Pegasus is classic David Walters designed Cambria 44/46 in fantastic condition. Since delivery Pegasus has only seen light use in summer sails in New England waters. She has been stored indoors most winters and maintained by Hinckley Yachts, Wayfarer and Quality Yachts over the years. She’s been continuously updated and upgraded from the electronics to the interior. Some of these highlights include a new anchor windlass, electronics, sails, diesel heater, Ultrasuede fabrics, asymmetrical spinnaker, new autopilot, GPS, solar panels, both companionway dodgers and new hull and deck paint.
Thoughtful design and quality construction are some of the reasons Cambria yachts are so commonly held by their owners for so long. David Walters, the founder, designer and builder of Cambria Yachts was also the co-founder of the highly-esteemed yacht company Shannon, which he began in 1975. After only a few short years Shannon became one of the world’s finest yacht builders, known for their craftsmanship and traditional aesthetic. Once he decided he had done all he could at Shannon, he sold his half to his co-founding partner Walter Shulz and launched Cambria, where he would focus on the creation of a new line of boats with more modern lines. Not one to rush things, he spent six months in pure R&D mode before even beginning his new designs. The new line quickly became modern classics, known for their excellent sailing capabilities and quality build standards.
Pegasus‘ interior arrangement sleeps six with maximum privacy for the owner within an aft cockpit design. The aft owner’s cabin has a double to starboard and navigation center/work desk to port providing direct communication to the cockpit. The owner’s aft head features a separate stall shower. A passageway galley is accessed from the aft companionway or a second midship companionway ladder. The engine is located under this companionway ladder. Forward of the galley is the comfortable salon, guest head and V-berth guest cabin.
All the woodwork is hand picked, light varnished teak. The cabin sole, which is totally removable, is solid varnished teak with light inlay. The interior hull sides are sheathed with teak battens (ceilings) which are set off the hull to provide ventilation. Lockers are wood lined with main hanging lockers lined with cedar. The overheads and under decks are white laminate.
Pegasus is a rare opportunity to own a 34 year old sailing classic in a condition that would reflect that of a boat half her age. She is currently listed for $195,000 in North Haven Maine.
