Additional Information

Comments from Warren R. Luhrs describe this fine yacht best: “The conception was to design a fast sleek yacht that was comfortable, well thought out and appointed. From the experiences we gained from our successful 40’, we put the program to work. Concentrating on a spacious boat designed to sleep two couples in privacy with a well thought out deck and cockpit arrangement. The result was most pleasing. From the ease she has in a seaway, to the balanced helm, to the sleek soft lines of her cabin and cockpit. She offers the style and grace of a larger yacht with the speed and performance of a custom built boat. I am pleased with every aspect of the Legend 45 and know you will be too once you’ve walked her decks and sailed her.”



When you go below on this boat you instantly get the feeling of comfort and surprising elegance that was far ahead of her time, normally reserved for more modern yachts. She has 6’8" headroom, rich new, ultra-leather upholstery, a teak & holly sole, custom counter tops, and numerous ports and opening hatches giving her an abundance of natural light and ventilation. The design incorporates a two staterooms and two head layout that affords excellent separation and privacy. There are also three additional berths in the main salon for a total of seven berths
