New Model: Cruisers 45 Cantius

The third model in the Cantius series range by Cruisers, the 45.  In this latest fully enclosed hard top model Cruisers follow the looks of the 41 along with the theme of all the Cantius, with a living all on the main deck, and a lower area dedicated to the cabins.  One of a favourite feature of the 45 will surely be the astern galley in the main deck saloon, serving easily both cockpit and interior saloon in a sociable environment.  Another nice touch is the aft bench settee which can become a sun-pad, an aft looking mezzanine, or a lounger type seat.  Two cabins both with en-suite shower head are featured below.  The master cabin is located to fore, and a three berth guest room is amidships. The amidships guest cabin features also some nice leg room, which is not something to discount nowadays, and a cool entertainment centre with a movable settee, and relax chaise lounge to port.  Power is standard twin Volvo 370hp, or optional 435hp units with IPS pod drives.  The standard power is a bit a slow giving a top speed of 27 knots, but 34 knots is estimated with the larger units.
