Broker's Comments

The Tripp 40 was designed by Bill Tripp, one of the foremost race boat designers of the 1990s This classic design still does well today. Fast and stable with a PHRF rating of 51, she will get you there quickly and has lots of room to store your gear for the fun once you arrive. Sleeps nine with settees that convert to pipe berths as well as two double berths.

Below is surprisingly well-appointed for such a competitive racer. Light and airy with opening ports and a cheery, light-finished interior.
New installed :New Shaft and Prop, "Fail Safe" Galvanic Isolator and 2 New batteries May 2013
