CYNARA | Bristol 49.9 | 49ft
CYNARA is a gorgeous example of the highly sought-after Bristol 49.9. She is one of several Bristol 47.7s which were extended in the mold by Bristol at the factory to provide additional storage in the lazarette, more usable deck space and additional floor space in the aft cabin. The centerline queen berth in the aft cabin is a very desirable feature and worth noting is the considerable amount of built-in storage available in this cabin.
CYNARA has benefitted from significant refitting and upgrades over the years (not the least of which are new teak decks in 2002) - many details of which can be found in the listing. Recent highlights include: Northern Lights generator, new in 2018; sails (2018, very light usage); bottom job (three coats of bottom epoxy and two coats ablative, 2018); seacocks serviced during a recent haul-out and cockpit scupper drain hoses renewed; winches, windlass and roller furling systems all serviced April 2019; hatch lenses in salon renewed 2019.
This Ted Hood keel/centerboard design is perfect wherever shoal draft is desired without sacrificing up-wind performance. Her draft measures 5’-6” with board up, and 11’ with board down. She goes surprisingly well in light air, but is a capable bluewater performer. We have represented many of these Bristol sailboats over the decades and CYNARA is truly a standout.
Reduced in asking price to US $229,000, CYNARA is an outstanding value in today’s market.
