Broker's Comments

WOW! Take a look at this beauty! The owner has meticulously stocked this 45' sail boat with just about everything you could think of for long ocean cruises. Serves as a great livaboard as well! Check out the pictures and read through the details to see what I mean. She is a great value for any serious sailor looking to walk aboard ready to head out to sea. The boat was put to the test during a 3 month voyage from Texas to the Bahamas where her sea worthiness was confirmed. The new owner will most certainly appreciate the attention to detail the builder put into making this boat the outstanding sailing vessel she is.
