This Bristol 47.7 functions and looks like a modern yacht. 
Introduced in 1975, the Bristol 47.7 had a long (19 year) production run thanks to its smart looks, superior construction and sailing ability.   These boats have held up well and the timelessness of their design has kept up demand.  FRANCES has seen all of the upgrades required to give the next owner decades of sailing enjoyment.  She functions and looks like a modern yacht.  Some of her highlights are below.  More photos and listing details will be coming soon.

Vessel Overview:

FRANCES features the preferred full varnished teak interior with varnished teak and holly sole. It is evident that the builder paid careful attention to matching the wood grains as the panels in the teak cabinetry are particularly even in color and depth of grain.   The owners have been diligent about keeping up the interior varnish and have used Epifanes rubbed effect varnish on the sole and drawer fronts which provides just the right amount of sheen without being gaudy.   As a serious cruising vessel, the 47.7 was designed with superb natural light and ventilation She boasts six large opening ports, ten smaller opening ports, two large hatches, and 2 smaller hatches, as well as 4 polished stainless steel dorades. Most opening ports and hatches are fitted with screens. 3 recent reverse cycle air conditioning units (2014) provide plenty of zoned heating or cooling as the climate dictates. 

The forward cabin features a large V-berth with filler.  The filler neatly stows on the underside of the headliner and has been varnished to match the interior brightwork.   Below the berth there is storage in three lockers.   The hull is lined with full-length varnished teak ceilings which means even the insides of the lockers are finished in varnished teak.  Chain locker access is located at the fwd bulkhead. Aft of the port V there is a 4 drawer bureau with an additional locker outboard while opposite to starboard is a hanging locker. Private access to the forward head is to port. The Forward Head features a manual W.C. currently plumbed to a holding tank with Y valve.  Teak grate in head.  The head has an ensuite shower, porcelain sink vanity with pressure H&C water, and generous storage.

The Main Salon features an L settee to port which makes out to a double berth.  There are two barrel chairs opposite.  Salon upholstery was replaced in 2021 (Sunbrella Canvas Air Blue). Storage is voluminous; forward of the barrel chairs is a countertop with a locker and shelves below as well as  another locker outboard. There are deep lockers behind the chairs and a second row of lockers above with bookshelves. This arrangement is mirrored to port while below the settee there is even more storage in drop face lockers. Aft of the L-settee is a cabinet with top loading freezer box, outboard of which is a bar cabinet. Dining is from a large drop leaf varnished teak table.

Storage is abundant in several lockers and drawers as well as racks for spices and cups.

Aft of the Salon and to port is the walk-through to the private aft cabin. Access to the machinery compartment and electrical panels is inboard while outboard is an extensive Navigator's Station with full vessel electronics, stowage for manuals, flip top chart table, below is a set of drawers and navigator's seat.
