Joshua 40 'Petronella', a centre cockpit steel ketch


PRICE: £49,500

Petronella is a well maintained Joshua 40. She comes equipped with everything needed to live aboard and is ready for extended cruising or ocean passage making. She has been our home and looked after us well for nine years.

Launched in 1976 and currently lying in Prickly Bay, Grenada in the West Indies, Petronella is a beautiful, long-keeled, steel ketch. Joshua 40s were designed by Jean Knocker in France for Bernard Moitessier who later entered Joshua #1 in the famous Golden Globe race of 1968.

Petronella is for sale as our circumstances have changed following a recent family bereavement.

by: Dick McClary

I've been aboard this boat on several occasions, the owners being personal friends of mine. 'Petronella' is well maintained and equipped for ocean sailing - she'd certainly look after you well in heavy weather.
