This 1978 43' Hinckley Hood designed Sloop is an extremely well built world cruiser recently refurbished and ready to go cruising or racing today. Her sleek head turning looks scream Sexy, but out on the water with the sails out, she just Screams. She is number 12 out of 18 built from 1976 to 1981 and now showing in great condition with solid decks, new rigging and a new bottom. Lets begin with Henry R. Hinckley and Company quality building techniques (unmatched in the market) and Ted Hood design for cruising and racing long distance, hard to beat. She delivers the shoal draft needed to get into shallow anchorages at 4'6” with the addition of a centerboard making ocean passages fast and comfortable. With the low profile deck and cabin top, you will find that the interior offers 6'4” headroom throughout. The interior wood work is beautiful and offers tremendous storage capacity filling her 12'6” beam. Her fuel and water capacity allows for longer cruises with less stopping and the solar panels run the fridge and other 12V items. The 25,500 dry lb displacement with 11,500 lbs of lead ballast in a long fin keel with full skeg protected rudder makes her sea worthy, strong and able to sail on less heel when the centerboard is lowered giving her an 11'6” draft, great for increased stability and fast upwind sailing. The cockpit settees are almost 8' long for lounging or sleeping in comfort with deep storage lockers under the settees. With some new electronics and a desire to be excited at sea, this magnificent sailing vessel will take you anywhere you want to go in comfort and safety. The unique Hood designed electric in mast furling makes mainsail handling as easy as pushing a button. Since Moondance is the only 43 Hinckley Hood design available on the market, you should not hesitate to preview her ASAP as she will sell quickly. If you wish to set up an appointment for preview, call Barry at 954-873-1800 and we will get you on board.
If interested, the boat is located at a transferable live aboard dock in Fort Lauderdale!!!
