This boat has given my partner & I a lot of fun over the 30 years we have owned it. We raced it out of the CYC at Rushcutters Bay and for many years out of the Balmain Sailing Club. We have cruised the east coast in her as well.

However since retiring some time ago I have been racing on other boats & dear old Taboo has languished on her mooring. It’s time to face the fact that we are not going to make good use of her any more, so she is now for sale.
