LIKE NEW is a shining example of the IP 465. Her owners have equipped her with carefully chosen gear and equipment, to a cost of about $130,000. above her factory specification. It can be said that she presents as a new boat, thoroughly debugged. After two years of climate-controlled indoor storage, LIKE NEW is fully commissioned, lying in one of RI's premier marinas, 2013 dockage paid. One could argue that she is better than new.
The center-cockpit arrangement plan allows for two gracious staterooms, each with head and shower compartment ensuite. Galley and navigation areas are amidships, along with a generous and sociable main saloon. Immediate overall impression is that she is a much larger yacht than her 46 feet might suggest.
The sellers understand the marketplace and are interested in offers. .

Beginning forward is a guest suite with centerline berth, storage to either side. Opening ports and an overhead hatch allows abundant natural light and ventilation. Private access is available to the forward head compartment.
Next aft is the main saloon with opposing settees, served by a drop-leaf table. Each settee will make into a secure sea berth, the port settee will open to a full twin size. The full- function navigation station is aft to port, within communication distance of the helm but securely out of the way.
The navigator's comfort is assured with a high-backed swivel chair. Navionics are attractively flush mounted (see ELECTRONICS) and full-sized chart space is available.
The galley is on the fore-and-aft axis, with some components to each side of the passageway aft. A deep stainless sink with separate rinsing compartment is appropriately on centerline. A stainless microwave is mounted overhead. The four burner Force 10 LPG stove with oven is outboard, along with separate fridge and freezer compartments and unique refrigerated drawer for quick-access items. Approximately 20 square feet of counter space is available, finished in Corian, with integral fiddles. Those with galley duties are securely out of the way but available to all main saloon socializing.
The owner's stateroom occupies the aft section of the yacht with an island queen berth and a large head compartment with separate shower stall. Storage is appropriate to long-term cruising with numerous drawers and apartment-sized hanging lockers. Bedding includes a custom inner-spring mattress (in the forward stateroom also). Six opening ports and a large overhead hatch guarantee abundant light and ventilation.
Headroom in the main saloon is 7'2", elsewhere is at least 6'6". Bulkheads and trim are finished in satin varnished light teak. The cabin soles are of teak and holly in the accommodations areas but are of non-skid GRP in areas of high traffic such as the companionway and galley. Handholds are sited where needed, reflecting the offshore intent of the design. Condition is absolutely impeccable. It cannot be emphasized enough, that LIKE NEW appears as though she has never left the showroom.
