Introduced in 1974, the Coronado 45 by Columbia Yachts was the flagship of the line.  While the 45 Center Cockpit is the boat most sailors are familiar with, the aft-cockpit 45 was based on the very successful Columbia 43 and reflects the 43's excellent sailing abilities for coastal or offshore sailing.

Willow has been under the care of the same owners for over 30 years which is a real plus in the used boat market.  A variety of upgrades and improvements have been made over the years, including:

  • New LEE sails - 120% genoa and Mainsail (2 reef points, partial battens)
  • New 4-burner propane stove/oven
  • New 110V refrigerator
  • Dickinson bulkhead diesel heater in main cabin added
  • New upholstery with new foam cushions - main salon and foreward cabin
  • Non-skid surfaces topsides freshly painted
  • New UV cover on the genoa and new boom cover over the main
  • Yamaha 4 hp 4 stroke outboard on a 10-1/2 foot Avon inflatable dinghy
  • 3 propane bottles in properly vented cockpit locker
  • New running rigging

Other important attributes of the boat include:

  • 2,500 hours on Perkins 4-107 diesel
  • 3-bladed fixed prop, with a 2-blade prop as spare
  • Cast iron keel with a skeg-mounted rudder
  • Manual windlass (50 feet of chain, plus 200' rode) - Bruce main anchor, Danforth as spare/secondary
  • New wind instrument ready to install
  • 2 porta potties - no holding tanks
  • H/C pressure water in galley and heads
  • Iverson dodger w/window covers
  • 6-volt batteries (4 are quite new, 2 older) - 3 banks of 2 batteries each
  • Updated engine alternator/regulator
  • Cockpit table

This is a very roomy boat, with ample headroom and a very large cockpit.  She's built tough as nails, but with a hull form and sail plan that provides excellent on-water performance.  There are very few vessels in the under $50k price range that will compare.

A short-term sublet after purchase is also a possibility. Please contact us by email or at the numbers below to schedule an appointment to view.




We're open Monday thru Saturday, 10 AM to 4:30 PM.  As we are operating on an appointment-only basis during these times, please call at least one day in advance to schedule.  Call Roger (206-261-3790) or Marty (206-769-6142).
