The "Bermuda West 2" (Bermuda West Squared)

45' Chris Craft Commander 451 1980, Twin Detroit 8V71N engines, with 11' Boston Whaler Sport 1984 Dinghy

The "Bermuda West2" Is one of the nicest classic yachts available in the market.As soon as you walk up to the yacht,you will see the care that has been taken to keep her in excellent condition both cosmetically and mechanically.

We are the fourth owners over her 38 year history. BW2 was acquired to do the Bahamas, Caribbean and the Great Loop. She contains many redundant systems to keep you going in remote areas, including water filters and fuel polishers. Easy to operate in tight quarters, and roomy enough that 2 couples can live aboard and not get in each other’s way, she is a true beauty that you’ll be proud to own for long range or day cruising and entertaining.

"Bermuda West2" is located in Orange Beach, Alabama - ideally positioned for a start of the Loop or a cruise Down Island. Easy access to the Mississippi, ICW and the Tenn-Tom Waterway also make coming north a breeze.

Interest and questions - please contact Tim @ or on 770-861-1676. I can also provide a complete photo set.

Marquipt makes the boarding ladder. The plate at the top of the ladder was custom made and welded to allow the ladder to board from either direction. It can also be attached directly to the vessel.

They may also have options for the top plate.

Tim where did you source that boarding ladder? That is awesome. I have a 74 45' and could use one of those.
