There are other Ted Hood designed Bristol 45.5 aft cockpit’s out there, but EGRET is truly a distinguished ,thoughtfully designed, and very special semi-custom version of this classic, traditional cruising yacht. This boat has been continually maintained and upgraded to keep her in the best condition possible. EGRET has been professionally maintained by New England’s premier boat yards (Hinckley, Concordia, Dodson) and at the Brewer Oxford Boat Yard in Oxford, Maryland.
EGRET was “gently cruised” by her first owner in southern New England until 2010 and subsequently extensively cruised between the southeast coast of Newfoundland and the southern Bahamas. She has proven to be not only a commodious boat while living aboard and relaxing or entertaining at anchor, but an extremely comfortable offshore passage-making vessel. Navigation, watch-keeping, and sail-handling in heavy weather can all be easily accomplished without leaving the protection of the dodger.
Please review the details described in the full specifications of this listing, but know that EGRET represents a level of quality and classic design that is difficult to find, is well found, and offers the opportunity for extended cruising to unlimited destinations.

As noted, EGRET is a semi-custom 45.5. From the well-protected, efficiently designed cockpit, one enters below from the single companionway. To starboard is a large, aft facing Nav station with an array of navigational instruments and on-board controls, gauges & electrical panel. To port of the companionway is the aft stateroom highlighted by a double bunk, numerous storage lockers, drawers, and hanging locker, as well as access to an en suite head, which includes a full-sized stall shower.
Forward of the Nav station is the large, efficient U-shaped galley. A large, separate freezer box is located on the port side, just aft of the settee. There is also extensive storage throughout the galley.

The main salon is spacious & traditional in design. An onboard stereo system utilizes high-end speakers and is powered by an amplifier. To port is an L shaped
settee with curved section adjacent to the forward bulkhead. Another settee is opposite to starboard. Both settees can be extended inboard to provide wider berths. In between the settees is a large, high-gloss varnished drop leaf dining table, which often has accommodated 8-10 diners. Outboard of both settees are shelves and storage lockers. There are also very large storage lockers beneath both settees as well as foul-weather gear locker and a bureau with 4 drawers forward of the starboard settee. The entire interior is satin varnish- finished teak. The cabin sole is gloss varnished teak and
holly. Numerous hatches and opening ports provide abundant light and ventilation. Six Guest cabin fans, 4 s/s Nicro solar vents, and 4 large dorade vents add to airflow throughout the boat. Tasteful Frigast bulkhead lights are located throughout the boat as well.
The forward stateroom has a large double V-berth with filler and numerous overhead storage lockers and drawers, as well as port and starboard hanging lockers. It adjoins its own head with shower and a private entrance. A second entrance door provides access from the main salon.
The traditional, well-maintained, quality-built, richly finished interior aboard EGRET creates an environment of comfort and taste. There is the unmistakable feeling that you are on a proper yacht.
