were manufactured in Taiwan at the Ta Chiao boatyard. Models included the CT41. Ta Chiao built 104 hulls from 1975 until 1986 when the mold wore out. However, there was still a demand for the design, so they made the 56-foot mold. They produced about a dozen of these 56ís. At this point, Don Gibson, the US importer and Michel Tissier, the European importer, got into a disagreement. They were expanding to a CT 48 design, but they disagreed what she should look like. The yard sided with Michel who wanted a more modern design with an unbroken sheerline. Don refused to import the CT 48. Soon, Michel went out of business, but Don was still at odds with Ta Chiao. The whole organization petered out. Although the CT series is gone, Ta Chiao was still distributing parts for the CT 54/56 as recently as 2 years ago to current owners.
