Tough and seaworthy design

Whilst compact and light enough to be towed behind a family car on an unbraked trailer, the 452 is no lightweight when it comes to seakeeping. The Nelson influenced hull design gives sure footed handling in testing conditions.

Pronounced V in the flared forward sections ensures a soft ride and plenty of beam aft combined with moderate V make for stability under way and at rest. The monocoque deck is bonded to the hull and backbone resulting in a rigid high strength to weight structure.

There is a solid and practical steering console with stowage under and plenty of space for electronics. The aft seats provide stowage for two fuel tanks and between them there is a neat semi concealed plinth for the battery. Launching and recovery is simple and hassle free, made even easier with the optional Orkney multi roller trailer.
