Since purchasing Azuree 46 SHANTI, in 2016, after her tour of duty as a Berthon demo yacht, between Miami and New England, her owners have taken what was already a highly optioned example from the factory, and added many personal upgrades with a view to extended offshore cruising and racing. She competed in last year’s Marion Bermuda race, even with the dinghy still strapped to the foredeck, as they intended to carry on transatlantic after Bermuda.
As it happens, plans change, and work got in the way of those cruising plans, so SHANTI is now seriously for sale. She is on land at New England Boatworks, and the asking price has just been reduced to US$335,000.
Full specifications available here – [OFF MARKET]
In the last 2 years she has benefitted from US$80,000 of upgrades, including digital radar, new custom bimini and dodger, upholstery covers, and much more.
This clever, modern Rob Humphreys design has twin rudders, fixed carbon bowsprit, non-overlapping jib, retractable bowthruster, generator, air conditioning, electric winches, fold-out sunbeds in the cockpit, and a large 3-cabin 2 heads compartment interior.
It has been up on the plane with the main and jib; and with a gennaker, or code zero, in about 20 knots, you can expect speeds in the high teens.
There are few late model yachts for sale at the moment that are not ‘generic’. This yacht is anything but generic. Prepare to be impressed.
