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!

Tim and Tina

Can we assume the highlight is a typo and you meant wouldn't? Makes a big difference.

My Bad... and yes it was a type-O and we will be headed off shore full time in a couple years. Hoping for a couple years in the med, then the caribean sea then the pacific run.

Thanks

It's been over a year, any updates! Another Challenger has come to the market that has spiked my interest.

Anybody still here?
