Taswell 43 All Season

Rare Taswell 43 All Season with raised salon interior. Only a few were built in this configuration. Designed by Bill Dixon and built by Ta Shing in 1992.

'Onward' has had two owners, both full time cruisers, who have meticulously maintained her. She is loaded with equipment and features that make her an ideal home for a cruising couple with extraordinary storage and first class accommodation for guests. Every system onboard is in excellent working condition and she easily passes as a boat of less than 10 years old.

Located in Chesapeake Bay and offered for sale at $279,000 US.
