Toucan - 1985 Panda 40 - Hull #139

Designed by Bob Perry based on a concept by Bob Berg, Toucan is a canoe stern, traditional design cruising yacht. Check out the link "History of the Panda 40" at the bottom of this page for some interesting facts about the development of this venerable yacht design. With its 34 foot waterline length, Toucan's theoretical maximum hull speed is an impressive 7.8 knots making her quite fast for a moderate to heavy displacement ocean going vessel. She easily cruises faster than 7 knots on a reach and sails 150 to 175 miles per day with just one or two crew. The Baba, Panda, Tashiba, Tayana, Mason and Nordhaven lines of quality Ta Shing manufactured yachts are well known for their sturdy construction, beautiful detail, comfortable ride and superb handling. Toucan’s hull is graceful and efficient while the living spaces below boast high quality teak joinery. Toucan has been meticulously maintained since her creation in 1985. She will take you to your destination safely, speedily and in great style.

Toucan is U.S. Coastguard documented, ready to sail and currently located at the Oceanview Marina on Samal Island near Davao City in Mindanao in the Philippine Islands. Other exotic cruising destinations all lie within less than a week's sailing: Borneo, Micronesia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Palau. Other popular cruising grounds are a bit further afield but still easily reached: Solomon Islands, Australia and Malaysia.
