2005 45′ Beneteau First 44.7 ‘Salacia’

If you are looking for a turn key racer cruiser for long distance sailing that is as comfortable down below as she is on the race course, look no further than Salacia!
Outfitted with custom dinghy davits, solar arch mounted above the large bimini, spray hood, water maker and a great sailing wardrobe, she is ready to take you, your friends and family cruising, racing or long distance sailing.
You will feel confident hosting friends on board with a spacious well ventilated saloon, good sized cockpit and a built in swim platform for those days at anchor.
The owner’s stateroom forward with a private head will give you the privacy you expect whilst your guests enjoy large comfortable beds with great head room in the aft cabins.

Salacia has been preserved in the fresh waters of Lake Ontario, then lightly used here in the Caribbean since 2015 and the results are apparent when you step on board. With approximately 800 hours on the well maintained engine, opening up the engine compartment is a pleasant experience!

With two owners from new and very little use on the sails and equipment, this fast, well balanced easy to sail performance cruiser is worth your careful consideration.
