“Celebrate” is a Taswell 58 AS sailing boat launched in 2003. My wife and I purchased her a year ago and sailed from Ft. Lauderdale to Nova Scotia and back to get used to her and decide on improvements.

She is a fast, comfortable boat with an easy sea motion and felt secure in squalls with winds to 75kts and loping downwind with winds to 50kts. For the refit currently in progress, we have replaced the navigational instruments and radar, upgraded the refrigeration system, added solar panels, some new sails, and are arranging to replace the standing rigging and most of the running rigging. Also, we have increased the storage space for additional gear and provisioning for the trip, are augmenting the safety gear and have added a Sat Phone with weather data capabilities. All-in-all we are making her as safe and comfortable as possible for the circumnavigation. She is a wonderful boat and we all can have a safe and enjoyable sail.
