Fully LOADED – Cruising Ready – 2018 Beneteau Oceanis 45.  


The Beneteau Oceanis 45 is a perfect cruiser, it sails extremely well in both light and heavy air and performs best when sailed ‘flat’. 

This was the first generation of Beneteau with the beam carried all the way aft, in conjunction with the hard chine, which increases the interior volume as well as making for an expansive cockpit, while delivering superior performance.  

The 3 cabin, 2 head layout makes this boat ideal for a family or a couple with visitors.  Cockpit and deck storage is phenomenal, the cockpit and side decks are wide making it easy to move around the boat.  Walk-through/drop down transom/swim platform makes access to and from the water and the dinghy easy.

ICW friendly mast (63’6″)

Inmast furling mainsail

 Bleu Flue* has just returned from the Bahamas and is ready to take you cruising again. On its return, the boat was hauled, cleaned, name and hailing port removed (ready for the new owners to apply both), waxed, bottom painted, detailed and …. ready for you to move aboard.

  * Name does not convey.


Access the boat through a wide companionway with 45 degree stairs and easy handholds. The stairway can be lifted up on hydraulic arms for easy access to the engine.

The L-shaped galley is to port. It is spacious, with double sink, stove and microwave, fridge and freezer and plentiful storage.  

Behind the galley is access to the port aft cabin with double berth, with good storage,  a view of the water (through in-hull window) and ventilation (through opening portlights) and a deck hatch.  The starboard aft cabin is also a double, with the same features and has access to the aft head, which can be accessed from the salon as well.  The aft head has Jabsco fresh water flush electric toilet, basin and separate shower stall.

Just forward of the door of the head is a storage cabinet and a mirror.  The Salon has a U-shaped settee to starboard with large table that can be dropped to form a double berth.  To port is a setup that allows for changing seating options.  The seats and the nav table/cocktail table slide in such a way that the seats can be separated by the table to create a cocktail table, or the table can be positioned fore or aft, with a 2-seat settee adjacent (see pictures).  A large flat-screen TV is on the starboard, forward bulkhead, (artfully disguised as a wall hanging). Light is through in-hull windows as well as eye-brow windows in coach roof as well as deck hatches which provide excellent ventilation.

The forward cabin/master cabin is extremely spacious with centerline queen-sized berth, storage to port and starboard and under the berth, full head with separate shower to starboard, hatches for ventilation and large in-hull windows that give light and a view of the water.
