The Bristol 40 is a high quality, solidly built boat that has withstood the test of time. Designed by Ted Hood and built by Bristol Yachts in Bristol Rhode Island, Cruising World magazine ranked the B40 in its 40 all-time best monohulls saying: With her prominent overhangs, sweet sheer line, low freeboard, undistorted hull shape and narrow beam, this iconic 40-footer set high marks for seaworthiness and style,

Agape is a beautiful example of this classic yacht. The current owners sailed the Chesapeake aboard her for many years, while raising their family. However, if your sights are set across the ocean, the B40 is capable of taking you anywhere in the world. Designed with blue water cruising in mind, the B40 is a stable and well-mannered boat that has completed many ocean crossings.
