DESCRIPTION:
A perfect bluewater cruising yacht! The Angelo Lavranos Crossbow is a lesser-known design but a modern classic, comparable to a Moody, Bowman or Tayana. Built in 1990 in South Africa, "Adamastor" is a sturdy centre-cockpit yacht with a Bermudan sloop rig and graceful lines. This well proven and much-loved boat has been maintained and sailed extensively, crossed several oceans and served as a family home for the current owners who sailed her 30,000 miles from the UK. She features a surprisingly spacious layout for a yacht this size which is both practical and well designed for comfort.

This Crossbow 40 has been improved over the years and is well set up as a liveaboard or long-distance cruiser. She handles easily, taking on all weathers; she sails efficiently and balances well, something that makes her Hydrovane self-steering system even more effective. "Adamastor" has graced the front cover of sailing magazines internationally, as one of her current owners is a prolific sailing journalist. As they have cruised extensively offshore the boat is exceptionally well-equipped and includes an impressive inventory of substantial gear and comprehensive spares, which makes this a lot of boat for the price. The engine is a Yanmar, known for their reliability and solid, workhorse performance.

The boat has undergone three periods of major works during the current ownership (in 2023,2016 and 2011) along with a good standard of routine upkeep and upgrades. The other owner is an Architect and it's clear that considerable time, effort and money have gone into maintaining it. This is a superb bluewater yacht, presented in a good condition and is turnkey ready for you to go out cruising.

DESIGN:
Designed by Angelo Lavranos, a most respected naval architect who worked for both Sparkman and Stevens and also Bruce Farr and built by Ocean Bound Yachts in Capetown, South Africa. Knowledgeable sailors rate Lavranos's designs as some of the world's best cruising boats. His objective was to create a safe and sturdy family boat for prolonged liveaboard cruising. He describes the design as high volume, medium displacement to ensure maximum safety, comfort and sea kindliness. Just 23 hulls were built of this exclusive model, each with unique fit-outs, none which maximise the internal space as efficiently as "Adamastor", which was hull number 16. She was designed and built to withstand the southern seas and is very strong, combining a unique blend of aesthetic design, engineering, and bluewater experience. She is an offshore sailor's dream and must be seen to be appreciated.

OWNERS COMMENTS:
We have sailed the boat for over 12 years now and we've loved every minute. We've maintained her carefully, never skimping on repairs or avoiding upgrades (take a look at the detailed spec below). It's time for us to move on to our next challenge and for Adamastor to help her new owners have some adventures of their own.

The boat is offered for sale as is and is currently cruising in Malaysia and Thailand. Delivery to neighbouring countries or as far down south as Bali, Indonesia or Darwin, Australia, may be negotiable.
