The headroom is 6' 4" thru most of the interior.
The forward-most compartment is a deck forepeak locker containing the anchor rode and sail storage and a large deck hatch with plexiglass lense.
Aft of the sail locker is the VIP Head, shower, vanity with sink.
The fabulous VIP Forward Stateroom/Office follows and features a double berth upper and a single berth below. The double upper berth can convert to storage or a child's bunk with the single berth becoming a large straight settee — loads of storage under top double and behind and under the single/settee. Starboard is the desk and closet with additional storage. What a great layout!
Stepping aft, the salon has an “L”-shaped dinette and the galley on the starboard side. The straight settee is to port, followed by a navigation station. Steps at the forward end of the engine room centerline lead up to the cockpit.
The nav station is opposite the galley to port with a large hinged chart table with storage below. The port side passageway past the nav station has a full 6' 4" headroom and continues aft past the engine room to the GREAT aft stateroom with centerline walk-around queen-size berth and an en suite head.
- The Liberty 458s are renowned as comfortable, fast, and safety under all sea conditions.
- She is cutter rigged 46 feet in length with a 12-foot 6-inch beam. She has a 6-foot 10-inch draft and 65-foot mast height (bridge clearance 63.5 feet from the waterline). She has ample sail area, including a 400 square foot boom furling main, 130% genoa, 900 square foot asymmetric, and a 1300 square foot spinnaker. A storm trysail and storm trysail are included.
- She is 44,000 lbs fully laden with 185 gallons of fuel, 240 gallons of water, and fully provisioned.
- She sails well in 40+ knots. She sails well in light air and does not suffer from lee or weather helm. She sails well under jib/genoa alone. She has a comfortable motion, yet with a good turn of speed producing 200 Nm days on a beam reach.
- 2017 New B&G autopilot with T3 hydraulic ram. Runs flawlessly and integrated with a full B&G system, including Zeus2 at the helm and Triton autopilot controller at the helm. Backup electric Auto marine 3000 autopilots.
- The three blades Maxprop gives excellent maneuverability under power and in reverse and adds 1/4 to 1/2 knot of speed under sail when the blades automatically feather.

Complete B&G integrated system including:
- Zeus2 chart plotter and Triton autopilot controller at the helm
- T3 hydraulic autopilot
- 4G broadband dual radars

- GoFree wireless to allow access to the Zeus2 on a tablet. This unit is configured as a wifi bridge and not an internet-accessible access point. We do not connect safety or mission-critical systems to the internet. All updates are completed in port with SD cards to avoid bricking and the introduction of vulnerabilities and latent defects from the vendor software patches. We have experienced this before with B&G resulting in electronic units being replaced under warranty and taking some weeks to turnaround.

- EPIRB (battery replacement suggested for Nov 2012 but tests ok) ACR GlobalFix reregistered as a backup. Stored in a ditch bag.

Typically pump 1 is fitted at the bottom float switch and bilge pump 2 is fitted to the middle float switch although any float switch can be used with any pump. We've found the Rule lever arm switches to be very unreliable and have been progressively replacing them with Johnson and Water Witch solid state switches. She is a dry boat and it's only a leaking grey water tank that triggers any bilge pump counts when it overflows.

Electrical Generation and Monitoring
- The aft arch has one kilowatt of solar installed. This is enough power to generate 4 to 5 KW on most days and more than enough power to keep up with refrigeration and any other electrical need.
- Each panel is 350W, and on sunny days, this will recover all house bank loads consumed overnight. It will also heat hot water, and carry any underway loads.
- The main engine has both a 55 Amp and 120 Amp alternators, which is sufficient to recover all house banks, starter banks, and even heating hot water electrically.
- Kubota single cylinder 7 kW 12V DC generator is fitted with a 12A 120Amp alternator and also heats water in the water heater through its heat exchanger. The generator runs well under load and has only 1227hours.
- The hot water system has a 240V 2500W heating element, which generates about 600W of heating on 110V through the inverter or consumes about 50A through 12V. Hot water can be heated through the inverter on 110 with the generator running or on 12V with either the generator running or from solar panels deployed in full sun.
- House bank is four 4 X 100 Ahr Carbon foam batteries in two banks of 12V 200Ahr. (new in 2018 These are more tolerant of deeper discharge cycles and sulfation. Extensive data capture demonstrates the carbon foam batteries charge faster and provide much greater discharge capacity than any other lead-acid technologies.
- The start battery bank is two spiral wound Optima sealed 750A start batteries (new in 2016 and 2019)
- The 3 x 350W solar panels all have individual Victron MPPT 100/30 SmartSolar charge controllers, are monitored through the Victron Bluetooth app on your tablet or cell phone.
- The house and the start batteries are all monitored through a Heart Interface Link 2000
- All new wiring run and installed for new and upgraded systems. All wiring old and new has been either cable tied or run in dedicated conduits.
- 4.5 horsepower Mercury 2 stroke outboard.
- Outboard crane located on arch stbd aft
