There's plenty of room on the foredeck to set up a table and chairs for lunch

Halliard winch and compass binacle with candle holder!

A great shot of the wide side decks. There's no shortage of sunbathing space

The plan opposite shows the layout. Forward is the skipper's cabin with separate heads

Guests are accomodated in the saloon and aft cabin with heads and shower locker off the companionway

Tai also has awnings to give shade in the day and shelter at night. In the warm waters of the Mediteranean nothing beats sleeping on deck under the stars.

Tai is a skippered charter. If you have experence you can help to sail her too. If not we can supply a mate to sail her with the skipper.

Tai will be based in Kusadasi on the Turkish Coast opposite Samos and on Skiathos. Your cruising waters and itinerary can be tailored to give you the ideal holiday

Tai Mo Shan's first job for Classic Sailing Club was to star in the film version of the world's most successful musical 'Mama Mia' . Starring the likes of Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Julie Walters, the story takes place on a Greek Island and features the songs of the pop group ABBA.

Most classic yachts have a few stories to tell, Tai Mo Shan has more than most. The official story goes that in 1932 Five young Naval officers stationed in Hong Kong pooled their funds and commissioned a 54ft ocean going ketch from HS Rowse. They then asked for leave and sailed her back to Dartmouth via Japan, Alaska, San Francisco, Panama and Bermuda. New fact have however been emerging which tells a much more interesting story.......... (watch this space)

She was built to such high standards in teak that a surveyor once described her as twice Lloyds specification. Once home she was one of the original yachts purchased by the Royal Navy Sailing Association. (For the full story Click here)
