"Evensong" has just come out of the shop with a gorgeous new paint job. Owner took the extra step to apply an epoxy primer first for a top shine paint finish. Keel has been touched up and awaits finish paint. She looks like a showroom yacht!
This classic Hinckley stowaway sloop rigged sailing yacht with stunning Jade Mist Green topsides and gleaming Mahogany & Teak brightwork was repowered in 2013 with only 331 hours. Lovingly cared for in top condition with many recent upgrades, she features a heavier centerboard keel with her main mast moved slightly aft with a shortened boom resulting in a mainsail with a higher aspect ratio and larger fore triangle. Hinckley Yacht in Southwest Harbor, Maine completely surveyed and detailed the yacht in December 2017 at a cost of over $10,000. Yacht Tenders of Round Pond, Maine just completed a bottom job and an electronics lead plate replacement in July this year. The iconic Bermuda 40 MK III has set the standard as the best "Modern Classic" cruising sailboat. "Evensong" is aggressively priced to sell so don't hesitate to see her. Made in Maine by skilled boat artisans, they don't come any finer...
"The Bermuda 40 is a quintessential example of Tripp's art and masterful eye for near perfect balance. I think it can be safely said that this boat has stood the test of time, and, although the design is now 40 years old, many people, myself among them, still consider the Bermuda 40 one of the most beautiful yachts afloat." Jack Horner for Boat U.S. Boat Review
