Class40 Express 40 For Sale A Vendre

Provisional details:
'Livewire' is a 1st generation Owen Clarke Design, Express 40. Launched in 2008, she has been lightly raced. These early production Owen/Clarke Class 40's have a  good track record of race results including class wins in the 2010 Two Handed Round Britain and Ireland yacht race and a 4th place in the 2013 Transat Jacques Vabre. Ideal racer cruiser internal layout allows this racing yacht to function as not only a very capable vintage category Class 40 but also as a comfortable and very fast cruiser with separate forward heads and double berth sleeping cabin. 

The transom hung rudders and on deck retracting carbon bowpole maintains the simplicity concept for this type of Class 40. Quick upwind in light to medium airs and holds her own downwind. Realistic asking price.
