Default Formosa 44

I'm trying to find out the history of a 44ft canoe stern yacht that may have been a Formosa but built by Hans Christian in Taiwan. There seems to be many yacht builders who have used the same drawings but built to different standards, using varied materials. This center cockpit sloop was built in 1992 but fitted out in the US, not an uncommon arrangement I'm led to believe. I have struggled to find any more than one other of this type of yacht, for sale in the US. (search formosa 44).

Is there an article written that may clarify what Formosa actually built or possibly had built by other yards in Taiwan? As I'm new to this forum, I'm not sure how to post up pictures, if I can get one up, I will.

Thanks in advance, Graham.

Welcome aboard. I become overwhelmed with the similarities of the CT's, Hudson, Hardin, and others. There are several Bob Perry designs that are similar. I'm no expert on these yachts, hopefully someone else will come along with info.

Enjoy the forums in the meanwhile!
