1974 Bristol 40 Yawl Sailboat in Sausalito, California

Stock #115101

MOTIVATED SELLER! Roller furling is BRAND NEW! Winter cover included! Two drifter sails come with this boat.

The owner has sailed the SF Bay extensively and reports this boat sails upwind better than any boat he's competed with.

This Bristol 40 Yawl was designed by Ted Hod and is a Center Board version of this model. With a 4'6" minimum draft to a 10'4" maximum when swing keel is fully extended. This means you can get close to shore and then have enough ballast to handle strong winds.

With the Bristol 40, Ted Hood created a sleek classic that still draws compliments and admiration nearly 50 years after the first boats slipped into the water.

She has three sails, a 120 foresail on a roller furler, the mainsail with two reef points and the mizzen for the extra power. Auxiliary power is provided by a 33 horse power Westerbeke diesel.

What Sailing Magazine said

"The (Bristol 40) sails quite well in moderate conditions, especially off the wind. The hull shape is designed for reaching, and the 40 has won its class in the Marion to Bermuda race twice."

What the Bristol brochure said

"The most discriminating cruising families will be delighted with the Bristol 40. This auxiliary keel sloop measures up to the most exacting criteria. Check the Standard Equipment list against those of similar sized yachts. You owe it to yourself to see and sail (and own) one of these sleek beauties!"
