FRESH WATER TANK
The Tanton 44-CT is a true bluewater cruiser. Built in Taiwan in the Ta Chioa Brother’s yard, she is solidly constructed, so is heavy and sea-kindly and comfortable to live aboard. Her designer Yves-Marie Tanton was of the same era as Bob Perry and Chuck Paine, all of whom designed boats with long distance cruising in mind.
Her first owners bought her on the West Coast and cruised her extensively, taking her from the West coast into the Caribbean. The second owners sailed her up and down the East Coast and her current owners (of 20 years) kept her in Maine for the first years of their ownership and have subsequently cruised her extensively.
Over the years there has been constant in-depth maintenance (records available), some of which can be found in the Full Specifications.

If you are looking for a good, solid, go-anywhere, cruising boat, where the owners have done the work and you can go sailing… immediately…. look no further than Gray Ghost! She’s a gem.
This vessel is designed with long distance cruising in mind. At the base of the companionway there is a double cabin to port and head to starboard, for easy ‘in and out’ under way.
Forward of the aft cabin on the port side is a spacious galley with counters on 3 sides and storage above and below counter level. A central counter runs fore & aft and doubles as the housing for the engine. Engine access is through hatches on 3 sides. To starboard is the nav station with forward facing.
The salon consist of a straight settee to starboard and an L-shaped settee to port which pulls out to form a double berth. The centrally positioned table has large, solid leaves that fold out to reach both seating areas. The table has storage. The keel-stepped mast is situated at the forward end of the table.
Walk through the forward bulkhead to a cabin which has storage and a seat to starboard, V-berth and head to port. There is storage along both hulls and at the foot of the bunk as well as beneath the bunk.
