Bayfield 40, 1984



The Bayfield cruiser line of sailboats were developed in the early 1970’s at the Bayfield Boat Yard, Clinton, Ontario. Designed by H. Ted Gozzard, the Bayfield 40 has a unique combination of new and old thinking with her clipper bow, trailboards, and teak combings combined with a beamy fully updated interior. This is a big 40-footer, and owners love her as much for her good looks as for her amazingly spacious accommodations.

She has been designed for short handed passage making and is extremely capable offshore. Performance-wise she may not win many races but when in a blow you will enjoy her heavy displacement, full keeled underbody. When it gets to 12 knots she really gets going. This is not a fault but simply what she was meant to do like a marathon runner versus a greyhound. Sven Donaldson’s excellent review says, "While by no means an ocean grey-hound, this boat will surprise a few sailors with its legs. The key, of course, is plenty of sail area (nearly 1000 square feet ), sail area that really comes into its own on reaching courses."
