1978 Fuji 40

Madisonville, Louisiana

$59,000

If you are looking for a true Blue Water Cruiser, with both a roomy interior AND a sea kindly motion and classic (read "beautiful") design, you should take a look at this one!  Designed by the legendary Sparkman & Stevens Naval Architects, she sports a long fin keel with a rudder hung on a full skeg.  Under sail you can expect a rock steady and stable ride.  Easy to balance translates to easy to trim and means less work for your auto-pilot (Yes, she has one!).  In rough weather, she is made to plow through steep chop, rather than tossing about or grinding to a halt.  Her high freeboard means she's a dry boat too.  She has a surprisingly large aft cabin -with standing room- even though she's an aft cockpit boat.  Headroom in parts of this boat are 6'10"!  The hull is thick, hand-laid fiberglass up to the toe-rail, the ballast is encapsulated iron, and the decks are foam cored.  She has been nicely kept and has many upgrades, see the Full Specifications for details.
