MOLA MOLA – The ultimate blue water sailing yacht. Fully loaded with nearly every imaginable piece of gear, hardware, and cruising equipment.  This is a boat unlike anything you’ll find for under $300,000. The Taswell 49 Bill Dixon design is strong, fast, and sea-kindly with an interior that is so comfortable it’s borderline “plush”. With proper displacement and balance for passagemaking and interior volume perfectly suited for ideal accommodations at sea, Mola Mola is as capable of a world cruiser as you could ever hope to find.


  • Stainless steel standing rigging replaced in 2012
  • Spacious and comfortable main salon with many custom features, lots of natural light though large deck salon windows, and updated with new upholstery
  • Three well appointed staterooms with accommodations for seven and two heads each with electric toilets and separate stall showers

  • A galley that is the envy of all sailors – Massive refrigerator and freezer space, abundant cabinetry customized for maximizing storage and functionality

  • Superb access to machinery and all major systems

  • Large 8kW Onan generator and 110hp Yanmar engine – Maintained for years by one of the most mechanically inclined sailors this broker has ever met. Absolutely fastidious about maintenance!

  • 3-Zone air conditioning with recently updated units

  • All the systems to make sailing safe and easy such as bow thruster, full compliment of electric winches, versatile sailplan with newer sails (Genoa new in 2018!)

  • Low maintenance deck with non-skid and just enough teak to give the boat that beautiful look – Teak on the foredeck replaced in 2012

  • Gorgeous flag blue hull repainted in 2012

  • A roomy cockpit that’s well suited for offshore sailing – can be fully enclosed by one of the best canvas enclosures you’ve ever seen aboard a cruising boat. The previous owner went through four iterations until he perfected the design

  • Fully loaded with recently updated electronics – redundant autopilots, newer Raymarine instruments, AIS, and everything you could desire for distance sailing

  • Every safety item and piece of cruising gear you’ll need – two liferafts, multiple EPIRBs, a set of 5 Personal Locator Beacons, brand new auto-inflating life vests, multiple ditch bags stocked with supplies, and enough spare parts to practically build another boat.

  • 9’ AB Dinghy with a brand new 9.9 hp Yamaha outboard and stainless steel Kato davits

  • New electric heads both forward and aft installed in May 2018
