40' Nova Sport Sedan


ONDINE is a Nova 40' Sport Sedan that is powered by reliable twin Caterpillar 375 hp diesels with low hours. The engines have been well maintained and they run great. The yacht has an 8 KW Northern Lights Generator in a sound shield, Central Heat & Air Conditioning, 2 Staterooms and a huge cockpit. She has new upholstery and teak & holly flooring throughout her interior.

This yacht is a great choice for cruising, fishing or diving. The yacht has been well maintained and she is ready to enjoy now. Her bottom was recently painted and she runs great!

Anyone in the market for a nice convertible should take a close look at this Nova. While she may not have the brand name recognition of a Hatteras, Viking, Bertram, Cabo or Tiara, she is a tough offshore capable yacht that is seaworthy and comfortable.
