Those of you who have never heard of a Macintosh 47 will be very happy to know that it is a great cruising boat and wonderful live aboard. The Macintosh 47 line of blue water cruising yachts was the brainchild of Mr. Herb Gutter, a former project manager for Hans Christian. Mr. Gutter saw a need for a more modern yacht that would be lower maintenance and faster. “Quality, craftsmanship, seaworthiness and safety are the four cornerstones of the Macintosh line of sailing yachts. Born from experience and tested values, the Macintosh 47 is a true performance Bluewater cruiser, crafted with tremendous attention to detail, crew safety and crew comfort.” The in house designer at Macintosh Yachts was Tim Kings. He did a great job. The Macintosh 47 is a beautiful center cockpit three stateroom cruiser with a long modified fin keel of 6’ draft, lead ballast, and a skeg mounted rudder. Similar to a Taswell 49 and Norseman 447, the underbody is modern and efficient and with the integral tankage she has load carrying capacity needed for cruising. With her long waterline length of 40’ and moderate beam at 14’4” she’s well-proportioned and at a 10tonns displacement weight and 42% ballast/displacement ratio, she actually sails well. She’s not a race boat but as a cruising home afloat that can take you anywhere, you’ll be very impressed. And I mean very impressed! Down below, you’ll find the that the quality of the workmanship and joinery is evident with teak bulkheads and teak and holly sole. The interior layout of this boat is most amazing as it gives you more space than a small condo. With three staterooms including the owners spacious aft cabin and ensuite head, there is plenty of space. With seventeen fixed windows and Lewmar overhead deck hatches and opening ports, you have good ventilation.
Waypoint 10 is hull No 4 was built as the 'Aston-Dyson project' in 1987. Peter Dyson and John Aston were both long haul pilots, I thought for BA, but it may have been Cathay, as shown in the list. However, she was sailed to the Med, where the partnership broke up, and sold on 1995 to Chris Browne a computer engineer who lives in Cyprus.
Chris kept her with very little use in Larnaca marina Cyprus until December 2017 when Demiredo shipping ltd bought her and complete refurbished her.
Unfortunately she is priced to sell due to moving to another continent.

The interior layout is a one-off custom build. There were originally two interior designs - the owners design with the large aft double stateroom and a double fore-cabin right in the bow, and a charter design with the aft cabin split into two small doubles and two forward cabins. Waypoint 10 has the large aft stateroom of the owner version, and the two fore-cabins of the charter version.
The galley is fully equipped with crockery, glassware, and cutlery for six, in addition to cooking normal cooking utensils. There are a large refrigerator and separate top opening freezer. Both use large holding plates and are driven by a single 230v compressor. In a typical Cyprus summer when cruising, one hour every 12 hours is sufficient to maintain correct working temperatures in both at the same time. The freezer is top opening, and the refrigerator both top and front opening, and both are well insulated, with substantial holding plates. The tops form part of the galley working surface, where there is also a double stainless steel sink. For cooking, there is a gas stove with an oven and three top burners. The cooker can either swing with boat heel or be locked in place. There is also a small 230v microwave cooker and one 230 V electric oven and two electric plates for cooking used with generator in operation.

The hull and deck are flange type joints mechanically fastened every four inches with 5/16 stainless steel bolts. 3M 5200 sealant is used for the bedding compound. The inside joint then chemically joint with three layers of laminate.
The structural bulkheads are made of ¾ A-grade marine plywood with tapered edges to allow proper bonding to the hull and deck, they are glassed to the hull and are mounted on foam compression pads to prevent hard spots. Then fiberglassed on both sides to deck and hull.
Shoal and deep draft keels are one-piece poured lead bolted to the hull with eleven one inch stainless steel bolts.

in excellent condition.
She is a double spreader sloop with a cutter option. There is an inner forestay, however is this used for hoisting a working jib or storm jib, when conditions dictate. The jib sheets are run back to a cockpit winch. The main has a conventional hoisting slide system with a mast gate to allow the hoisting of a tri-sail. The mast mounts two halyard winches, four jammers and a slab-reefing winch. There are two genoa halyards, a spinnaker halyard, an inner foresail halyard.
She has one set of 120% Genoa on Shaeffer furling gear plus full battened main (purchased new in 2019.)
The working jib, which has seen very little use, has a single slab reef, and it balances the main well when double reefed. If there are three reefs down on the main, then the reef should also take in on the foresail to balance the boat. The cruising chute is also little used, and is stowed in its snuffer in the deck box behind the cockpit. There are snatch blocks at the aft end of the toe-rail to get the best lead for the chute sheets.
The storm jib and tri-sail have not been used for twenty-five years, and are pretty much as new.
