location icon Leros, Greece
Year 1999
Length 46 ft / 14.02 m
Builder/Manufacturer Bavaria Yachts (GER)

This reliable and well-kept yacht, with its white GRP hull, deck, and superstructure, offers a practical design for sailing enthusiasts. Its unique features, such as a sugar scoop style transom, fin with bulb keel, and spade rudder, alongside a central rear helming station, provide a steady and smooth sailing experience. The yacht is powered by a Volvo Penta 78hp engine with Turbo, supported by a large RACOR filter and an additional inline filter. A combination of 12v and 220v onboard voltage, sealed solid-state batteries, solar panels, shore power, and an inverter ensure consistent power onboard.

Inside, the yacht offers a spacious and comfortable living area. Two forward cabins with double berths and a single bunk above, along with two double berth aft cabins, can accommodate a sizeable group. The linear galley and 'U' shaped saloon create a homey atmosphere, while two heads with showers add to the convenience. On-deck, features like a new Lofrans electric windlass, multiple anchors, and a range of safety equipment make sailing and anchoring straightforward. Whether you're navigating open waters or enjoying a quiet anchorage, this yacht offers a no-nonsense, comfortable sailing experience.

The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.

Owners Comments

The boat has been used 6 months of the year and is always wintered on a Hardstand under professional supervision. She is well suited to liveaboards or long-term cruisers as it has everything required for this lifestyle and has been used for this purpose. All maintenance equipment, materials, tools etc on board will remain on the vessel to be included in the purchase price
