Manufacturer description

The Tayana 48 is a solidly built Robert H. Perry design. The 40-foot waterline is relatively long to produce good speed, and the boat’s underwater profile features a long-chord keel of moderate draft and a solid rudder mounted on a large skeg for good tracking and control response. The hull has a moderate reverse transom. All these components together form a contemporary and well-proportioned boat. In winds that ranged from 10-20 knots for the test sail, the cutter rig 48 slid through the short, steep waves easily with a solid, gentle motion. The boat sails well to windward in these conditions, and off the wind it tracks ruler straight. On deck, toerails combine with 32-inch-tall lifelines and tree-sturdy stanchions to provide a secure feeling under way. The high center cockpit is comfortable and dry, there is a large step down from the cockpit to the deck. The ground-tackle system is outstanding. Hefty bow rollers and a powerful windlass make it easy to set and raise the hook, and oversized polished stainless mooring cleats are strong, well placed, and aesthetically pleasing.


The cockpit is beautiful with long seats for laying down and perfect level seating for the helm.

Designer’s comments

The design target for the Tayana 48 was to produce a boat that would outperform the competition in this size range in both boat speed and interior volume. This began with a comparative process not unlike the type used by designers designing racing yachs. Hull proportions were studied along with interior layouts in order to produce a hull that was not entirely based upon getting the maximum number of cubic feet into the allotted length overall. The general hull form features overhangs on the short side for a long useable sailing length. The sections shown moderate deadrise running from the forefoot to just aft of amidships where it begins to flatten out. All deadrise is gone at the transom. Beam at the waterline (BWL) is generous for good initial stability. Beam aft is moderate insuring that the 48 will not show distorted asymmetry when heeled that can lead to wicked helm situation and a boat with two personalities. The rig is positioned well forward in this design. This does two things that work to the cruisers advantage. It creates a rig that is forgiving in terms of helm balance and the need to reef in order to keep the boat manageable in a breeze. This boat has the power in it’s stability to be pressed hard and you can’t take advantage of that without good helm balance. This mast positional also results in the mast being lined up with the main bulkhead which opens up the main saloon space and makes strong chainplate attachment easy.
