Broker Remarks

Sigma 400 for sale.  A very fast cruiser racer of Rob Humphries hull design based on the 1988 Whitbread Maxi “Rothmans”. She delivers spectacularly in heavy weather with balance, stability and no slamming. Raced in her early life, this boat has seen more cruising in the last ten years but has benefitted from extensive renovation in 2014 including a new engine (200 hours), excellent electrics (Rolls batteries and inverter), solar panels, an extensive electronics fit including full race TackTik instruments, radar,  VHF radio with AIS and a full suite of Kevlar sails plus two symmetrical spinnakers. Fractional rig with running backstays. This is a lot of boat for a 40 footer.  Some renovation to the rear cabins and the option to fit a supplied new table is needed otherwise in excellent condition. Standing rigging was professionally checked and reinstalled in 2017. The current owners have moved abroad and are reluctant to sell but this boat needs to be sailed!
