Broker's comments

This Shpountz 38-40 is a special and beautiful classic schooner, built in 1983 and launched in 1984. She is one of 45 built and was not only designed by Daniel Bombigher but also built by him also. She is the ideal size and a joy to handle, by far the fastest and most easily handled of all the Shpountz family, exceeding 9 knots in force 3 winds. Designed for the high seas, providing maximum comfort and sailing with space, stability, strength and manouverability, ideal as a long passage maker or a unique place to spend your holidays.
