2008 Open Class 40 for sale

40 ft
Askøy, Norway

The boat was built in 2008 and has many good results in national and international regattas under its former name “Solo”.

The boat is a class 40 regatta boat, one of the world’s most popular classes for ocean sailing with its own class in the largest regattas in France and England as well as separate regattas just for this type of boat. Although the boat is now a few years old, it has proven itself well, and there are several regattas where older Class 40 boats have their own class. The boat is also fully usable inside, but we have only used it in slightly larger and longer regattas.

The boat is built according to class rules and, among other things, set up with 2 x 750l water ballast and carbon rig.

Sailing such a boat and learning to master the power and speed such a boat performs is a fantastically fun experience and if you have not been in this type of boat before, you will get a lot of new things to brush up on.

The boat has been in storage throughout the corona period. After a summer of various reviews of equipment, instruments, engine and sails, the boat is now ready for new owners.
