Botin Carkeek / Premier 45

The Premier 45 has been designed to be a high performance ‘short handed’ cruiser. The joint collaboration between Botin Carkeek Yacht Design and Premier Composite Technologies (Dubai) has successfully combined the features of a true racing pedigree yacht with all the practicalities required for a short handed cruising yacht.

The Premier 45 hull is built in carbon/glass and foam core, which allows a very high ballast ratio. It features a lifting keel (1.75 to 2.75m draft) and a modern, stylish, yet comfortable interior. Generous upwind and downwind sail areas provide the necessary horsepower for a fast ride, whilst low displacement and wetted surface area grants reduced hull resistance at all sailing conditions. The appendages’ foil section, size and position have been carefully designed to have a good feel at the helm, and to maintain excellent low speed maneuverability and swift tacking.

Exterior and interior design have been carefully studied, designing innovative shapes and applying modern materials and textures to achieve a modern and stylish look.
