1947 -

The Ta Shing Yacht Building Company Limited dates back in boat building terms to 1947, building fishing boats and small commercial craft. In the 1960's the yard became involved in building sailing yachts, predominantly on an OEM contract basis for various American and occasionally European organizations, as well as building the Mason sailboats (33, 44, 54, 64). Ta Shing is the builder of the BABA/TOSHIBA models, designed by Robert Perry and others such as the Orion 50, and the Norseman 447. The facilities at the yard are located in Tainan City (near Kaohsiung International Airport). By the late 1980's the yard developed it's own brand, the Taswell range of yachts. From the design studio of Bill Dixon, they include yachts ranging from 43 feet through 50 feet, 56 feet, 58 feet to 60 feet in both center cockpit and the All Season (Pilot House) raised deck saloon versions.
