Entering down the companionway you find the galley to port and navigation station to the starboard. Just forward of the galley is the saloon with the table and setee/berth to the port of the mast and there is a couch/bunk to starboard. Moving forward into the companionway the head and nice cabinetry to the port and basin/shower to the starboard. The forepeak is a very well appointed v-berth area. Aft of the galley there is a very large stateroom with bunks to starboard, dressers and storage in the middle and a very nice bed to the port. The ensuite head and shower is located in the forward part of the stateroom.

The LeComte Fastnet 45 is very well laid out for long journeys especially by providing much needed privacy as found in the forward v-berth and lower aft berth areas. I really like the saloon area seating with dinette and starboard bunk/seating.

Broker's Comments

The LeComte Fastnet 45 was certainly built for bluewater adventures as demonstrated by her sailing history to Mexico and Australia/New Zealand. She is very well equipped to resume enjoyable safe journeys with her new owners. I really like the privacy afforded by the forward v-berth area and the aft cabin for long sailing legs in open sea. When you are looking for comfort, safety and affordability this is a well-regarded and proven boat.
