Arcturus is now in the water and ready to sail! Call for Details.
Designed by Bob Perry and built by the famous Ta-Shing Yacht Building Company, the Tashiba 40 is a proven design capable of safe, comfortable passages while turning impressive speed. Beginning in 1984, a total of 115 Tashiba 40’s were built with production ending in 1996. “Arcturus” is likely one of the last built of this beautiful design, the craftsmanship and attention to detail now a bygone era.
“Arcturus” has been sailed many miles around the world’s oceans by her loving owners who have taken every measure to keep her maintained to the highest level. An offshore vessel gives back what’s put in; the essential formula required to sail with confidence in any direction the wind might be offering to take you.

Hand laminated one piece heavy duty fiberglass hull with optional polyurethane insulation for live aboard ability. Vinylester resins used on exterior for maximum osmotic protection as well as 951 Armorcote ® gelcoat which is formulated to provide outstanding weather resistance well beyond traditional gelcoats.
A series of longitudinal and transverse stringers are used to provide maximum hull support. Three coats epoxy with three coats Micron CSC anti-fouling bottom paint.
One piece internal iron cast ballast, bedded with fiberglass and polyester resin, glassed over to reinforce hull section.
Hand laminated FRP house and deck with end grain balsa sandwich construction. Where deck hardware is through bolted, it is reinforced with encapsulated marine grade plywood using stainless steel backing plates.
The owners traveled far and wide in search of the rare Tashiba 40 that was not constructed with teak decks.
Arcturus does not have teak decks making her easier to maintain and alleviating the potential for water intrusion into the deck coring.
