|The Perry 45 Motor Sailer|
Leading Australian multihull builder, Perry Catamarans, has delivered the best of both worlds in boating with the release of the magnificent Perry MS-45 motor sailer. This vessel combines the joy of sailing when the breeze is favourable with the surety of performance when the breeze is just not there, or its blowing in the wrong direction and you need to meet a schedule. As the name suggests, the new concept will see a single vessel boasting the Five Star comfort and grand performance for which Perry is famous across its entire range of sailing and power catamarans.
Perry MS-45 owners will enjoy the leisurely pace of cruising under a spread or sail, or be able to make haste under power at up to 20 knots and enjoy a range under power only, up to 2,000 nautical miles when cruising at 9 knots. The experience will come with additional bonuses, like the stable, on-the-level cruising that a Perry catamaran always offers, and low fuel consumption thanks to an efficient hull shape.
The 18-metre long Perry MS-45 is a casual lifestyle yacht that will incorporate all the wonderful features found on the highly successful Perry 43 sailing catamaran, and the 44.5ft flybridge Perry motor yacht. The massive internal volume will make this vessel comparable in size to an 60ft monohull, while the gleaming timberwork and plush furnishings throughout the superbly appointed interior will take the owner and guests into a world of luxury cruising seldom seen on a production yacht.
Move from the cockpit into the main saloon and you are enveloped by another environment; one where supreme comfort, functionality and the highest standard or workmanship is evident. Everything is sensibly proportioned and perfectly presented for a yacht of this size.
The main saloon and dining area is conducive to relaxation, the sleeping accommodations is large and comfortable and the gallery efficient. The Perry 45 starts with a base model and allows you to put your own signature on your yacht by choosing options and features to better suit your needs.
That’s the Perry personal touch. Like all other aspects of the Perry 45, the sail plan, rig and sail handling equipment leave no doubt that this design has been produced by experienced ocean sailors who know exactly what is needed to make sure every operation when at sea can be undertaken safely and with ease.
The styling is sleek and dynamic, and the well balanced proportions of the composite glass fibre hulls translate to this being an outstanding yacht in every sense. Qualified naval architects approved the entire design before the 45 went into production. The Perry 45 offers a luxurious lifestyle. It is your escape. It’s your own island resort — with no fixed addressed.
