An unbelievable amount of thought and effort has gone into making this Hunter 45 excel in both form and function. Inside, it’s like being bathed in warm light throughout, with thoughtful touches like courtesy lighting, not one but two freezers (we mustn’t freeze our fish with our ice cream), a C-shaped galley, and ridiculous amounts of storage. It’s laid out perfectly for two couples, with two separate cabins and heads, and could easily accommodate six, with the drop-down table that converts to a double bed. The main living space includes the saloon, galley, and nav station. Anyone who wants to socialize can do so with ease and comfort. For those who’d prefer a little privacy, the main stateroom has a bench seat and a desk, or they could retreat to the fully enclosed cockpit, which is another entire living space unto itself.
On deck, it’s very easy to move around. The side decks are wide, the rigging is well-organised, hand-holds are everywhere you need them. With the same attention to detail, the windlass is located in the bow locker, low, out of sight. The toe rail is formed in the fibreglass resulting in a smooth, flowing line, easy on the eye. Cleats and D-rings are conveniently located where you need them, and where you won’t put your toes at risk. The propane locker lid doubles as a step, two huge lazarettes are aft, there a couple of seats built into the pushpit right beside a fantastic stern-tie reel. The list goes on and on.
Liveaboard? Yes. This boat comes with assumable liveaboard moorage at the West Bay Marina in Victoria (Esquimalt)—with management’s approval of course. If you’ve been looking for liveaboard moorage in the area, you’ll know how rare an opportunity this is.
DID IT really does have it all. If you want to get sailing on a beautiful boat in comfort and style, please, come and see her for yourself. You’ll be glad you did it.
DID IT is currently located in the beautiful West Bay Marina in Esquimalt. It’s located on a gated dock along with many other liveaboards, creating a community of like-minded people. Other docks in the marina are home to everything from stunningly beautiful float homes, to large powerboats, to small sailboats. The neighbourhood is quiet and pretty, with the Songhees walkway just a couple blocks away. The township of Esquimalt is nearby, complete with grocery store, coffee shop, liquor store, restaurants, drug store, and more.
Moorage is assumable, provided the new tenant gets approval from the West Bay management. This marina typically has a one-year-plus waiting list for liveaboard moorage, so if you’re interested in the boating lifestyle, this is just an amazing opportunity.
