Beneteau First 45f5 - Antigua - $133,000

Antigua is a 1991 Beneteau First 45f5 now for sale eclusively with the team at YOTI on Sydney Harbour.

Designed with a fast hull, deep keel and long waterline, the 45F5 was the lovechild of Beneteau, Bruce Farr and Peninfarina (Ferrari). In the Beneteau 45F5 we see a high performance high volume yacht that oozes luxury, performance and elegance.

'Antigua' is powered by a near new Volvo D255 horse Diesel engine with 3-blade feathering prop. Her sails were upgraded by Doyles in 2011 with a new Carbon Kevlar Main and genoa - which sits on an underdeck furling system. She is extremely well equipped for offshore sailing with Raymarine colour chart plotter, Furuno Radar, SSB, ICOM VHF and remote and two iPad LCD screens mounted at the Nav station. She also features B&G cockpit instruments and Robertson Autopilot, and a Muir windlass with a newly upgraded motor winch which can be controlled by remote from the cockpit.

Below decks the First 45F5 offers warm tones in mahogany and offers an abundance of natural light thanks to a number of portlights and overhead hatches which also offer exceptionally good ventilation. She has a spacious 3-cabin layout with the master cabin forward boasting an ensuite head and day lounge. The second head and shower lie to port of the companionway. The inline galley has ample storage in cupboards and drawers with a large opening fridge and freezer finished off with marble bench tops. Her lounge area boasts a beautiful dining table in a luxurious interior with plush newly covered cushions in plush white leatherette.

The 45F5 is a beautifully constructed performance yacht suited to short or long distance cruising and racing. If you are looking for a fast cruiser that is suitable for comfortable offshore voyaging or a solid racing yacht at an affordable price, then look no further.
