BRISTOL 45.5 DESTINY avail. for viewing in South FL

After living aboard our Bristol 45.5, DESTINY, for five years in the Caribbean and Med, we think we know what makes a comfortable cruising boat. This Ted Hood designed, shoal draft centerboard boat was built in Bristol, Rhode Island in 1985 and refitted at the Hood yard in Portsmouth, R.I. in 1999. DESTINY features a queen berth and stall shower in the master cabin, 2 heads, accommodations for 6, gorgeous cherry wood and reverse cycle a/c and heat. It comes equipped with everything you need to go sailing except your toothbrush.

For detailed specs, pictures and contact info see

DESTINY is currently available for viewing in West Palm Beach/Ft. Lauderdale and ready to take you to the Bahamas for Caribbean for the winter. Maybe our DESTINY is your destiny!

Re: BRISTOL 45.5 DESTINY avail. for viewing in South FL

There's a whole lot more on their web page. I only copied and pasted a bit of it.

It does have an 8KW Westerbeke, plus 2 X 55A engine alternators.

Here's the rest of the text:

“As built” the BRISTOL 45.5 series was constructed @ hand layup process with alternating layers of fiberglass mat and woven roving for her hull. The deck also features the “hand layup process” with fiberglass mat & cloth. It is cored with balsa core material. . .in blocks mounted on a scrim and individually sealed with resin. The headliner is gelcoated. The ballast is lead, internally cast. The centerboard is molded fiberglass. . .and is not a “ballast item”. . .and is secured by a bronze pin through fiberglass pipe. The centerboard is actuated via a stainless steel wire/rope system via a MERRIMAN deck-mounted C/B friction winch on the cabin house. The centerboard design gives the convenience of 4’11″ shoal draft. While the 11ft. overall draft with the centerboard down gives great upwind performance. The rudder is of molded fiberglass construction molded around a bronze stock with welded plates bearing on the hull, the top of the stock itself and an ample skeg that provides protection for the rudder and prop.

Cockpit helm station:
EDSON pedestal steering w/ oversized 40” wheel
Wheel brake
• Binnacle/wheel guard, stainless steel
• Single-lever engine controls for both transmission & throttle
• Teak sole in cockpit (new 1999)
• Varnished teak cockpit table w/ fold-out leaves & integral teak drink holder (new 1999)
• Plexiglass doors, teak screens and storm boards for companionway (new 1999)

Binnacle, compass, GPS

Drink holder and Cockpit table extended

Deck Gear:

• Stainless steel stern rail w/ double rails
• Double lifelines with gates, port & starboard (new 1999), approx. 30” high
Cleats: 2×12” stainless steel bow, 4×12” aluminum midships & 2x amidship, 2x stern
• Bow stemhead fitting, stainless steel with 2×12” stainless steel cleats w/ integral anchor rollers, hawses and tack fitting

• Bow anchor well, double compartments with chain locker below
• Lazarette locker w/ access by (2) large LEWMAR hatches (new in 1997)

• Dorade vents, 2x PERKO stainless steel (new 1999) w/ teak mounting boxes and stainless steel guards
• Main Salon sliding hatch with fiberglass seahood and stainless steel slider rails

Accomodations, General

As a general overview, it should be noted that DESTINY is a superb example of the craft of BRISTOL YACHTS. Her outstanding full satin-varnished (gloss for the trim areas & cabinet doors) teak joinery, and “real” teak and holly cabin sole (just lift up the floorboards and check out the teak thickness. . .and the real holly inserts!) are not currently replicated in the modern marketplace. Check out the dovetail joints for the cabinetry.

DESTINY is a solid, well-maintained yacht that has had only three owners since “day one”. She underwent a general refit in 1999 that brought her back to the Bristol condition she deserved and has been maintained and upgraded by the current owners. DESTINY is currently in Fort Pierce, Florida. She has been lived aboard for the last 4 years in the Med (shipped from St. Thomas to Genoa, IT in April, 2009) so is completely set up for comfortable, liveaboard, world-wide cruising.

Generously proportioned throughout with at least 6’8” or so of headroom DESTINY can easily accommodate taller sailors as well as those who just want the feeling of “more room” and the resultant light and space below.

Accomodations, Master Cabin & Head

DESTINY has a custom Aft-Cabin configuration. To starboard, there is a nice Queen-size berth and to port there is a comfortable upholstered settee.

Queen berth in Master Cabin has plenty of headroom; note full length mirror on inside of head door.

Port side settee has storage under

Excellent storage space is provided on the port side by a large hanging locker and a built-in set of drawers. A small shelf on the starboard side stores bedside essentials. In addition, there is storage space beneath the berth and settee as well as easy access to such essential ship’s equipment as the autopilot, battery charger, batteries, inverter, water heater, shaft seal, bilge pump and steering gear. Another nice touch is a removable plexi “mini-leeboard” for the portside settee that’s handy for keeping loose gear securely in place while underway.

Master Cabin hanging locker & drawers on port

There is a separate control panel for the reverse-cycle heat & airconditioning system along with a HELLA fan, to provide comfort in all climate conditions.

The large Master/Aft cabin berth is upholstered in a neutral beige cotton material. The opposite settee has neutral stain resistant ULTRASUEDE fabric (new in 2011).

Second view of settee in Master Cabin

The Master Head is private and ensuite to the Master Cabin. It features a Corian countertop with integral sink and PFISTER faucet set (new in 1999). There is a full separate stall shower with tile/teak floor and teak seat. A large storage area is behind a door outboard of the shower. The shower fixtures provide a constant water temperature and it has a multi-flow showerhead (new in 2008). The RARITAN electric head, including all related plumbing, along with a 25 US Gallon holding tank and discharge pump were installed in 1999.

Accommodations, Main Salon

DESTINY’s Main Salon is located amidships, as typical of center cockpit designs, and the overall quality and effect of the outstanding teak joinery becomes immediately apparent upon inspection. The satin-varnish finish (gloss for trim areas and doors) and the varnished teak and holly cabin sole give a nice rich & warm feel to this traditionally-styled yacht.

On the port side, there is an L-shaped settee with a drop leaf dining table (varnished teak, of course, with hidden bottle storage) that easily converts into a double berth. Between the L-shaped settee and the Nav Station is the large freezer unit and above it a dedicated liquor storage cabinet. To starboard, there is a straight settee that pulls out to become a comfortable single berth (with lee cloth if needed). There is excellent storage above, behind and underneath the settees on both sides, as well as a sizeable hanging locker with shelf space in the rear that is located forward of the straight settee on the starboard side.

In 1999 all the upholstery in the Main Salon was replaced with a high quality ULTRASUEDE removable covers in light beige color. The ULTRASUEDE is highly stain resistant and WASHABLE, as are the Salon curtains which were new in 1999 as well. The Main Salon has 12V lighting on dimmers and 110V lighting. The smoked plexi-glass port lights were new in 2011.

There is a separate control panel for the reverse-cycle heat & airconditioning system, along with a HELLA fan, to provide comfort in all climate conditions.

Accommodations, Nav Station

The rear-facing Nav Station is also generously-sized, and has navy blue leather-like upholstery (new in 2011) . It is located just aft of the Main Salon port side L-shaped settee.

Nav Station, book shelf

Instrument panel opposite Nav Station

All the electronics are nicely installed in the matte-black finish panel façade (new 1999). The lift-up chart table houses a storage area for a computer keyboard and additional storage is conveniently provided in an adjacent book shelf and compartment.

A short passage leading aft to the Master Cabin provides good access to the electrical panel as well as the engine and generator space. There are custom “lift off” doors that facilitate ease of entry.

Passage to Master Cabin, Nav Station to port


The Galley is located to starboard at the foot of the companionway and aft of the Main Salon, and is of the “U” shaped “wraparound” style.
The Galley was completely rebuilt in 1999. At that time, the standard Formica countertops were replaced with MONTEBLANC Corian and a new stainless steel double sink installed. Complementing the ample BRISTOL storage capabilities “as built”, a custom teak cabinet was constructed to hold the Galley china, glassware and silverware.

Accommodations, Guest Cabin & Head

DESTINY’S Guest (Forward) Cabin features a very large “V” berth and a filler piece that expands it even further. The insert is conveniently stored in a special overhead rack.

Forward Guest Cabin

Excellent storage space is provided by the area beneath the berth itself as well as the adjacent hanging lockers (one on each side of the cabin) drawers and cabinets. Access to the chain locker is via a special panel in the forward transverse bulkhead.

Closed storage over berth both sides

Port side hanging locker and drawers under mirrors same on starboard; AC unit for forward cabin is on port also.

The Guest/Forward “V” berth is upholstered in removable light blue ULTRASUEDE covers (new 2008) that are stain resistant and WASHABLE.

There is a separate control panel for the reverse-cycle heat & airconditioning system along with a HELLA fan, to provide comfort in all climate conditions.

The Guest/Forward is on the port side ensuite to the Guest/Forward Cabin and has a second access door from the Main Salon. As with the Main Salon it has a CORIAN countertop with integral sink as well as PFISTER faucet set (new in 1999).

Forward head has hand held shower, tile & teak floor and lots of storage. . .

The head is equipped with a VACUFLUSH electric fresh water head (new 2000) and all related plumbing including a 25 US Gallon holding tank and discharge pump. There is a hand held shower and shower curtain rod.

Forward head has doors from both forward and main cabins and a large oval wall mounted mirror

Spars, Sails, Rigging & Winches

DESTINY is outfitted with the optional aluminum HOOD “Stowaway” roller-furling mainsail management system that has the optional electric actuating system with the standard manual (backup) capability. The mast and boom were Awlgripped white in 1999. There is a single set of spreaders and the standing rigging 1z19 stainless steel wire with Stayloc fittings (new in 2008).
