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. The design is known traditionally as a superb racing boat but this hull, with a shortened rig and custom cruising layout belowdecks, makes this boat a rare one indeed. While setup as a cruiser, Neptune’s Highway retained much of the design’s sailing characteristics – making the boat an excellent club racer, coastal cruiser, and performance bluewater cruiser.
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.

Neptune’s Highway’s custom layout offers generous accommodations with teak throughout . The extremely spacious aft master cabin features a walkaround double bed, portside settee, extensive storage on both sides, and direct access to the head. The guest cabin is a v-berth with an ensuite fold down stainless sink and ample storage to include a hanging locker. 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.
