1976 Vindo 40

17 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

This nicely kept cruiser is as comfortable to sail as it is pleasing to the eye. A well balanced rig and full keel with a cutaway forefoot produce ideal sailing characteristics. Rich mahogany and teak inside and out make for warm, comfortable surroudings.

Upgrades include recent electronics and a Yanmar 2GM20F (new in 1994).

Traditional layout below includes v-berth forward. Next aft is drawer storage and hanging locker to starboard. Oppoosite to port is an enclosed head with toilet, pull-out lavatory outboard and solar vent overhead. The main cabin features a bulkhead mounted oil lamp, u-shaped settee and free standing table to port. The table drops converting the settee into a nicely sized berth for two. In addition, the port settee’s backrest hinges up to make an additional sea berth for one. The salon’s starboard side features a built in, ever popular Cole “1655” fireplace and settee. The settee backrest folds down to become a wide single or cozy double berth. The boat’s galley area is next aft at the companionway.
