TAG YACHTS

Tag

Tag Yachts was founded in 2007 and is focussed on high performance sailing catamarans which sail at wind speed from light airs of 5 knots and have exceptional upwind pointing ability similar to performance monohulls. Designed by Greg Young the styling is both classic and innovative. The unique accommodation layouts challenge the norms to create a very functional and liveable space. This combines performance and comfort into designs to suit the needs of the world cruiser and weekend racer in one package. The model range is the TAG 50, 60 and soon to come Custom 70 and 75 foot models.
