Slocum 43

     GREAT DEAL FOR SOME LUCKY SAILOR READY TO GO CRUISING. World-class offshore cruiser. The knowledgeable and meticulous owners of this Slocum 43 have spent countless hours and over $120K on equipment and upgrades preparing this boat to go cruising, its ready now to sail anywhere.  Sellers have kept her in great shape, sparing no time or expense on maintenance and repairs.All equipment both original and added are in top shape and good working order. 

Naval Architect Stan Huntingford has incorporated into this sturdy double-ender both seaworthiness and ample interior space that offers steady and comfortable as well as safe cruising. Below the water line the hull shows a fine entry with a long cutaway forefoot followed by an efficient and modern keel and a deep profile skeg-hung rudder just forward of a tapered stern section. This design combination readily separates the Slocum 43 from other traditional yachts and offers ease of handling and lively, safe performance.
This yacht is a perfect example of a classic offshore design and is one of the warmest, roomiest and most comfortable interiors available in a 43'cruising yacht. Incorporating a tumble home stern, bulwarks, dorades, opening ports with screens, oversized rigging and quality construction, this yacht is a modern classic.
