Friendship 40

Who says daysailers have to be small and wet? One of the newest launches from the Fontaine Design Group is neither small nor wet, but it is a daysailer. The Friendship 40 is a low-freeboard throwback to the days of graceful sheer and elegant lines. She’s big enough to be comfortable in a stiff breeze, yet can be easily handled by one or two people on an afternoon daysail. The accommodations below are finished with generous amounts of raised teak paneling and are well suited to weekend cruising. Friendship Yacht Company, Portsmouth, RI; tel. 401-682-9101
