The Explorer 45, designed by Stan Huntingford, will bring you "a little peace, a lot of independence". This vessel is an exceptional cruising boat of moderately heavy displacement with full keel offering a stable, sea kindly ride. There were approximately 30 made. Her design will give you standing stability in a heavy seaway. From the thick fiberglass hull to her warm interior, the Explorer 45 is a worthy, comfortable and safe blue water cruiser.
She comes with a nice sail inventory:
A spinnaker and pole, 2 main sails, 2 jibs, 2 staysails.
A Vacuflush toilet system is included for you to install.
An Alaskan stove/heater is included. The chimney is installed.
There is an older working Ratheon Radar ready to be installed.
There is a huge cockpit with 3 large lazerette storage areas. The framework for a Bimini is also included. Sails are in storage and in good condition.
Forward cabin features a V berth. Moving aft there long settee 6'6" to starboard and a dinette to port followed by a U-shpaed galley. Navigation center to starboard with full sized chart table and drawers, lockers under and book/electronics shelves on either side. Moving aft is a sea berth to starboard with engine access to port. Aft cabin has very large berths double and single crossing the width of the aft stateroom. Two enclosed heads one in aft cabin which does not have a head at this time. And one for use from salon or forward cabin. There is a very large storage area accessible from the cockpit and engine room.
