DALE CLASSIC 45 DESIGN OVERVIEW
“Stylish, practical and beautifully built….” this is how one of our owners describes his treasured 45. A stunningly individual signature, the Classic 45 offers everything that the Nelson hull lineage stands for. Add to that the legendary DALE sea-keeping, DALE’s unique levels of craftsmanship accentuating her relaxed and timeless classic looks and combine all this to make this special boat a stand out wherever she is.
Building upon the standards established by our renowned 38, the Arthur Mursell designed hull was developed to offer greater levels of performance and sea-keeping, the ‘achingly beautiful’ Classic 45 was born. Not only noted for her looks, her credentials as a serious sea going boat are unquestioned and she is able to withstand the rigours of offshore cruising in the roughest of seas.
The beautifully appointed, handcrafted interior is further enhanced by range of exceptional features giving life on board a feeling of understated luxury. The spacious saloon can be flooded with natural light from an optional panoramic glass sunroof with the drop down bulkhead giving the instant conversion to a stunning open hardtop. The open plan arrangement in the cockpit and deck saloon offer alfresco dining and open air entertaining in perfect surroundings or close things up at the press of a button to create the most beautifully snug interior for dining and relaxing in cosy comfort on a chilly evening.
The clean lines of the stern are uninterrupted by the powered transom door making boarding easy and the wide teak laid side decks, excellent mooring facilities and smooth anchor recovery system all make it a simple task to moor up even if you are on your own. If guests are on board, the two beautifully appointed en-suite cabins are designed with four full sized adults in mind and are a masterclass in exquisite joinery and attention to detail whist attending to every practicality to enhance life on board.
Equally at home on extended cruises and adventures or on inland waterways, the Classic 45 is an extraordinarily versatile vessel.
