The Hunter 45DS has a striking appearance and a large cockpit with dual helm station. The yacht has a penthouse style aft stateroom, without sacrificing the main salon. The wraparound windshield delivers a sleek and distinctive profile that also allows huge volumes of natural light inside the boat. The brilliant illumination enhances the rich cherry woodwork to create a truly stunning interior.
Other Interior Features of the Hunter 45DS:
-Pullman forward cabin layout. Placing the head and shower compartment in the forepeak allows an en-suite vanity and storage space along the starboard side just opposite the double berth mounted on the port side; ample storage shelving and drawers are provided throughout as well as a large hanging locker.
-Expanded aft stateroom. The expanded aft stateroom features a centerline queensize berth, fully accessible from both sides. A large hanging locker, drop-in bins along both sides of the berth and nightstand shelving offer extensive storage capacity. Private access to the aft head is provided along with plenty of natural lighting and ventilation.
On deck, the twin wheel configuration provides the helmsperson with the ultimate in comfort, control and visibility for every point of sail.
Transom access from the cockpit is improved with a wide, unobstructed walkway between the leather wrapped wheels. An aft facing pivoting chart plotter bracket holds an optional Raymarine E-120 networked to a smaller full-function display at the nav station.
On the centerline of the cockpit is a Corian® table that also functions as a hand hold, foot brace, drink holder, and cold storage bin. It's a multifunctional feature that greatly enhances the comfort and utility of the cockpit.
Other on deck highlights include:
-Stainless Steel Traveler Arch. Moves the traveler up overhead and to the end of the boom for easier adjustment and an overall cleaner cockpit.
-B & R rig by Selden. The B & R design is proven reliable, more stable, and easer to handle over thousands of boats with thousands of ocean miles. Selden's fanatical attention to detail in the spar construction ensures long term reliability unmatched by any spar manufacturer.
-Doubled Ended Mainsheet provides the crew with unprecedented access to this important control.
The traditional starboard cabin top winch location for the mainsheet has been preserved, but with an additional control at the port helm station. The overall construction is the same modular method used on other Hunter models.
The hull is balsa sandwich above the waterline with solid FRP below the waterline and two layers of Kevlar in the forward sections for extra impact resistance. The structural grid / pan is hand laminated in a single piece and fused to the hull with the interior components preassembled in place. The plywood cored deck is matched to the hull using an outward flange joint sealed with 3M 5200 and mechanically fastened with both screws and bolts.
