Greetings and welcome aboard the CF Dan.

Designed by Ted Carpentier, the ACAPULCO 40 is apparently the same hull as the earlier CHALLENGER ANACAPA 42. The molds were purchased by Acapulco Yachts from Challenger Yachts.

I dont think that is what it is. From everything that i have read about Acapulco they didnt build a pilot house version. It looks really close to the challenger but the front glass is a little different.

Hi there, the hull and shear line do look like the Acapulco 40. I blessedly have the first one ever made. Can you tell me a little more about the boat? Can you post more pictures?
