Broker's Comments

This is a really beautiful example of the much revered and great passage making Laurent Giles designed boat. This particular boat was on the stand at the 1972 London Boat Show and was first launched in the spring of 72'.

She has had 4 owners from new and was originally Part 1 registered. Last anti-fouled Sep 2019.

The owner has looked after this boat impeccably over the 7 years that he has owned her but they are now planning on buying a Narrowboat and exploring the UK inland waterways, so a part exchange for a nice 57ft Narrowboat may be of interest.

This boat has a very comprehensive inventory and has plenty of light airy living space that would suit both live aboard and or families looking for a nice safe go anywhere boat.

The boat has just undergone a full osmosis treatment by Jotun Paints (September 2019) using all of their Osmosis products through to Jotun Anti Foul.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Salar 40 has been personally photographed and viewed by Paul of Boatshed Lancashire. Click here for contact details.
