This Atlantic 40 power ketch is,as her name suggests, is a robust, safe and steady boat that will take you across oceans. Sail handling is done on deck, rather than from the cockpit, but the decks are wide and safe and the centre cockpit is deep and well protected. The second and current owner has had her for many years, and has kept her in extremely good condition. This blue water capable ketch should not be overlooked by any serious cruisers.
