Elements of this Marlow-Hunter 40

The Marlow-Hunter 40 is a modern, stylish cruising yacht with easy sail handling, nicely proportioned accommodations, and user-friendly sail controls. She is a well-built and finely finished yacht that is loaded with factory and local options.

Lotus is in mint condition with only 365 hours, and features the spacious two-stateroom / two head layout. She is offered by an experienced yachting couple, well-versed in outfitting, enjoying, and properly caring for such a yacht. One owner since new. 

The owners, veteran ocean voyagers on their previous boats, took great care in the outfitting of Lotus, and the result is a well-thought-out, thoroughly equipped yacht ready for voyaging near and far. 

A lead keel was specified for better performance, and lower maintenance. Other significant options include an upsized 54 hp engine,  generator, water maker, reliable DC system with AGM batteries and solar panels, custom stern arch for dinghy, full cockpit enclosure, hydronic heat, Ultra anchor, complete Raymarine Hybrid Touch package with AIS, SSB radio, cruising chute, feathering prop…

Service has been regular, and is logged. Lotus is a stunning vessel that shows much younger than a 2014, and is worth a careful look.  Premier Vancouver moorage is assumable.
