Broker notes
We are privileged to be listing Manitou, being one of the three famous 40’ C&C yachts, which were designed and built in Canada and were highly successful on the International race circuits.
This is a proud vessel, resplendent with a recent vinyl-wrap to topsides, powerful winches and a reliable engine - and still capable of winning races!

Now based in Exmouth, Manitou is well equipped with recent sails and sound rigging,
Many of the large winches are cross-linked, so can be operated from selected position, being an unusual feature nowadays.
With evident gear and equipment efficiency and ability to maintain really fast passage speeds, this could be an ideal fast cruiser for the experienced skipper with a small crew.

There is plenty of stowage space available and opportunity for developing a customised layout, which could possibly appeal to the long-distance sailor.
Interestingly, we do have experience in yacht fit-out and interior work, so would be able to manage and expedite any interior lay-out change/improvements should this be required.

Manitou has done many Atlantic crossings and will comfortably cruise at 8 to 9 knots - she is well-balanced, easy to reef and rewarding to sail.
She rates among the best of the competitive yachts of the past and is now an excellent cruiser at a competitive asking price £37,250 vat paid.
