Passat II is a classic Tayana 55. Her interior is an excellent layout with 2 cabins forward with en-suites and one large cabin aft with a Kingsize bed, bathroom and proper separate shower. Galley and Nav station off to Starboard and Saloon seating to Port with engine room entrance there also. There is also a lazerette in the stern and bow 'foxhole' storage in the bow.

She was bought a year ago as our forever home. Unfortunately my husband has passed away and I must swallow the anchor, which is why I am selling her for such a very reasonable price.
