She is for sale for $89,000.00   One of the last one of these very rare “Ron Holland” designed boats built. Fast & safe and capable for “ocean passage conditions”. I would compare this Formosa 43 to any quality sailing yacht built during the same era, including”  Tayana, Valiant & Tashing.

The Formosa 43 may have been designed with the charter business in mind, but “Meander” was

Hall way back to the nice engine room

never in the charter trades. She has 3 full & Comfortable “Double Staterooms” along with a crew berth up front and a salon table that can be lowered to accommodate another double berth. Making this sailboat able to sleep 9 people …in Comfort !…Amazing !

Starting at the back of the boat is a very private cabin for the Capt’n & 1st Mate. This cabin has 3 bronze port lights for light and ventilation. The mattress was new in 2005  with “Posture-pedic” foam cushion top by the Lemoine Sleeper mattress co. This cabin has a private full head with shower, 4 drawers under the berth a full length shelf above the bunk, a large framed mirror and a fold up desk. A large hanging locker is  located in the hall way to the Engine room.

Main Salon table / double berth

Next forwards: is the main salon which will sleep 2 on the  settee, after lowering the table,  complete with new green material on the cushions & 5” foam. With the table up this makes a great pilots berth – safe and snug. The main salon has 4 opening bronze port lights and 2 new Bomar hatches.

Then next forward are 2 guest cabins with double

bunks in each along with 9 drawers, a full length shelf above the bunks, a large framed mirrors and a fold up desks. Each guest cabin has a hatch & window for light & ventilation ! WOW !

Then forward is the athwart ship guest head with shower electric WC and vanity sink with mirror & med. cabinet.

Then finally forward is the crew berth with a hanging locker with shelves inside, a desk with drawer and a large hatch for the best ventilation in the whole boat. I use this room for my work shop storage area as the 3 double rooms where plenty for my needs. (one double cabin for each of my kids).

My Kids are grown and off to university and don’t sail
