Gypsy Lady is one of the latest model B40's on the market. She has only had two owners.
Here is your chance to own one of the most sought after and iconic sailboats ever built. The Bermuda 40 is one of Bill Trip's most celebrated and cherished designs. These classic sailing yachts helped establish the Hinckley Company as a premier American boat builder. She will turn heads everywhere she goes with style and grace. 203 of these custom B40's were built from 1959 to 1991.
Her owner prefers the low maintance involved with unfinished exterior teak. The exterior wood is currently in its natural silver state, and her original light blue decks are increadibly solid. She is basically appointed for day-sailing use, but could easily be updated for cruising.
This yacht is equiped with the optional interior layout that features a dedicated chart table in the aft starboard quarter of the salon.

The companionway ladder is removable in order to gain access to the engine compartment. There is a large u-shaped dinette with a drop-leaf teak table just forward to Port. Opposite of the dinette is a slide out transom and pilot berth to starboard. Moving forward you will find a large private head to port, and a large hanging locker to starboard.

Gypsy Lady is a solid late model Bermuda 40. Much of the vessel is still original equipment. Her owner of the past 10 years has mainly day sailed her. She is in need of some interior and exterior work to get her back to Hinckley standards.
With much sadness, he has decided it is time to downsize and pass Gypsy Lady onto a new owner. Now is your chance to own the boat you have always dreamt of. You could be the envy of the anchorage when you drop the hook on board this beautiful classic yacht.
