Default Montecarlo / Montevideo 43 (balsa core hull)

Hi there,

Is there anyone out there in the sailing community that owns, has owned or has any experience/information on these vessels.

I have tried many sources in an attempt to gain information on the construction of these vessels but alas I have had very little luck.

My main interest pertains to the construction of the hull and if any owners out there have had any problems with the balsa core?

Thanks in advance.

If I remember correctly, the boat was designed by Angelo Lavranos whilst he still was resident in South Africa. Angelo had a finger in the pie with the construction of nearly all of his designes built in South Africa. He now resides in New Zealand and if you do a Google search, you will find his contact details. Send him an email and I am sure he will assist you to answer your questions. I think they were built by Fred Scholtz marine, which has long disappeared off the face of the earth.

Hi JohnT,

Thanks for the advice. I am in contact with Angelo and he has been very kind in supplying me some information on the vessel and history of its manufacturers.
