“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 adventures waiting for you. Cambria is one such boat to give you the freedom to get you out there!
This is a centre cockpit blue-water cruising boat that is truly off-shore ready. The Ocean 43 is a Ron Holland design and boasts the craftsmanship with a luxury that is associated with his mega yacht ideas. The centre cockpit layout creates a fabulous aft master cabin. 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 you can single hand her when needed. A quick and responsive boat that has the ability to get you out of trouble fast. 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 include improvements on enhanced off-shore equipment; perfectly matched solar/electrical system; “flick-of-a-switch” heating and cooling controls; seamless communication between electronics and navigation equipment; enhanced communication with Marine SSB running a Pactor modem; Very recent engine tuning including transmission & shaft alignment and so much more.
