Stevens Custom 40

The Stevens 40 designed by Sparkman and Stephens is the little sister to the popular Stevens 47. She has very good sailing qualities and is built to a high standard by Queen Long. The cutter rig provides a powerful but manageable sail plan, and is perfectly suited for short handed sailing. 
The interior arrangement has two staterooms. The solid fiberglass hull has molded non-skid, Airex-cored decks. The interior features a solid teak sole.

It is a proven design well suited for coastal and blue water cruising and has been equipped with two self-steering systems and completed and Atlantic crossing from New York in 2008.
All standing rigging replaced in 2007 and in mast furling unit rebuilt.

It is well suited for extended cruising. The interior is exceptionally spacious for a vessel of this size.

Thanks Scott.
They are great. I have put many miles her.
I'm going to be in Helsinki for quite some time and it's just more boat than I need these days.

Good evening!

What year is the boat?

Has it been actively sailed between 2009 and 2016 or has it been on the hard?

Is it currently in the water?

Hello Mike!

Sorry for the slow reply.
Yes, she has been sailed between 2009 and 2017.
Not too many miles in 2016, part of the reason it's time to sell.

Let me know how I can help.
