Another Perfect Sunset

Lillie Mae is an incredibly well equipped, recently refit blue water cruising yacht ready for new adventures!

With over 1,000 hours and $75K in refit and renovation work completed in 2009-2010, Lillie Mae is a fully updated ready to go cruising yacht capable of providing fast, safe and comfortable offshore cruising.

During 2010 – 2013 this Stevens 47 traveled from Florida to Venezuela, back up the windward islands and across the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. After extensive cruising in the Med, she re-crossed the Atlantic and is now berthed in Brunswick, Georgia.

The Sparkman & Stephens designed Stevens 47 yachts, constructed by Queen Long Marine in Taiwan, are famous for their solid construction and fantastic sailing qualities. Featuring a large center cockpit with full enclosure, huge aft master cabin, two guest cabins, two heads, navigation station, main salon, updated galley, new engine, a huge battery bank and over 500 watts of solar panels – Lillie Mae represents a unique opportunity to purchase a proven yacht outfitted for world cruising.

Comfortable and spacious at anchor, confidence inspiring under sail, easily handled by a crew of two, outfitted with all of the essential equipment and spares needed for long distance cruising, the Lillie Mae needs only a new owner to once again make cruising dreams come true!

Lillie Mae is seriously for sale! The current owner has moved onto new adventures and the yacht is not being used. More than anything else. Lillie Mae needs fresh loving hands to hoist the sails and point her toward new horizons!

Accommodations -

Three private staterooms with two heads provide comfortable accommodations for a crew of up to 8. Starting forward is a generous guest cabin with a double v-berth, hanging locker, storage drawers, additional lockers and a fan. Huge storage space is available under the berth. A large opening hatch provides ventilation and a small seating area aids dressing. Access to the forward chain locker and windlass is through double doors at the front of the bunk.

Just aft of the forward cabin to port is the second guest stateroom with over/under bunks, storage lockers and a large hanging locker. This cabin has an opening port and hatch plus fans for each bunk. To starboard across from this second cabin is the forward head featuring marble countertops with custom inlays (2010), Lavac marine toilet (the best marine toilets made – never clogs!), Lectra-San Type I MSD, stainless steel sink, mirrored cabinet, and teak floor grate. This head has been fitted with a stainless steel sliding adjustable massage shower head and custom shower curtain and track providing a very large shower area, double the space of a built in shower stall without the inconvenience of a wet head.

Inviting and Roomy Main Salon - Fold Out Table

The Salon is furnished with an L shaped settee and teak table to port. This table folds out to seat up to 8 for entertaining and provides a large storage cubbie. To starboard is a straight settee that pulls out to provide an excellent sea berth or additional guest accommodations. This settee, along with all bunks aboard the vessel, is fitted with a lee cloth. To port behind the settee are large storage lockers and above is custom cabinetry including gorgeous doors providing additional storage and wine bottle rack. There are storage lockers behind the starboard settee and open storage book shelves and space above. A 32” flat panel display is mounted on a sturdy articulating arm that allows it to be adjusted for viewing in the salon for movies and television. There is also a surround sound stereo system with subwoofer to complement the flat panel television. At sea, the flat panel is folded flat at the navigation station where it can be used in conjunction with the laptop computer for navigation.

Great Navigation Station + Fully Articulating Flat Panel Display!

The forward facing navigation station and seat is located further aft to starboard, easily accessible from the cockpit. “Lillie Mae” is fitted with a full suite of electronics and radios. The galley is situated to port along the full length of the walk through to the aft cabin. The owners cabin is furnished with a large double bed to port and a single to starboard, both excellent sea berths. There are two large hanging lockers, mirrored cabinet, drawers and lockers under both bunks and a large central cabinet that provides ample storage. The owners cabin also features a custom central cabinet with storage and entertainment center including a 21” flat panel display and speakers. This entertainment center allows occupants of both rear bunks to enjoy movies in style. En-suite with the owners cabin and also accessible via walk through by the navigation station is the rear head. This head also has a Lavac marine toilet, mirrored cabinet, multiple storage lockers, teak doors, marble countertops and a stainless steel sink. As in the forward head, all plumbing fixtures are new (2009).

Fantastic Galley - Custom Marble Countertops!

The interior of “Lillie Mae” is finished with warm varnished teak joinery, a real teak and holly planked sole, teal green ultra suede upholstery throughout (new 1999 – excellent shape) and white vinyl headliner. The amount and quality of the teak woodwork throughout the boat is something that is simply cost prohibitive to duplicate in boats being manufactured today, short of a multi-million dollar yacht. Head compartments feature white formica, varnished teak trim and cabinet doors and marble countertops. The galley also features beautiful custom marble countertops  (2009). There are 12 Atkins and Hoyle aluminum opening ports (new seals 2009) and numerous hatches providing excellent ventilation and lighting. Four dorade vents provide additional ventilation along with fans throughout the vessel. In port, Lillie Mae is cooled via dual Flagship Marine self contained built in air-conditioning units, a 12K btu unit in the rear and an 18K btu in front, both with electronic thermostats and built in electric heating elements,  both new in 2009.

Currently offered at a NEW lower price of $179,000
