S/Y TARONGA sold by Northrop & Johnson
S/Y TARONGA was designed by the legendary designers at Sparkman & Stephens and was the number six of only 11 Maxi 88s built between 1989 and 2005 at the CIM shipyard in Rochefort, France. The sailing yacht underwent extensive modifications from CIM engineers in 2013/2014 and an exterior and interior refit in 2017, rendering her in superb condition.
This transatlantic cruiser offers both superior comfort and top performance. S/Y TARONGA showcases a beautifully handcrafted interior with classic, elegant styling. The luxury yacht's interior is light and airy, thanks to numerous windows throughout. The sailing yacht's salon features a large settee on one side and a comfortable sofa opposite. There also is a bar. This layout makes the space ideal for relaxing after a day full of sailing and entertaining guests. The yacht also has a commercial galley, fully equipped for a chef.
S/Y TARONGA offers accommodations for six guests in three nicely appointed staterooms. The sailing yacht features a spacious master stateroom with a private bath as well as two double-bed staterooms. Each guest stateroom has its own bath. In addition, TARONGA has accommodations for three crewmembers in three crew cabins.
On deck, the luxury sailing yacht has an expansive 45-square-meter covered cockpit with two large settees. This is the ideal place to dine alfresco and relax under sail or at anchor. The helm is just forward of the cockpit and well protected from the elements while still providing excellent sight. Further forward is a lovely oversized double seat on the bow, which provides a private escape.
