About this Malo 40


Offering the finest level in both finish and construction a Malo yacht is a true quality cruising boat. Leif Ängermark design combined with the renowned Swedish standards results in one of the best forty foot boats on the market.

SOZO has been professionally maintained and benefits from light usage plus a good specification, viewing is a must for those in the market for a pedigree cruising yacht. Lying ashore in Poole and ready for inspection, viewing is highly recommended.


Malo Yachts are known for their high end build quality. A balsa core sandwich provides strength and  rigidity whilst framework of transverse and longitudinal bulkheads are laminated directly inside the hull to further adds to the robust build. Both the hull and deck are bolted and laminated into a single unit preventing movement between the two. Accommodation below offers the same standards and the joinery alone proves that, whilst labour intensive, Malo yachts are built to last. 

Deck Fittings & Ground Tackle

The deck layout is spacious with ease of use underway primarily in mind. A raised gunwale line and guard rails surround the boat including across the transom. Forward the anchor and winch is flush to the hull with easy handling and access to the mechanisms for servicing. Stainless cleats, including at midships, are fitting along the top of the gunwale. Sheets are run back to the cockpit to meet four winches, two electric, with a further winch plated to the mast. The cockpit is deep with large locker space for generator and equipment storage. A cockpit table is fitted and foldable providing extra space when underway. A large windshield provides protection whilst maintaining excellent visibility.

A large mirror and well positioned marine head offer a comfortable space when both underway and in harbour, further locker and storage space surrounds the sink. 

The same theme of well utilised space continues through to the chart table area and saloon. A full switch panel for the electrical circuits is at eye level along with VHF radio, CD player and other navigational equipment. The lifting chart table offers space for charts and draws are built in beneath. 

The saloon space is centred around a large table with a settee surrounding it to port. To starboard are two large chairs offering a change to the usual settees. A nice touch is the small bar space between the chairs which adds to the relaxed nature of the saloon. Surrounding the saloon are lockers plus there is extra storage beneath the settees.
