2014 Beneteau First 45 | Scamp
Exclusively for sale with The Yacht Sales Co, Scamp is a superb example of the iconic Beneteau First 45 sailing yacht.
Built in France and delivered to Australia in 2014, Scamp has been meticulously maintained by her one fastidious owner since new.
She has the highest level of safety rating available (Category 1 offshore) and has successfully and comfortably completed three Sydney to Hobart races, five Brisbaneto Gladstones, and numerous long-distance offshore races and cruises along Australia’s east coast.
The Category 1 rating means that this owner has invested considerable time and money in ensuring that the yacht is setup with safety as a priority. For a cruising owner, this provides you with everything needed to safely head off on blue-water passages.
Scamp is equipped with a comprehensive sail inventory to satisfy the most ardent cruiser or cruiser-racer, comprising five jibs (including two carbon jibs and a furling jib), along with three spinnakers, a Code Zero, a triple-reefing carbon mainsail and a cruise laminate mainsail. Her new owner can just step aboard and set sail straight away.
On deck, the running rigging is in excellent condition, and the standing rod rigging has been recently inspected. Raymarine electronics and wireless mast-mounted tacktick instruments have been thoughtfully set up, along with AIS, UHF and VHF radios. Anti-fouling has just been completed in April 2021, along with an engine service. A recent survey, receiving glowing feedback for the condition of the boat, was conducted last year and is available to qualified buyers.
Below deck, Scamp is in outstanding condition: immaculate, well maintained, and with every element of the boat in excellent working order. She boasts a forward owner’s cabin featuring a double bed, private shower and head, and an abundance of storage. Two aft cabins featuring double beds are bright and well ventilated, and also include convenient partitions for use when hosting extended family, kids, or racing crew members, with a separate head and shower aft.
The galley is functional and well set up with a three-burner stove, Eno oven and microwave, large fridge/freezers and expansive storage spaces.
With Scamp’s huge sail inventory and outstanding overall condition, she is priced to sell and represents exceptional value.
