42' Ta Shing 1980 Mystique


Robert Perry Designed

Modified Fin Keel with Skeg-Hung Rudder

No Teak Decks!!


Goiot Hatches and Stanchions

Entire Exterior of Boat Painted by Gulf Coast Composite

Recent Aluminum Toe Rail


Electric Winch

The Tatoosh 42 was designed by the legendary Robert Perry and built by the highly-regarded Ta Shing yard in Taiwan.  Like most Perry cruising designs, she sports an encapsulated modified fin keel with a skeg-hung rudder, she’s a splendid offshore passage maker with a sea-kindly motion, has plenty of structural bulkheads for strength and stiffness and a luxurious interior that is both comfortable and practical. 

A lot of effort was put in to the design of the interior—plenty of room to easily move around and yet no wide-open spaces to get thrown around when offshore.  The teak joinery on the interior is superb and there are plenty of well-placed hand-holds throughout. Interior edges and corners are rounded to reduce the likely hood of “boat bites”.

Mystique is truly a special yacht.  Her owners did a major refit in 2007 and in 2010, including a new aluminum toe rail, removal of the teak decks, painting the entire vessel and much more.

Be sure and contact the listing broker today to set up a time to see Mystique.
