Dark Star – A Taswell in Seattle

So, we’ve been nerding out on Taswells a good bit lately, and were really excited to find this beauty. Dark Star is a Taswell 43, located in Seattle, Washington. She’s been well-maintained by her owners and is nicely updated and outfitted for cruising in the Northwest and well beyond.

Taswell high-performance cruising yachts were built by the very reputable Ta Shing Yacht Building company in Tawain. Ta Shing has been building yachts since 1947, primarily on an OEM basis for various American and European companies, like Mason, Hans Christian, Norseman and many others. Known for their high-quality construction and excellent joinery work, Ta Shing launched their own brand of sailing yachts under the Taswell name in 1986. Taswells have long been a great under-the-radar find – high-performance well-built yachts, very much on par with more well-known brands, but often at a price on the used market that is well below comparable ships.



Dark Star fits the mold perfectly. At $159K USD, she’s ready to take her new owners anywhere in the world in style. The interior layout provides extraordinary space for cruising with a wide salon, full navigation center, proper galley, large aft owner’s cabin with centerline queen berth and ensuite head and stall shower, and spacious guest cabin forward with private head.
