The Executors of the owner, sadly deceased, have retained and instructed us to offer this Huffler 40 for sale. Supplied by us new in 2010 she has had very little use and has returned to our yard for a thorough checkup and is available now for viewing. She represents a fantastic saving on a new boat price. She has had virtually no use since we commissioned her for the late owner.
She is category B for the Recreational Craft Directive.
Nominal 40ft x 11ft x 3ft 3n keel up, 4ft 6 in keel lowered. The self-lowering masts enable you to venture inland when required, the lifting keel means she can venture into shallow waters. With RCD Category B you can take her to sea.
The price includes us commissioning her when she is relaunched and us showing you how to sail her and settle you in, just as we did for the original owner.
Price, VAT paid £195,000.
