Re: Endeavor 40 - Opinions?
Well, I finally went and looked at the Endeavour (see above), despite the less than enthusiastic reviews in this post. The boat is pretty heavily constructed, certainly much more than my C36. The current owner cruised it for many years without issue.
As with any older boat, it will need some upgrades such as nav equipment, standing and running rigging, but is in very good shape otherwise. I have read about issues with the water and fuel tanks in the bilge, but there is in sign of trouble with this one. The Perkins engine has about 5000 hours, so that might be an issue at some point. Naturally, if I decided to pursue this, a full survey would take place.
Anyway, it is another boat to give me something to think about.
