BREMER SPECK is as good an example of this venerable Sparkman Stephens Nauticat 40' design as you are likely to find anywhere. Her owner has recently finshed replacing much of her equipment which this listing will detail as to make model & date...Be sure to click on full specifications.
Nauticat is the premiere and largest builder of quality traditional and modern motorsailers in the world. Nauticat 40's S & S pedigree is a result of Nauticat acquiring the molds for their original 52and 43 from Nautor in the early 80's They liked these some much they commissioned S &S to design the 40'. It is the perfect choice for extended cruising and liveaboard. You will be challenged to find a more livable aft cabin on a 40 foot sailboat of this size and vintage.
A great and easy to handle size for a cruising couple with room for the rest of the family or friends...
If you have to travel to see her,do so, you will not be disappointed!!
In my 38 years of helping SELLERS and BUYERS Sell and find good Nauticats I seldom run across one with such current and complete refitting and updating.
Don't miss this one!
