SY TAURUS was built by the renowned German wharf Feltz (Karl u. Peter Feltz Bootswerft, Hamburg) in 1980. It is a Feltz Skorpion IIA steel yacht. Very well kept and robust. SY TAURUSís length was extended from originally 11.60m to 12.00m.
Feltz Skorpion yachts are designed mainly for bluewater cruising. They are well known for their reasonable material thickness, robustness and speed. With its semi long keel and a slim design that makes the yacht very course stable, what is necessary for steering with wind vane and autopilot. The engine is located in the keel and thus an integral part of the ballast. This construction makes it comparably light to other steel yachts. Additionally, this construction makes the living space of the yachts to be quite spacious. The hull design with its high freeboard and sharp stem allows the yacht to sail very dry and stable in all situations.
SY TAURUS is a very reliable and robust yacht. It has been around the world 1.5 times and went also successfully around the big capes, Cape Horn and Cape of Good Hope. Since it is built for bluewater cruising and was tested for several years, we are hoping that she will also escort her new owner safely over the world oceans.
Basically, SY TAURUS is ready to sail, fully equipped for blue water sailing, so that you can start your adventure with her. She comes also with all sorts of equipment and spare parts, that we are willing to sell as well.
