Here's a near-perfect live-aboard cruiser for a couple - and that's just what Bob Perry & the Saga Concept team had in mind when they introduced the Saga 43 in 1997. Over 55 Saga 43's are now cruising! Taking the lead from the shorthanded offshore racing fleets like the Whitbread and BOC around the world races, Saga opted to maximize waterline length to gain the desired interior space, and to judiciously pare weight, and retain a relatively narrow beam. It is a proven offshore concept with a strong scientific basis.

The result is the Saga 43, a more suitable and more comfortable offshore cruiser with a high range of positive stability and better overall seakeeping qualities than boats with extreme beam. The hull has an ultra-fine entry angle with low drag, and is therefore very easily driven through the water and chop with far less sail area required. That makes for less strain on the rig, lower sheet and winch loads, and most importantly, less sweat for the crew. The big bonus is that the Saga 43's longer waterline length translates to higher speeds under both power and sail than ordinary boats with the same LOA.

Neither a cutter nor a sloop in the usual sense, the rig has tandem roller furling units for the headsails. The rig is proportioned so that it does not require overlapping headsails for power when sailing close-hulled. The inner furler handles the self-tacking jib for windward work. A custom Harken traveler on the foredeck reduces tacking up a narrow channel to a mere turn of the wheel. After bearing away to a reach, the crew simply rolls out the special high clew reaching genoa on the outer furler to increase horsepower downwind. The jib is then furled out of the way.

This boat is a rare mix of speed and comfort in a great looking package. Revolutionary fast design by Robert Perry...this is a connoisseur's boat...a sailor's boat. Big sail plan + easily driven hull = a great light air boat. It’s a truly thrilling boat to sail! If you sail for pleasure there isn't another boat in its class that will delight the senses more than a Saga 43.

"The Saga 43... can be seen in cruising destinations just about anywhere in the world and is considered by many to be a real classic that will stand out with the Valiant 40 and Cal 40 as an example of a truly excellent cruising boat design." Blue Water Sailing Magazine 10/04

Our offering, "Moonstruck", has been well looked after and is well equipped and ready to go. With a watermaker, solar panels, dinghy and engine on davits, reverse cycle heat/AC, Dickerson 12,000BTU heater, SSB, 12v refrigeration, dual switchable Racors and much, much more there's not much to put on board besides yourself and go! If this sounds like the type of sailboat you have been dreaming about, she is certainly worthy of your inspection.
