    Formosa - 56 for sale

    Sailing BoatsCruisersFormosaModel 56

    Fine example of the Formosa 56 ketch rigged cruising yacht - Undergone a major refit in the past 5 years. Built to the highest quality standards by the prestigious Formosa shipyard in Taipei, Taiwain in 1983, this ketch will make an excellent live aboard or world-wide cruiser. Not to be compared with other yachts of the same category, due to the heavy layup and construction, exclusive woodwork finishing and high quality deck equipment. A very capable yacht for high or low latitude sailing. Can be handled shorthanded – the current owner has singled handed this boat! This yacht is twin screw with bow thruster – very easy to ‘park,’ and safe. Complete with large generator, ‘as new’ sails, re-caulked teak deck, recent rigging. Lying in Falmouth – we can arrange a viewing at any time.
