Grabau International is delighted to announce the revised pricing of the 2016 Beneteau Oceanis 45 ‘MAJKA‘
Professionally maintained one-owner charter version of this popular Finot-Conq design with 4-cabin, 2-heads interior layout by Nauta Design.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Launched in 2016, MAJKA has been professionally maintained as part of a managed charter fleet based in Croatia.
Her highlights include:- • 4-double cabin layout plus spacious saloon and two heads • GRP decks (no teak deck maintenance) • Deep draft option (2.27m) keel for improved performance and stability • Battened mainsail with stackpack and lazyjacks • Yanmar 54hp engine with sail drive • Max Power Bowthruster • Bimini, sprayhood and cockpit cushions • B & G electronics package with chart plotter • Fusion music system USB/Bluetooth/radio • Deck lighting • Webasto heating system • Electric fans to the saloon • Bulkhead mounted Finlux LCD TV/DVD • Blinds • Filtered water tap in the galley • Tender and outboard – Mercury 3.5hp 4-stroke • Electrically operated transom swim platform • Gates to port and starboard • Liferaft
Please Note: An alternative purchase scheme is available for this yacht. She can be purchased for a significantly lower selling price provided she remains in her existing charter fleet for three years with 65% of charter income going to the new owner (35% being retained by the charter company). The new owner will have unlimited use of the boat between September and May plus one week usage in May and one week in September. Please contact us for full details of this arrangement.
The Oceanis 45 is the little sister to the new Oceanis 50 that debuted last year. The themes that made that boat so popular have been refined in the new 45-footer. The mainsheet runs to an arch at the forward end of the cockpit, so the cockpit is not obstructed by the sheet and tackle as you tack or jibe. The 45 has an attractive cockpit table trimmed in teak, with a pod at its aft end for the chartplotter. Five of us ate comfortably around the table and we could have fit three more in a pinch.
The 45 has a nearly full-beam folding transom that works as an aft bench when it is up and as a huge water-sports platform when lowered. It is large enough for swimming and sunning, using SCUBA gear or rigging a sailing dinghy. The ladder is demountable and is designed like a swimming pool ladder so it is really easy to climb.
Storage on deck is often an issue in boats with two aft cabins and a full width forward cabin. In the 45, lockers have been included under the cockpit sole aft, under the cockpit seats and in a huge locker forward of the forward cabin. This “garage” is deep and large enough for all of your fenders, docking lines, a couple of spinnakers, and possibly a couple of folding bikes.
Like the Oceanis 50, the 45 feels like a big boat underfoot and has plenty of space on deck for a big sailing party. But, the boat sails well and is simple and easy to handle for a couple or even a singlehander.
The new production boats coming in from Europe, where the companies are coming out with new models every year, are evolving quickly. The extremely wide transoms—and now the chines we see in the Oceanis 45 and other production boats—look massive next to a more traditional boat. The high topsides and low cabintops add to the visual mass of the boats, so they again look huge in comparison to traditional designs. Yet, form follows function. The new designs sail flatter and faster and are easier to sail than traditional boats, and the accommodations below are simply vaster and more comfortable.
Modern production techniques and economies of scale allow companies like Beneteau to buy materials, gear, spars and engineering at very competitive prices, which allows them to pass along savings to their owners. In our view, the value proposition of the new Oceanis 45 and other boats in this category has never been better. In the Oceanis 45, you really do get a lot of boat and a lot of ocean sailing capability for a very reasonable price. Article taken from Cruising Compass October 16th 2014 by Andrew Cross
