    Olympic - Carter 39 for sale

    Sailing BoatsOlympicCarter 39United Kingdom

    Remarks :

    Brokers Comments:
    This Carter 39 is a proven offshore racer/cruiser; she has been in the same ownership since 1980 and has been well maintained throughout those years; she is built to a high standard, with safety and comfort in mind.
    The owner has upgraded the boat throughout his ownership; the most notable upgrade is the Beta Marine 35hp diesel engine in 2010 and some new electronics more recently. 

    Owners Comment:
    Peter Carter commissioned April Magic, designed by Dick Carter and built by Olympic Yachts of Greece as a contender for the 1973 Admirals Cup.
    I purchased her in 1980 after she competed in the notorious 1979 Fastnet without damage; I continued to race with RORC or offshore until 1990, including two further Fasnets and winning the Frederick Morgan Trophy.
    This was interspaced with cruising and family holidays on board.
    I then raced her to Cadiz in Spain, cruised the western end of the Mediterranean, sailed to the Canary Islands, sailed to the West Indies, returned via Bermuda; The Azoresand returned to the UK.
    April Magic is an eye-catching, fast to windward and very safe displacement boat. She has given us 30 years of fantastic fast, safe and comfortable racing/cruising.
