Among the last Bristol 40s built, SPINDRIFT has been lovingly cared for by her current owners who purchased her in 2004. Each winter she has benefited from equipment replacements or notable maintenance projects and along with indoor storage for eight months of the year presents herself as a much newer vessel. Having been retrofitted with a Hoyt self tending jib boom, she is both a dream to sail and easily handled at that!

She has been put on the market at a sensible price and should be very attractive for those desiring a well kept traditionally lined vessel of nice pedigree.
