Offshore cruising boats of this length are probably the maximum size that most cruising couples can comfortably handle without taking on additional crew. 

Even so, it's likely that powered sail handling devices - sheet and halyard winches, electric or hydraulic furling gears etc - will be necessary, all of which adds to the cost and complexity of the boat.

  • Description
  • Main Points
  • Specifications

Whatever angle you take, the Oceanis 45 is a balanced sailing yacht. A very well-proportioned cruiser, she leaves in her wake some very fine performances.

Naval designer :  Finot - Conq et associés

Interior designer :  Nauta Design

European Yacht of the Year 2012

Exterior design

On a very stable seaworthy hull, the Oceanis 45’s deck plan clears space and simplifies manoeuvring. She has made very good progress in her ability to combine sailing speed and the pleasure of living on board. Long cruises are now much safer.

sailing yacht 45 feet

Interior design

Ranging from two to four cabins, the Oceanis 45 offers several layout versions, clearly differentiating it in its category. The three cabin and three bathroom layout is a perfect example. The interior ambiance has great scope for personalization in the choice of contemporary light oak or a more traditional Mahogany.

Confidently answering the call of the ocean

The Oceanis 45’s many innovations simplify life on board as much as they do sailing. The ocean beckons.

sailing yacht 45 feet

Safe and very convivial, the enormous cockpit is equipped with a table that can contain a refrigerated icebox. It also features a tactile multi-function screen and outdoor lighting.

45° companionway

The mainsail arch, characteristic of all the large Oceanis yachts is an important innovation that has led to many architectural developments, among which is a very gently sloping 45° companionway. 

Pack Performance

The performance of the Oceanis 45 is greatly boosted by the Performance Pack option. This includes a set of Elvström ‘carbon’ sails combined with the German System, used to trim all the sails from the helm station.

X-Yachts X46: Best Full-Size Cruiser 45 to 55 Feet

  • By Herb McCormick
  • Updated: December 9, 2019

X-Yachts

The big-boat classes in the 2020 Boat of the Year competition presented some big problems for the judging panel. Take the Full-Size Cruiser 45 to 55 Feet fleet, with a quartet of extremely solid contenders across a wide range of price points and with different design briefs and objectives, ranging from versatile performance-style cruisers to a dedicated bluewater passagemaker. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

At $550,000, the Bavaria C50 packed a lot of punch into a 50-footer. “It’s billed as a family cruiser, and features twin helms and a single rudder,” judge Dan Spurr said. “The representative who presented the boat emphasized the division between the entertainment area and the cockpit and working areas, and that cockpit really resonated with me—for a bigger boat, it’s very efficient to sail.” The Bavaria also struck a chord with fellow judge Ed Sherman: “I’ve been watching the evolution of Bavarias since they first started coming to the United States, and they’ve come a long way. Everything about them is significantly better than the earlier boats, and you get a lot of features for the price. It’s a player in this group.”

Elan Impression 45.1

From a value standpoint, the Elan Impression 41.5 left a strong, good impression on the judging panel. Judge Ralph Naranjo was particularly enamored with the overall build quality of the hull laminate. “It’s an ­ISO-approved Category A offshore boat; they did a really nice job with the vacuum infusion,” he said. “I was crawling in those aft lockers looking at the autopilot arrangement, and could see how well the deck elements and bulkheads went in. And the autopilot installation was great, with an excellent stainless-steel bracket that was bolted and cantilevered to catch both the deck and the bulkhead. The autopilot and rams have to take a huge amount of thrust or push/pull; they need to be in there securely. And they were.”

It was clearly going to take an outstanding vessel to sway the panel’s opinions. It turned out there was not only one other formidable yacht to choose from, but two.

Amel 50

“The Amel 50 is truly an oceangoing globe-trotter,” Sherman said, speaking about the latest, highly anticipated model from the long-standing stalwart French builder. “With a signature watertight forward crash bulkhead, a centrally located sea chest for easily isolating a leak and shutting it down, to a globally conscious shore-power system that can deal with 50 or 60 hertz and 120 or ­230-240 volts, Amel has designed a boat that will have you covered wherever your travels take you. For those who want to cruise in luxury, this is the boat.”

“Amel has long been one of the only worldwide ­companies to offer what is essentially a ‘ready to cruise’ boat,” Spurr said. “The boat can be operated entirely from the security of the cockpit, which has a windshield and hardtop, like many solo offshore racers. Some of my colleagues didn’t like this feature, feeling it isolated the helm from feeling the weather. The boat is not inexpensive, but it also seemed to have the highest-quality finish.”

Bavaria C50

“To me, it’s more of a motorsailer than a traditional cruising sailboat,” Naranjo said. “Her performance under sail is somewhat limited by a fairly high displacement and a modest sail area. She is easy to handle, though, because of her power-assisted sail ­trimming and setting capabilities.”

Sailing prowess is never a debatable issue with X-Yachts, however, and after treating the judges to a world-class sailing experience, they ­ultimately decided that the X-Yachts X46 was the Best Full-Size Cruiser 45 to 55 Feet for 2020. (It was a back-to-back winning effort from X-Yachts; in 2019, X-Yachts’ X49 was also honored as the Best Full-Size Cruiser.)

“This was just a joy to sail,” Sherman said. “A ­performance sailing boat in every sense —very close-winded. It was everything I’ve come to expect from X-Yachts. They are put together by real craftspeople who take a great deal of concern in everything they do. So many little things. For instance, the wiring connections behind the panel board are all bent to 90 degrees and secured in place, and they hand-solder the solid copper bus links between the switches. This is all labor-intensive stuff that you just don’t see on most boats. They’ve always been known for using top-quality gear, and they certainly didn’t cut any corners here.

“X-Yachts are put ­together by real craftspeople who take a lot of pride in their work.”

“The epoxy resin they use in the layup is going to last forever, and the post-cure process is just top shelf,” Sherman continued. “I mean, what can I say? And I believe the pricing is actually pretty darn good. This boat costs $740,000, which is nothing to laugh at—it’s a significant amount of money. But when you compare it dollarwise to some of the other boats out there of similar lengths, you know what? It kind of stands out. And so, yes, I’m a fan. I’ve always been.”

“Like all X-Yachts, it has a unique feature in the construction, with a steel grid that sits on stringers with a balanced lifting point where you can actually lift the entire boat with a crane, with a strop that comes down through a hatch,” Spurr said. “The quality of construction all around seemed very good, with the keel actually bolted to the grid. Basically, we were told that you can’t lose the keel on this boat, which is pretty remarkable. And it’s really a handsome boat all the way around.”

Not to mention, when the final votes were cast, it was a winning one.

Size and design of the sailboat

The best sailboats in this category offer a well-balanced blend of performance, storage, and living space. As many of these boats are designed for long-distance cruising, having ample storage for provisions, equipment, and personal items is essential. While smaller sailboats might be more affordable and easier to handle, you'll need to strike a balance between size and the level of comfort you desire on extended voyages.

Durability of a bluewater sailboat

These boat's hulls are typically constructed with sturdy, long-lasting materials like fiberglass, steel, or even aluminum. Additionally, the rigging and deck hardware should be robust, capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions and continuous use. As you evaluate potential bluewater sailboats, pay attention to the quality of the craftsmanship and materials used throughout the boat, as this will largely determine its ability to handle the rigors of ocean sailing.

Seaworthiness of the sailboat

This characteristic refers to a boat's ability to handle rough seas, high winds, and other challenging conditions that you might encounter on your journeys. A seaworthy sailboat should exhibit:

  • A stable, well-designed hull that can efficiently cut through waves
  • A deep, secure cockpit to protect the crew from the elements
  • High-quality, easily accessible safety equipment
  • Solid, watertight hatches and portlights

When evaluating a sailboat's seaworthiness, it's important to consider its design, construction, and previous ocean-crossing performance, if available.

Comfort and livability of the boat

As you'll likely be spending extended periods at sea, it's essential to have a comfortable living space to make your journey more enjoyable. Key factors in comfort and livability include:

  • A roomy, well-ventilated cabin with ample headroom
  • Adequate sleeping arrangements for the crew
  • A functional galley for meal preparation
  • Efficient systems for heating, ventilation, and lighting
To learn more about bluewater sailing , here's our comprehensive article on it.

Let's discuss a few key factors you should look for to find the perfect bluewater sailboat for your needs.

Size matters : As we're focusing on sailboats under 50 feet, it's important to think about how the size of the boat will impact your cruising experience. Smaller sailboats tend to be easier to manage and maintain, while larger ones typically offer more space and comfort. Take into account your sailing skills and the size of your crew when making a decision.

Design and construction : A well-built sailboat plays a vital role in your safety and success when sailing in blue waters. Look for proven bluewater sailboat designs, like those found on Waterborne Magazine's list or Yachting World's selection. A solid construction and well-maintained hull will ensure your boat can withstand the rigors of offshore sailing.

Budget and maintenance costs : It's crucial to consider not only the initial purchase price but also the ongoing maintenance costs when choosing your bluewater sailboat. Established designs often have a good track record for reliability, which can help keep costs down in the long run. Some sailboats under $100,000 can still provide excellent bluewater cruising experiences.

Sailing purpose and destination : Your choice of sailboat will also depend on the type of sailing you plan to do and the destinations you wish to visit. Are you looking for a boat to tackle lengthy ocean passages or a vessel for coastal cruising? Each type might require different features and focuses, so plan accordingly.

Creature comforts and functionality : Finally, think about the amenities you want on your bluewater sailboat—you'll be spending quite some time onboard. A functional galley, comfortable sleeping arrangements, and a functional navigation station are just a few of the features that can make your sailing experience more enjoyable.

45 foot yacht guide: finding the best yacht for you and your family.

  • December 12, 2019

A 45 foot yacht is a common size vessel for boaters looking to do a bit more than simple day boating or for individuals looking to downsize from a larger yacht. A 45 foot yacht is considered by many boaters to be a great “sweet spot” of providing multiple living spaces and plenty of amenities while still being a very manageable boat. The affordability compared to larger yachts make this size range attractive as well.

While identifying the right size vessel for you is key, you’ll want to consider a number of additional questions about your intended boating activities to help narrow down your buying options. What is your perfect day on the water? Will you be doing a lot of day boating, or mostly long-range cruising? Will you be fishing on the water? How much time do you plan to spend on the yacht (for example, a day, weekends or longer)? Will you be sleeping overnight on the yacht? What is your prior boating experience? How important is speed?

The answers to these questions will be useful in narrowing down the options for consideration. Another major consideration when purchasing a yacht is whether you will opt for a new vessel or go the route of a pre-owned yacht. 

If your yachting experience is limited, going with a new 45 foot yacht can be an attractive option. Buying a new yacht gives boaters an increased sense of security as it limits the unknowns that might come with a pre-owned vessel. You’ll know all the components are working as designed and the yacht will come with a warranty. 

If you have years of experience on the water and are comfortable in and around boats, hitting the pre-owned market might be simple and easy for you. Experienced boaters are less intimidated by potential maintenance and repairs that come with older vessels. While used boats cost less on the front end, buyers will want to consider the full cost of ownership which takes into account maintenance, insurance, and more. Also, buyers seeking options on the pre-owned market will want to only go back so many years. While large vessels get increasingly inexpensive the more years you go back, boats with a significant number of years on them can be misleading with respect to value. As a boat ages a number of years, the number of issues that arise that an owner must deal with increase dramatically. We typically suggest sticking with newer boats even if that means a slightly smaller vessel.

Of course, if you’re using a yacht broker, this process is simplified and you can leverage the broker’s knowledge to seek out the best options from both new yachts and the pre-owned market.

Having the right yacht broker can make or break the yacht purchase process. Tom George Yacht Group brokers first seek to understand the buyer’s long-term goals with the vessel and present purchase options for consideration that will maximize the potential for long-term enjoyment and successful ownership.

What about yacht type? Cruisers tend to go by a number of different terms such as express cruiser or sports cruiser. Either way, they describe a yacht with a single deck above the hull and living quarters down below. These yachts tend to be more sleek and sporty.

Flybridge or sedan bridge yachts are essentially express yachts with another level on top of the main deck that is large enough for a control station and some seating. The flybridge gives the owner a way to navigate the vessel from a higher vantage point, get a more open air feel while navigating or simply provide a way to get away from the other guests down below. 

Another category that can occasionally overlap with the others is the motor yacht or power cruiser category. These boats tend to have very nice accommodations for owners and guests while providing ample power to get where they want to get. 

A sportfish is a general term used to describe yachts that are geared towards fishing which is common in this size range. These yachts will have a spacious cockpit from which to fish and have features and storage aimed at storing and handling rods, bait, tackle and other gear you might have to pursue your trophy catch.

Unsure of the best yacht type or if a 45 foot yacht is the right size range for you? Talk to your yacht broker about how you plan to use the boat and he or she will be able to provide you with some excellent options to consider.

45 Foot Yacht Options

Marquis 42 express.

The new Marquis 42 Express features a large bathing platform aft with abundant, luxurious seating and lounge space outdoors. The air-conditioned cabin will feature a full head, galley and dinette that converts into a berth for overnight stays. It will come standard with most features but the owner can select either a hardtop or bimini top as well as customize the color scheme of the hull and soft goods to taste. 

Carver C43 Coupe

The Carver C43 Coupe has a two stateroom, two head layout. The cutting edge styling and performance data of the C43 continue to impress boaters everywhere. Like all Carver Yachts, the C43 is built tough with “infusion technology.” The result is less weight, more strength and better performance. 

Everglades 435 CC

The flagship model from Everglades the 435CC is one of the most sought after 40+ center consoles on the market. The layout is functional and luxurious at the same time, something that a lot of large center consoles have a tough time achieving. There is no need to sacrifice comfort on this center console and with the ability to add quad 425 HP Yamahas on the back you will not only be the most comfortable but one of the fastest. Learn more about the Everglades 435 CC.

Finding the right 45 foot yacht can be a challenging process depending on your boating experience. Partnering with a Tom George Yacht Group yacht broker can help ensure a smooth process and an end result that leads to years of satisified boating. Please let us know how we can help you in your yacht buying process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of yacht should i get.

The type of yacht you purchase will be largely dictated by how you plan to use the yacht. If you plan to use the yacht mostly for fishing, a sportfish or large center console boat can be a great fit. If doing weekends away or overnighting with guests is a priority, a motor yacht or cruiser could be a great option. Talk to our yacht broker professionals to get further guidance on the best fit based on your planned usage.

Should I consider a pre-owned yacht?

Value can be had on the pre-owned yacht market if you have the experience to know what to look for and what to avoid. Furthermore, partnering with the right yacht broker can be crucial especially when considering pre-owned yachts. While the upfront cost for a pre-owned vessel can be less than purchasing new, it’s important to think through all costs associated with ownership including maintenance, insurance and more.

What’s a great starting point for a yacht search?

Contacting a yacht broker can jumpstart your search process as your broker can provide a list of options well suited to your needs. Furthermore, a large boat show can be a great way to gain exposure to a myriad of boat and yacht options on the market today.
