These have to be the biggest 45′ boats ever built. When you’re on one, you can’t believe that they are only 45′.

These are very popular boats and sell extremely well. I’ve had several clients do “The Loop” with their 459’s before shipping them home to New Zealand.  The last two I sold, one went to Perth Australia and one went to Tasmania on her bottom from Newcastle!. Look at THAT on a chart!   These boats are very popular due to the bang for the buck, and the enormous interior volume, features and quite reasonable prices. Pretty? NO. Functional? YES.  Are you buying a boat for others to enjoy looking at, or you buying a boat for you to enjoy life on, while looking at them?

2005 459 Andiamo $199k Marco Island Florida. Under 1000 hours, bow and stern thrusters.

Without a doubt the most interior volume of any 45′ yacht ever built. These 459’s are pretty trick boats in all the usable space and features they have in such a small footprint. They have a quite large cockpit, which allows one to fish, dive, or just lounge. It has direct access into the owners stateroom. A few steps above the cockpit there’s a covered deck with a wetbar, and a few steps above that, there’s a large flybridge which more seating and a refrigerator. These vessels have two good sized private (opposite ends of the boat from each other) staterooms, two nice heads w/separate shower stalls. Nice sized salon, and a large galley. What more could you ask for under $200k?

Andiamo” is a well maintained 2005 Meridian Cockpit Motor Yacht with under 1000 hours on Twin 370 HP Cummins Diesels. Her mechanical services are up to date, including fluids changed and cooling system service.  This model was well received when introduced and continues to have a great following.

The owners bought the boat to use as a live aboard to start enjoying the Florida lifestyle as they transitioned from the northern climes.  They have since purchased a home and don’t need such a large yacht.  The owners have taken care of many maintenance and repair items since owning the “Andiamo”, resulting in a better boat for the next owner.  If you have been looking for a spacious boat that is in cruise ready condition then “Andiamo” should be at the top of your list!

But WAIT- there’s more! These aren’t just dockside condo yachts, they do ‘get up and go’. I’ve sold two to “Down Under” -one went to Perth Australia and the other went to Tasmania ON HER BOTTOM from Newcastle Australia. That’s quite a trip down the Australian Coast and then across the Tasmanian Strait, one of the roughest bodies of water on the planet!


It’s just rare to have one available in Florida.  The 459 I sent to Perth had to be sourced from up the Hudson River.
