delmag and Dmarina,
The article and drawings are from SAILING DESIGNS 109 Contemporary Sailboats
Volume II.
Analysed by Robert H. Perry in Sailing Magazine.
This book is somehow twenty eight years old (1980) and probably not around anymore.
I will figure a way to scan the drawings and article and, either post them or email them to you.
Very glad I could help,
J.P.

Dmarina,
I have scanned the drawings and article of the Acapulco 40 and are sent to your email address.
They are large files and will need some manipulation from your end.
J.P.

Christian Van H,
CHALLENGER YACHT CORP. Wilmington. Cal. Production 1970 - 1980.
35' and 40'
Very different design. This Challenger series does not compare to the Acapulco 40 in any repect.
I am sending you the info on the Acapulco via email.

Hi John! Thanks so much for sending the info! As for the Challenger...the Challenger Anacapa 42 is the same exact hull as your Acapulco 40. The Acapulco yacht co. was started by Gary Powell, who bought the molds for the boat from challenger, who had bought the molds from San Pedro Boatworks. The Challengers were all center cockpit pilothouses, and Gary destroyed that deck mold and just used the "regular" deck. Thanks again, Chris
