Project: XL Marine 45

XL Marine presents a project for a new 45 model, the fifth of this young six years old company, but with a lot of experience in its management and workers.  This new XL Marine is based on the lines of the first 2006 created XL Marine the 43 with an extension in hull length of sixty centimeters, and lots of more accommodation inside.  Like the current entry level 43, the 45 will offer a variation of various internal layouts and is based on very traditional lines, flush deck both on top and in the cockpit, and single floor also for the interior.  A hard top which does not take anything from the classic line of the 45 is shown in all renderings so far provided meaning this to be standard, but I am sure if one desires a full open version the Rome based XL Marine will provide.  The South Rome company has shown high flexibility and large customisation to all the models launched so far in both the 43 and 51 sizes.  Three total internal layouts are so far shown offering diverse plans to suite different owners needs.  As shown above with three guest cabins, two heads and galley.  Two cabins, two heads, one crew cabin with head and galley.  Two cabins, two heads, C-shaped sofa, and galley hear moving to port side.  In all layouts the owners room is to fore and its shower head is en suite.  The cockpit keeps the traditional simple pure and Mediterranean layout with sun pad aft which can transform to an extra C-shaped dinette, C-shape dinette to starboard, wet bar, and helm station located to port.  Power is standard Cummins 550hp or optional 600 with top speeds estimates being in the region of 37 knots.
