The Endeavour 40 was first introduced in 1981 it was targeted at two different markets: the private owner and the charter industry, so two slightly different models were created: 1) An “Owners” model that came with a slightly taller mast, an inner forestay, and extra winches, and 2) a “Charter” model which had a shorter mast, and did not have the extra track, inner forestay, or the additional winches. Models included a sloop, a cutter, and a ketch.
Bob completed the design work on the Endeavour 40 in 1979, and tooling was about 50% complete when Bob left Endeavour that same year. Pleased with the result in every regard it proved to be a very popular boat with production ending in 1985 with 185 hulls.
