  40' Santa Cruz SC 40 '84 "Kokopelli"

This Santa Cruz 40 is an exceptional racer cruiser. It is mainly set up for cruising and raced to Honolulu in 2015 with father and son. There are many well-thought-out updates and improvements. Forward on deck there is an anchor winch and a deck mounted bowsprit. All lines lead aft and there is a large, substantial dodger with great hand grips. Don’t miss this opportunity.

Additional Information

After purchasing KOKOPELLI in 1999, she was berthed in the South Beach Marina where she began an active race schedule. She participated in the Corinthian mid-winters, OYRA Ocean series, Vallego race, Delta Ditch, Bay View Monday Night Madness, the Friday series at the South Beach Yacht Club and several windjammers. Early in 2004 we moved the boat to Santa Cruz to prep her for the 2004 Baha Ha Ha, installing a windlass, refrigerator, dodger and SSB radio. In July of 2004 we sailed to southern Ca. explored the Channel Islands and all the harbors and yacht clubs along the way before our send-off to Mexico from San Diego. After the Baha Ha Ha we sailed to La Paz where we took a berth at Marina De La Paz and spent the winter season visiting the islands in the Sea of Cortez. We traveled up the Sea to Loreto then across to San Carlos where again we took a berth and spent the summer. In the fall we cruised to Mazatlán then to Puerto Vallarta where we berthed at Paradise Marina. From there we continued south Ixtapa  Acapulco, and Huatulco, then transited the Gulf of Tehuantepec to Guatemala, on to Nicaragua, Costa Rica then Panama for the transit of the canal. From there we sailed to the San Blas Islands then to Cartegena, Colombia . We then sailed north to Roatan, Cozumel, and Isla Mujeres then to Key West. We spent the season in Ft Lauderdale then up the eastern seaboard to the Chesapeake Bay, up the Potomac to D.C. then to Annapolis. We did the C&D canal to Cape May N.J. then offshore to Montauk Point NY.  We wintered there and next spring took off for Cape Cod, Boston and Maine. We returned to Montauk did the Round Long Island race then up the Hudson to the Erie canal. We wintered over in Buffalo (in a shed) re-launched in spring, sailed Lake Erie to enter the Port Huron Mackinaw Island regatta. After the race we sailed up the east coast of Michigan and crossed to Chicago where KOKOPELLI was transported back to California via truck. After a month in the yard in Moss Landing we had the mast re-painted and new nonskid done. We then started prepping for the 2015 Transpac. after the Transpac we to sailed to Seattle where we cruised for 2 years, returning to Santa Cruz 2019.
