The superstructure, like that of the Sportsman 44, spans a large percentage of the boat’s overall length, allowing the interior to have all the headroom it needs for comfortable habitation forward of the salon, as well as in it. This length also decreases our perception of the yacht’s height. More important to the aesthetics of the 45 SF, though, is the way the rake of the trunk cabin’s front fascia and that of the main deckhouse visually lower the superstructure’s profile. The three tiers — trunk cabin, deckhouse and flying bridge — give the yacht a sculpted appearance. Identical degrees of rake at the front of the flying bridge and in the design of the tower keep this relatively tall structure from dominating the overall design.
