2001 Willard 40 For Sale

My parents have listed their Willard 40 for sale. It is clean and well cared for, in nice condition, and is currently in inside storage in Rhode Island. This is an excellent cruising platform, well-built with quality construction and attention to detail throughout, a great pedigree and strong following in the trawler community.

Hull Construction
Hand laid, 100% solid fiberglass construction used in the hull. Vinylester resins are used in first two laminates. Fiberglass is laid up in one shift as per military specifications, which eliminates secondary bonds.
Topsides are hand-laid composed of end-grain balsa sandwich core in horizontal surfaces for heat insulation and closed-cell PVC sandwich core in vertical surfaces for high strength.
Exterior gel coat finish is impact resistant isothalic with a nominal 25-mil thickness.
All non-skid surfaces are molded into the deck.
Water resistant polyurethane sealants are used in all joints and fittings. Approximately 20% or more of the displacement ballast encapsulated and sealed in the keel.
Marine grade plywood used for all structural construction. Fire resistant U.S. Coast Guard approved hose is used for fuel and steering connections with reusable flare fittings.
Engine stringers are continuous with separate, heavy duty engine mounts. The hull is divided into three watertight compartments with separate bilge pumps in sumps to maintain a dry bilge. The bow contains a water tight collision bulkhead.
Shore power connection is marine grade, shielded wiring cables, all of which meets ABYC standards. High pressure lines are Aeroquip.

It's a bit depressing when I view that video, knowing that my boat will never reach that level of condition. Now, back to projects with my inferior level of fit & finish.
