2001 Saga 43 for sale in Annapolis, MD

1 of 1
This particular Saga 43, “Free Spirit”, has had two owners since she was built and is a truly unique yacht. She presents like a much newer boat, has many recent upgrades, is in excellent condition and is absolutely worth your time to look at.   Her first owners were experienced boaters, knew exactly what they wanted and directed Saga to build her that way, so she is unique among her sister ships. Here are a few of the more obvious custom features: They didn’t want the reflective glare of an all-white deck, so they had her built using an almond color gelcoat on the hull and the deck, which really looks sharp and solves the problem. They had two cleats installed instead of one in all six locations around the deck, so you never had to loosen one line to get at another beneath it- sometimes a dangerous task in a blow. There is a cockpit locker designed to be dedicated for a life raft on the starboard side. This is usually located at the aft end, which makes it a challenge to crawl under for access to the space beneath the helm. “Free Spirit” was built with the life raft locker forward, eliminating that issue. A custom drop-down Corian and cherry surface in the galley over one of the sinks provides a space for a dish drainer, expresso machine or just some additional counter space. The tip-out trash bin container is substantially larger than is commonly found on these boats. The current owners spared no expense and have taken a good boat and made her even better. In that process she is a stronger, better boat as a result. They undertook a major refit in 2015, which included: Keel dropped and custom backing plates installed to replace the keel bolt washers New water tanks New forward fuel tank New standing rigging New main bulkhead laminated in (now double thickness and much stiffer) New mast step, stringers and ribs in the mast step and main bulkhead area New Electroscan system in the aft head The owner’s efforts were also rewarded with something they weren’t expecting- quiet! By beefing up the main bulkhead and installing new stringers and ribs, they discovered the squeaks and groans they were used to hearing underway had disappeared! The owners have made many other improvements to her during their stewardship (as you will see by looking under the “Full Specs” tab. This truly is a boat that presents wonderfully and is ready to go cruising. Provision, drop the lines and head out. “Free Spirit” is certainly worthy of your personal inspection and should be on the short list of anyone with plans to take off and go cruising. She’s pulling at her dock lines and ready to go- call and make an appointment to see her today!
