Moorings 4000

by Sail Staff, Posted July 20, 2004
The Moorings's collaboration with American multihull designers Morelli & Melvin and the South African builder Robertson & Caine has resulted in the Moorings 4000 40-foot catamaran. As you would expect from The Moorings, it's an ultra-spacious cruising cat that is available for charter placement as well as via private sales.

There's a new generation of 40-somethings designed to appeal to other 40-somethings.

The hull is made of meticulously hand-laid fiberglass, and the fit and

The swift, pretty Elan 40 is a mid-priced racer/cruiser designed by Rob Humphreys that is being pitched as a strong player in the highly competitive 40-foot market. I jumped aboard for a test sail on the Chesapeake last fall to see if the reality matches the
