Full Specifications


The Taswell 49 is a three stateroom, center cockpit boat offering that sought after owners’ aft stateroom with ensuite head and shower with a large guest stateroom forward with a third cabin with upper and lower berths and a large head and stall shower forward. The galley is completely livable with all amenities and the spacious salon makes the boat comfortable for a family on an extended cruise.

You will delight in the sophisticated modern layout with its clean lines and stylish built-in furniture. With almost seven feet of head room in the salon, this vessel is a truly lovely home with an expansive interior with light and space. The cherry joinery is warm and bright with custom shelving and even a customized counter extension in the galley. The spacious, light and airy interior is enhanced by the new ceiling panels that make the boat feel brand new. New led lighting makes the boat a comfortable home at night along with an oil lamp for some nautical mood lighting!

As you enter the companionway, you are struck by the space and the elegance of the interior. The teak and holly cabin sole refinished in 2008 is a warm complement to the bright and airy feeling provided by four windows in the salon and 16 opening ports and hatches. The rounded dinette to port is striking with comfy blue Ultrasuede cushions new in 2007 and a beautiful teak inlaid dining table with an additional bench seat to make comfortable dining for six. To starboard a long comfortable settee makes a wonderful additional sea berth.

The galley is just aft to starboard right at the companionway where it is safe and comfortable in a seaway and easy to pass food up to the cockpit. The galley is completely secure with a Force 10 stove and oven outboard, the refrigerator/freezer aft with cabinets above, and the double sinks inboard on the centerline.

The nav station to port at the companionway is a full sized sit down, forward facing nav station just like you want. All the instruments installed in 2007 are flush mounted with a perfectly clean installation.

The walkthrough to the aft cabin is on the port side passing the nav station with engine access under the cockpit.

As you walk into the aft cabin, which is the beautiful owner’s aft stateroom, you realize that this vessel is a palace! The aft cabin has a queen sized centerline berth with access on both sides and a real mattress 2008!

There are nice reading lights on either side of the big bed. The adjoining private head has a with marine toilet and stainless steel sink set in a Corian countertop with a mirrored cabinet above and an opening port. The best part is the separate stall shower with a seat, opening port and hinged shower door. Outboard of the shower is a huge linen cabinet.
