43' Beneteau Oceanis 43, 2010. Asking $159,000. The Beneteau 43 is a fast cruising design that offers a dual helm, large cockpit, generous beam with very easy access from the water via the swim platform and walk-through transom. Still in her original ownership and even though she was originally in charter, her usage and hours are still moderate and it is clear that her owners have taken special care to keep her in great condition. Unlike many of her three cabin sister ships, Barefoot Life offers the preferred two head layout with a spacious separate shower stall.
Her owners have nicely upgraded her for tropical cruising, a standout feature being a custom arch that holds her solar panels as well as davits for the dinghy. In recent times she has also received some valuable electronics and electrical upgrades, her sails replaced and most of her ground tackle (including a new windlass) upgraded. She is equipped with a large RIB and outboard, an in-date offshore life raft, an EPIRB and even a water maker; so she really is all ready to once again go cruising off the grid with her next owner.

She has two well maintained Perkins M 225 turbo diesels and is both economical and seaworthy. She would make a great Caribbean cruiser and would be equally at home in coastal waters as she is in inter island passages. Priced aggressively for a quick sale, the owners are open to reasonable offers. Jabale is located in the USVI and is available virtually immediately. .

45' Dufour 425 Gran' Large 2012, Air, Water Maker, Late Model. NOW asking $135,000 from $149,000. As quite possibly the first monohull to be available for purchase out of MarineMax’s new charter fleet in the BVI, this is no ordinary ex-charter boat offering! As a 2012 model she has done less chartering than most so only has moderate engine hours on her almost new looking engine and is equipped with many features not found on other charter vessels of this length, namely a water maker, electric heads, touch screen chart plotter and full dockside air con. She shows cleanly, offers a performance hull, great sized cockpit and comfortable interior accommodations including a very comfortable center queen bed forward with separate ensuite shower and head. Although not yet as well known in North America as the Beneteaus and Jeanneaus these vessels are just as well designed and constructed and in some ways are superior. She has been aggressively priced for a timely sale and we welcome your viewing soonest!

41' Morgan/Catalina 41 Classic, 1987. Bargain World Cruiser! NOW asking $39,000 from $49,000. The current owners of Zig Zag have sailed the boat in the local waters for the last eight years with seasonal layups in Puerto Rico and the BVI.
The Morgan Classic 41s were a development of the Morgan Out Island series but featured a better, more modern hull form and a new deck design as well. So in reality, they are a completely different boat than the Out Island series, but LOOK similar! They actually sail very good and these yachts can be exceptional blue water capable cruisers.
Although Zig Zag would require some updates and additional equipment for longer distance sailing, she has been maintained in cruise ready condition for her local waters and represents a very good value for someone looking for a roomy, safe coastal cruiser or for people looking for a low priced foundation on which to turn into an ideal long distance cruising yacht.
Contact listing broker Todd Duff for many additional detail photos and a complete verbal description of this great boat! Email the listing broker Todd Duff, at email@example.com or call 1-877-310-9458 for information.
PRICE DROP - 04/26/16
60' Southern Ocean Hull #19, 1979. True Passagemaker, Super Solid. NOW asking $200,000 from $250,000. This Ocean 60 Schooner is truly a blue water sailing vessel custom built for chartering but also well built and durable for cruisers wishing to circumnavigate the globe. The cockpit for example is very deep and safe but also comfortable for cruising crew and friends alike. The interior is well thought out and comfortable yet practical and somehow luxurious.
‘Flamboyance’ has been chartering all her life with her current, and only second, owner using her just 6 months a year and keeping her in truly excellent condition. Dry stored and prepared for the summer hurricane season, her asking price instantly reflects her owner’s motivation to sell and some very discerning new owner will be very happy indeed.

30' J Boats J30 1981 Classic Race Boat, Nicely Maintained!! NOW Asking $14,000 from $16,500. The J 30 set the standard for mid-sized cruiser racers, with over 500 hulls built and located throughout the racing world, including the BVI of course. They can also double as an affordable pocket cruiser that has great performance yet good manners, even in severe weather. This boat has had her interior nicely preserved so that it is still very presentable. The owner is a knowledgeable yachtsman, having owned several boats over his life and has made a point of keeping this boat in good shape by using some of the best repair services available. When necessary, coring has been replaced, stainless steel and teak also, and her topsides sport a nice Awlgrip paint job that still looks fresh.
With her reliable Yanmar diesel and three of her four race sails new in the last two years (all in excellent condition) along with her standing rigging having been renewed in 2009, this boat is ready and waiting to continue her racing career with her next owner and/or enjoy some affordable pocket cruising.

32' Beneteau First 32s5, 1990. Heavily Upgraded Including Young Engine! NOW asking $29,950 from $32,000. True performance combined with ease of handling and a comfortable interior are the hallmarks of the Beneteau First 32s5. A clean deck layout, uncomplicated sail plan and a fast hull designed by Jean Berret make sailing her a joyous experience. Island Hopper is a unique offering, having been in private use for over a decade now she has been more heavily upgraded than any other boat of this size that I have had the pleasure of listing in my 18 years of brokering! It is clich� but in this case the list of upgrades really is far too numerous to list in my comments.
Highlights include a very young engine with about 400 hours on it, a full hull and deck Awlgrip respray, sails and standing rigging replaced in the current ownership, but this is just the beginning. Please see her full spec details to be able to truly appreciate how much love and attention this vessel has received. In many ways she shows like a very young vessel indeed, she has been competitively priced and will make the perfect boat for the buyer looking for a very well maintained boat at a very affordable price.

NEW LISTING - 04/22/16
42' Robertson & Caine Leopard 42, 2003. Asking $219,000. The Leopard 42 has deservedly earned a reputation for being a more than capable blue water cruiser (having sailed to the BVI from South Africa on her own bottom), yet is equally at home providing a super comfortable floating home for live aboard cruisers in the Caribbean or elsewhere. She offers four comfortable cabins, with the two forward cabins offering the sought after walk around queen beds, as well as four heads, a spacious salon and galley and well-designed cockpit and helm station.
La Bella Vita is in her second ownership and has been used primarily as a instructor/captained sailing school boat in St Thomas. Her upgrades in recent years are numerous and impressive with too many to list here. Upgrade highlights just in the last two years include a new generator and air con units, all new standing rigging including new chain plates, a new Quantum mainsail, a New Profurl genoa furling unit and new solar panels.
She has been priced at the lower end of the scale for these boats to reflect her relatively high usage, we feel she offers good value for her next owner due to so many of her significant and costly systems having been recently replaced. Email the listing broker, Chris Simpson, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-310-9458 for information.
NEW LISTING - 04/21/16
44' Beneteau 445, 1994. Asking $92,000. The Bruce Farr designed Beneteau Oceanis has earned a well-deserved reputation for not only being one of the swiftest Oceanis designs of their time (the sweetheart of all bareboat regatta racers) but also providing a spacious cockpit and particularly comfortable interior, with the center queen master cabin forward along with a large owner’s head compartment. Honiara has been owned for many years by a knowledgeable couple who have kept her in great shape and constantly upgraded and used for owner captain and crew charters, which ensures that she must be maintained in good condition and look cosmetically great.
Her list of upgrades is numerous, her standing rigging and engine have been replaced, she has a young outboard with large RIB dinghy, all her house batteries were replaced just last year and many electronic have been upgraded and replaced in the last few years, especially worthy of note being her radar chart plotter, just installed in 2015. She is also nicely cruise equipped to include solar and dual refrigeration systems
She shows very nicely inside and out. Considering her good condition and her high level of equipping, we feel she is now attractively priced and should be of serious interest to cruisers looking for a boat in the mid 40’s LOA that can be purchased sub $100K.
