1982 Spindrift 43 Center Cockpit Cutter
Major price reduction; $50,000. Owner is ready to say goodby to Delphini after a number of great years cruising in Central and South America and up the Pacific Coast. She's a proven passagemaker. Call now to inspect her and make your best offer!
The Spindrift 43 is a robustly built, solid fiberglass medium displacement cutter built for offshore voyaging. She sports a canoe stern for added buoyancy in a following sea. She is built to a high standard with much detail and craftsmanship shown throughout. She is well equipped for cruising offshore and sports a Ford Lehman engine*. Solid construction, good sailing characteristics, safety and a seakindly motion are hallmarks of the Spindrift 43.
If you've been looking at Mason, Tayana, Pacific Seacraft and other similar craft, you owe it to yourself to investigate the quality, value and cruising benefits of the Spindrift 43. Call now for your private showing.
*Note on Ford Lehman Diesel engines. We've sold a few boats over the years with Ford Lehman diesels and have noted the distinction of these engines over many of the other diesels more commonly found on sailboats. Based on Ford tractor engines, these marinized powerplants are unusual in that they regularly outlast their more traditional counterparts. Many small block normally aspirated diesel engines will reach 12,000-13,000 running hours with a "rebuild" often required at about half that amount. In comparison, Ford Lehman diesels are often just getting broken in at 6,000 hours and are expected to last for 20,000-22,000 hours. I know of an old Grand Banks that has over 25,000 hours and has never had a rebuild and is still running strong.
