New Model: Tornado 45s

In 2022 and during the Venice boat show held in May, Tornado presented the new 45s model.  An evolution of the 45 model launched in 1995 to a design of Tom Fexas, and which subsequently two years later won the Venice-Montecarlo 1997 in her class.  The 45 has  been a long success for Tornado thanks to its economic to run standard stern drive propulsion and clean timeless Fexas design.  Recognizable by the higher wrap around extended further aft windshield the new Tornado 45s is also redesigned in the cockpit deck.  Now becoming more comfortable and functional with a passageway to starboard and the aft sun-pad and C-shaped dinette resting to port side.  The old Tornado 45 had an island sun-pad aft wrapped around in a fiberglass moulding which used the full beam, a forward facing bench settee and helm station co-pilot settees forward. The cabin of the Tornado 45s has also been reworked and now features two cabins; an aft cabin sleeping two, and a master double berth forward.  The new Tornado 45s is powered by Volvo 380hp with stern drive propulsion as standard delivering a top speed up to forty knots.  Other engine options include larger 440hp Volvo with the same stern drive set up, or FPT 570hp with surface drives which give an estimated fifty knots top speed.
