40' Bristol 1972 L L Windancer


Designed by Ted Hood, this is a great example of a Bristol 40’, well loved and cared for by the present owners.  They have owned her for the past 17 years.  The first three years the owners spent overseeing an amazing restoration. At this time, the cockpit was restored into a more accommodating Tee shape cockpit.  Since her launching in 2004, she has been constantly upgraded with new Frigoboat Marine refrigerator/freezer, bow thruster, a/c, teak deck, and many more new upgrades.

Classis lines, Flag Blue hull, a great sailor, has offshore experience to Bermuda, Virgin Islands, and is a very capable off shore vessel or weekend cruiser.
