The 40 New York Cruising Yacht has timeless lines and was designed for New York Yacht Club members as an offshore cruising boat, Barnaby is one of 21 built by O. J. Young, New Orleans Marine, and Palmer Johnson. She spent 3/4 of her life in the freshwaters of Lake Michigan in the USA before relocating to Australia.
Barnaby has been renovated for liveaboard use through the conversion of the icebox to a 200L fridge/freezer, the installation of an LCD TV and Bose Sound System supported by 4x100w flexi solar panels for "house" use as well as 1x60w fixed solar panel on deck for the start battery. She was fitted with a new spray dodger and bimini, as well as matching boom bag in a graphite colour that looks real smart with lazy jack system.
She comes equipped with new Raymarine electronics, inc. Chartplotter and a new Muir electric windlass with 60m chain. A new electric-flush toilet was installed in 2018 and all associated plumbing replaced. There is also a 300w inverter.
She has plenty of room above and below deck with full headroom throughout, and plenty of accommodation, 2 doubles in the aft cabin, another double or two singles in the V berth, 3 quarter berths in the saloon- enough for your crew, friends and family to rest easy.
The fitout below is clever and solid with quality rich timber interiors. A full new sail inventory stored away and the yacht has plenty of sails on board ready to go.
With this timeless style and set up for cruising the New York will be your home away from home with a recent electronic up grade and a very reliable Yanmar shaft drive motor the world is your oyster. This yacht looks fast even standing still and is well worth a look.
