The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.


In recent years she has cruised Italy, Spain, Malta, Sicily and Greece. Very capable offshore.

The Hunter 40.5, also referred to as the Legend 40.5, is an American sailboat that was designed by the Hunter Design Team as a cruiser and first built in 1991.
