"The Bermuda 40 is a quintessential example of Tripp's art and masterful eye for near-perfect balance. I think it can be safely said that this boat has stood the test of time, and, although the design is now 40 years old, many people, myself among them, still consider the Bermuda 40 one of the most beautiful yachts afloat." ~ Jack Horner for Boat U.S.Boat Review
Just step aboard this yacht and it is obvious the love and care this yacht has received over the years. Clean decks, maintained varnish, many nice upgrades and more than anything a keen attention to details that would make any knowledgeable owner envious. Carol Lyn is an iconic yacht maintained to an exacting standard by a knowledgeable yachtsman. This is a very good opportunity to own a great example of this renown yacht at a very competitive price.

The iconic Bermuda 40 is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful sailboats ever built. The Mark III version is faster than its predecessors with its taller rig and reconfigured ballast. This William Tripp Jr. Hall of Fame design was the Hinckley Company's first semi-custom offering. A total of 203 Bermuda Forties were built between 1959 and 1991.
"The CAROL LYN is a US Coast Guard documented vessel whose home port is Rockport, Maine. Having always been properly maintained, she is in excellent condition. The CAROL LYN has had only two knowledgeable owners. She is always stored inside during the off season. Recent upgrades include a four cylinder Yanmar diesel engine, a Hoyt Jib Boom and an electric main sheet winch making her both reliable and easy to handle by an older couple. CAROL LYN is the preferred dinette version with dark green topsides, a white boot top and black bottom paint. The topsides, white cabin and deck with cream nonskid are enhanced by A+ varnish on all exterior exterior surfaces." ~ Current Owners
The interior of the CAROL LYN has varnished ash bulkheads, table and trim with a white overhead and port light cabin sides. The vanished teak and holly sole has a built-in dust pan and grate.
