The 45’s classic Formula design lines emanate an overall grace and beauty that immediately attracts attention and admiration. Well beyond state of the art, the very best materials and components are assembled with expert craftsmanship to produce this distinctively fine yacht. Measuring 48´ 2 ˝ overall with a 13´ 11˝ beam, the 45 Yacht design is equally suited to day cruising with family and friends, enjoying several days on the water or extended cruising. The coupe-top design effectively protects the forward cockpit from extreme weather conditions, yet affords ample ventilation through the expansive motorized sunroof. Fresh air also enters through the center walk-thru door and adjustable side vents. The tinted, totally integrated curved windshield reveals a panoramic vista in the absence of forward bracing, an unprecedented feature in this yacht class. 30,000 BTU air conditioning/auxiliary heat is a valuable option. Its multi-vent system keeps the coupe area comfortable with the drop curtain in place. The curvilinear lounge forward, available in exterior-grade Ultraleather™, accommodates several to converse with the captain and companion and enjoy the extensive view while cruising.

At the helm, correctly proportioned molded steps lead to the windshield center walk-thru door with a 316L stainless handrail securing passage. On the foredeck, nonskid surfaces extend to the flush anchor windlass locker where a coiled-hose, fresh water wash-down system is at the ready. The stainless steel anchor rides trimly in the integrated bow platform. Individual safety rails edge the twin Sunbrella® chaise lounges with adjustable backrests, and 316L bow railing with midlevel lifeline cables feature LED lighting, adding an elegant touch. The 45 Yacht helm displays dual electronic engine monitors, Raymarine™ ST70 multifunction color display and GPS navigation system with E120 chartplotter and Seakey™ satellite communication/boat data/security system. A linear array of rocker switches and circuit breakers govern important systems. The Volvo Penta® IPS drive system delivers improved efficiency, acceleration and speed over inboard power, and the intuitive IPS joystick control makes maneuvering in close quarters incredibly easy. Ergonomics for the entire helm area are excellent whether sitting, standing or leaning back against the individually adjustable, double-wide command seats.
