General Details

This well maintained and updated 1990 Californian 45 is now on the market at a reasonable asking price. The owner’s change in plans makes this turn-key, quality yacht available for her next owner's adventures. A detailed list of general work and upgrades over the last three years is included with this listing and makes SIROCCO ready to go cruising. Featuring the upgraded 32085TA Caterpillars, satellite TV, new flat screen TV's, RIB tender with Davit system, new inverter and new generator installed in 2012, and much more.

SIROCCO was purchased by her current owners in June 2010 with plans to do the Great Loop. The boat had been located at Regatta Point Marine in Deltaville, VA (Chesapeake Bay) for the 3 years prior to that. From 2000 to 2007 she was located in Cincinnati, OH. After purchased by the current owners, the boat was moved to the Neuse River in NC for retro-fit. She started her move north and departed via the Intracoastal Waterway in May of 2011. She wintered 2011 in heated storage at Winter Harbor, Brewerton, NY. 

The owner is extremely motivated and will entertain all reasonable offers.
