Ferretti Yachts – 450

Florida, United States

“Metanoia” is an outstanding example of the rare and beautiful Ferretti 450 Flybridge. Matching form and function, this yacht incorporates three staterooms, a full beam master, two heads with stall showers and a galley aft that flows nicely between the bright and airy salon and the aft deck. Matching the interior, the exterior has a large flybridge with seating, sunpad and wetbar with grill and refrigerator, a bow sunpad and surprisingly ample side decks for ease of passage. A hydraulic swim platform rounds out the exterior and at the heart of the beast are the super reliable and fully serviced Cummins diesel inboards. For ease of maneuverability there is a bow thruster and Cummins joystick control (no pods) and for comfort underway and at anchor a SeaKeeper gyro stabilizer.

“Metanoia” should be a must see for anyone entertaining a flybridge yacht in the 45′-50′ range and honestly she would be absolutely hard to beat in layout, quality, performance and looks.

Engine and Mechanical
When the current owners purchased "Metanoia" in 2021, they had a comprehensive boat and mechanical survey done and took the list of recommendations to Cable Marine where an extensive effort was made to make this boat as up to date mechanically as possible ensuring as much reliability and care free enjoyment as possible. It worked as the boat has performed terrifically for the owners and encouraged them to move to an even larger boat after this one brought them so much enjoyment! Full receipts are available and at a cost of over 100k, this boat has seen the best of care, is up to date and ready to go!

Additional Comments
"Metanoia" just relocated (Jan 2024) from the Chesapeake Bay down to Stuart, FL to encourage a sale.  The owner and a highly regarded captain did the trip in four days and the boat performed flawlessly.  This boat has the versatility to cruise at 25 knot or at hull speed, benefits from the reliability of inboards vs. pod drives, has a draft that makes her perfect for the islands, an air draft that makes he perfect for the Great Loop and a layout that is unheard of in a 45 foot boat.  Perferct owner operator cruising boat that can truly do it all and with the comfort of a SeaKeeper stabilizer.  Owners' new boat has arrived and they are motivated to sell.
