K Carter 39 1973, 2022 January, For sale Olympic Carter 39, Voilier de croisière de l'année 1973 de 11,7m de longueur à Cornwall (Royaume Uni), 35.359 €, Brokers Comments: This Carter 39 is a proven offshore racer/cruiser; she has been in the same ownership since 1980 and has been well maintained throughout those years; she is built to a high standard, with safety and comfort in mind. The owner has upgraded the boat throughout his ownership; the most notable upgrade is the Beta Marine 35hp diesel engine in 2010 and some new electronics more recently.  Owners Comment: Peter Carter commissioned April Magic, designed by Dick Carter and built by Olympic Yachts of Greece as a contender for the 1973 Admirals Cup. I purchased her in 1980 after she competed in the notorious 1979 Fastnet without damage; I continued to race with RORC or offshore until 1990, including two further Fasnets and winning the Frederick Morgan Trophy. This was interspaced with cruising and family holidays on board. I then raced her to Cadiz in Spain, cruised the western end of the Mediterranean, sailed to the Canary Islands, sailed to the West Indies, returned via Bermuda; The Azoresand returned to the UK. April Magic is an eye-catching, fast to windward and very safe displacement boat. She has given us 30 years of fantastic fast, safe and comfortable racing/cruising. Année: 1973 Long.: 11.7 m Lieu: Cornwall (Royaume Uni);

Samphire of Mersea K Carter 39 1973, 2021 For Sale Carter 39 sailing yacht for sale.  Built in 1973 and designed by Dick Carter as an offshore racer.  Samphire participated in the 1975 Fastnet and finished a credible 25th..  She also won a three peaks challenge and had the keel adapted from a fin keel to a hydraulic controlled centreboard.  Samphire's green top sides and flush decks and nice lines create an attractive yacht that will turn heads wherever she goes. On deck, Samphire features twin steering wheels, two cockpits, all sail control lines are led aft, and the decks are flush.  She can be sailed short handed if required but will also provide a good turn of speed for the enthusiastic sailer. Below decks, is a beamy saloon with u shaped settee to port, twin berths in the saloon to starboard, and aft berth and generous double up front.  The tumblehome hull shape creates a large space in the saloon area.  However, it is fair to comment the head room is approximately 5ft 10. The boat is presented in good condition, however there are a few minor areas which could benefit from enhancement, for example, some parts of the headlining are falling.  The boat has heating but no hot water. Samphire is an attractive boat, solidly built and overall presents well. Long.: 10.94 m, Lieu: Essex (Royaume Uni), Nom : Samphire of Mersea, Constructeur: Carter, Matériel: Fibre de verre, Built as an offshore racer. Won the Three Peaks. About 25th in the 1975 Fastnet. Owned by Sammy Sampson who was part of Ted Heath's regular team. She sails absolutely beautifully.
