Broker's Comments

When you step on board this Sigma 400 you get an immediate feeling of strength and stability. She is very well built and has proven to be a very fast cruiser / racer as expected from a Rob Humphries design.

Her overall hull design was based on the 1988 Whitbread Maxi 'Rothmans' and this clearly gives her the famous balance and stablity she is known to deliver particularly in heavy weather. This boat has raced some Round Irelands and Fastnets but has for the last decade been a great performer on IRC in a very competitive 'round the cans' club scene. Equally happy racing or doing some serious miles, this is a lot of boat for a 40 footer, and will provide the new owner with the much sought-after combination of fast racing and comfortable cruising.

Set up for racing at the moment, she needs only a little bit of polish to get her back looking tip top. A new set of cushions below would be a great advantage, and although not necessary, a sand and varnish below decks would have her looking brand new.
