This beautiful four year old FP Helia 44 is a one owner boat, with a spacious four cabin layout. The owners are living aboard and have thoroughly upgraded and maintained the vessel, with the intention of circumnavigating . Investments include: 3di North sails ($26K / April 2016), a new and complete B&G Electronics suite, including radar ($55K / October 2016), and custom outdoor cushions ($12K / Oct. 2015). The owners have decided to move to a larger vessel, making this lovely boat available for the next lucky owner.
1) The owners prefer to transfer title of the boat in late Spring 2018. However, they will discuss different timing with interested buyers. Further: the owners are offering to spend the time necessary to thoroughly orient the new owner to the boat's systems, sailing characteristics, and maintenance procedures.
2) The boat has had the good fortune of not being exposed to any tropical storms.
