This Crossbow 40 Cutter Riged Sloop designed by Angelos Lavranos (Angus Primrose and Sparkman Stephens trained) was designed as a serious centre cockpit blue water sailing boat.
Repainted with Hempel Multicoat.
She sleeps six in two state rooms and two additional berths forward and has two heads. Her aft owners cabin with en-suite heads, settee and chest of drawers is very palatial.
Her saloon has a divided area for safety in a sea way and she has good sized chart table.
Her galley which is under the port cockpit is good sized and very useable.
Powered by a Volvo MD22L 50hp which was completely rebuilt in 2011 with only a few hundred hours. Every thing that could wear in an engine was replaced so this is virtully a new engine.
For the serious cruising enthusiast, this Crossbow 40 Cutter Riged Sloop benefits from a comprehensive sail wardrobe, domestic batteries [new 2010], 400 watt Air marine wind generator, Force 10 stove, Radar, AIS [new 2011], SSB, Autopilot, Radio,CD MP3 player and electric anchor windlass.
'This boat is very satisfying to sail, reasonably fast with a dry comfortable motion I felt very safe when I single handed her across the N. Atlantic in 2010, direct N.Carolina to Scotland.
I had inetnded to keep her for further adventures but have decided to sell to free up funds so I can continue my sailing in a smaller craft.'
