1979 Fuji Cutter

New Bern, North Carolina


Alpha II  has some cosmetic blemishes on the port side with an area of "dock rash" mid-ships and will need a piece of teak scarfed in around the forward chock.  She is original and will need updating and TLC but would make a nice live-aboard for the person looking to put the work in.  A lot of boat for the money.  Offers are encouraged.

This Sparkman & Stephens design was built by Fuji Yachts, renowned for their craftsmanship and quality. She offers an abundantly spacious cruising layout (6’ 4” Headroom) complete with a separate private aft cabin. The interior is teak throughout with exceptional storage in an array of wonderfully crafted cabinets and drawers.

Built with the highest regard for detailed quality, the Sparkman & Stephens designed Fuji 40 has a spacious layout for cruising and/or live aboard boat. The forward cabin has a V-Berth, which provides plenty of space to "stretch out" in complete privacy. Teak ceiling battens running the length of the V-Berth provide a warm feel and also ensure excellent hull ventilation. A bank of teak drawers along with several overhead storage compartments provides plenty of storage for favorite books and clothing.

A large hanging locker is to port just aft of the forward cabin. This locker is complete with a shelf and is also lined with ceiling battens to ensure a mold free environment for ship stores. The head is located opposite to starboard (see layout) and is a very clean design with teak trim.

The main salon features a centerline drop leaf table with internal storage. The port side has a single settee with a large pipe berth above. The starboard side has a single settee with two tiers of storage shelves above. While the lower shelf is open, the upper one features two cleverly designed cane faced sliders. The ease in which these panels slide is testament to the fit and finish throughout the boat. All drawers and cabinets open and close with the same ease.

The U-shaped galley is just aft of the salon to port. There is an abundant amount of storage space in numerous cabinets and drawers, all easily accessible in a brace friendly configuration. Again, the finish work in this particular area is most impressive with the overall appearance being that of fine furniture.

Opposite the galley to starboard, there is a mirrored wine rack/bar with enclosed storage beneath. The nav station is located just aft of this to starboard and features a large flip top desk, chart storage beneath.

The nav station and companionway form a passageway to the aft cabin, which is completely private from the rest of the boat. The aft cabin offers a large single berth to starboard and a very comfortable double berth to port. As in the forward cabin, teak ceiling battens line each side of the cabin which promotes excellent ventilation and a very warm, rich ambiance. For storage, there are two large hanging lockers (each lined with ceiling battens) as well as a total of eight large teak faced drawers.


The "U" shaped galley is to port of companionway and is designed to be used in any sea conditions safely.
