Bowman 40

Hamble, United Kingdom

  • £75,000

  • Rival Bowman 40 ?Patas? was moulded 1988 and professionally completed in Holland in 1991 to Bowman specifications. She was extensively sailed in the Baltic until 1999 when she was acquired by her current owner. She has been sailed extensively on the south coast of the UK, Scillies, Southern Ireland and the Channel Islands. She is a boat that has often been sailed on passage, single handed, whilst always providing safe and confident passage making as you would expect from Bowman. The boat overall has been lightly use during her time as can been seen by the interior and low engine hours. She was lifted ashore in 2010 where she has remained due to owner commitments.
