“England’s answer to Sweden’s Hallberg-Rassy”

Is your idea of sailing to be out and never see another boat for months, or to visit villages and plantations or enjoy the crystal clear glacier waters in the Pacific North West. There are so many different cultures in the sailing world and Cambria is one such boat to give you the freedom to get you out there!

CAMBRIA is a centre cockpit blue-water cruising boat that is truly off-shore ready. CAMBRIA boasts the craftsmanship and luxury that is associated with the Westerly Ocean 43 custom build.  The spacious accommodation and off-shore capability of CAMBRIA make long voyages comfortable and safe. This fast and sea-kindly yacht is easily managed by a crew of two or single handed. A quick and responsive boat has the ability to get you out of trouble, whatever it might be. You can always slow down a quick boat but cannot speed up a slow one!

Every aspect of this beautiful rugged sailboat has been extremely well maintained and meticulously cared for by the current owners. Recent upgrades to a cost of $160,000 CAD include improvements on enhanced off-shore equipment; perfectly matched solar/electrical system and power source; “flick-of-a-switch” heating and cooling controls; seamless communication between electronics and navigation equipment; enhanced communication with Marine SSB running a Pactor modem; engine, transmission & shaft alignment and so much more.

Don’t miss the full walk-through video!

CAMBRIA is now up for sale and ready for new owners. If you are going offshore, you owe it to yourself to see what a fabulous yacht this is. Give me a call to arrange a personal viewing of this very well cared for, offshore vessel. You will be glad you did.
