'78 Heritage Yacht West Indies 46

The perfect BIG center cockpit, shoal draft cruising sailboat! Just returned from 2,000+nm cruise from Guatemala. Asking $110,000. The boat is currently located in Annapolis, Md.

Built by Charlie Morgan's Heritage Yacht company in 1978. She is a center cockpit heavy duty cruiser that performs beautifully in all kinds of weather. With up to 1" thicknesses of the fiberglass the boat is built like a tank but will cruise at 8Kts to 10Kts. The center cockpit design allows for two roomy staterooms, a large saloon with galley and a nav station with full chart storage underneath, a good sized engine room and loads of storage space. The roomy forward V-berth with a head with shower sleeps two adults. The saloon with a U-shaped settee that converts into a queen size bed and a pilot berth will sleep three adults. The large aft owner's cabin with a queen size bed and a head with shower will sleep two adults. I have spent three years to upgrade and renew many of the boat's features. Here are some of the details on this beautiful piece of maritime heritage:

Re: '78 Heritage Yacht West Indies 46

This is a great boat. Friends of our's Dean and Nancy of Pegasus just sold theirs this spring. Luckily, the new owners have become great friends.

Anyone interested in a boat like this should strongly consider the Heritage... so few come on the market.

Thanks zboss - much appreciate the vote of confidence. She really is a heavy duty bluewater cruiser with a huge amount of space. She is the largest 46 footer ever built and has space about the same as a 52 footer. There are not many of these around.

I have posted some additional pictures at S/V VICKY FOR SALE! - Home - had some comments that deck/cockpit pictures would help. I also added some of the engine room.

Re: '78 Heritage Yacht West Indies 46

I have to wonder why you are selling it after doing so much upgrade work!

Hmm, good question - it wasn't an easy decision after all those hours in hot humid conditions to get things to where they are now.

To start with, the original plan was for a two-person crew (myself and my wife). My wife developed arthritis in her hands and therefore can't help out anymore. The alternative would be making yet more improvements as a singe-hander. I'm not saying it can't be done but I simply don't have the funds.

Another reason is that we are in the process of adopting our 1 and 3 year old grandkids due to family issues. Although I know that some other parents take their kids with them, we feel that ours are too young to safely go with us - we have been through some bad storms and can't see how we would subject our kids to such situations.
