"TABA" continues the line of very high quality yachts from Lyman Morse Boatbuilding. She is the fourth of fine yachts built from this mold, although each boat is distinctly different in the custom tradition of Lyman Morse.

Offered for sale by her current owner, TABA has undergone an extensive refit over the last several years. Her C12 Cat's were installed in 2006 and have remaining CAT ESP warranties available through 08/15/2017 or 3500 hrs. Complete paint job in 2007. TABA has had over $1 Million spent in updates over the past 8 years and represents the best value in a classic Downeast Cruiser.
