Made for the pleasure seeker
Storage abounds. From the optional live bait tank built into the transom to the various coaming lockers and twin large removable bins in the cockpit floor, there's a place for everything.
For your convenience, cockpit floor hatches are gas strut assisted, lockable and fitted with rubber seals - another case of little features that make a big difference. Being such a sizeable area, the cockpit serves two key features. For the game fisherman it is a well conceived and functional platform. For the cruising family it is the social hub. To support both these pursuits we've included a cockpit sink with drain board and, next to it, a large cool box.
Everything is designed to please the eye and enhance your boating pleasure. Why not have it all?
Beneath the new generation profile, lightweight hardtop you'll find a most hospitable flybridge. Large, light and airy, it is where you and your friends are sure to gather both while running and at rest.
The large, open plan flybridge features lounges that comfortably seat six adults (including one that converts to a day bed), a wetbar complete with sink, mixer tap and drink holders and an optional fridge. The flybridge also has its own independent sound system to that of the saloon.
The new helm design puts you in a very commanding position: the seats are luxurious, the view all-encompassing and the ergonomics of the new console design are outstanding. This includes top-mounted, twin-lever electronic engine control units and a choice of different formats to suit the electronic display options you want installed.
Before leaving the flybridge, note the additional security and safety of a lockable GRP hatch that closes the flybridge off from the stairway. The 45 is a remarkable boat and it is the combination of hundreds of individual features.
Some of these are major features, like propeller tunnels that provide greater forward thrust and an underwater exhaust system that minimises engine noise and fumes. Others are small but contribute much to the overall appeal of the 45. One example is the recessed cleats in the aft corners of the cockpit with their optional clip-on covers; a design that creates a smooth profile and prevents fishing lines getting caught.
The computer aided hull design is certainly one of the major features. This is largely responsible for the exceptional hydrodynamics: quick to plane, stable yet delightfully responsive, and truly robust.
You will also note the engine room is a very open and functional space. This is the result of creating a separate pump room that houses air-conditioning compressors, fresh water pumps and other associated equipment. This compartment is accessed via the portside guest cabin and aids maintenance accessibility.
In the world of mid-sized luxury flybridges, this is the boat that raises the bar; this is the boat that says 'yes, you can have it all'.
