheaper that dont have the issues this boat can have right off the bat you are asking for advice, so dont get offended buying a half wooden boat off site is even risky to those of us with experience in wooden boats yes you are very safe with the hull as its a very reputable, thick glass hull so you wont sink but again heed the advice of PENDING SURVEY FROM A 3RD PARTY SURVEYOR AND NOT whatever that broker offers you... in fact you would do good by looking for a surveyor in that area familliar with wooden spars and decks etc...or old boats for that matter before going any further apart from that the boat looks really beatiful and has a nice reputation and as you mention james balwdiwn THUMBS UP which does mean a lot...as he has a lot of experience on this and many other small boats. peace  

taipan yacht owner

I think she's beautiful! And the fact that all the work has already been done on her... new rigging, engine, sails, etc etc...wow! I would see what other "systems" still need to be upgraded, such as nav lights, plumbing, etc. And assuming the hull and rudder are good, it's like a brand new boat with classic lines! And the price... I don't know how fat you wallet is, but compared to a new boat of that size, it really is peanuts, so your investment is minimal. It's like a new boat at old boat prices. Just hope you like brightwork! Enjoy it. Sometimes, impulse buys turn out to be the best!  

Also, judging by the canvas covers, somebody really cares for her. And although, the interior is packed full of stuff, it looks neat and well tended to...not cluttered and strewn about. The photos don't look staged at all either. And quantum sails too!  

northoceanbeach said: Hopefully it wasn't just a sales tactic but the broker said that it's about to sell and if I want it I need to make an offer Click to expand...

New engine is great. How new is it? The 1gm hasn't been made for about a decade, right? It isn't only less racy than what you had been looking at, it seems considerably smaller. The interior is much nicer though, and in my book that is a good thing for a boat that you'll be living on. The thing to be concerned about with teak decks on this vintage boat is not only how you'll take care of them, but how they've been taken care of in the past. If they've already leaked and the core in the decks is soggy then you don't want this boat. Hopefully a good surveyor will detect such a condition. It is normal to give a deposit to the broker during the survey period.  

taipan yacht owner

Is it your intention to make an offer to buy at the full asking price sight unseen ? Sounds like you'd have to come down to Redondo Beach within a week for the survey and sea trial anyway. I wonder how much the other "buyer" implied by the salesman intends to offer ?  

This sounds great. One caution: make sure you are emotionally set to walk away if the survey presents big problems in the mast, deck, engine (get a seperate engine survey) or any big suprise! Be sure the surveyor is up to snuff (ask around). Negotiate price to cover any surprises found in the survey. The boat looks great, and it should sail well!! Did I mention to be really careful to get a kick-ass surveyor. Get the guy (or lady) with the fussiest reputation!!  

Welcome to the Taipan family. I have hull 112, 1969. A multi year restoration and I now sail her on the NC coast. Turns heads in every harbour. Wood spars are no issue as long as you maintain them. I removed my teak decking, re-cored and replaced with fiberglass. Solid boat that will look after you. Surprisingly fast with a narrow beam and short LWL. I have PHRF raced her in cruising class and done very well with a favorable rating of 264.

really you went with that one? huh........... Just kidding, I can't even keep a straight face while typing that. I love that boat!! It looks very sweet. I don't have all the boat prowess that these guys have, but I can say, congrats. she looks so fine. hope the survey and sea trial go your way as well. don't forget to post pics of her sailing.  

A survey huh... can I trust them? It seems like I would be better served doing it myself. I'm getting a copy of a survey done in April. What could have happened dice then that you can't see? I don't trust surveyors. Or no, I don't trust all surveyors. There are good ones, but there are also those that charge $500 and come out and do the same thing I could. They don't go up the mast, they don't go below the water, and besisdes all the ones I called in Washington treated me like garbage. Like they would be doing me a favor to come out and take $500. I had one guy speak with me for less than 90 second, maybe less than 60 and he called ME back, and said unfortunately im out of time, click. A big name in Bellingham/seattle. I'll be the surveyor and live with the consequenses. I think Engine, Spars and deck, especially around the mast are what I am looking for mostly.
