Tripp Designed Bermuda 40 Twin

Engine/Fuel Type:
Single / diesel
Located In:
Amelia Island, FL
Hull Material:
Current Price:
US$ 119,900 

NEW PRICE--GREAT CLASSIC! LOVINGLY MAINTAINED, just re-launched with new bottom job and new cutlass bearing.  She has the same design features as the classic Tripp-designed Hinckley Bermuda 40. Some argue that this Bill Tripp design is superior to the B40 due to its longer waterline, wider beam, greater sail area, and more powerful auxiliary engine. "Chessel," (of the Chesapeake Bay) is a centerboard yawl with sweeping overhangs. She draws 4.2' with the centerboard up, for cruising the shallows, and 8.82' with the board down for serious offshore passages.

Chessel has been professionally maintained and is in beautiful condition. The nonskid on her deck has just been refinished, her canvas cleaned, and she is turn-key. Her design is well conceived, with ample storage, generous tankage, and an 8 foot centerboard keel and attached rudder with prop in aperture. This, combined with traditional lines, a beautiful mahogany interior, strong construction, wide decks and a split rig, makes this professionally maintained updated classic a truly unique beauty. Her new owner will be an exceptionally lucky sailor.
