Pros:
Cons:

I own Francesca, a 1965 Columbia 40 Yawl customized by Palmer Johnson and Hinckley Yachts. She is a factory-built yawl with interior work and exterior trim customized by Palmer Johnson in the '60s and '70s. In the early nineties she went to Hinckley and was rebuilt/restored. The deck was taken off, recored, re-glassed and repainted. All wood trim was replaced. A new main mast, rigging and sails were also added. I have since repowered and rewired.
She sails like a dream and turns heads wherever she goes. Truly one of the most beautiful boats out there!

Pros:
Cons:

Solera is our Columbia 40 hull number 6. She has had many upgrades making her a comfortable and capable cruiser. Solera is cutter rigged which adds to sail plan options. Her narrow beam and cutaway full keel make her motion comfortable. Long overhangs give her an unmistakable look. The Columbia 40 is an affordable and beautiful cruiser. More information about Solera can be found at sailsolera.blogspot.com
