About this Saltram Saga 40


Occasionally boats like this come to the market. It’s a showpiece and the pictures are current! Just arrived on the market and only two owners from new. It’s ready for use. This Saga 40 is the best example we have seen and is quite unique having hydraulic wheel steering (noted in Yachting Monthly article). It was ashore in 2012 for a year of extensive renovation work. The hull was shot blasted, re-fared and gel shielded. The deck was professionally re-glassed and re-laid with synthetic teak which is still in superb condition. Rig and all mechanical work carried out, as well as the interior.

It’s ago anywhere yacht with a strong seaworthy design and build quality, but is still manageable and has been used frequently for single handed use. The yacht has just been ashore for antifoul and renewed anodes.
