Featured Listing Of The Week: 2017 Coastal Craft 45
The Coast Craft 45 starts with a commercial quality welded aluminum planing hull that slices through choppy seas at speeds far exceeding the typical cruiser. The main helm station is roomy and comfortable, featuring a CCB doublewide seat, Edson wood-trimmed tilt wheel and joystick control. Additional control stations at the aft cockpit and flybridge also include joystick controls. The spacious flybridge is accessed by way of a gentle sloping stainless steel staircase from the aft cockpit. The upper deck offers seating for 10 along with a wet bar and sound system. The extended hardtop is home to the davit crane, dinghy and custom dinghy caulks. The folding radar tower holds a variety of different navigation and entertainment antennas and receivers to make for safe and comfortable passages.
The well-equipped salon and galley are open to the helm, enabling chef, guests and skipper to visit for an evening of fine dining. A drop down LCD TV and Bose sound system complete the entertainment. Teak and holly floors extend from salon through the forward master stateroom, which is equipped with a queen berth surrounded by cherry cabinets and a private head and separate shower. A guest stateroom located below the salon features an oversized queen berth and adjacent guest head. The salon settee also converts to a queen berth enabling 6 people to sleep comfortably.
The 45 is powered by twin Volvo D6-435 high performance diesel engines equipped with Volvo IPS 600 drives. This innovative drive system utilizes forward facing Duo-props that run parallel to the hull, drawing un-disturbed water from a plat, hydrodynamic hull surface. A joystick control rotates the drives independently allowing effortless control for maneuvering and docking - including the ability to supply thrust directly sideways, eliminating the need for a bow or stern thruster. Volvo's Dynamic Position System offers virtual anchoring and will hold the vessel's position stationary even in a strong wind or in a tidal current.
The 45 offers a top speed of 30 knots and efficient continuous cruising speeds between 8 and 28 knots. Equally impressive is her fuel efficiency of 1 mile per gallon at 27 knots and near 3 miles per gallon at 8 knots.
