Meticulously maintained by the current owner, who has had her since new, Sandale presents as an almost brand new boat.

Sandale was one of the first Bavaria 40s with twin wheels and a drop/lowering transom, providing an open cockpit with great flow-through from the coach house to the large swim platform/dinghy dock and davits at the stern.

She is well set up for cruising, day sailing or weekends away with 3 spacious cabins and 2 bathrooms, and is easily shorthanded by a solo sailor but large enough for a couple or family.

All sail handling, reefing and furling is easily managed from the cockpit, with in-mast furling for the mainsail making quick sail adjustment easy, and the 'German sheeting' system for the mainsheet provides ready control from the helm.

This very well presented Bavaria 40 enjoys teak cockpit floors and seats, and inside boasts excellent ventilation and natural light from extensive hatches throughout the vessel - 8 opening hatches in the roof with roller blinds, and 6 opening side ports with curtains.

Sandale had a full engine service and rebuild in 2020 including servicing and rebuilding injectors, a stripped down and serviced heat exchanger, replacement of the exhaust manifold, valve adjustment and reset, and compression testing of the engine.

An extensive refit was also completed in 2019/20 ready for extended cruising, including new standing rigging, new lithium batteries and a new Raymarine Axiom chartplotter and AIS. A full list of all work undertaken is available upon request.

Recently returned from 4 months cruising the boat is ready to go again - fully fitted out and not a cent to spend. A safety survey and risk audit was also conducted in 2020 - copy available for review.
