Broker's Comments

This unique Willard 40 Pilothouse Motorsailer was custom-built for the owner of Willard Yachts. It would make a very comfortable live aboard or ocean cruiser.

Belowdecks the main salon is very open with lots of light coming through the large windows. There is a 270 degree view from the salon. The two cabins are spacious as well as very private from each other. Both cabins have their own dedicated heads. The aft cabin has lots of room with seating and lounging area. The galley is separate enough to be out of the way yet still close enough to be included in any conversation in the main salon.

This yacht is a fine example of good solid construction and is built to last.
