One of the last 43.3’s built, this lovely Ted Hood design has always had exceptional care and has been continually upgraded to maintain her good looks and systems. 

In 2021 her hull was Alexsealed by one of CT’s premier boatyards and at the same time her mast and boom were stripped and also Alexsealed Her hull is Stars and Stripes blue which is the perfect color to compliment Bristol’s extra high toe rails for which they were famous. A complete list of recent upgrades are in the full specs section of this listing. Whether you are leisurely day sailing and making use of the in mast furling main and bow thruster or heading out on a cruise and use the 8kw generator to power the two zone air conditioning, Endurance is a boat that can do both, easily managed by a couple, yet brawny enough for when the going gets tough. 

Curtis Stokes & Associates is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Prestige Yacht Sales. It is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and is not intended to convey direct representation of a particular vessel
