Introducing the new TAG 50
Designed by Greg Young and built by TAG yachts, the new TAG 50 is a perfect blend between sailing enjoyment, cruising comfort, performance and ease of ownership. The unique and innovative layout sets the standard and breaks into new territory altogether.
Imagine …… a super yacht size owners cabin, full beam cockpit/saloon living areas, 2 private (owners hull style) guest cabins, massive galley, dedicated outboard sailing cockpits and much, much more.Built to high production standards, the TAG 50 is also affordable, however the bottom-line is the enjoyment of sailing and getting precise feedback and exhilaration at the helm. The TAG 50 is an exciting new addition for TAG yachts.
Here are some of the vessels main conceptual ideas:
Open Plan Living
Progressing forward from other recent designs by Greg Young, the TAG 50 takes open plan living concepts into new territory. The main saloon has sliding doors that disappear and this fully connects the main living and outside areas into a single space. The solution is extremely clever yet simple.
The twin sailing cockpits are the perfect place to enjoy sailing. The wheels are located aft and outboard with a perfect view of the rig and waves creating this all important feeling when sailing a thoroughbred design, not to mention – ideal for reversing the vessel into a tight mooring or coming alongside.
However the main goal of the cockpit is sailing and here we have the sheet winches directly available from the helm position. What makes this layout so appealing is the outboard settee where everyone can sit and enjoy the sailing rather than stuck behind the main cabin and separated from the sailing action.
Probably the most interesting feature is the owner’s area of the vessel. Moving forward from the saloon, the bridge deck level master cabin is complete with a walk around/king size bed (1.8m wide), shower and bathroom. The concept is akin to a studio apartment and while it can be closed for full privacy, leaving it open allows views forward and most important is the massive opening forward window/hatch, which allows large volumes of air to pass through the vessel. Each hull has its own private en-suite cabin, which is normally considered an owners cabin on most other vessels. In total 3 x Ensuite cabins, plus an optional fourth crew cabin
Additionally there are numerous details to be found such as the unique folding swim-ladder and passarelle for stern to mooring. Hidden anchor system within the bowsprit. No forward beam. High aspect daggerboards. Lifting rudder system. Large steering wheels/quadrants for maximum helm feedback.Large engine room.Unique dining/coffee table/day bed.Large navigation/office location. Carbon wing mast option and large sail area for light air performance and much, much more……
