2017 Offshore Yachts 80' Pilothouse Let It Bee

This new generation Offshore 80 cockpit motoryacht has enjoyed unmatched care and maintenance while cruising from Florida, the Bahamas, and the entire East Coast of the U.S. since it was commissioned in Ft. Lauderdale by the original owners. With the reputation of having "The softest ride on the water" in all sea and weather conditions, LET IT BEE has served the owners, whether running the boat themselves or with full guest capacity, in a very rewarding way indeed.

The owner, with experience aboard unlimited tonnage commercial ships in all of the world's oceans, brought demands and logical requirements to the build process and the result will certainly benefit her next fortunate owner in many ways. In areas of safety, ease of handling shorthanded, and a long list of significant optional well-chosen gear, you will not find a better equipped and maintained vessel of this size anywhere!!

In Conclusion

LET IT BEE represents the latest thinking from Offshore Yachts, and although the traditional William Crealock concept is a timeless look in form and function, this yacht has been created to go anywhere in style and safety....Park her next to a newly commissioned 80' Offshore today, and you would have difficulty discovering which one was the new vessel! 

The Offshore profile, whether sitting at the yacht club slip or viewed from a distance under way, is instantly recognized for its low profile and gentle sea keeping attitude... a characteristic that most vessels of her size cannot duplicate today. No foolish looking windows or extremely high sided profile here, just a delightful look of efficiency that is in harmony with the oceans of the world.


As stated in the introduction: If you closely inspect Let It Bee, she will exceed your expectations in every category, period!!
