"The Bermuda 40 is a quintessential example of Tripp's art and masterful eye for near-perfect balance. I think it can be safely said that this boat has stood the test of time, and, although the design is now 40 years old, many people, myself among them, still consider the Bermuda 40 one of the most beautiful yachts afloat." ~ Jack Horner for Boat U.S.Boat Review  

PARVATI (hull #181) is a fine example of the iconic Bermuda 40, lovingly cared for by her owner who has spent many summers cruising along the New England coast. Stored indoors in the off-season and professionally maintained, she is available to see on request.

This William Tripp Jr. Hall of Fame design was the Hinckley Company's first semi-custom offering. A total of 203 Bermuda Forties were built between 1959 and 1991.
