1984 Baba 40

Chester, Nova Scotia, Canada


The Baba 40's are bluewater cruisers, built to weather serious conditions in comfort. Raised bulwarks, wrap-around teak cockpit and a spacious, warm interior make them desirable for long distance cruising. Careful designing is one of the most attractive characteristics of these models. Note the following details: enormous storage and living areas and numerous portholes, hatches and deck prisms.

This Baba 40 has had extensive upgrades and maintanence in the last six years. Systems have been updated with the idea of long range cruising and safety There are still some items to add such as your favourite new chart plotter and radar, VHF with ALS(antennas already mast installed) and maybe a water maker if wanted(plumbing already installed)
