Description

Pacific Seacraft 40 For Sale

A highly quality, and very capable, seaworthy bluewater cruiser.

Owned by an experienced and knowledgable yachtsman, Avocette is an absolute delight to step on board.

Superbly constructed, she is a serious bluewater yacht and supremely comfortable.

Designed for short-handed, long distance sailing, she will not only take you as far as you want to go, but her gorgeous lines will turn a fair few heads along the way too.

I would think any new owner would also find it hard to resist a glance over the shoulder when rowing away from her in the anchorage.

Hydrovane Self-steering
Fisher Panda 4kw 50Hz Generator (Major service 2014)
Eberspacher diesel hot air system
3-Blade feathering Maxprop (New 2014)
Village Wonder Modular 12v Watermaker 20 lt/hr (Requires service)

This boat was designed to be sailed long distances.

Avocette is both RCD and US compliant, and VAT paid.
Avocette benefits from being fitted with both 110v and 220v mains input.
Her pretty lines turn heads everywhere she goes.
