The Amber 40 is true quality craftsmanship! Every inch of this yacht when I stepped onboard was stunning. From the light coloured warm wood finish to the smallest of detail inside and out. She has a unique stern/helm design wrapping around making you feel very secure. Her navy blue hull is also immaculate. Enough accommodation to be a comfortable family cruising boat or live aboard for extended cruising.
Yachting World in November 2005 quoted
“One thing is guaranteed - the level of craftsmanship will be second to none”
Another from Rob Humphreys - “Seldom will grace have moved so fast” when talking of his hull design.
This beautiful yacht draws comment and admiration at home and abroad, she has a very sea kindly sea motion with a good sailing performance. The deep cockpit gives a great feeling of security and the flat decks are a joy to work on, although all lines are lead aft to the cockpit for ease of use. The hull is immensely strong due to her construction method. The hull is totally dry and condensation free, she is a pleasure to sail.
