The 40 is a lovely yacht. Super spacious, light and airy. The forward galley
layout is awesome.
The later ones had some nice changes, especially the change to island beds in aft cabins. No longer climb in through a frame.
We purchased new last year into Moorings. Our previous was a 44 with Sunsail and was in good condition after 5 years.
We will get half our money
back over the next 5 years and come out with a relatively cheap
6 year old boat. We plan to keep this one to cruise
We went with the 3 cabin
as we felt it will get less use.
We will use her regularly so we will be able to keep an eye on the maintenance
