Beneteau First 45f5 - Serenade - $158,000

Serenade is a Beneteau First 45f5 exclusively for sale with YOTI.

Launched in 1995, serenade is notably a one owner yacht. These yachts are widely regarded as a modern classic. Designed with a fast hull, full keel and long waterline, the 45F5 was the lovechild of Beneteau, Bruce Farr and Pininfarina. In the First 45F5 we see a high performance high volume yacht that oozes luxury, performance and elegance. Pininfarina's touch is unmistakably all over this boat. Beautifully styled curved steps lead into a light spacious interior full of curves and cool design.

Below decks the First 45F5 offers warm tones in mahogany and offers an abundance of natural light and ventilation thanks to a number of portlights and overhead hatches. 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 cushions. The 45F5 is a beautifully constructed performance yacht suited to short or long distance cruising and racing.

There is a full instrument package with chart plotter at the helm, instruments at the nav station plus VHF and HF radios and new auto-pilot in 2017 with new linear drive arm in 2019. Bimini, dodger and sail bag were replaced new in 2017. Sails and running rigging have been regularly updated. The mast was removed and serviced in just 2019. There are the full six winches in the cockpit of which two are electric.

Serenade was built to survey standards for both Queensland and New South Wales and was operated as an exclusive cruise boat for Hayman Island resort. During that time the yacht had its own dedicated skipper and crew, taking champagne cruises for resort guests. This was contracted to Hayman Island for three years. There was never any bareboat charter work on Serenade.

For a three year period following, Serenade was delivered to Sydney and was refurbished to original condition by Geoff Tyers Marine Decoration specialists. Serenade then returned to South Australia where she was cruised by her owner and raced in one Port Lincoln Race Cruising division. The boat has been well maintained and constantly updated by the owner with full service records and invoices available.

This yacht is classic in its styling and presentation and with a consistently upgraded inventory she has all of the benefits that come with such an elegant proposition, without the maintenance costs. Contact Peter Mactier for further details and to arrange inspection in Adelaide.
