Glacer 40

The Glacer 40 is a 40.19ft masthead sloop designed by Horst E. Glacer and built in aluminum or steel by many builders since 1983.

It accomodates 5 people in 2 cabins plus salon.

The Glacer 40 is a heavy sailboat which is under powered. It is reasonably stable / stiff and has an excellent righting capability if capsized. It is best suited as a heavy bluewater cruising boat. The fuel capacity is excellent. There is a good water supply range.
