2008 Beneteau 49'

Princess of Tides is now for sale after a few years of great sailing in the Caribeans. She is now lying in St Georges in Grenada .
The boat is well laid out for the relaxed life style of the Caribbean, she has very roomy staterooms fore and aft with a large center saloon and spacious cockpit. We made many recent upgrades as we intended to keep Prince of Tides for a few more years. However, a change in circumstances has developed which resulted in a move to Europe and the decision has been made to sell Princess of Tides and purchase another yacht in Spain. Thus, the perspective purchaser is presented the opportunity of obtaining a premium vessel which is already in the cruising waters of the Caribbean .


The two cabin layout features two island style queen berths with plenty of storage area. There are two heads with separate showers, full standing headroom and good ventilation throughout. The large saloon and galley area provide an excellent entertainment center. The dinette easily accommodates 6 people with a table that folds down from a full sized dining table to a “cocktail” size center island. A very well equipped navigation station is across form the galley with a forward facing bench seat. The galley is located to port of the companionway. It is a very large and workable food preparation area with an abundance of cabinets, lockers, and drawers which make it ideal either at anchor or underway. Front loading fridge, top loading freezer, double s/s sink with hot and cold pressurised water, microwave, 3 burner propane cooker with over and broiler. Accented with granite coat countertops.


Accessible under the companionway steps, the 4JH4-TE four cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine was renewed in November 2013. Power is transmitted via a ZF-30 transmission to a three-bladed bronze Maxprop with rope cutter. The stern gland is a Volvo water fed gland, the Cutlass bearing was renewed in December 2014. Forward is a Lewmar TSL150 12v bow thruster with its own dedicated new battery.
