General Details

BRAMARE is a 6-berth B-40 with white Hereshoff interior and always lift stored when not cruising the Chesapeake for the past 11 years - on average 20 days cruising/year.  While not a new boat with all the bells and whistles, BRAMARE is best described as well built, well maintained, and moderately spartan without a lot of complicated systems, just relaxing, pleasurable sailing.


BRAMARE was purchased with the intent to leisurely explore and enjoy inland water cruising trips.  Not a slow boat, BRAMARE goes to weather quite well (even with the center board up) and will tack in about 100 degrees. The B-40 has a shoal draft with an added centerboard that certainly has its advantages in the Chesapeake Bay and anywhere else, offering access to less popular and more interesting places off the “beaten path”.
