Hey cruisers! Don't miss the boat!


Think of it this way, you could buy a Tayana 48 for about 30% more! This boat is a capable cruiser similar to a Tayana 48. You really must see this boat!

The current owner has spent the last six years tied to a dock while working and upgrading this boat for the great adventure. Now they won’t be going. It’s your opportunity!

Complete with Leisurefurl, bow thruster, washer and dryer, great refrigeration, icemaker, refit in 2005. This boat has everything you want! She is very well maintained with loads of upgrades! Keep reading….

Those of you who have never heard of a Macintosh 47 will be very happy to know that it is a great cruising boat and wonderful live aboard. The Macintosh 47 line of blue water cruising yachts was the brainchild of Mr. Herb Gutter, a former project manager for Hans Christian. Mr. Gutter saw a need for a more modern yacht that would be lower maintenance and faster. “Quality, craftsmanship, seaworthiness and safety are the four cornerstones of the Macintosh line of sailing yachts. Born from experience and tested values, the Macintosh 47 is a true performance bluewater cruiser, crafted with tremendous attention to detail, crew safety and crew comfort.” The in house designer at Macintosh Yachts was Tim Kings. He did a great job. The Macintosh 47 is a beautiful center cockpit two stateroom cruiser with a long modified fin keel of 6’ draft, lead ballast, and a skeg mounted rudder. Similar to a Taswell 49 and Norseman 447, the underbody is modern and efficient and with the integral tankage she has load carrying capacity needed for cruising. With her long waterline length of 40’ and moderate beam at 14’4” she’s well proportioned and at a 30K pound displacement weight, she actually sails well. She’s not a race boat but as a cruising home afloat that can take you anywhere, you’ll be very impressed.

And I mean very impressed! Down below, you’ll find the that the quality of the workmanship and joinery is evident with teak bulkheads and teak and holly sole. The interior layout of this boat is most amazing as it gives you more space than a small condo. We generally laugh when people mention the washer drier, but guess what, Libre Vie has it! With three staterooms including the owners spacious aft cabin and ensuite head, there is plenty of space. With seventeen fixed windows new in ’04 and Lewmar overhead deck hatches and opening ports, you have good ventilation. But of course there is air conditioning and lots of Hella fans to keep you cool.

Libre Vie has been fortunate to receive the best of care and upgrades by its two owners. The first owner did a major refit as he made plans to take off cruising, but has oft happens, he did not go far. The current owners had great plans of retiring and cruising far, but once again one job led to another and they simply lived comfortably aboard and kept upgrading the boat. From about 2013-2016 they added extensive cruising gear including solar panels and wind generator. You’ll see that all the refitting of the rigging and sails was done in 2005 which is pretty wonderful. And back in 2010, the boat got a whole new Vinylester bottom by Osmotec. That’s great too!
