SELLER CAN'T SAIL HER. THIS FAST POWERFUL SAILING YACHT IS CRUISE EQUIPPED AND READY. SHE'S AN INCREDIBLE DEAL AND A WONDERFUL OFFERING.
This is an amazing performance cruiser with Bob Perry's easily driven hull shape and unique solent rig. This Saga 43 is a sailors' sailboat and Bold Spirit is especially rigged properly and ready to sail! This one-owner boat is really special. Bob Perry consulted during the build and the list of special features is long. Call us to learn more about this special Saga 43.
The Saga 43 was Bob Perry's first implementation of some of the most modern concepts in sailing vessel design with the plumb bow, long waterline, and extented swim transom. Indeed it is a fast sailing boat.
Our offering Bold Spirit is quite unique in that she is a one owner boat. Her owners were experienced performance sailors and wanted their perfect swift dream boat. These original owners even consulted Bob Perry and made some additions to make her sail even better. Bob said you could never go wrong with added draft and so hull no. 5 has a few more inches of draft specified at 6'9" instead of 6'3". Additionally there are other special features and upgrades which have resulted in a vessel that is designed to sail well and sail far.
