An excellent example of this fast cruising yacht built in Sweden in 1989. A rare bread, the Scanmar 40 offers the high build quality and finish one would expect from a Scandinavian yard. Designed as a performance cruiser, she is light on the helm and offers excellent sea keeping qualities. As Comfortable as she is sleek, this eminently capable yacht has been very well looked after over the years including a new engine.
