For the price an excellent long distance cruiser. Draws a little more than I would like, limits some anchorages found in atolls, but a nice boat. I would add a watermaker and AIS transponder. If the funds were there also install solar panel and a wind generator

The LeComte Fastnet 45 was certainly built for blue-water adventures.  Lightheart has proven to be a blue-water cruiser as demonstrated by her sailing history to Mexico and Australia/New Zealand. She is very well equipped to resume enjoyable safe journeys with her new owners. She offers as well laid-out floor plan with a large aft cabin found in most Center Cockpit boats (this not being a center cockpit boat)  I really like the privacy afforded by the forward v-berth area and the aft cabin for long sailing legs in open sea. When you are looking for comfort, safety and affordability this is a well-regarded and proven boat.
