1986 Sigma 41

Vixen is a 41 ft Sigma 41 built by Marine Projects, Plymouth, England, in 1986 with a Certificate of Hull Construction and designed by David Thomas who designed many racing and offshore sailboats. Approximately 100 Sigma 41s were built with most having a deep draft and teak decks. The original owner deleted the teak decks and later had a keel-centerboard installed which was done in Florida under the supervision of a surveyor thus giving a draft of 5 ft up to 9.5 ft board down.
Previous owners upgraded and maintained Vixen in a first condition as very knowledgeable sailors.
The prior owner painted Vixen Stars and Stripes blue along with the topsides painted tan and off-white. Air-conditioning and a 5.5 kw generator were installed along with carbon fiber laminate sails. The owner was very sucessful in local regattas.
Vixen has had very light use with no accidents, chartering, live aboards, with most sailing in Florida and the Bahamas.
Vixen is very sound with excellent sails and a low hour Perkins diesel with only 1550 hours since major overhaul. She is ready to go cruising!
Extensive equipment and spares are included as is a dinghy, 4hp outboard, two stand up touring paddle boards with covers and paddles.
Vixen can be seen at the Key Biscayne Yacht Club at any time.

Re: 1986 Sigma 41

Thanks Sanibel Sailor!
Only selling because of wife’s illness.
I am disappointed that not many responses so may lower asking price or give it to a broker so it can be listed on Yacht World which is where I found her five years ago. Brock Johnson said he would answer any questions also. We raced in the Abaco Race week wining 3 out of 4 races.
I guess I need to be patient!
Good luck to you and good sailing.
