    About this Sailboat:

    Tradewinds T40 Performance Cruiser Sailboat

    “Khulula” (To Run Free in Zulu) is a 40ft Performance Cruiser sailboat designed by Chad Turner of Costa Mesa, California. Chad designed many Swans and Khulula has both the incredibly sleek lines and phenomenal sailing performance of a Swan 40. We have not come across a quicker 40ft cruising boat, which still is extremely comfortable to sail and live aboard. After owning the boat for 4.5 years and completing a circumnavigation of the world in her, we need are looking for someone to take her back out to sea.

    All items have been reinforced and strengthened for serious offshore cruising. Khulula has just undergone a major refit after completing circumnavigation in 2010.
