FORMOSA 45

Broker's description:

This Formosa 45 for sale in Corfu is a rare opportunity to purchase a genuine bluewater cruising cutter. She is nicely presented inside and out. Attractive lines give that classic look and her beautiful wood interior (rarely found on boats built today) does not disappoint!  

Boarding this Formosa 45 is from the passerelle and swim platform. She has stainless steel “goalposts” with solar panels and wind generator and benefits from new genoa furling gear and standing rigging in 2019. Her centre cockpit is deep and secure and allows for a large volume interior. There are fore and aft companionways, the forward one descends into the saloon where a very practical and secure U shaped galley is located to port and a good sized chart table and navigation area is located to starboard. Both are located close to the centre of the boat where there is least movement and close at hand to the cockpit showing her offshore design intentions

The saloon has ‘U’ shaped seating around the saloon table to port and a straight settee to starboard. She has a lovely ambience in the saloon and a feature is the Dickinson heater. The forepeak houses a guest double cabin with a heads/ shower compartment to port. There is a fantastic amount of practical stowage throughout as you would expect on a yacht of this calibre. The aft end of the saloon has a walkthrough to the owner`s double cabin and there is access to the machinery space here with a pilot berth currently being used for extra stowage. The aft cabin has a centreline double berth, an ensuite heads / shower compartment and again a huge amount of practical usable stowage. There is a second companionway back up to the cockpit.

This Formosa 45 is a lovely looking yacht is ready to continue her travels with new owners in style, comfort and safety. Classic lines and are the hallmarks of this strongly built live-aboard, she combines quality construction with a bluewater cruising potential and a spacious, comfortable and practical interior.
