A recent price reduction makes VATICAN II an exceptional value for a pedigree cruiser/racer. She is turnkey ready to embark on extended cruising. A one owner yacht custom built for cruising she has received outstanding care. The hull and deck are virtually perfect as are the mechanical and electrical components. The equipment list is outstanding (including a near new set of sails) and the level of maintenance is unprecedented in this broker’s experience. The 40 is one of C&C’s best designs…powerful upwind and fast off the wind, she is a wonderful sailing machine. The centreboard design is robust and reliable and permits shoal draft cruising while providing remarkable upwind ability. Compared to any boat in this price range VATICAN II represents outstanding value.
VATICAN II has been in the care of her original owner since she was ordered from C&C in 1981. An Incredible level of upgrades and on-going maintenance characterizes every aspect of this flawless performance cruiser. Cruising amenities include a little used custom ordered Novurania dinghy, outboard lift/davit, newer lower amperage 12V holding plate refrigeration, perfect low hours Yanmar diesel, newer Profurl headstay, and fully refinished hull and deck.
VATICAN II can only be fairly compared to a fully equipped 3 or 4 year old vessel and buyers should not be dissuaded by her calendar year. Customized cabinetry, upgraded electronics, newer 120amp Balmar alternator, oversized autopilot, immaculate canvas, hydraulic backstay adjuster, newer inverter charger, and much more add to a very impressive package. New Force 10 stove with oven and nearly new water cooled, 12V holding plate refrigeration/freezer with digital dual thermometers and large double stainless sinks highlight this important area. Detailed owner records indicate all maintenance and upgrades.
Customized to owner order when built, VATICAN II is one of the most complete cruisers Harris & Ellis Yachts has had the privilege to list.
