40' Palmer Johnson 1978 SINGOALLA


SINGOALLA has benefited from a comprehensive major refit in 2007, where over $100,000 was spent on her. SINGOALLA is ready for bluewater extended cruising at a moment’s notice, as her systems and equipment have been continuously updated since her refit. Unlike all of her sister NY 40s, SINGOALLA is a custom design that is specifically set up for long-term cruising. She features more built-in storage, more seating in the main salon, a custom aft cabin re-design, and plenty more systems and equipment that set her apart from all others like her. SINGOALLA is a proven fast and comfortable passage maker that, for the first time, is ready for the next family to enjoy her with the upgrades and equipment that make her such a special offering.

Available for long-term lease with option to purchase.
