It wasn't exactly what we wanted but we were made an offer we couldn't resist. It's okay, its a big 42' awesome state room, good front berth, nice size salon and galley, however, the galley is below deck - no windows. I'm trying to find info on it and the only pic on google is our boat - It is a Taiwan boat, they shipped primarily to CA and Formosa mostly made sail boats. I'm trying to find out what the fuel tanks are made of and ways to check for leaks in them. How to you like yours? Are you running into any issues or do you have any cool tricks or tips for this particular boat? Thanks - Lisa

I have a 1977, and I'm in love with her. She's got the original old black iron tanks. I haven't scoped the tanks yet, since I haven't found any indication of water, rust, or leaks. Plenty of windows in my galley.
Peace,
Melissa

Two Formosa 51 sailboats were used in the filming of the movie, Capt. Ron. Wooden masts on one and aluminum on the other. If you watch carefully you will notice that. One of them belonged to a friend in Kemah, TX a few years ago. Typical Taiwan issues with leaks, etc. but built like a truck.

Formosa 42

They are a solid boat if the leaks have been sorted.Have had one for 15 years, due for the next refit.

Yes, I have a beautifully restored, well equipped 1981 Formosa 40' with low time Perkins. Berthed in SF Bay area. Love the boat but don't use it much. Considering listing it.
