Rare to the brokerage market in the UK this is a great opportunity to own a 2018 model year Beneteau Oceanis 45 found in exceptional condition.

With three double cabins and two heads, this Beneteau Oceanis 45 offers comfortable accomodation for 6 guests. The large cockpit provides plenty of outside seating for entertaining and benefits from a large cockpit table.

A stunning and powerful offshore cruiser that not only sails beautifully but is equipped to the highest standard. The Beneteau Oceanis 45 won the European Sailboat of the Year Award in 2012 and persuaded the jury with her concept and a combination of innovative details such as a well-balanced sail plan, a rig that’s stepped farther aft, a Targa bar above the companionway that keeps the clutter out of the cockpit, wide and gently descending companionway steps, a large and well-organised cockpit, and a stern hatch that doubles as a swim platform when lowered.

This very well cared for Beneteau Oceanis 45 is auxiliary powered by a Yanmar 54Hp diesel engine. The engine has been very well maintained, and comes with a full set of engine spares. 

Key features of this Beneteau Oceanis 45 include; Bow thruster, B&G 4g Radar, forward facing camera on bow, 4G receiver, Intellian I3 satellite receiver / tv, 1v marine LED TV, microwave, 2000w inverter and dedicated circuit with sockets,  sockets with USB chargers, Top of the range Darglo Feathering Prop, with scissor style rope cutter fitted 2 seasons ago, full cockpit tent (Factory Spec), winch covers, custom cockpit table cover, new Lazy Bag, Lines, all custom made at Saturn sails new last season, full dinghy cover for use when on Davits , custom made , running rigging updated as necessary , Rocna 25KG anchor with 100m of chain, original delta as spare, Simpson SS cockpit hoist for outboard or loading , life raft , EPIRB, Suzuki 4 stroke (serviced annually / 3 seasons old) Ribeye small RIB tender with aluminium hull, large capacity 5.6 KG Propane Cylinder, Simarine Blue Electrical management system with Bluetooth, house batteries updated to AGM replacing original Lead Acid, new starter battery 24 months ago, Webasto blown air heating system fitted at time of purchase, new head pumps fitted, engine serviced annually, full set of spares on board.

Owners Comment's
Family circumstances have made it necessary for me to part company from my beloved OC45 Highlander Ecosse. I have owned her from new. She is a 2018 hull number with three cabins. Only skippered by me and maintained fastidiously. I thought we would have her as our forever boat, but life has thrown a curve ball at us.

With 1996 cruising miles and 690 engine hours she is in beautiful condition.  

I have added numerous extras to this boat and finessed thd ergonomics to the highest standards. She has spent her life on the Clyde and cruised the West Coast of Scotland, Ireland’s NE Coast and The Isle of Man.
