Not often do you get a chance to see a TS50 up close, let alone purchase one. BAIES DU MONDE is a magnificent TS50 built in 2005. Her twin daggerboards and high performance rig can easily propel the boat to speeds in the 20 knot range yet provide cruising accommodations and space for a family of four plus guests. Upgraded to the highest level of equipment and maintained by an experienced sailor couple this TS50 is not to be missed and presents a great opportunity to purchase a high performance cruiser with all the proper equipment already added.

BAIES DU MONDE had a complete refit between 2012 and 2013 in France.
