Used Vista 40 Aft Cabin Boat For Sale 29 pictures

Boat Description

The Vista 40 is an easily handled size boat with a very generous and efficiently designed interior. Magic was 209 of the Vista40 built by Kha Shing Taiwan builder of Albin Trawlers and other similar boats in the latter 1980s.

Magics 141 beam allows space for comfort on board and safety during deck work. And, its smaller 399 length saves on dock fees and the equipment and efforts to tie up. Inside, the 10x10 salon has no built-in furniture so you can use it your way, although furniture is included. Outside, there are 18 wide side decks and 37 railings so going forward or handling dock lines is safe and easy. At the dock, the 10x14 covered aft deck, with new canvas, provides lots of space for relaxation, and for storage of deck and dock lines and safety gear. While traveling, the upper helm is large enough to sit 5 to 6 people in cushioned comfort.

Powered by twin Volvo Diesel main engines with low hours, Magic has the benefit of numerous service updates under the present owners. Away from the dock, electric needs are provided by a 6Kw Northern Lights generator (about 1996), recently serviced and updated.

Magic was purchased in Charleston SC, and cruised to Lake Ontario and back to central Florida via the Erie and Lake Champlain canals. For the past five years it has been cruised on the East coast of Florida during the winter, and parked in Brunswick GA in the hurricane season. Magic is perfect for doing the Great Loop or coastal cruising. She is cruise ready just cast off and go!
