Broker's Comments

We are pleased to present this Tripp 40, described by the vendor as ‘a great inshore or offshore team boat’ that is ‘great fun’ to sail. She is well equipped and in 2009 the keel was re-worked back to its original specification. She competed in the OSTAR 2009 and is referenced in Stuart Quarrie's book on offshore sailing. If you are looking for lots of great, fast sailing then this is the race boat for you! Total sail area is 74.71m2 on a fractional rig with rod rigging (2009).
