Just launched and ready to sail, soon to be commissioned. Gorgeous and highly customized, this delightful Little Harbor 46 center cockpit captures ones attention immediately. Her F.E. Hood lines and profile are as distinctive, delightfully unique, as they are functional.
With a superb deck layout and legendary Little Harbor Cockpit plan, she will yield years of great memories for your family as she has done so for the previous owners who have now reluctantly decided to move on to the next adventure.
Her interior consists of all the makings of a great cruising yacht, with two staterooms, salon, galley, Nav station. She has wonderful comfort, with ergonomic features still, oddly enough, not replicated on any other sailing yacht her size.
Her aft cabin has a centerline queen berth, and en suite head, and the forward stateroom has a large V berth, with upper fold down berths, allowing for sleeping for four adult guests, or more small children. The upper berths fold away when not in use.Viola is the only Little Harbor 46 with such an arrangement.
She has many upgrades recently to make her safe for extended passages, new Yanmar diesel auxiliary in 2015
This is a yacht not to miss. Aggressively priced given her outstanding condition and upgrades. More details to follow. Viola will be en route to Palma in later May, and to Faro in June.
