Jolly Harbor, Antigua & Barbuda
|Location:||Jolly Harbor, Antigua & Barbuda|
Whisper1 is very well maintained and equipped Bristol 45.5 from the design board of Ted Hood. As with all Bristols, the 45.5 is known for its comfortable layout and sea kindliness. A strong hull combined with an easily handled sail plan makes the 45.5 fun and easy to sail even with a small crew. Another desirable feature is her centerboard system which allows shallow water anchoring with the board up or good windward ability with the board down.
Whisper1 has been up and down the East Coast, the Bahamas, and down in the Caribbean. She is presently located in Jolly Harbor, Antigua.
She has numerous upgrades during this present ownership including:
|Water Tank Capacity:||150 Gallons|
|Fuel Tank Capacity:||98 Gallons|
|Holding Tank Capacity:||18 Gallons|
|Engine Manufacturer:||Betamarine (2015)|

Ted Hood and Bristol Yachts designed and built fine cruising yachts that combined excellent sailing qualities with comfort, safety and good storage.
She has two large double sleeping cabins, two heads with showers, a comfortable salon that can sleep three, and a large efficient galley.
The guest stateroom is forward with a large V-berth. The head and shower are next, aft to port with entry from the stateroom or from the companionway to the salon. The forward stateroom has ample storage in lockers, drawers & cubbies.
Opposite the forward head is a storage unit with drawers that is currently used for tools, parts and accessories.
The salon has a good-sized, centerline dining table with drop leaves and center wine storage. The L-shaped settee to port pulls out into double bed. The settee to starboard converts into a comfortable single berth. Aft of the starboard settee is the galley. Aft of the port settee is the freezer, and aft of the freezer is the forward facing navigation station.
