Sometimes in life people and events fall into place with truly special results. Such was the case when Robert "Bob" Perry and Bob Berg collaborated with the Ta Shing Yard on the design and build of the "BaBa", later known as the "Panda" 40' Pilothouse. A design of sublime artistry, her roots harken back to Scandinavian double-enders, with a full keel, cutaway forefoot and beautiful sheer. 6'5" headroom in a beautiful Burmese teak finish, she features separate staterooms forward for master and crew. A heavy weather offshore cruiser, she is described under sail as solid and fun to sail. Powered by a Cummins 4B3.9 at 80 HP, she is fast economical and ready for her next cruise. The S/V RAVEN was custom ordered and she arrived with many upgrades and personal touches that made her the cover of Canadian Sailing Magazine! Now it is your opportunity to own a storied boat, designed by one of the best designers in history.
Layout & Accommodations - From companionway down into Pilothouse you first notice the beautiful Burmese teak finish throughout. The galley down to Port features a Force Ten, four-burner fully-gimballed propane stove. The Adler top and front opening 12 vdc reefer and freezer draw low amps. A stainless steel double sink rounds out the galley. To Starboard the navigation center features a chart table, Brookes and Gatehouse instrumentation, VHF-Radio and bookcases for manuals and Coast Pilot. Moving forward the raised dinette and settee to Port can be lowered to make a berth. The lower helm is to Starboard. The engine room is accessed through a series of hatches in the cabin sole. Forward and two steps down you gain access to the crew's stateroom to Port and Head to Starboard. The well-appointed Master's stateroom features a v-berth queen, all the way forward with hanging lockers and storage for convenient liveaboard/cruising capability.
