Home » Beneteau Cyclades 50 ‘Tatonka’ Under Sail In The BVI

The Beneteau Cyclades 50 is, compared to other 50 footers, a big boat and very accommodating, all without sacrificing performance. The 16-foot beam translates to a terrific amount of space inside and out, about twice the volume of more traditional 50-footers. This space leads to a level of comfort unsurpassed in its class. This particular 4 cabin model has been converted to three cabins by removing the divider wall in the forward cabin making for an extra large forward master cabin. Each cabin features its own head and shower, and the forward master cabin has converted the additional head to a large storage closet. There is also a single berth and head for crew/storage/workshop way forward, accessed through a foredeck hatch.

Stepping on board ‘TATONKA’, the level of thought and care that has gone into the upgrades and upkeep is obvious. The owners bout this vessel NEW in 2005 and have been seasonal Nanny Cay Marina locals for many years. They are avid cruiser/racers winning many races aboard the vessel in and around the Caribbean. Tatonka took First Place in The Full Moon Race around all the BVI Islands 25 hrs. total time!. This is THE yacht to beat in the on the race course and back to the beach bar.

Although it would be difficult to tell looking at her, ‘Tatonka’ spent her first 5 years in the Moorings fleet here in the BVI and received an extensive ‘phaseout refit’ by the Moorings in 2011. She shows very well inside and out with little evidence of wear and tear due to her thorough maintenance and upkeep schedule over the years. The owners have kept the vessel in a top tier management program (B&G Marine Services) here in Nanny Cay Marina focusing their attention and sparing no expense on maintenance and upgrades that to performance, accommodation and ease of sailing. Things like aligning the rudder with the keel, opposed to the stock offset rudder that allows for pulling the prop shaft without removing the rudder. Installing (3) top of the line electric winches that can be controlled from either side of the cockpit with a push of a button. Installing a oversized custom rigid Bimini with high grade isinglass panels and shade curtains all around the cockpit. New sails in 2014 from Doyle that are in great condition. Other recent upgrades include new running & standing rigging in 2018 (Not damaged! Rig was down for the summer of 2017 storms) a custom solar arch/dinghy davits in 2011, NEW Battery Bank 2020, NEW 9kw Northern Lights Generator in 2018 with only 920hrs and much more…

The owners of this 100% turn key, ready to go sailing TODAY Cyclades 50 have priced their beloved ‘Tatonka’ to sell as they will be looking to upgrade to a bigger boat in the near future. Currently on the hard and will be prepped for summer storage here at Nanny Cay Marina. This is a lot of boat for the money and will not last long on the market!
