This is a rare opportunity to own a classic Midnight Lace 52 in excellent condition. The yacht's second (current) owner has kept her continuously upgraded and meticulously maintained since his acquisition in 1998. She was repowered in 2003 with Cat 3126 Bs and new ZF gears. She has had the Cat after cooler upgrade in 2013. She has also had a Northern Lights 9Kw genset installed in 2006. At 26 knots the fuel consumption is 40 GPH., at 22 Knots the consumption is 25 GPH., at 7 Knots the consumption is 8 GPH. Generator burn is a little over 1 GPH.  She has spent all but about 18 months of her life under cover and it shows. She is loaded with up to date decor and equipment and is "turn key" ready to go. Engines just serviced by local Cat dealer 10/'16. She is most likely the nicest one available. Over $750,000 invested.  


Beginning first forward in front of the bow cockpit is the anchor rode locker accessed by a hinged door.

Next aft is the bow cockpit. This area can be used as a unique seating area and for line and anchor handling. There is a hatch down into the master stateroom so the area can be reached by walking up the quarter decks or through from the inside. At anchor with the hatch open the breeze is captured and blows through the vessel making it very cool and great for sleeping without the air conditioning on.

Next aft is the master stateroom with a double berth diagonal to port, storage forward and to stbd., and a vanity with hinge out stool to stbd.. There is a flat screen TV to stbd. forward with its own dedicated satellite receiver. 

There is a companionway to aft on the stbd. side.

The master head is to port aft of the master stateroom and across from the guest stateroom. The master head has a tub/shower aft in the compartment and marble counter top.

The guest stateroom has upper/lower bunks outboard with storage forward. There are felt lined drawers for storage throughout.

There are ample opening deck hatches with aluminum framed smoked lexan lights to let in light and air.

Aft of the guest stateroom is the guest head with a diverter type shower with curtain, a Teak grating for drainage, and a marble counter top.

To port aft across from the guest head is the galley open up to the salon. The galley has a high gloss finished Teak deck.

The staterooms, companionway, and salon have wall to wall carpeting.

Galley and salon counter tops are custom black granite.

In the salon to port forward is a bar counter open down to the galley. The bar counter is finished in high gloss violin maker's burl veneer.

The salon has a large flat screen TV to stbd. forward which can be used to view satellite TV from its own dedicated receiver, broadcast TV, cable TV, and the on board computer for internet etc..

The salon also has a convertible sofa aft that forms another double berth.

Under the salon sole is storage for spare propellers (included), tankage, and other systems.

Next aft is the aft deck with the engines under hinged hatches. The engine compartments are roomy because the technical equipment has been distributed between under the salon, the engine compartments, and the aft generator compartment.

Next aft under the curved aft deck settee is the generator compartment accessible through hatches in the settee top. The placement of the generator here makes it very quiet being segregated so far from the accommodation spaces.

There is a short ladder up to the flybridge control station which is fully enclosed and covered from the sun.

The interior is in excellent condition.
