This Sun Kiss 45 is a great value in a 45 foot large sailboat. This model is a 3 cabin, 2 head version with spacious saloon/galley area. Two rows of 16 port lights produce the brightest living area of any boat her size. A fin keel and mast head rig produce plenty of sail area. This boat was in the middle of a refit on several projects. Nothing structural or mechanical. All interior work and is being sold as is. She is a great boat at a great price for the buyer who wants to finish her!

The Sun Kiss 45 Tranguilo with her 3 staterooms and 2 heads is ideal for a family of 4 or 3 couples looking for a roomy cruiser with better performance than the average boat normally offers. She can accommodate up to 8 if salon dinette is converted to a bed

Coming down the companionway is the navigation station to starboard and a large hanging locker to port. There are two cabins aft, both equipped with wash basin and lockers. Between the cabins is a head that is accessible from either side.

To port is a large dining table with seating for 8. The table converts to a bed. 

The galley of the Sun Kiss 45 is to starboard and features a propane stove with 2 burners and oven; forward is a double SS sink with hot and cold pressure and foot sea water intake. Alongside is the top loading ice box with Adler Barbour refrigeration as well as a separate ice box. Above the sink and ice box is ample storage for plates, glasses and kitchen paraphernalia…

The master cabin has a double bunk to port with storage drawers underneath. The starboard side of the mast cabin has a large locker as well as dressing bench with a small desk. Forward of the master cabin is the head with shower and sink. In the bow is a large sail locker with shelves.

refit not completed

The previous owner had started an interior refit that remains incomplete. There are cosmetic issues that need to be finished to make this a showpiece boat. It is priced very well for the buyer who wants to finish the cosmetics.
