There can be no doubting the pedigree of the Aquastar range of semi displacement cruisers with the 45 being no exception. Aquastar build true all weather motor yachts which gives great confidence to owners considering longer cruises although they are equally at home pottering around the Solent. This example of the Aquastar 45 has been very well maintained by an experienced boat owner and has been cruised to the Channel Islands, Brittany and is also a regular visitor to Southern Ireland.
Well equipped and keenly priced, this Aquastar 45 is available for viewing 7 days a week by prior appointment.
** New listing, full set of photos to follow**
When we bought Fleur, we required a boat that could go anywhere when we, not the weather decided; allowed us to cook, eat, and drink on passage; have a minimum cruising speed of 15 knots and sensible economy; that had excellent storage space for books and charts and that would be a "HOME" for 4 people for a 6-8 week cruise.
Few boats under 50 feet meet this criteria but the Aquastar combined with Nelson pedigree defined this boat.
We are only selling Fleur as our boating plans have now moved on.
