About this Saltram Saga 40


"Sagamore" is a Saltram Saga 40 commissioned in 1991. She has been extensively sailed in the UK, France and the Mediterranean and has very recently returned from a long cruise to Italy and Sicily. She is in exceptionally good condition overall and has a wonderfully light and airy feel to her below decks. She would make an ideal long-distance cruising yacht for a couple and would provide a safe, seaworthy yacht together with a very homely environment in which to live. "Sagamore” is Part 1 Registered with good VAT paperwork. She has all the equipment necessary for more adventures and is ready to go. Viewing is highly recommended!

The interior is in Oak in the forward cabin and main saloon, with Mahogany joinery in the galley and navigation area.

Before fitting out the interior, the hull was lined from the beam shelf to the waterline with 10mm Insulsheet, a closed cell rubber sheet material, with half hour fire resistant rating and 5% max moisture absorption. This has proven to prevent any condensation even in extreme cold.

The underwater hull was treated with four coats of Blakes solvent free epoxy before launching.
