Carter 39 sailing yacht for sale. Built in 1973 and designed by Dick Carter as an offshore racer. Samphire participated in the 1975 Fastnet and finished a credible 25th.. She also won a three peaks challenge and had the keel adapted from a fin keel to a hydraulic controlled centreboard. Samphire's green top sides and flush decks and nice lines create an attractive yacht that will turn heads wherever she goes.
On deck, Samphire features twin steering wheels, two cockpits, all sail control lines are led aft, and the decks are flush. She can be sailed short handed if required but will also provide a good turn of speed for the enthusiastic sailer.
Below decks, is a beamy saloon with u shaped settee to port, twin berths in the saloon to starboard, and aft berth and generous double up front. The tumblehome hull shape creates a large space in the saloon area. However, it is fair to comment the head room is approximately 5ft 10.
The boat is presented in good condition, however there are a few minor areas which could benefit from enhancement, for example, some parts of the headlining are falling. The boat has heating but no hot water.
Samphire is an attractive boat, solidly built and overall presents well.
