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.

ENDEAVOUR 40: USED BOAT REVIEW
A New York couple stays loyal to the Endeavour brand for their second boat.
1st December 2010.
By Steve Knauth

The liveaboard life of Peter and Debbie Verne started with a Caribbean sailboat charter in 1999. After the island getaway, the two architects returned to New York and began looking for an apartment in the city. The results were typical, the solution unorthodox.
“Returning to the stratospheric New York housing market and fresh off a wonderful week aboard led us to start looking at sailboats,” says Peter Verne. “Our running joke was, ‘How much smaller can it be than a Manhattan apartment?’ ”
