I was the builder of the Acapulco 40 and just happened to stumble across this site (and your question). I produced these excellent cruising boats until 1979 and will be happy to talk about the boat with you. I sold most of these in a partial stage of completion, for the owners to finish. My prototype (the Oriana) ended up going around the world on a 20 year adventure. I originally sold this boat to Ed Atkin and he
still has it He has written a book about this 20 year voyage titled "one wave at a time". He would never own anything else. I sold the business in 1979 and sailed my own to Hawaii, where it remains today in Lahaina, Maui. If you would like to call me my number is (541)488-6931.
