SALT is a 2021 Solaris 50 listed for sale with YOTI and COVE in Melbourne.

This exquisite Solaris 50 Yacht is a masterpiece of modern design and ultimate sophistication. Elevate your yachting experience and embrace a world of luxury, comfort, and genuine performance.

Presenting as new, SALT is offered for sale by her original owner. She presents an opportunity to step into one of the worlds most respected performance cruisers at a significant saving on a new order and without the extended build times. Toby Hodges of Yachting World called her 'arguably the sexiest 50-foot mono hull out there' and summed her up with three words: luxury, style and performance.

SALT was customised with an immense list of upgrades. Just a few of the more significant items include:

o Hall Spars carbon mast and carbon V boom with rod rigging.
o Stunning painted topsides.
o Full teak decks with grey caulking... Style, durability, and comfort underfoot.
o Air conditioning and heating system.
o Bow thruster.
o Comprehensive instrument package.
o Sail wardrobe by Norths; 3Di main, 3Di jibs, Code Zero and Asymmetric.
o 4 electric Harken winches, 2 additional winches, self-tacking jib track, genoa tracks, and carbon bow sprit.

SALT has a three cabin, two head layout and boasts a real tender garage for convenient storage of water toys, dinghy, or additional equipment.

Solaris have been building and refitting vessels in Italy by the sea for 40 years. They employ best of the best building practices using high quality materials. The composite bulkheads are laminated to the hull and deck (not glued), chainplates are composite, and the hull is married to the deck with fibreglass - this all creates a super stiff and strong 'cage' like structure giving safety and speed with no creaks and cracks. Building models up to 111 feet, this is a yard with serious experience, knowledge, and passion for beautifully practical sailing vessels.

SALT is your passport to adventure and suits easy day sailing, blue water passages, and regatta excitement. SALT has been used for exactly that with the owner stretching her legs up the East Coast and competing at Hamilton Island Race Week.

The Solaris 50 is not just about looks; it's a powerhouse of performance. With advanced sail handling systems and a powerful engine, you'll effortlessly glide through the water, making every journey satisfying. This is a head turner with pedigree and performance to back it up.

SALT is available for inspection at Sandringham in Victoria, contact Tim Vine for further details.
