About

Coconut Woman, a 1981 Panda 40, also known as the Baba 40 and Tashiba 40,  has proven to be a true blue water cruiser. Designed by Robert Perry and built by the Ta'Shing boatyard,  her classic Scandinavian-inspired appearance combined with her balanced helm and respectable speed contribute to a sailing experience not unlike that of cruising in a Cadillac Eldorado while slicing through waves like a freight train.  Well-built and tough, these boats are known for taking care of their crew.    For more details, visit the following link: http://bluewaterboats.org/baba-40/
