Fully Equipped Live Aboard Performance Cruising Yacht. A Modern Classic.
The Cambria 40 was specifically designed and built for sailors seeking a modern, proper blue water yacht. She has the strength, comfort, manageable performance and graceful lines one expects in the luxury class. Her medium displacement balanced design provides unlimited offshore capability combined with classic hull shape. The Cambria's have earned a reputation for their attention to detail and proven resale value.
"Love-Zur" is a fine example of a well cared for Cambria 40, designed for offshore cruising, equipped for extended live aboard passage making and offered by serious sellers who have finished their sailing sabbatical. Currently located in Aruba, she will be returning to Fort Lauderdale in early 2021.
Her David Walters-designed hull form, David Pedrick-designed wing keel and custom carbon fiber rig make this vessel an exhilarating sailor, yet she is easily handled by a cruising couple. She is also a lovely yacht with dark green hull, almond canvas, hand-crafted teak interior and teak deck appointments. Beneath her outward beauty, the yacht has been comprehensively refit, equipped and well maintained by her current owners to reflect their live aboard, blue water passage making lifestyle.
“LOVE-ZUR” can accommodate five or more in her spacious hand-crafted interior. The cabin is finished in teak and other optional hardwoods. Hull sides are sheathed with teak battens (ceilings) which are set off the hull to provide ventilation and additional insulation. The outboard sides of all lockers are finished in the same manner. The cabin sole is teak with contrasting inlay and is removable for access to the bilge. Lockers are wood lined with the addition of cedar to the main hanging lockers. The cabin headliner is installed in removable sections.
Cabin lighting and ventilation is enhanced by six (6) ABI stainless steel opening ports with custom thru bolted frames, spigots, no-see-um screens and privacy shutters. The fixed portlights port & starboard are protected offshore by thick, custom plexiglass storm shutters. For comfort, eight (8) Caframo 12v circulation fans are distributed throughout the interior. For DC power conservation, all cabin lighting has been retrofitted with LED bulbs, including:
The galley is located to port between main salon and companionway. A three burner Force 10 stove with oven and broiler (new 2013) is gimballed in a stainless steel liner and includes a burner rebuild kit. The galley range is topped with both wood butcherblock and custom acrylic cutting boards. Propane is stored in two 10 lb tanks in a vented cockpit locker; the cooking gas supply is monitored by an electric solenoid shut-off located in the gas locker.
The top- and front-loading ice box incorporates a vapor barrier with maximum foam insulation. An Adler-Barbour Super Cold Machine refrigerator / freezer was installed new in 2013 and includes three (3) vertical ice trays.
A Scanvik double stainless steel sink (new 2013) is supplied with hot & cold pressure water and foot pumps for fresh and salt water. Two large multi-shelf lockers with sliding plexiglass doors are located outboard of the stove and counter. Countertops are surfaced with white Corian and expandable with a built-in, hinged countertop extension/cutting board. A vertical compression post is set into the galley countertop.
A large, comfortable nav station with swivel stool is opposite the galley to starboard. A spacious navigator’s desk with French F4 TouchLED chart light provides ample space for charts and navigation related gear. The masterBass main electric distribution panel and all communications and marine electronics are located here.
Continuing aft is the main salon. Opposite the head to starboard is a shelved stowage locker. Weems & Plath analog ships clock, barometer and thermometer decorate the starboard bulkhead. While the opening ports, overhead hatches and Dorade vents make this space light and airy, the warmth of the teak joinery and hunter green upholstery provides a beautiful traditional interior. Settees are placed port and starboard; the port settee converts to a double berth. Both settees have lee cloths for secure offshore rest. A teak dining table is mounted centerline which, can accommodate up to six people. Stowage lockers, cupboards and cubbies surround the main salon port and starboard. For safety offshore, handrails are mounted on the waterways under the opening ports and run the full length of the cabin.
Starting forward is a double anchor locker for stowing primary and secondary anchor rode in separate compartments, accessible through a large opening panel forward of the V-berth. The room and stowage in the owner’s V-berth suite are generous; the large 6’6” berth has hinged tops opening to provide access to stowage underneath. Outboard shelves, hanging and shelved stowage lockers plus a small settee provide additional space for clothing and personal effects. An opening port on starboard, large overhead hatch with custom wood-framed opening screen and a dorade vent provide ample ventilation and light. All ports and hatches are fitted with privacy shades and no-see-um screens. All hatch lenses are protected by custom Sunbrella covers (new 2013). All dorade vent hoods are polished stainless steel with secure deck plates for offshore water tightness.
Aft of the nav station is a double quarter berth with locker and dressing seat. An available privacy panel and arched teak privacy door convert this space into a private guest cabin.
The head compartment is aft of the forward cabin, to port, with manual Raritan PH-II head. The sole is a varnished teak grate covering a sump that discharges directly overboard by a 12 volt DC pump. The vanity has enclosed shelves and a wrap-around mirror. The 20 gallon holding tank is equipped with both an on-deck pump-out fitting and an offshore Whale Gusher overboard evacuation pump (new 2013).
The Cambria 40 is a medium displacement performance cruiser. She carries a fine entry, full midships waterline beam, an easy run and balanced ends. The Cabo Rico-built hull is hand laminated vinylester with ¾” Airex core in the hull and stiff PVC (Divinylcell) in the deck, cockpit and coach roof. Bi-directional and triaxial fiberglass materials are used in the hull, deck and bulkhead attachments. The core materials assure maximum sound and thermal insulation and the strongest bond to inner and outer glass laminates. A keel grid stiffens the bilge area, supports the cabin sole, is bonded to the hull and integrated with the mast step and engine mounts forming a single unit.
An optimum hull-to-deck joint is obtained with an internal deck flange at the sheer. Below water thru-hull fittings are marine bronze full-way seacocks bedded on solid glass (core material is removed and replaced with solid glass). The approximately 9,500 lb molded lead ballast wing keel provides protection in the event of grounding and is secured to the hull with 1" L-shaped stainless steel bolts and 5200 bedding compound. Additional fiberglass reinforcement is incorporated in stress areas such as stern, keel, transom and skeg. Chain plate knees of solid fiberglass laminate are bonded to the hull and deck, becoming a structural part of the interior hull. A spacing material is placed between the bulkhead and hull with radius filler and attached with glass strand ties every foot followed by multiple layers of tabbing on each side of the bulkhead.
Topsides are Awlgrip dark green with gold cove, white boot and red bottom antifouling.
The deck, cabin top and cockpit are a one-piece fiberglass molding cored with stiff PVC material (Divinylcell) to provide maximum strength. PVC core is preferred as a deck core material for water resistance and superior bonding. Higher density material is used in the area of the mast partners, winch bases and other high-stress areas. The deck is bonded to the internal flange of the hull with 3M 5200 (the strongest bedding material for this purpose) and thru bolted on 8" centers. The teak toe rail is in turn thru bolted on alternate 8" centers, which provides a thru fastener in the hull/deck joint every four inches. This assures a strong permanent and watertight hull-to-deck joint. Stainless steel bow pulpit, stern pushpit, double lifeline stanchions (with gates port and starboard), jackline attachment padeyes and teak cabin top handrails provide on-deck security.
All deck hardware, lifeline stanchions, headsail sheet fairlead tracks, traveler, winches, turning block bases and cleats are thru bolted and backed. Stainless steel double rail pulpits with double lifelines are standard along with a polished stainless stemhead with anchor chock and roller. A non-skid deck surface is provided by teak veneer epoxied to the fiberglass deck (no penetrating fasteners). T-section Harken anodized aluminum genoa and staysail fairlead tracks are provided.
Light and ventilation below are maximized with four opening Lewmar Ocean deck hatches (new 2013) with custom Sunbrella lens covers (new 2013), six opening ABI stainless steel ports with custom thru bolted frames, beveled spigots, removable no-see-um screens and three stainless steel Dorade ventilator hoods with watertight deck plates. A folding stainless steel swim ladder can be deployed at either the port or starboard gate. Stainless steel jerry can racks provide secure on-deck lashdown points for spare fuel and water jugs.
On deck lighting includes LED running lights for masthead tricolor/anchor/strobe, bow, stern, steaming and foredeck/spreader lights.
The Cambria’s comfortable T-shaped cockpit, with proper bridge deck and teak grate sole, is deeply recessed and secure for day sailing or ocean passages. The cockpit shape allows ample room for helmsman and crew to sail efficiently and safely and is particularly well suited to shorthanded sailing. Cockpit seat-back height/angle, recessed cleats and closed cell foam seat cushions maximize crew comfort.
Halyards, sheets, reefs, furls, runners and traveler lines are led aft to the cockpit through Lewmar line stoppers. The cockpit is protected from sun, rain and salt spray by a custom Sunbrella and zippered Isenglass dodger with deep stowage pockets, Sunbrella bimini, connector and side shades (new 2013).
The companionway provides a translucent sliding hatch and the entrance is secured with either locking solid teak or screened staggerboards.
Cable and quadrant steering is accomplished with a 36” stainless wheel mounted on an Edson binnacle with Navpod-enclosed Garmin 7212 radar/chartplotter (new 2013), a 6" Ritchie Globemaster compass (new 2013), Vetus throttle (new 2013) and SidePower bow thruster joystick. A direct emergency tiller steering system is also provided. The Yanmar engine control panel (new 2013) is recessed to starboard and the Garmin autopilot control head (new 2013) is recessed to port, both handy to the helmsman.
The fiberglass rudder is built around a stainless steel stock with welded stainless steel flanges. The stock is attached to a Harken roller bearing mounted on the cockpit floor and passes through a second Harken roller bearing at the water line with the seal above. An additional bronze bearing is attached to the lower portion of the skeg.
For offshore passage making, the helmsman is aided by a Simrad-Robertson electro-hydraulic autopilot (rebuilt 2013; includes spare hydraulic linear drive) with Garmin control head (new 2013) and Scanmar Monitor servo-pendulum wind vane self steering mechanism (new 2013).
The Tillotson Pearson-fabricated carbon fiber double spreader mast is keel stepped with SparTite-sealed partners. The mast step, discretely concealed in the head compartment, is fastened to ½" metal insert plates embedded in the keel grid. Internal halyards are provided for mainsail, two (2) headsails and two (2) spinnakers. The boom is an aluminum extrusion with internal reefing lines and outhaul.
Standing rigging is Navtec solid stainless rod (refurbished 2012) with turnbuckles leading to stainless chainplates. Mast rake is controlled by a Navtec hydraulic backstay adjuster (rebuilt 2012) and Harken block-and-tackle/Spectra running backstays.
All running rigging (halyards, sheets, furls, reefs, runners, traveler, cunningham, outhaul and downhaul) were replaced new in 2013. Other rigging features include:
Auxiliary power is supplied by a 62 horsepower, freshwater-cooled Yanmar 4JH2-TE turbo-diesel (rebuilt 2013). The gearbox is a Hurth V-Drive (rebuilt 2017). An isolation bilge is provided below the engine and gearbox. The stainless steel shaft (rebalanced 2013) passes through a Tides Marine StrongSeal dripless stuffing box (new 2017), supported outboard by a custom bronze strut and cutlass bearing (replaced 2017) driving a fixed three blade prop (new 2013) with Shaft Shark line cutter (new 2013). The engine compartment is sound insulated and equipped with a Mayfair 12V exhaust blower and 12V crankcase/gearbox oil evacuation pump.
The Yanmar instrument panel (new 2013) provides a tachometer, oil pressure gauge, engine temperature gauge, voltmeter and alarms for low oil pressure and high temperature.
A fiberglass diesel fuel tank with 90 gallon capacity is housed in the port lazarette. The diesel fuel line is fitted with a dual Racor filter/water separator with vacuum gauge. The exhaust system is constructed of heavy-duty exhaust hose and uses a Vernalift water lift muffler and tailpipe baffle. Machine spaces are illuminated with three (3) overhead dome LED light fixtures (white) and protected by a Fireboy halon fire suppression system. On centerline, adjacent to the galley and just forward of the companionway, teak panels open to allow easy access to the engine space.
A heavy duty12 volt / 30 amp DC electrical system provides the vessel's electrical power with four deep-cycle lead acid Trojan house batteries (new 2103) and one deep cycle lead acid Trojan engine-starting battery. A heavy duty Balmar 165 amp alternator is mounted on the engine. A custom Bass 33 breaker DC electrical panel with AC and DC load and battery condition indicators is provided. Three electric power distribution centers provide for zoning of the electrical system and facilitate accessibility for servicing circuits or adding equipment. Bonding of thru hull fittings, standing rigging and major components uses fully insulated copper wire. Major electrical equipment includes:
A Rainman 30 GPH watermaker was added new in 2017 to supplement the Katadyn PowerSurvivor 40E 1 GPH emergency watermaker. Fresh water is stored in two welded stainless steel tanks connected by a selection valve. Each tank has built-in baffles, electric level gauges and clean out plates. The pressure water system, equipped with a 12V water pump and accumulator tank provides hot & cold water to the galley.
