Tauret 45 ft (Guardian of the horizon)

Tauret, named after the Egyptian godess Taweret, goddess of the horizon

The ancient Egyptian goddess Tauret, or Taweret, was most commonly known as the goddess of fertility. Her name means Great, and she is also the Lady of Waters, Heaven, and the protector. As such, she was often called upon by sailors seeking safe navigation and arrival at their destination. Like our very own Tauret, she was a great protector of the intrepid sailor.

However, let’s be honest, unlike our yacht, she was no beauty, with a hippo’s body, the head of a crocodile and the paws of a cat.

Our Tauret, a Jeanneau sun odyssey 45.1, is a spacious, capable blue-water cruiser. With 4 double cabins, and dinette seating which folds down to an extra double bed in the salon, she is the ideal temporary home for 8-10 sailors who want all the creature comforts on holiday without compromising on quality yachting.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a Cooker and oven, large fridge, and all utensils. She has 2 heads with wash basins and showers. Bedding and sheets are included.

Tauret comes with a double helm, furling genoa, mainsail with in-mast furling, dinghy (outboard available on request), life-raft, life jackets, and safety harnesses. She has a bow thruster, Raymarine multi-function display, wind meter, depth meter, log, and autopilot.
