Loaded with options, cruising comforts and the luxuries of home, this semi-displacement cruiser is the perfect weekender and holiday home on the water.
The current owner has spent the past few years upgrading this beautiful 45 ft motor yacht to allow for easy couples cruising. This has included the fitting of a new 250KG Davit on the bow for safe and convenient launching and retrieval of the tender as well as freeing up more space at the aft of the vessel.
Often taking off for a few nights up the river with the dog, single-handed docking was vital and hence the installation of a Yacht Controller. This allows the engines and bow thruster to be controlled from a remote at your fingertips and takes the stress out of coming in and out of the berth when light-handed.
Designed for coastal cruising and entertaining alike “Salty Paws” sure will inspire long periods on board with family and friends. Her vast cockpit and entertaining flybridge, easy access to the bow and high freeboard make her feel significantly larger than 45ft.
The stainless framed glass sliding doors allow a seamless transition from the cockpit to the saloon and easy lockup when it’s time to go home. Surrounded by glass and high gloss timberwork the fully air-conditioned saloon and galley space feels luxurious and bright. The comforts of home (and more) ensure you and your guests can relax without compromise and concentrate on exploring and enjoying what the Australian cruising life can deliver.
The galley is fitted with a 4 burner electric cooktop, large fridge/freezer and an additional drinks fridge located in the saloon. With ample storage and bench space, the galley is equipped for extended cruising.
Twin double cabins, each with en-suites, allows 2 couples (or mum, dad and the kids) to cruise in comfort and privacy.
The master suite features a queen island bed, separate shower and electric head. The cabins are flooded with natural light from the port and starboard portholes and an opened garden hatch overhead. Ample wardrobe and storage spaces will allow you to unpack, declutter and relax.
240v power onboard is delivered through shore power when on the dock or the 12KVA Generator when cruising or anchored. The 12v systems on the boat are provided by 4 x House 2 x Engine 1 x Generator 1 x Bow Thruster batteries which are charged by the onboard battery charger.
Powered by Caterpillar 3208TA diesel, shaft drive engines, “Salty Paws” has a comfortable cruise speed of 14 knots. However, if a southerly buster is coming, make those horses gallop and she sees 21 knots which a quick run to safe harbour.
The generous and social flybridge is something that sets this boat apart from the rest. Traditionally this space is for the skipper and a mate and predominately used for navigation only. However, with re-upholstered lounges and day beds abundant, the Horizon 45 Flybridge is an entire entertaining area with a view. Surrounded by new clears the vistas are endless making this the perfect spot for a sundowner, a book or to take in the fireworks with friends. The helm position is centre and overlooks the Raymarine navigation equipment and allows easy comfortable access to the vessels controls.
“Salty Paws” has been truly loved, maintained and upgraded by her current owner but after falling in love with the lifestyle she delivers it’s time to upgrade thus giving the next lucky family the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful vessel at a realistic price point.
