Introduced in 1974, the Coronado 45 by Columbia Yachts was the flagship of the line. While the 45 Center Cockpit is the boat most sailors are familiar with, the aft-cockpit 45 was based on the very successful Columbia 43 and reflects the 43's excellent sailing abilities for coastal or offshore sailing.

This is a very roomy boat, with ample headroom and a very large cockpit. She's built tough as nails, but with a hull form and sail plan that provides excellent on-water performance. There are very few vessels in the under $50k price range that will compare.
