    Model: 40 Bermuda

    Type: Yawl Cruising Sailboat

    Engine Details: Inboard - Gas


    UNBELIEVABLE!  And that is not even the right word to describe this timeless classic that has been lovingly cared for by the current owners.  If you are looking for a sailboat with extreme character that will turn heads in any location, SKIMMER is the one to consider.

    Built by the renowned Hinckley company in 1966 she features solid fiberglass construction with additional reinforced laminations in all stern areas.  The deck is balsa cored set in a 6” flange which is fiber glassed into the hull and bolted to form a deck-hull joint.  Non-skid is molded into the deck.  

    In 2006 a marina in Oriental, NC had two boats catch fire near Skimmer.  Although not involved with fire, Skimmer was close enough that masts fell onto her deck as well as some heat damage to the boat exterior.  She was taken to Marine Tooling Technology in High Point, NC and underwent a 2-year refit to include repairs to the damaged areas but also upgrades to newer boating standards.  The workmanship is undeniable and you would never even know there was ever damage.  She is standing tall and will challenge a surveyor to find any discrepancies.  All invoices for repairs are available for review at survey.

    Beautiful Flag Blue hull, white topsides and high gloss varnished teak make the exterior shine.  The interior has been updated with beautiful fabrics, solid surface countertops, and varnished mahogany wood work.  Absolutely no disappointments on this one!
