Not all Saga 43s are alike. I’ve seen, sailed and sold enough of them to know that some are a lot better than the others. After very recent careful inspection of this Saga 43 named Cecil I can safely say that Cecil is heads above the rest of the fleet. , plus also knowing the owner/seller and the way that he addressed this good offshore sailing vessel by making her even Her original owner hired the Designer, Bob Perry, to improve the boat’s build quality and even some of the design elements. Here is a short list of items that make her even better! First she has a deeper heavier keel for more stability and windward work. There is extra grid work completed aft and forward to the mast base which reinforces the structural bulkhead making the boat stiffer that sister ships. After the initial modifications the owner spent tons of money on the boat over the years. The mast was pulled/painted and rewired. In 2015 all new electronics were added. Also in 2015 a new generator was installed. There is Espar diesel heater aboard as there is full AC/heat throughout. Her sails are all 2014 and recently refurbished in 2019. Cecil’s interior has absolutely no water damage anywhere. All owners of their boats love their boats, but what I’m saying is that some owners just like and can spend more money on their boats than most others. This is the case with Cecil.

The Saga 43 is designed by Robert H. Perry, and you know he designed the Valiant 40 racer cruiser and remarkable BOC solo round the world racer back in the 1970s. In the early nineties, Bob designed the Saga 43 which is a very serious performance cruiser meant to keep sailing long after other cruisers have turned on the engine. When so many cruisers end up motoring to their destination, the Saga 43 is really a sailors' performance cruising boat.

Indeed, the Saga 43 is a very well thought out design. At 43 feet LOA, everything on her is manageable. She is a purposeful boat with all of the quality, strength, and equipment necessary to make it a dependable cruising platform. Bob Perry definitely incorporated many things into the design of the Saga, using his forward thinking ideas of his Starbuck, Icon and Foxfire designs. All have the plum bow, all have lots of waterline and all are easily driven hull forms. Just look at similar designs as Chuck Paine’s Apogee series, or Steve Dashew's Deerfoot/Sundeers or Schumacher's Outbound; all are very similar in so many ways. Fast, mean and lean sailing machines. Nothing cute, nothing fancy on them; they are just straight forward sailing machines; all business.

The narrow hull of the Saga 43 has lots of waterline and is very easily driven through the water and which requires far less sail area to move her. That makes for less strain on the rig, lower sheet and winch loads, and most importantly, less sweat for the crew. Coupled with its 20000 lb. displacement, the SAGA 43 will require no more effort to sail than the average 38 footer. But the big bonus is that the SAGA 43's longer waterline length translates to higher speeds under both power and sail than ordinary boats with the same LOA. In fact the 43 performs more like a 50 footer with a dynamic waterline length of over 41 feet when underway. She has a massively over-built tubular stainless steel bowsprit, near vertical stem profile, wall sided hull, and tall deckhouse which all helps to give the boat a rugged, secure, and business-like air. Plus there are some ideas incorporated into her from the BOC racers, especially the sail and rig layout, which enables just one person sail her fast, very fast. This design is fast on all points of sail and is able to carry her crew anywhere that they choose the sail to. A modern design, inside and out, underwater and also above. One will be happy with everything that this great world voyager has to offer. 

This fast comfortable properly equipped and cared for bluewater voyager is seriously for sale. If this is the type of boat that you’re looking for, give Cecil your serious consideration. She will not disappoint. Call Now!
