The Bob Perry-designed Panda 40 is a real head turner in any harbor. She is far more sleek and graceful than the typical traditional cruiser. But unlike a Hans Christian or Tayana, her performance under sail is truly astounding! She has the solid feel that you would expect from a full-keel cruiser, but you will be shocked to see speeds of 7.5 to 8.0 knots with 15 knots true wind! She is an absolute pleasure to sail.
The interior of the Panda 40 is a true masterpiece. The Tashing yard is known as one of the finest yacht builders in the world. The level of fit and finish of the interior is beyond any other Builder. This Panda 40 has a teak overhead, a feature that was eliminated due to cost on later models. The layout is practical and spacious.
After months of major upgrades, her owner has moved from sail to power. Offered at far less than has been recently invested, she is a great value for someone looking for that very special boat!
