New Model: XL Marine 45

Founded in 2006, XL Marine has had a good success with its 43 and 51 models, with the South Rome Italian boat builder expanding on this by launching its 45.  As information goes only one 45 has been build launched in 2014.  So why we are presenting this now?  Because pictures have been very hard to come by.  The XL 45 is based on the 43 hull extended in length and with this coming out with a totally different internal layout and bigger engines.  It is as XL Marine always stated an evolution of the species in this case of the 43 model.  Indeed thanks to this extension XL Marine 45 offers a spacious lower deck with options for a three double cabins two bathrooms and a galley, two double cabins two bathrooms plus one crew cabin with private bath and a galley, and last a more traditional two double cabin two bathrooms plus C-shaped dinette and galley.  The XL Marine 45 is also offered with a hard top option with the looks of this similar to what is offered on the 51.  XL Marine 45 is powered by twin Cummins 550hp which give top speeds up to forty knots.
