We have owned Tao Yami since 2009. Our family has lived aboard Tao
Yami for as long as six weeks at a time while we cruised the New York
and Canadian canal systems, Lake Ontario, the 1000 Islands, the St
Lawrence River and Lake Champlain. The boat has kept us safe and
comfortable at all times.

Ten years ago, before we bought her, Tao Yami suffered an electrical fire
in her engine room. The prior owner replaced the damaged wiring and
hoses and secured insurance coverage to put her back into service.
Some evidence of the fire still exists in the engine room. None of which
creates a structural or systemic deficiency. It is unsightly, however. It’s
one of the items on my list that keeps getting put off in favor of more
important projects

One of the casualties of the fire was the loss of much of the air
conditioning system. We removed what wasn’t damaged since we had
no need for air conditioning in our cruising area. Essential elements
necessary for air conditioning are still in place. The raw water strainer
and seacock, water distribution manifold and the electrical system with
it’s own 30amp service are available should the new owner wish to reinstall
Air Conditioning.

Over the years of our ownership we have;
Replaced all helm gauges (upper and lower) with new Faria instruments
Replaced the flybridge bimini
Rebuilt the Maxwell Nillson windlass.
Refurbished all thru hull seacocks.
Replaced the forward head sink with a custom Corian sliding sink
Replaced the forward head toilet. Replaced sink faucet.
Added a solar vent to the forward cabin hatch
Added four new Caframo Sirocco fans.
Replaced the galley sink faucet. Refurbished galley sink cabinet.
Installed all new sanitary lines and vents and a new holding tank.
Replaced aft head toilet. Refurbished aft head sink cabinet.
Refurbished the Swim platform.
Refurbished the salon starboard door.
Refurbished engine room hatch covers
Replaced nav lights with LEDs
Installed an NMEA 0183 depth transducer and display for lower helm.
Replaced all cutlass bearings
Installed Shark line cutters.

It was hoped to take Tao Yami south this fall. In anticipation of that
move, the entire 12v battery system was replaced and upgraded in the
spring of 2016. Six new 6 volt batteries comprise a 645amp hour house
bank. Three new group 31 dual purpose batteries start the two engines
and the generator. All batteries are linked via two Blue Seas Automatic
Charge Regulators. Engine start battery switches were installed. All
cables were fused as required. A watering system was installed on the
house bank. A custom battery box and cover was built. Everything was
done in accordance with ABYC standards. The schematic used was
drawn for Tao Yami by an ABYC certified electrician who monitored the
Family considerations have changed our plans and we have reluctantly
placed Tao Yami for sale.
She is a good boat…

A survey was just completed. More attention was paid to Tao Yami’s
warts and not nearly enough to her great bones. It does describe a solid
hull and good performing systems and engines. (I would say ‘excellent’,
but surveyors don’t use words like that.)
