The Explorer 45 combines a traditional long-keeled hull form with a deep centre cockpit and low fixed windscreen. She is cutter ketch rigged with a self-tacking boomed staysail on the mainmast.

Designed by Stan Huntingford from Vancouver in Canada, and built in the late 1970s in Taiwan, the hull of the Explorer 45 is solid GRP, heavily laid up with woven rovings. The interior is fitted out to a high standard in teak, and has a large aft cabin accessible from the saloon via a low passageway.

The aft cabin and en-suite aft heads are accessed from the saloon, via a low passageway on the starboard side, with a large sail locker outboard. This passageway also gives access to the engine room.

The Volvo main engine has access from both sides, and an access hatch above in the cockpit sole.

As well as a double berth and seating, the aft cabin has a single seaberth, with stowage outboard behind the blue canvas cover.
