Description: Hitchiker 40 Mk3
Lovingly built by a German perfectionist and launched in 1989, this boat had an extensive refit in 2012/3 with much new equipment added, and completed a 2 month cruise to Louissiades and back during 2014. Australian registered, with all the gear to go again, this boat is in good condition with a large sheltered bridgedeck saloon area wich includes to double bed cabins. New engines, ne electronics, new standing rigging in 2012/3 means all the money has been spent.
Boat now needs a good tidy up and antifouling as absentee owners health has precluded him using the boat for the last year and he has now reluctantly placed the boat on the market at a bargain price.
The boat has now been tidied up and cleaned as indicated by the smaller new photos.
