1987 Bristol 43.3 Center Cockpit
Ted Hood’s design staff and Bristol Yachts’ craftsmen have helped define the term Cruiser-Racer. The 43.3 gets top performance from features like a medium displacement keel-centerboard design ( for favorable wetted surface to displacement ratio), a fine entry (for good upwind performance), powerful aft sections (for added stability and good speed off the wind), and a partially skeg hung rudder.”
Altair has had several recent upgrades. The goal of the current owner was to decrease the amount of effort required for enjoyable yachting. As a result the primary winches have been converted to electric and the in mast furling was converted to electric. The bow thruster adds to the docking enjoyment powered by separate lithium ion batteries with a dedicated charger.
