Built in the "traditional" fashion with fully encapsulated hull timbers and elegant burmeese teak interior finish, the 45.2 is indeed a classic yacht.
"Du Vent" is ready to cruise with great maintenance history and lots of upgrades. She has a good sail inventory and has the ability to be sailed with her standard in-mast furling system or raise a classic mainsail with full battens on the secondary track on the furling mast!
