Broker Remarks

This 1971 Salar 40 has a traditional long keel and is a classic yacht capable of long distance cruising. She is
powered by a 72 hp Perkins diesel engine which was removed along with the gearbox and fully reconditioned in
2021. Mast and boom were resprayed in 2021, all standing rigging was replaced in 2021, The addition of Solar
panels, a lithium battery system, new davits and a Scanmar Autohelm self steering make her a very capable
cruising yacht. "Lonehort" (Irish Registered) has been very well maintained and if you are looking for a lovingly
restored Salar 40 you need to see this one.

Broker's Comments

"Lonehort" is a classic long distance cruising yacht and has been lovingly cared for by her two Irish owners since 2003

She is well equipped and is in outstanding condition for her year.

The addition of furling sails, bow thruster, electric windlass, self-tailing winches, autopilot and chart plotter ensure easy handling in safety.

Living aboard with central heating, hot water, two heads and a shower certainly adds to her comfortable cruising!!!!!

This is a unique opportunity to purchase a much loved boat!
