Pacific 40 Deck Saloon - SOLD


American designed and Taiwanese built, this 40 footer packs a lot in. She is very nicely designed with a roomy raised saloon, two generous cabins and a great galley layout. She is a comfortable yacht to sail and sail handling is so simple. A new engine in 2014 and may other features make this such a reliable prospect.

In 2015 'Viva Layla' underwent a good hull job in Penang. Succesive layers of old antifoul were taken right back and the hull prepared anew, new primer etc. A new stern tube was also installed.

The yacht is offered with a large and valuable inventory... two folding bikes, diving bottles, jackets and regulators, a spare anchor windlass, numerous filters, hand held depth sounder and many other treats.

Inspection by appointment with YBC.
