Shaft-drive variant for the long-range boater

On paper, at 14.80 metres (48ft 6in) in length overall, this is a big 45 in typical Barry-Cotter fashion. The hull has a good amount of freeboard for offshore boating at displacement speeds, should you need to really cover the miles in remote areas, and it seems nice and stable despite wearing a big bridge.

In respect of pod versus shaft, experienced boatowners just don’t need a joystick docking device to park their boats but instead have shaft-driven values ingrained in their boating driving habits...

There’s no doubt that for the money it’s an awesome package and coupled with excellent finish and styling

The M45 is based on the 440 Offshore hull (released in 2010) which has undergone a hull extension at the transom and been given a whole new deck design and superstructure to bring it into line with the existing Motoryacht range. It is also the baby of the Motoryacht fleet. Difference is that while the M48, M50, M58 and M73 have fully enclosed flybridges, the M45 is covered on three sides only, with clears around the aft area.

Unlike the 440 Offshore, the M45 has full walkaround side decks, although still retains the same beam and the interior layout centres around two cabins rather than three as found in the 440 Offshore...

Maritimo has delivered a luxury package in its smallest cruiser

Settling into the helm it didn’t take long to adapt to the offset wheel and twin controls within easy reach. Vision was good all around and I noticed the three-section windscreen was equipped with substantial pantograph wipers.

Electronic controls got us into gear without any mechanical drama and we were soon on the plane at around 2200rpm and a gentle 14kts. As we headed into a slow 1 to 1.5m swell clear of the heads, the boat held a steady 19kts at around 2500rpm for a fuel burn of 100lt/h from both engines, giving a range of 307nm with a 10 per cent reserve. At 3000rpm we achieved 24kts for a fuel burn of 142lt/h and a safe 273nm.

Wide-open throttle was at 3300rpm and 27.4kts, which is a couple of knots down on Maritimo’s test results. Steve suggested that three months of growth on the hull had slowed the boat and also contributed to a thirstier fuel burn than the factory figures...
