The Reach

  • 35'
  • 1978
  • Fantasia Ta Yang
  • Massachusetts, United States
  • $46,500


The highly regarded Fantasia 35 was designed by Bruce Bingham and built by Ta-Yang in Taiwan to be a comfortable, safe, blue-water voyager. It features a full keel, heavy displacement, high freeboard and a center cockpit configuration with a master stateroom aft. The beautiful teak interior is of the highest quality and feels more like a 40 footer. She sleeps 6 in a 3-cabin layout with massive storage capacity for long distance cruising.  This is a big boat in a small package that is built to go anywhere. She would also make an excellent liveaboard.  Owners are ready to move on and offers are encouraged.
