The Fastnet 45 was built to the highest standards for ocean racing and cruising at the respected Dutch yard of Adolf LeComte.  These yachts were designed by William Luders, who created a powerful, sea-kindly vessel with beautiful classic lines.  The interior plan features two private staterooms, two heads with showers, a spacious main salon, an exceptional sea galley, a spacious navigation station, and wonderful touches throughout such as the custom Dutch soapstone and bronze solid fuel fireplace in the salon.  The interior joinery is varnished teak, with solid teak and holly cabin soles.

Excellent space utilization permits the Fastnet 45 to offer a roomy, two stateroom accommodation plan with an uncluttered, full-width main salon and raised galley and navigation area.  The two staterooms are separated by the main salon, which provides an uncommon level of privacy for both staterooms, unique in a 45-foot boat.  Each stateroom has its own head, complete with toilet, vanity, medicine/storage cabinet and shower.  Headroom is 6’ 6’ throughout, and the traditional Dutch fit and finish is evident in all joiner-work.

Topsides, there is an expansive cockpit, a split rig with a removable inner staysail, an elegant sheer and a high bow for slicing through the seas.  Evening Star is a time-proven cruising yacht that has been continuously upgraded and improved by three successive knowledgeable owners.  She has been sailed successfully to Bermuda several times, as well as from Florida to the Bay of Fundy and many cruising spots in between, and there should be no hesitation to take her anywhere.  That there have only been three owners of the boat in her 45 years is remarkable in itself.  She is a joy to sail, sea-kindly, stiff and dry, and surprisingly fast even compared to today’s modern hulls.  She is definitely a “head-turner” in any harbor, and as nice an example of the Fastnet 45 as can be found anywhere.
