Broker’s Comments

My favourite motor yacht, period.

Beautifully built by real craftsman; engineered to an exceptionally competent level and wonderfully competent at sea. Bewitching looks, commodious accommodation, epic handling and a sense of soul that very few modern yachts can offer. In short, she should be on your Christmas list.

ARLETTE has done what a passage-making motor-yacht should – she has carried her owners and crew to adventures completely outside of the flightpath of the regular visitor. She has cruised to the hills of the Lofoten Islands, danced around the Skerries of Trondheim, swum in the Arctic waters around Henningsvær, instilling great confidence in her crew to spend three summers doing the Norwegian fjords, islands and ending up in Western Sweden at the delightful town of Henan.

As well as being a trusted and faithful servant during over seven years of her present tenure, she has been kept in first-class order – and some of that refit/servicing information is set out below in these details.

Her previous experienced owner ordered her direct from Dale Nelson in Pembrokeshire, and carefully specified her with the uprated Yanmar 720HP diesels, so that they are always well within their ratings for a wide range of cruising speeds, including a top out of around 34 knots if ever called for. She has the sought-after and more popular two cabin layout (both are en-suite), with a portside twin and a double in the bows, leading aft to a fully fitted galley and then up to the main saloon.

She is finished in the beautifully natural and light European Oak timber, and her locker doors are trimmed with Rattan infills for best ventilation. In addition to an exceptionally good main helm position (with vast adjustment possibilities in terms of seating thanks to her motorized seats and bulkhead) the saloon deck has a dedicated navigators position to starboard, and then a large U-shaped seating area as you move your way aft. It is a lovely space, with panoramic views through her windows, to take in the scenery whilst remaining warm, dry and cosy.

Her stable door opens up into a well-protected aft cockpit, with an intelligent design to give you maximum seating area, for maximum storage volume. There is a cockpit table, very good storage both in lockers, and also in her lazarette spaces – allowing both easy access for maintenance of her stern gear and generator, and a generous amount of hiding space for all the required on-board add-ons for extended cruising and offshore passage-making.

Then there are those looks. They are sensational, with underwater hull lines tweaked from the board of TT Designs and Arthur Mursell (the wineglass-sectioned Nelson hull is perhaps the most fabled of commercially-derived offshore powerboats), with a stunning profile of her wheelhouse (forward eyebrows included) and a gentle sheerline falling away aft to those pronounced tumblehomes framing her stern quarters. Perfection perhaps?

Either way – its’ your decision, but these 45s are as good as it gets.

Press Comments

Motor Boat & Yachting:

“It only takes a few moments of gazing across the pontoons at Dale’s new Classic 45 to suss out what this lovely boat is all about: it’s a gentleman’s plaything, a whimsy, an object of beauty to be admired more than used in earnest. And there’s surely nothing wrong with that notion. Even more than second homes and flash cars, our boats are indulgences – probably the greatest extravagances of all. Why should we need any justification other than aesthetics for spending your hard-earned on a whimsy?

Step on board though, and that initial presumption begins to crumble. The 45 seems to be extraordinarily sturdily built for a gentleman’s plaything. Not only is the build quality exceptional, but the engineering installation is clearly designed by people who have ventured far offshore and have prepared the 45 for the rigours of life at sea. Further evidence of this comes in the form of the 45’s RCD rating: it is one of the very few boats built to Category A, despite its Sunday-on-the-river looks.”
