2008 Friendship Yachts 40
Owner says "SELL NOW" Price reduced to $849,000 The Friendship 40 is a work of art designed by Ted Fontaine and crafted at the Austral yard in Whangarei, New Zealand. The design is targeted to the upscale sailor who no longer has the need for crew and multiple staterooms, but desires to continue sailing on a beautiful design which is easily handled by 1 or two people. The overall length and beam allows for extremely comfortable overnighting, and the very generous uncluttered cockpit offers an exhilarating opportunity for 6 or more day sailors to enjoy the exceptional performance and versatility of a shoal draft center boarder, or the 9ft. board down draft sailing to weather. Absolute unrivaled quality is synonymous with the Friendship Yacht Company. Incorporating many elements from his large custom yachts, designer Ted Fontaine has created the FRIENDSHIP 40, a luxury daysailer whose concept has been imitated, but by no means equaled. The expert craftsmanship and careful attention to detail display the superyacht quality to which each Friendship 40 has been built. Time honored methods of hand-craftsmanship and a fine eye for classic boat building are apparent at 1st glance of this boat. She is truly stunning. Not until you step aboard can you realize what a fantastic sailing vessel has been created. A large, powerful rig for performance, coupled with the ease of a single-handed set-up, the Friendship 40 sails with a near effortless hand at the helm. An in-boom furling main with hydraulic sheet buttons at the helmsman's feet and an electric roller furling genoa with electric winches at either side of the wheel, make it possible to sit back and soak in the pure and simple joys of sailing.SCRAM is in perfect condition with very low engine hours. She is 1 of the most luxuriously outfitted Friendship 40's built. She has every option available, including generator with hydraulically lifting cockpit sole for access, radar overlay on the GPS plotter, electric jib furler, captured electric main sheet winch and custom Sunbrella boat covers.
