1973 Columbia 45 Center Cockpit

Columbia 45 center cockpit for sale in Melbourne Fl.
PRICE REDUCTION NOW $50,000
This is a very well maintained 1973 Columbia 45 Center Cockpit. We cruised the Florida Keys for 3 months in 2017 and spent 3 months in the Abacos in the winter of 18. This boat is ready to leave today and return to the Bahamas. We will be sailing the east coast of Florida this year until we find the right buyer.We purchased the boat in 2014 and have done extensive upgrades ever since. The previous owner had the mast down and all the rigging inspected in 2012. They had a new mast step made and Rigging issues addressed(invoices available)
We started our upgrades from the bottom up. We had the hull professional sandblasted and then applied the Coppercoat Anti-fouling system.(2015) This is the best anti-fouling product on the market. All seacocks and backings were replaced. Installed a new prop, and replaced the cutlass bearing. (2015)
We tore out the old fridge, sink and counter top. We installed a new Isotherm Cruise 200 fridge/freezer. (2015) On our trip to the Bahamas we had room for 31 meals of meat in the freezer before we left. We then installed a new sink, counter top and back splash. Next we had a hardtop Bimini made(2015) and a full set of Strata Glass and Phifertex plus sun screens made.(2016)There are 10 sections of both products that can be interchanged any way you need. At the same time we had a full set of cockpit cushions and new salon cushions made using Sunbrella. We installed a Natures Head composting toilet(2017) in the aft head. What a great product this is. We had the decks sanded and any bad spots ground out, then primed and painted(2017)
This is a center cockpit model with an extra large aft cabin. The aft berth is larger then a king and has custom sheets. The salon has a 3 person couch and an armchair. You step down to the galley and salon table. Next is the forward head and roomy v-berth. There is a hanging locker forward and aft. TONS of storage!
This is a great cruising boat or would make a perfect live aboard.
Any item with the date in brackets means we have bills to show
