For Sale: Choate 40 Cruiser/Racer

Hi All, we're trying to sell our boat,Phantom . She's a CHOATE 40 beautiful cruiser/racer sloop built by Dencho Marine (California) in 1982, imported to Canada in 1990 and upgraded extensively since (major refit 1997-2003). A superbe sailing platform, her flush deck design makes getting around on deck a breeze. Very good hardware and hydraulics combined with a 60 inch wheel in a comfortable cockpit (not a racing pit) make sailing her a joy. The sail inventory is not excessive but complete, spinnaker gear included. Large Barient 32 3-speed winches serve as primaries, while each checkstay and halyard (4) has it's own S/T winch. Additional winches serve the foreguy, pole lift, and reef lines.

The interior features a dinette to port, pilot berth to starboard, with a settee and storage behind. Aft, behind a nav station and storage cubby are 4 pipe berths. The galley is central ahead of the mast and full width of the hull. A good, large icebox, propane range/oven and deep sink complement good storage in drawers and shelving. Forward of the galley is the head, hanging locker and large V-berth with storage and tankage under. A Teak and Holly sole throughout complete the cosy cabin with a propane fireplace. A large forehatch provides light and access to the forward cabin, and additional ventilation includes two smaller hatches midships.

A major refit was undertaken in 1997. The Pathfinder diesel engine was completely rebuilt in 2002-2003. This is a very good engine with great parts availability from either Pathfinder or any Volkswagen parts supplier. A new Hurth/ZF transmission was installed July 2009. She was hauled out, cleaned thoroughly and treated with 2 coats of new bottom paint (Micron CSC) in May 2008. Recent inspection by a diver confirmed the bottom is in good shape and zincs are 60%.

SPECIFICATIONS

LOA: 40 ft, LWL: 32.5 ft, BEAM: 12.5 ft, DRAFT: 7 ft, DISPLACEMENT: approx 16,500 lbs, ENGINE: 50hp 4 cylinder Pathfinder diesel, ENGINE HOURS: 2200 (750 since rebuild), TRANSMISSION: Hurth/ZF 150 V-drive (new), PROP: 3 blade Campbell Sailor

Past surveys and full/detailed specs available on request.

Let me know if you want more info. Please pass this along if you know others who might be interested.

thanks
Paul
