About us

Tai Pan

Although I know Tai-Pan very well and my family have been taking care of it for more than thirty years, we still do not know its entire story. We do know that its history started in Taiwan, with the construction of the hull. It sailed then over the ocean, towards the South-American seas, where all its wooden details were added. It remains a mystery how it arrived in Europe... I remember however that during travels in childhood, my grandfather was telling me stories about how he had bought the boat – some fantastic stories with pirates, which in my eyes and in the darkness of a lonely creek could have become reality... Thus, from bay to bay, from harbour to harbour, our travel with Tai-Pan continued over the Mediterranean. I have travelled a lot with this boat, and yet at the beginning, it seemed to me slow, clumsy and annoying... As time passed, I have learned to appreciate and admire it, and to understand that to sail on a motorboat does not necessarily mean to sail fast. We sail slowly with the sound of the sea, with the light breeze of late September, catching the true delight of nature. Its history has become ours. And yet, my grandfather taught me not only how to sail, but also how to work the wood, how to take care of the hull, and how to let myself fall in love with every single journey. I would like to pass this true passion of mine further on to you.
I wish you all fair winds and following seas.
Lorenzo
