Designed by Holman and Pye to replace their legendary Oyster 435, the 45 did so with aplomb. With greatly enhanced interior volume, the 45 feels a lot more spacious, whilst retaining the Oyster rugged offshore trademarks of single-skin hull construction, keel-stepped mast, and full-length rudder skeg.
Perhaps the best feature of the 45 is the full width saloon, which has a lovely light and open feel due to the large Oyster deck saloon windows, two of which open to provide superb ventilation. The straight saloon seating provides two sea berths. When opened up, the wonderful saloon table connects the two settees, and enables a large number of guests to be entertained. The aft end of the saloon is open to the galley, so the cook is also fully involved socially.
Just aft of the navigation station is a large walk-in locker, which can also be accessed from the cockpit. A hugely popular feature among 45 owners, this space can be used for storage, a workshop and location for an aft holding tank.
A great performer under sail, the 45 nonetheless has a gentle motion offshore thanks to her balanced hull, fine entry, and the stiffness provided by her external lead bulb keel. The 45 is a proven circumnavigator, long distance blue water cruiser and live-aboard, but due to her compact overall length she is also a great local family cruiser, as she is simplicity itself to handle.
‘Tusitala’ has the unusual two cabin layout, sleeping four in two cabins. She offers two spacious private double cabins, each with en suite head and shower compartment. This layout is ideally suited to two couples, and perhaps reflects how most people sail, rather than how they think they sail! Of course, she still has two seaberths on her saloon seating. Her handcrafted joinery is in the popular light oak, giving a bright and airy feel below decks. Her simple sloop rig with in-mast furling mainsail and furling genoa, all handled from the cockpit, make her easy to sail for the shorthanded crew. Tusitala has been lightly used by her current owner and has been well cared for
