LADYBUG represents an exceptional value for someone who seeks a modern, sleek cruising sailboat which is comfortable, safe, simple to operate and maintained to the nines. This is a one owner, privately owned boat, bought as a left-over in 2015. She has had light use and extraordinary care - indoor heated storage, meticulous maintenance, and numerous upgrades. Owners are in year 5 of a 5 year plan, so it is time to sell.
At 46 feet overall , she is “right sized” in today’s market. Offering three private sleeping cabins, plus a generous salon and galley, two heads, a Navigation station, and a huge, smartly designed cockpit, she is a joy to be aboard. Her systems are all operating at perfection, and her performance under both sail and power are well respected.
We encourage you to explore the details and images in this listing, and then to call us for a personal inspection. LADYBUG will not disappoint you.
Come see her in Stonington, CT - you will not be disappointed.

The master stateroom, this area is truly majestic, with exceptional light, ventilation, sleeping comfort and storage, along with a private owner’s head.
The center line queen berth with side access is large and convenient. There are numerous overhead clothes lockers, two hanging lockers, large drawers under the berth and even a dressing table (which can double as a writing table or work station) to absorb everything you could ever imagine bringing aboard.
There are three overhead hatches (with screens and shades), two port lights in the hull sides, and excellent LED lighting. The television still has the labels and protective films on it!
This cabin is also a separate air conditioning/heat zone.
The master head is large and features a separate shower area with a smoked glass partition. The head is electric, and there is excellent storage in the vanity and in lockers. An opening hatch provides ventilation.
I love this salon. It is open and bright, and comfortable. There is a large U-shaped settee to port with a fixed/folding dining table. It is both heated and cooled by a reverse cycle air conditioning.
To Starboard are two seats with a side table between them. The aft seat acts as the seat for the forward facing navigation station, which utilizes the side table and has storage underneath. The main VHF unit is located here (with a remote at the helm).
There is storage above, behind and below the berths.
Four port lights in the hull, combined with large port lights in the cabin sides, and four overhead hatches (also with screen and black-out shades) are a major bonus.
The L-shaped galley is found aft to starboard, and features superb storage, a double stainless steel sink, a large top and front loading fridge with a separate fridge/freezer compartment, Haier microwave, and a three burner stove with oven and broiler.
The aft head is to port, with entrance from the salon. This puts the galley and the head adjacent to the cockpit – a smart and logical design. The aft head has a separate shower stall, an electric head, generous storage and an opening port as well as a fixed port light.
Twin aft cabins both port and starboard provide exceptional guest quarters.
These cabins mirror each other, with a large double berth, hanging locker, shelf storage, and two opening ports and an opening hatch. There is also a fixed hull port light and a fixed cabin side port light in each cabin
COCKPIT and DECKS:
The cockpit sole and seats are glued (no screws) teak in perfect condition. The hydraulic transom folds down to become a swim platform, also with teak decking. This feature opens up the back of the cockpit, and allows ease in boarding into or out of a dinghy, and is a joy when swimming.
The main and jib sheets are led aft to electric self tailing winches at each helm station, making this an easy boat to sail short or single handed.
Halyards, reefing and other sail control lines are led aft to either side of the cockpit, with Harken self tailing winches; the port cabin top winch is electric for the halyards.
The Table has two varnished teak drop leaves.
There are surprisingly large storage areas under both cockpit seats, and a propane locker for two bottles aft to port.
Decks are wide and unobstructed.
The anchoring system features a dedicated bow roller and electric windlass. Aft of the anchor locker is a large storage lazarette accessed through a hatch and stainless steel ladder.
