The gorgeous cabinetry abounds with a full length hanging locker,
drawers and great storage everywhere. 


This 458 features a highly livable interior that works well for long term passagemaking or living aboard. The aft stateroom features a fore & aft queen, huge vented hanging lockers, shelves, cabinets, & drawers. There is an ensuite head with shower & marble counters. The aft stateroom (with new memory foam mattress) is separated from the rest of the boat by the passthru where you find the nav station outboard & engine room access inboard along as well as the electrical panels. A workbench with drawers is in the passthru and is a great place for boat projects.

1984 Liberty 458

 Whether it's safely accomodating your family and friends on local trips or facing greybeards in the Southern Ocean, the Liberty 458 represents one of the finest livaboard bluewater cruisers ever developed. With only 31 of these fine vessels ever built  (offered here is Hull #10) the Liberty is a rare gem indeed. The Australis is an excellent, well maintained example of the Liberty 458.
