1972 Columbia 45 Motorsailer in LA Harbor

Stock #239274

This Bill Tripp Jr. design is a center-cockpit motorsailer. However, she is also like a modern deck salon before her time. The boats were built from 1971 to 1976 and a total of 180 were built. This boat is hull 12.

The hull is solid hand-laid fiberglass. Hull and Rigging are consistently reported to be "heavy and "stout" by owners.

The topsides give you 5 feet of freeboard which gives you more room down below and fewer swamping waves in heavy weather.

She is a masthead sloop and keel stepped. She has a straight driveshaft set slightly off-center to starboard.

Access to the engine, batteries, diesel, freshwater and holding tanks can be accessed from the sole of the raised saloon.

In addition to the main and jib, there is also an extra jib in good condition, a light wind sail in a sock in new condition, and an extra hank-on storm sail in good condition.

What a great cruising boat with 25,000 lbs of displacement she rides the swells very comfortably.

She has an electric winch forward of the cockpit on the aft top of the cabin house for the main halyard. The self furling jib is handled nicely with a self-tailing conversion kit on 2 Barlow winches on the aft coaming of the cockpit.

She would make a nice liveaboard or cruiser with plenty of space for you and the crew.

For those warmer climates, there is a new frigidaire air conditioner (12,000 BTU) to keep you cool on a hot day.

This model is known for its cross-ocean journeys and adventures.

For those long voyages the auto-pilot will come in handy and 2 AIS VHFs make your presence known to all those around you.

2 staterooms and 2 heads with showers help you end or start the day feeling refreshed and ready for what is to come next.

According to the owner, all systems work as they should. The current owner has spent his time updating and bringing current the engine, generator, systems, and electronics.

His next tasks are cosmetics even though the current condition is good for the age. No big issues.

If you are interested in cruising or just living aboard this is a great yacht don't miss your opportunity to own hull number 12 of 180 in the limited production Colombia 45.

Information On Condition

The hull and decks need good detailing and buffing. Where fittings and stanchions meet the deck there are very few stress cracks. Unusual for a boat this age.

Wood in the cockpit on the seats and around the wheel needs to be refinished but otherwise in fair condition.

The interior looks good for the age and could use freshening up but otherwise very functional.

The engine was serviced in July 2021 as well as the 3 KW generator.
