Fort Lauderdale, FL
|Yacht Name:||Neptune's Highway|
|Location:||Fort Lauderdale, FL|
Renowned sailing characteristics, spacious accommodations, and continuous upgrades make this boat a must-see. Laurie Davidson is perhaps New Zealand's most celebrated designer for his America's Cup and Whitbread successes as well as his cruising designs. This boat is known for its balanced helm, windward ability, stability, and fast and comfortable passages. Laurie Davidson cruisers rarely come on the market. Neptunes Highway is an exceptional cruiser for coastal or blue water sailing at an exceptional price point.
The current owners have recently returned from an 8-year circumnavigation and have completed a major refit. Virtually all equipment will go with the boat, and it is truly ready to sail away. A proven cruiser for all oceans!

The single head is generous in size and has access from both the salon and master cabin. The salon features a double-leaf table flanked by two settee berths. On the port and starboard sides, what would normally be pipeberths for racing crew, have been converted to deep storage. Aft of the starboard settee is a navigation station with a recently upgraded electrical panel.
Aft of the galley is the master stateroom with queen-sized centerline berth, settee to port, additional bench seat forward, and excellent airflow. Abundant storage both to port and starboard, and access to the head/shower is starboard-side forward.
