S/V Madam Queen is a North Carolina based 2000 Leopard 45 for sale by owner

S/V Madam Queen is a 2000 Leopard 45 which I'm ready to sell and she's ready to sail. She is a 4 cabin, 4 head model which I live aboard, and will be perfecting all the items, and there really aren't many, from the survey done in May 2016 (available by request). I do a little maintenance/work on her every day. I will be sailing in NC, VA, and SC predominately with occasional trips to the Bahamas. Bottom line is S/V Madam Queen is in great condition and getting better every day.

This boat is loaded, with full air conditioning and a large genset included. She is being well maintained and is ready to go. As an example, since May 2016, she has gotten a new prop, 6 new deck hatches, new cutlass bearings, refreshed/perfected bottom paint, 3000 hour Generator service, new engine mounts and shafts/engines aligned, new LED anchor light/nav light/steaming light/deck light, all new joker valves, new shower sump pump, new stereo speakers, new port-light, new boot stripe, 2 new hammocks, fasteners replaced in port rudder, and more. All this since May.

The Salon’s interior upholstery was redone in sand color with higher backs and a removable insert center cushion so the table can be dropped and made into a big lounge area for movie night's. It's also excellent for sleeping on overnight passages.

In 2010 a former owner added a new 7.3kw Northern Lights genset and 3 marine A/C units- reverse cycle so they can heat and dehumidify too! Sept 2016 only 2780 hours and the 3000 service has already been done. Being able to periodically dehumidify the boat is a big deal: no mildew issues, no smells, and the interior is in excellent shape. She was last hauled in August 2016 and has a new bottom job. She is waxed every 6 months.

I watched boats for a while before I made my purchase decision. Before deciding I developed a prioritized list of needs/wants for a safe and strong vessel: shaft drive (stronger and lower maintenance), skeg hung rudders, sacrificial keels, radar, water-maker, low engine hours, low gen hours, strong autopilot, 4 corner visibility, SSB radio, good fuel and water capacity, dry sailing helm, easy to reach mechanical spaces, beam of less than 25ft (able to haul at MANY more yards), newer standing rigging, Yanmar engines, etc.

I love working on her, perfecting her. I've been caught offshore in 12ft seas and know she's tough and strong. She motors at 8 knots and sips 0.8 gal/hr/engine. She sails at 12-14knts and points much better than I expected. Gen burns 0.2 gal/hr. Solar is EXCELLENT and sustains all systems (refer and water-maker included) perfectly. Run the gen for a/c and hot water.
