Storymaker listing description
This beautiful Beneteau Oceanis 54 is ready to take her next owners on unforgettable adventures. No expense was spared in upgrading her with every option from the factory, from the dual Nautica carbon fiber steering wheels to the laser-cut molded interior carpet. She’s been loved from the moment she first splashed; never chartered, never been hurricane-damaged and meticulously maintained by live-aboard owners since 2012.
She’s equipped for comfortable offshore cruising and her circumnavigation track record proves it. Onan 7KW Generator, Dessalator D60 watermaker (60 L/hr), two refrigerators, and huge water tanks (970 L) and fuel tanks (460 L) keep you off the dock and free to cruise.
At anchor, she’s often the best-looking boat in the harbor. From her striking blue hull to full teak decks to the newly installed canvas, she’s a looker! Her interior is stunning, with warm white carpet & upholstery giving the salon an airy & spacious feel. She comes equipped with a 3 zone CruiseAir climate control system, and it works great at the dock and away at anchor. Her 4-cabin layout is great for either large families or having extra rooms for guests and equipment. All cabins have big beds, large closets, ample head-room, and lots of storage beneath the beds. One cabin is pre-plumbed for a washing machine. All 3 heads have en-suite access from 3 cabins & boast quiet-flush electric toilets.
At sea, her sail configuration makes it easy to double-hand with all lines running to the cockpit. Dual carbon fiber steering wheels & full Raymarine navigation instruments make the helmsman’s job a joy. The large seating area with cozy cushions and varnished cockpit table give the rest of the crew a luxurious perch to enjoy the passage.
Her rigging is sound (rigging inspection recently completed), her sails cared for (minor recommended repairs recently completed), her hull intact (never grounded & anti-fouled in Nov. ‘18), and her engine (Yanmar 4JH4-HTE) & generator (Cummins Onan Model MDKBL) are as reliable as they come. This boat has been taken around the world by one couple, then cruised in the Caribbean by a family with 3 young kids; quite the versatile vessel! It’s an exceptional condition, intelligent layout, and an attractive price makes her an ideal boat for many types of sailors.
Currently, for sale in Grenada, she’s safely riding out hurricane season in the well-protected harbor of St. Georges at Port Louis Marina.
