Second Star a 2007 Beneteau 49 that was the 2007 winner of Cruising World's Boat of The Year. She is a well-built performance cruising yacht with superior hull deck and interior design features. Her attractive exterior styling features a low profile trunk cabin, graceful bow and reverse counter stern, large cockpit with twin wheels and hinged helm to access the transom swim platform shower. Her 5' 9" shallow draft bulb keel provides access to many additional harbors and anchorages.  Electric winches, main and genoa furling and bow thruster facilitate short-handed sailing and docking. Solar, AC, Generator, and Watermaker make her a self-sustainable, bluewater cruising boat.

There are many design and engineering features that earn the Beneteau 49 a position among the best production yachts available under 50. A rugged keel grid with massive bilge stringers connects to the chain  plates and mast post base. The spacious custom 3 stateroom (convertible back to 2 stateroom) interior arrangement takes full advantage of the the 14' 9" beam and broad stern sections. Amidships is the impressive salon with long settees and two bench seats for dining. The large galley and navigation center are conveniently located adjacent to the companionway entry steps. Forward is a VIP/master cabin and aft is a full beam master or two guest cabins with doubles. Both forward and aft heads have showers.

Second Star has been well maintained and features all the luxury options, including new (2018) Flagship Marine AC with electric heat, generator, watermaker, DC refrigeration and freezer, and rugged stainless stern arch. The second owner working with a yacht design engineer at Hinckley Yachts in Stuart, FL enhanced the hull keel attachment area with larger stainless backing plates and extra keel grid laminates and had the aft cabin converted from a single diagonal berth to two berths with divider and separate additional door from the galley.

Second Star has enjoyed three knowledgeable owners who have maintained and upgraded her to a very high standard.
