2001 Jim Brown Searunner 40 Trimaran

2001 Searunner 40 for sale

Build 1992 to 2000 and launched in 2001. Build in marine ply & west system epoxy this must be one of the newest Searunner 40's out there. She was originally build as 'Sergeant Lewis' (the old building website in Oregon and I bought her from the 2nd owner in 2013 in BC/Canada. I upgraded and coastal cruised her for 2 1/2 years in Canada before sailing her all the way down to Panama where she is now for sale due to a changed work situation.

Upgrades done over the last couple of years include:
- 2014 Building a hard dodger and soft top combo that can seal of the center cockpit completely for sailing in cold or wet weather while being able take out all windows for ventilation & sunshade in the tropics (see pictures)
- 2015 Stripping mast to bare wood to check condition and sealing it with 3 coats of west system + several layers of AWL Grip paint

- 2018 New Raymarine Evolution Autopilot incl. typ 2 linear drive at steering quadrant (very silent and low power consumption) , old Raymarine wheel pilot used before still wired in as a back up if needed
- 2019 New DOMETIC CFX 40W compressor fridge/freezer box
- 2019 New 40 m galvanized HT anchor chain (not yet been in the water)

Mule (as new condition only used for downwind sailing in 15+ kn since 2015) heavy cloth genoa for inner stay or as heavy weather genoa for outer stay
Flying jib (as new condition and only used a few times ) Used together with staysail on outer stay for upwind beating in heavy winds
Storm Jib (used once)
