SY De Liefde for sale!

After visiting the most wonderfull places around Europe and the Atlantic Ocean in the last six years we decided to sell SY De Liefde.

SY De Liefde is a very well maintained Island Packet 485 (recent changed type name by the Island Packet yard is Island Packet 525) from 2004 and is the 18th Island Packet 485 from the wellknown yard.

She had a major refit in 2012 and since that year we kept het up to date. People ask us if De Liefde is a new ship very often, because she still looks as new.

SY De Liefde is ready to go anywhere you want, including colder parts of the globe.

The interior of the 485 sets her apart from from others in her class. It begins with the enormous raised salon, which allows for panoramic views thru large fixed windows. Seating is ample, with full length settees port and starboard, providing room for 6 to relax comfortably. Covered in beige colored Ultra Leather, seating is very durable and extremely comfortable. A spare small dining table to port has room for two guests. The main table slides on a rail to set it in dining "mode" or chilling  "mode".The main windows have removable double glass. Two extra Captain chairs are completing the luxurious cabin.
The navigation center faces forward and has a high back swiveling arm chair. There is a large chart table and repeaters providing access to all information you have in the cockpit. The electrical panel is also installed within arms reach, making for an efficient command center.
Galley is to starboard and laid out in a walk thru design. This provides several benefits including generous counter space, more room for refrigerated storage, better storage, and easy access into the engine compartment. Counters are finished in Corian, including top loading fridge/freezer.
Forward is the stateroom with island berth and en suite head with washingmachine/dryer combination (6 kg) . Privacy doors close off cabin from passageway and allow private access to head when desired.

Aft of the galley is the owners stateroom. The queen size island berth is set up athwartship. There is a dressing seat and cedar hanging locker along with plenty of drawers and storage compartments. Additionally, access is provided to the 'cave', a lazarette that rivals those of boats twice her size.
