Description: Thomascraft 4500 Flybridge No compromises on this self sufficient cruiser
The captial cost of boat ownership is generally no problem for purchasers new to boating, it's the ongoing maintenance bills that often trip you up. My best advice is that, if you're stretching yourself to buy the boat of your dreams to begin with, then look for one that will not cost you a fortune to run but will still offer the amenities and size you want. If you fit into this category then you should consider this beautiful Thomascraft!

In an age when everyone is thinking about global warming and leaving minimal impact on the environment, it makes sense that these thoughts extend to our boating. This luxury Thomascraft 45 was ahead of her time. Designed with an economical single Caterpillar diesel engine as opposed to twins, gas appliances as opposed to electric and highly efficient solar panels on the roof as opposed to relying on a generator, 'Overdhu' is almost totally self sufficient. In fact she survives 'off the grid' with fridges running and not even plugged into shore power when in her berth.

Just one engine to service rather than the three you find on most boats of this size.

So where is the compromise? Well, after spending a couple of hours recently cruising around off Fremantle, I'm struggling to find one. Even her water capacity is large enough last a week - 1500L. This is almost three times the capacity of your average flybridge cruiser so guest what, no watermaker to maintain either!

The rear deck on the 45 is proportionately second to none in her category. Large enough to host a dance party! No teak either, just low maintenance non slip fibreglass - just wash it off!

Three opening saloon doors enable the inside living area to spill out onto the deck, just one small step up into the cabin.

Inside you will find a brand new lounge to port which converts to a double bed in seconds and a leather lounge and seat to starboard, all in top condition. A mezzanine galley is uncluttered and modern with upright fridge/freezer, new benchtops and 'as new' appliances. Plenty of under bench storage.

Downstairs to the forward accommodation where you have a bathroom to port with separate shower stall, master stateroom to starboard with double bed and tournament bunks in the forepeak. Upholstery and mattresses all in perfect condition.

Up on the bridge she is neat as a pin. Central helm station with two bucket seat helm chairs, power steering, Raymarine Multifunction display, auto pilot and Icom VHF Marine radio all at your fingertips.

A Sidepower bow thruster means you can manoeuvre her as well as a twin engine boat.

Cruise speed is an effortless and economical 16 to 17 knots with a maximum of 20 knots.

Did I mention the engine room? The Thomascraft 45 is known for her wide beam which means the engine room is large enough to easily accommodate a twin installation. With just the one engine in 'Overdhu', there is plenty of room to get around and to access all parts of her Caterpillar drive and all other systems.

Engine last serviced March 2019.
