Tarikatua has 4 berths. There are 2 in the fore cabin which also has a deck hatch, shelves and windows. The saloon incorporates 2 settee berths, a galley, chart table, storage lockers and an adjustable, removable dining table. The galley area has a Plastimo gas cooker with grill. The heads, with portholes, wet hanging locker and shelves contains a Jabsco marine WC and is separated by folding doors from the saloon and fore cabin.
The strong traditional design with a short counter stern and long, lead encapsulated, keel gives a ballast ratio of over 50% which ensures excellent speed and sea keeping abilities in most conditions. She carries her sail exceptionally well in a good breeze, yet remains manageable and can be sailed single handed with ease if required.
