Designed by the legendary Laurent Giles, the Salar 40 is renowned for its offshore capability and clever layout. The central solid doghouse is both aesthetically pleasing, and provides exceptional protection from the elements. Whilst having the motoring capability of a motorsailer, this design is no slouch and the sailing performance is sure to impress even the most discerning yachtsman. This vessel is a good example of the design having spent its life in the stunning waters of Southern Tasmania. The original owner used the vessel to regularly compete in twilight and social racing with much success. The subsequent owners have cruised extensively around Tasmania and also commented on the excellent sea-keeping abilities of the vessel. This vessel now presents as an excellent opportunity to purchase a quality designed and built offshore cruiser at an exceptionally low price!
Stepping inside, the vessel has a warm and traditional feel. There is a large dinette to port with seating for 8 in comfort. Opposite is the well appointed galley. This features a large fridge and freezer, 4 burner gas stove with oven, gas hot water, and extensive storage. Forward is a private double cabin with adjacent bathroom. There are also two pilot berths aft and a single settee berth when additional accommodation is required. The remaining accommodation is in the private aft cabin accessed via the cockpit. This area features two large single berths and a full ensuite with toilet, shower, and vanity.
Outside the teak decks and varnished doghouse add to the charm of the vessel. This vessel also features an aft helm station which is ideal for enjoying sailing at its best on a fine day. "Princess seats" on the stern are the perfect space for crew to enjoy the views whilst sailing or relaxing at anchor. There is excellent access around the wide side decks and the raised bulwarks add to the feeling of security.
