Welcome to my Website!

This site is dedicated to the Tanzer 25 Sailing Yacht

Last Updated  9-23-2011


Photos - We don’t have too many of our boat, there are a few that I like in here.  If you have one, mail it to me.

As I have time, I’ll be updating the site with better pictures, projects, maintenance woes, and links to other owners of the few 25s that were made.  I hope to make this site a resource for the people who have an interest in the last of Tanzers’ great line of yachts.  For now, just e-mail me with questions or information.  I like pictures of other T-25’s as well.
