Lidgard 40 “Double Image”



Classic performance cruising yacht from John Lidgard, one of New Zealand's most respected designers. Custom built in Tauranga to the highest specs for ocean cruising and very well maintained and upgraded by the present owners, the Lidgard 40 “Double Image” is a sailor's yacht. She features a generous, open cockpit and a light, spacious interior. A very full inventory has been supplemented with new gear over the past 5 years, including a new engine (2012), bowthruster (2012), new rig (2015) and a full repaint of cabin and decks (2015). All maintenance is documented.

Australian registered, in tip top order and ready to go now.
