1978 Formosa 41 ketch

6 October, 2011 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

For sale is a Formosa 41. Not a normal leaky teaky as most of them are called. Her deck is fiberglass, no teak that leaks all the time. Nice and beatiful inside and out. Pretty woodwork on the inside.
Her rigging is updated with newer standing rigging and aluminum masts intead of the old wooden ones. LOA 53′.
Huge lazarette underneath the aft cockpit. Going forward into the main companionway hatch and intothe galley to starboard and a dinette/double berth to port. Steping down and forward is the salon with settees/bunks to either side with water storage underneath each(60 gal on either side, 120 total), with another table that folds up in middle of salon, which is also where the engine housing is. Fuel tank(60 gal) underneath salon floorboards. Moving forward, to starboard is owners cabin, and head to port with a seperate shower stall. Forward is the v berth with one bunk to port and a big hanging locker to stbd. Forward is the chain locker. The boat is a heavy displacement one with a full keel.that means stability, confidence and safety at sea. But some people argue that this type of boat is slow and hard to maneouvre. She is slow, but thats why sailors have sailboats not powerboats. As far as maneuverability, she is stiff but you can master her. My slip is a tight fit, but I can get her in and out with no problem.
Currently living on boat, but selling since wife doesnt want to be on the boat, so I have to get a house instead.
