From CCYD comes this new 45M sloop realized in conjunction with the Ron Holland Design that took care of the naval architecture, and partly of both exterior and interior design. This is a yacht built on the ultimate technology, with great regard to auxiliary accessories proper made for sailing, aiming at improving either performance or manoeuvres also by a small crew. In order to achieve that, the 45M was fitted up with a lifting keel that allows the yacht to sail also by a low seabed.

An aluminium mast, 55.40 metres in height above the waterline, stows 460 square metres of main in a cutter rig that provides additional 418 square metres of Genoa and 194 square metres of Jib. When sailing downwind, it is possible to increase the sail area hoisting a 634 metre spinnaker. The boom is in carbon.

The aluminium hull and the composite superstructure make for solidity, weight - saving and an optimal mass distribution. Speaking of the design this hull features huge side windows, while the deck shows a great deckhouse housing a comfortable area consisting of a relax zone and a nav area that opens into the main saloon and the dinning area. Alongside the below deck run guest and crew cabins and a master suite. The aft area from amidships to the garage for a tender is dedicated to guests and divided into two Vips and two in - line single cabins, each with own bathroom. The full - beamed master suite has two private bathrooms. The crew quarter is in the bow and features two stacked berths and a captain's double, each with own private bathroom, a service area, the crew dinning room and a huge galley. In order to improve performance under way the American yard has provided his 45M with a powerful MTU 12V 2000 M70, capable to feature a maximum speed of 17 knots, according with the yard's data.
