2008 Clipper Heritage 40


Clipper 40s are well known for their solid hand laid fibre-glass construction, classic styling, great walk around side decks and their overall cruising ability.

With bulwark boarding gate on the starboard side, cockpit and swim platform with laid teak, stainless aft railings and a huge fly bridge deck, this Clipper ticks all of the of boxes.

The Sea-Keeper 5 Gyro Motion Stabiliser, is just one of the great additional features fitted to this 2008 Clipper Heritage 40.

The Gyro was professionally fitted, to improve on-board comfort when lying at anchor and also by reducing rolling motion, which can sometimes be experienced, whilst steaming at cruise speed.

The benefits of “at rest” stabilisation on monohull vessels, are well documented and owners’ claim an improvement of what “feels like” 80% to 90% in roll reduction at anchor!

Owners also claim a major roll reduction whilst underway, of 50% or better.

This Clipper 40 has been well maintained throughout her life and presents in great condition.

The single Cummins QSB 230hp diesel, has run only around 1,480hrs and the 7kw Onan Generator has now run around 1,860hrs.

A new AB Alimuna 10ALX Centre Console RIB Tender with 20hp 4 stroke Suzuki was fitted in September 2020, including a 9″ Simrad Chart Plotter/Sounder and Fusion Sound System.

There are also many great features such as, electronic engine controls, Smart Craft digital engine monitoring, stainless steel window frames, modern galley appliances, a 5000watt Inverter, Solar Panels, flybridge wet-bar with fridge, Smeg gas BBQ and sink!

The two cabin, single bathroom layout works extremely well for couples and small families and is fully air-conditioned.

The bathroom has a modern electric flush head, sink with vanity mirror and a seperate shower cubicle with a glass bi-fold door.

Combining modern appliances, new Garmin navigation electronics, reverse-cycle air conditioning throughout, Bow and Stern Thrusters, a new AB Centre Console Tender, and a 5000w Inverter with Cummins economy and reliability, you need look no further!
