Liberty means freedom. And to a sailor, freedom to enjoy high performance, comfort and safety, without restraint. The Liberty 458 was designed and built with excellence in mind.
Graceful lines. Unsurpassed structural integrity. Exceptional directional stability. Built by Shin Fa Industry, one of Taiwan's oldest and most respected boat builders, working collectively with her developers and inspectors, the Liberty 458 sets an example of the highly perfected craftsmanship and construction techniques now emanating from Taiwan.
Her spacious interior provides an impressive amount of space, for living, lounging, dining and sleeping, with unbelievable storage, making her a great liveaboard and off shore cruiser.
Warm polished teak, gleaming brass ports - special amenities such as the glass enclosed beverage cabinet, with indirect lighting, add touches of luxury and elegance in the uniquely designed salon. Deck prisms, strategically placed in the companionways, galley, heads and navigation station, reflect day light, creating a bright, airy feeling.
The aft cabin, with its oversized berth, is available in either athwartship or fore and aft versions. The handsome stern transom windows provide additional light, creating a pleasing visual effect. The ports on the starboard and port allows for excellent cross ventilation. A full length hanging locker with drawers and additional storage for shoes and off season apparel is more than adequate.
The large molded-in shower eliminates showering in cramped quarters and cleans up with a simple wipe down. The cantilevered sink enables use of both facilities simultaneously.
The well designed galley of the Liberty 458 receives the applause of both off shore and liveaboard sailors. It's compact, but not crowded, with space for a microwave oven and abundant storage for large pots and pans, dishes and provisions. The double stainless steel sinks are convenient to the dining area and the general layout allows the galley chef to be included in the conversation without being inconvenienced by passing traffic. With creative utilization of space, attention to detail, and superb finishing throughout, it is not surprising that the Liberty 458 has earned the respect of everyone who has experienced her exceptional comfort and performance.
The Liberty 458's uncluttered deck design allows crew to move freely and safely, with considerable room for lounging, sunning or fishing. With all lines aft to self-tailing winches, convenience and ease of handling is assured. Her handsome exterior, with stainless steel or brass ports, is enhanced with sufficient teak to please the eye without being a burden to maintain. Coded wiring and easy engine access from both sides saves time and energy when maintenance is necessary. Bulwark mounted stanchions essentially eliminate the possibility of leaking.
The spacious interior of the Liberty 458 is available in several configurations, allowing you to fulfill your individual requirements. You can conveniently work at the chart table while sitting down, or standing; and the moveable bucket seats allow you to increase the seating capacity of the dining area. Creative utilization of space results in unsurpassed storage capabilities. With four large hanging lockers and numerous drawers and cabinets, the Liberty 458 is the perfect liveaboard and offshore cruiser.
She is in a class by herself.
