A truly excellent example of the Neptunus 145 Dutch built heavy semi displacement cruiser. Stunning and in almost as new condition. This is a very capable cruiser, happy at all speeds. With both engines she has a top speed of around 22 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 15 knots. Running on a single engine at around 8 to 10 knots an excellent fuel economy is achieved. There is spacious accommodation with 6ft 4in headroom all round. With three cabins, two toilets, shower, saloon/galley, inside helm, large flybridge with upper helm and a comfortable sheltered aft cockpit. In addition there is a laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer and large freezer. In addition to cruising extensively on the west coast of Scotland in recent years, she has cruised Holland, the English Channel and around the UK.

The Neptunus shipyard is located in St. Catharines, Ontario: only 45 minutes from the Buffalo, NY airport. The 72,000-square-foot facility on 7 acres (situated near the Welland Canal and Lake Ontario) is staffed with skilled trades people - many of whom have more than 20 years experience in the yacht building industry. Their skill and commitment are the foundation of each and every vessel that we deliver.Over the years, they have earned a reputation based upon a passion for building a quality vessel for each owner. Neptunus customers are involved in the yacht building process from beginning to end, and our goal is to ensure that each customer feels their new Neptunus motoryacht is truly the best yacht they have ever owned. In fact, many of their customers are now on their second or third Neptunus yacht.At Neptunus, their passion for excellence and commitment to continuous improvement in processes and technologies underscores their resolve to exceed the expectations of each and every customer.
Owner's Comments of the Neptunus 145 Flybridge
I think I have said enough, she is in supreme condition, built to go anywhere, and has had little use for her age. Three owners from new, she was specially built for a Dutch business man, then bought by a canny Scotsman, who sailed her back to the west of Scotland, some 14 years ago, he kept her for 8 years, and we have had her for 5/6 years, we don't really mind if she dos not sell, we love her to bits, we just thought we would move up to a larger two cabin boat so that we can semi retire and live on board full time, so we need a little more space.
