The Impression 45 is a through-and-through modern cruiser, from its fold-down swim platform at the transom to the deck saloon-style cabin top, lounging cushions forward of the mast, and beefy anchor roller and windlass at the bow. The Impression 45 is well equipped with features that would make life afloat all the more comfortable: little things like teak cup holders at the end of the cockpit bench seats, and a sturdy stainless handrail that doubles as a fiddle around the top of the teak drop-leaf cockpit table.
Every detail ensures an enjoyable and safe journey, from the spacious open cockpit with its large seating area all around the cockpit table, to the wide passage way forward where plenty of space for sunbathing awaits. Twin wheels offer excellent steering positions for the helmsman while the wide transom ensures easy access to the bathing platform which is available in two sizes, the larger of which closes the cockpit fully during sailing.
The Impression 45 offers a bright and airy interior thanks to it’s hull and Deck Saloon windows. The saloon features a large U-shaped settee to port and an additional settee to starboard enabling her to seat far more crew comfortably around the table then any other ordinary yacht in her class. In all options the Impression 45 comes with a fixed chart table with seat and a spacious L-shaped galley with the front opening refrigerator. Interior layouts include two to four cabin options all with two heads compartments, one of which has a separate shower.
Elan hulls are vacuum-infused. In the Impression line, the sides of the hull are foam-cored from the waterline up and solid glass below and where loads are carried. A layer of vinylester resin is added to the layup to deter blistering. Decks are hand-laid, with a balsa core for thermal and sound insulation.
Impression 45 is in every way an impressive sailing yacht. Developed to satisfy the needs of all family members, it will be a joy for cruising vacations, whether it is the Mediterranean, the Caribbean or on a blue water crossing. Designed to ensure maximum comfort the Impression 45 is a dream to sail as well. Performance has always been a factor with all Impression Yachts and the Impression 45 will not fail to impress.
