Great boat! Thoughtfully prepared, conservatively sailed, and carefully shipped back from Mexico, s/v Grace is a special Panda 40! Designed by Robert Perry, and built by the famous Ta Shing yard, the Baba, Panda, and Tashiba 40's are well built, popular offshore cruisers. They certainly don't make boats like this anymore. This is the newest and best equipped Panda 40 on the market. Few 40' offshore boats are as prepared to sail away this week. If you've been updating your boat and watching another season go by, maybe you should be sailing Grace.
With one of the nicest warm teak interiors, Grace is an excellent live-aboard, offshore, or cruising to Alaska. The salon is open, with plenty of light from the butterfly hatch, 9 opening port-lights, and overhead lamps, most with leds. The comfortable v-berth lifts for access to storage below. The head, with shower, is clean & bright, with out being dark like some of the teak tombs. There is generous storage everywhere, and a sit down aft-facing nav-station on port. The elegant salon table is comfortable for six, and the settee serves as a secure sea-bunk. The galley is welcoming and efficient, enabling two people to work together, yet secure in a seaway. The cook is protected by a SS bar from the stove, a offshore detail not found on many production boats. There is a enclosed aft cabin, a cruiser garage, with the charger and battery watering system under the bunk.
From the bowsprit to the cockpit, the teak decks are clean, and tow-rails varnished. The full cockpit enclosure supports solar panels in addition to the side panels on SS rails from the arch to the gate. Even the engine panel is protected and high, out of the water.
