"Open Gates" is meticulously maintaned and carefully upgraded for serious world cruising. Her owners were preparing for another long sailing adventure, but their plans have changed, leaving a truly turn-key cruising boat.
She is a 3 cabin, 2 head layout, with Davit arch, 520W solar panels, watermaker, new North Sails cruise laminate sails in 2017, liferaft, SSB Radio, 2018 TUG aluminum hull inflatable dinghy with 9.9hp outboard motor, and every bit of equipment - and spares - needed for extended cruising.
It is no exaggeration to say you could load you provisions aboard and set off for the Caribbean tomorrow.
The Sun Odyssey 45.2 is built to a much higher standard than most newer boats. She does not have a "pan" constrution, but instead stringers and frames are fiberglassed directly to the inside of her hull. Her woodwork needs to be seen to be appreciated. It has been lovingly cared for by the current, and only second, owners. Their pride of ownership shows through.
