1978 Custom Caribic 40Enquire About This Yacht
This yacht has been ashore for about four years by now, the owner has repainted the hull and made good efforts at tidying up the yacht. It needs new sails but the reliable and quiet 72 hp engine from Mercedes, installed in August 2004 and a new Italian-made gearbox in 2007, has had routine servicing.
She has a beautiful hull form, encapsulated keel, and no blisters whatsoever.
The quality interior fit-out includes lots of attractive Walnut wood and a comfortable saloon table, which can be easily converted to a large double bed for any overnight guests. That is surrounded by a large 'U" shape settee that can easily seat six people.
The excellent galley features a gas stove and oven with a double stainless sink and generous counter top space and lots of storage.
