Designed by Holman and Pye to replace their legendary Oyster 435, the 45 did so with aplomb. With greatly enhanced interior volume, the 45 feels a lot more spacious, whilst retaining the Oyster rugged offshore trademarks of single-skin hull construction, keel-stepped mast, and full-length rudder skeg.
Degree of Latitude is in her third ownership, and remains a great example. Her popular three cabin layout sleeps six in two doubles and one twin cabin, with two further sea berths possible in the saloon. Her hand-crafted joinery is in teak, giving a cosy and traditional feel below decks. Her rig is a simple sloop with in-mast furling, so easy to handle from the cockpit.
Degree of Latitude benefits from substantial investment and upgrades in the last five years.
