The largest of the Tayana line and queen of the fleet is the awesome Tayana 65. Without question, the Tayana 65 represents an unparalleled value in a yacht of this size and class. A generous beam of almost 18 feet and a waterline length of 52 feet together provide for accommodation space comparable to yachts in the 75- to 80-foot range. As with all Tayana yachts, owner input is encouraged to insure that any and all personal requirements are met. While the emphasis is always on value, Tayana Yachts continues to target the highest standards in quality materials and construction. Today's sailing technology combines with old world craftsmanship, making the Tayana 65 a yacht that deserves your most careful consideration.
