Showcases a comfortable cruising yacht that still has plenty of performance

All of the sailing action aboard the 545 takes place at the very stern, which is handy for the guests, but a bit cramped for those doing the work. There are only two winches aboard the boat, both of which are electric. This works with the self-tacking jib and all sails on furlers, but it leaves precious few options to sailors that want to play with the sail plan a bit. And it means that sheets must be clutched when not actively being trimmed. Anyone who wants to sail the 545 in a more serious way, whether on long cruises or weekend races, will want to add more winches.

That idea of leaving the crew work to a very few the very back of the boat continues with the electronic displays, which cannot be seen from the cockpit. They are small for a yacht of this size, and their placement, on the cockpit cowling next to the winches, means they’re often covered by sheets...
