This is not a good boat, this is a GREAT boat.
This boat isn’t the spare, flat deck racing machines with crew bunks you typically think of when you hear Choate 40. No, this Choate is focused on cruising with a very spacious, private stateroom and a wide open, comfortable, warm teak-trimmed interior for long retreats to your favorite island anchorage. Make no mistake though, she’s fast, too! This is the kind of sailboat you can surprise the big boys at the finish line when you aren’t rapidly cruising to the next anchorage with friends and family in tow.
“Slow Loris” has new epoxy topcoat and Kiwigrip non-skid, a newly redesigned nav station, and rebuilt starboard bulkhead. All projects were done with great care by the current owner– a skilled, professional marine craftsman. Whoever buys this buys this boat – regardless of whether they intend to use her as a live aboard, or as a cruiser, or weekend racer – will absolutely love her all-around great qualities and the great value she represents.
