Owner's Comments of the Saga 40
Solid GRP Hull and external Cast Iron keel.
GRP sheathed Epoxy encapsulated timber deck and superstructure.
Teak trimmed throughout, giving all the appearance and charm of a timber yacht without the maintenance.
The hull was epoxy coated from new below the WL and retains its original Gelcoat topsides.
The vessel has been extensively maintained by its one owner from new, and underwent a substantial refit in 98/99 with the renewal of skin fitting/sea cocks, propshaft and couplings, some standing/ running rigging, canvas work, all coamings and adjacent areas of deck.
The existing teak decking was removed 1999 and the deck reglassed and painted with non slip deck paint.
All the original Drawings, specification and instruction manuals for the equipment are available.
