Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

1983 Bristol Custom 40

Current owner has had her since Jan of 2015 and was brought down from Tarpon Springs, Fl. This was the last of Bristols 39.1 hulls designed by Ted Hood.

The earth is 24,874 around the equator, and the seller has sailed 16,000 nautical miles in "Miaplacidus" since she has owned it so this is a tried and tested vessel. The owner is a very experienced sailor and if you notice photo #14 quite popular as she has been on the cover of a magazine and was used as marketing for the St. Petersburg/Clearwater area. If you live in the area, chances are you have seen her sailing before.

The vessel is powered by a 2001 Yanmar 3GM30 27hp engine with 678 hours; current owner bought the boat with just over 43 hours so she has used her a lot and there is plenty of life left. If you're doing the math in your head, I did verify that from the installation in 2001 to 2015 from which the vessel was purchased there were 43 hours put on the engine. Please note that access to the engine is the best I have ever seen, with the companionway steps lowered you have access to the entire engine as noted in the photos. No busted knuckles and/or curse words needed!

Please check the specs below for an entire inventory of what's included in the sale.

Hull and topsides all looked to be in very good condition. Seller has two complete sets of sails. 2 mainsails and 2 foresails as well as additional foresails and rigging. The cockpit is good size for this boat. A high-quality chair is located all the way aft and is definitely the best seat in the house for sun lovers.

Electronics are minimal, the vessel is equipped with a depth sounder and in the main salon there is a new VHF radio. Mounted in the companionway on a telescoping mount is a Garmin GPSmap 215 GPS and there is an auto-pilot, but it is currently not functional. The current owner uses an iPad with a Navionics app for navigation so feel free to add the instrumentation of your choice. The solar panel is mounted on the sturdy fiberglass hardtop.

Down the companionway stairs, you get a sense of how large her 12' beam really is and also notice her 6'2" of headroom throughout. Aft you have two quarter berths, in the photos, you can see they are used for storage, but they are very good size with port lights for natural lighting. In the main salon, you have opposing settees with a nice size table that folds down to port. Seller has newer covers for the cushions, and they were in very good condition.

Moving forward you have a nice size walk-through galley with a propane powered Force 10 3 burner cook top and stove. Propane tank is mounted in the cockpit for safety. Galley also features a large sink and a good amount of storage with a refrigerator. She has a total capacity of 200 gallons of freshwater so take your time cleaning the dishes and showering!!

Speaking of showering the head is massive!! It's located just to port of the galley and has a large sink, lots of storage and a Jabsco Vac-u-flush head. Hot and cold pressurized water system and a lot of natural lighting.

All the way forward to the V-berth you have a very large queen size mattress, with plenty of natural lighting and a good amount of storage.

Per the owner, "Miaplacidus is a thick hulled sailing machine - she runs smooth, sails great and sits down quickly in high seas. She makes a great vessel that's ready for long-range cruising a she's spacious enough to be an excellent live-aboard".

The sale also includes a 9.5ft all fiberglass dinghy with a 2hp 2-stroke Honda outboard.

Most of the current owner's 16,000 nautical miles have been on the west coast of Florida, Bahamas and Key West. Where will you take her?

Dinghy included: 9.5ft All fibergass and 2hp Honda outboard
