A rare opportunity to own a centre cockpit Montevideo 43 built by Fred Scholtz Marine in Cape Town. The wineglass hull has a large moulded fin keel and a skeg hung rudder making her a strong and stiff boat with excellent sailing performance, sailing beautifully in a variety of conditions. Down below there is plenty of teak and white veneer giving cozy yet spacious impression. The current owners have owned her for 15 years and have sailed extensively from Panama to Europe and back. They are selling as they have bought a bigger boat.

Sogno has been a joy to own and sail. She has taken me many thousands of miles and has never let me down. I have consistently upgraded her in an attempt to maintain her legendary pedigree. She is in great condition and ready to go where ever the new owners wish to go.
Built-in 1980 in South Africa, the Montvideo 43 is constructed of solid GRP with fully encapsulated cast iron keel. In 2008 the hull was epoxied and has recently (Oct 2018) been bottom painted with Seahawk Island 44. The decks are painted non-slip in a cream colour. Osmosis repairs have been carried out below the waterline but the topsides are showing some signs of blistering - the decks and topside could do with repainting - this is reflected in the asking price.
