Sparkman and Stephens IW40.
Very nice. The ship has beautiful lines, has a very good and comfortable sailing behavior and is a fantastic sailor, ideal for making long comfortable sea voyages. This specimen is from 1978 and very well maintained. The ship is 100% up-to-date and ready for the next ocean voyage. All conceivable extras are on board and in fact everything has been replaced. For example, the quality of the sails is still very good, the heavy-duty rigging of 2007, the electricity has been completely replaced and the chartplotter is from 2014. The new engine installed in 2016 has only run for 55 hours. The S&S yachts were not really known for the beautiful interior. This interior has been completely professional replaced and very beautiful, efficient and comfortable.
