Overview

Designed by Ted Hood and built to the highest standards by Bristol Yachts, Figment features a shoal draft, heavier displacement hull form with efficient centerboard that combine to provide excellent upwind performance, comfortable motion in a seaway and tremendous interior volume for a yacht this size. Centerboard configuration offers a minimum draft of 4’-11” with board up and a maximum draft of 11’ with board down. She is well equipped for extended shorthanded cruising, and her interior is immaculate.

With a history of caring ownership and updating, value added recent additions such as 2020 Sidepower Bow Thruster, 2021 replacement of fuel and water tanks, new electronics, cabin sole and countertops in heads and galley, new standing rigging, new Kato Davits, and more (read on); Figment is truly a boat that is hard if not impossible to match.

Broker Remarks

Designed by Ted Hood and built to the highest standards by Bristol Yachts, Figment features a shoal draft, heavier displacement hull form with efficient centerboard that combine to provide excellent upwind performance, comfortable motion in a seaway and tremendous interior volume for a yacht this size. Her draft of less than five feet allows access to less-crowded cruising grounds normally limited to much smaller yachts. Figment has had very caring owners and has seen constant attention since launched. She is well equipped for extended shorthanded cruising, and her interior is immaculate.

As previously stated, the boat has been maintained in excellent condition and has been updated. Just in the last 5 years, she has been updated tastefully throughout taking this boat from an 8 to a solid 10! This is a rare opportunity, to own a boat of great pedigree, that has been cared for equally as well as she was built. Figment awaits you in Annapolis.  

Exclusions
