Silver Lining is a 2014 Beneteau Sense 55 listed exclusively for sale with YOTI on Pittwater.
Silver Lining presents in impressive condition and has been set up for both swift easy sailing and blue water cruising. The inventory is comprehensive and importantly has been significantly updated recently.
The Sense 55 blends the very best features of a Deck Saloon and a modern layout. This is an ultra stylish yacht which is very easy to simply be on board and boasts an extensive level of practical features.
The Leisure Furl in-boom furling main system and the self-tacking headsail make for seriously easy sailing. The bow thruster and the Yanmar engine with 'Dock and Go' capability make for simple manoeuvring under power. All four winches are electric. This is a yacht designed to be sailed shorthanded while the hull speed, long waterline, twin rudders and a flexible sail plan (there's also genoa tracks) make for exhilarating sailing - there's plenty here to keep a podium hungry crew interested if race weeks are on the agenda. There is a furling Code 0 and asymmetric spinnaker which are stored in the forward sail locker.
Silver Lining is a fully air-conditioned three cabin / three head layout with impressive accommodation spaces even in the guest cabins. The owner's cabin forward includes private head and shower spaces which are completely separated port and starboard. There are retractable TV's in both the saloon and owners cabin. The galley is the best we've seen on a production yacht of this size - large, practical, beautiful and safe.
The cockpit is accessed by simply stepping on board from the dock. The twin cockpit tables are an intelligent and functional feature (with the starboard table able to electrically lower to form a day bed). Visibility is excellent while the cockpit is also very well protected by a full dodger (supported by the mainsheet arch), bimini and infill. There is a huge storage 'cabin' under the port side of the cockpit - the best thing about this space is it's designed to double for just that; an additional cabin if needed (the ultimate teenage retreat!). Brand new updates in just 2020 include a water maker, stainless steel davits, bimini, solar panels, house batteries, and genoa furler.
Both fuel and water tanks were factory upgraded on original order (830L fuel, 970L water) which allow for a massive cruising range. There is a Zodiac with 15Hp outboard, an Onan generator, life raft and lots of extras that truly make for a sail away package (think two fold-up bikes, tools, a Karcher pressure washer, and quality cutlery and crockery).
Silver Lining presents a very tempting offer for a larger cruising yacht which is incredibly well specified for ocean adventures, race week excitement, or simply easy and very comfortable family sailing.
