45' Bristol 45.5 Center Cockpit 1982 ITHAKA


Designed by Ted Hood and built to the highest standards by Bristol Yachts, ITHAKA features a shoal draft, heavier displacement hull form with efficient centerboard that combine to provide excellent upwind performance, comfortable motion in a seaway and tremendous interior volume for a yacht of this size. Her draft of less than five feet allows access to less-crowded cruising grounds normally limited to much smaller yachts.

ITHAKA also features a handsome ketch rig, which provides for more potential sail combinations, and is extremely well equipped for comfortable extended cruising with many recent upgrades noted herein.

ITHAKA sleeps four in two staterooms, plus two in the main salon. The interior is generously appointed with hand-rubbed satin-finished teak with louvered doors and locker fronts throughout and caned front lockers in the staterooms. The cabin sole is solid teak and holly with satin-varnish finish, and the hull ceiling strips outboard the berths are varnished ash. Numerous hatches and opening portholes provide very nice light and ventilation throughout.


The forward cabin has a large V-berth with lots of storage, including a hanging locker, twin bureaus and multiple lockers above the berths on each side. A large opening hatch and two opening portholes provide great light and ventilation. Forward of the cabin is access to a divided chain locker. 


The enclosed head with shower is aft and to port, with access from the forward stateroom or from the main salon. There is a manual toilet, vanity with porcelain sink, shower curtain and custom teak-framed mirror. A dorade vent and opening porthole provide light and ventilation.


The main salon has a full-length extendable settee to starboard, with multiple storage lockers outboard. An L-shaped settee to port extends to a double berth when needed for extra guests. There is a drop-leaf table just off center, with useful utensil/bottle storage in the middle, easily accommodating six guests when fully opened. There are louvered-door storage compartments above and outboard, as well as enclosed storage behind the settee seat back. Due to all the tanks being located below the cabin sole, there is relatively more storage space under all the settees compared to most boats. Two deck hatches and six oversized opening portholes provide lots of light and ventilation.


The U-shaped galley is aft to starboard, conveniently located next to the companionway. There is extensive countertop area and abundant storage throughout.

The aft stateroom features a double berth to starboard and a single berth to port, with a seat in the middle. There is an abundance of lockers and drawers on both sides and a large hanging locker to port, as well as an additional countertop and top/bottom lockers forward to port. Natural light and ventilation are provided by three opening portholes and a large deck hatch.
