Re: Challenger 40..... A good foundation?
So, I am coming to the party late. But, I am the "new" owner of the Challenger 40 Ketch Susy sold in 2009. After more than 3 years of owning and living aboard her I would agree with the comments above. A very solid cruising boat that I would hesitate to take off shore.
We have installed a number of upgrades so far and we have a few more to go before we leave but almost all of the work has been updating older systems and not fixing broken stuff.
Have a great sail!
