About this Ta Chiao CT 41 Ketch

41' CT Ketch 1973

Price Reduced!

Designed by William Garden, “Content” is a beautiful example of this popular ketch, and like a fine wine she has only gotten better with age. Current owners have spent 43 years upgrading her to be the best that she can be. Built with heavy fiberglass and fine lines she is sturdy and eye-catching at the same time. With a complete refit from, custom upgrades set her apart from the rest including bronze auto prop propeller, marine grade stainless steel tanks, water maker, aluminum fuel tanks, overhauled engine, marine grade wiring, and custom galley on port side including wine cellar. Electrical system has been custom designed to 12V DC to support life off-grid. Her bottom has just been painted, and she sits in the water waiting for her new owners.

She has circumnavigated once and she is ready to do it again with you!
