1981 Bristol 40

Designed by Ted Hood, the Bristol 40 is a 40-foot rendition of Finisterre, the famous wooden, shoal-draft centerboard yawl.  Originally dubbed the Bristol 39, the design after several minor changes later became the Bristol 40.  The Bristol 40 is a classic racer/cruiser that has proven successful in the company of other classics such as the Block Island and Bermuda 40. 

This Ted Hood design offers classic lines, full keel for easy handling and straight tracking, warm wood interiors and much more. Bristol craftsmen, knowledgeable of both glass and wood boat construction, were able to combine the finest features of each in the Bristol 40. Result: a practical comfortable racer-cruiser with all the refinements of modern design and the extra values that make this boat a classic after 32 years.  "Shoe Horn"  (Hull #112) has been family owned since new and been steadily updated over the years.

Please call to arrange to see this beautiful, classic, Ted Hood design.
