The Lightwave 45′ Maestro – Sailing Catamaran
Released in 2014, the Lightwave 45 Maestro is a remarkable blue water cruiser featuring a full width, full height, master cabin with an island queen bed on the bridgedeck level, the same level as the saloon, galley and cockpit. The Master suite has its own full ensuite, office and walk in wardrobe. This unique layout is accompanied with 2 additional cabins, guest bathroom, and laundry.
A WORLD FIRST
Achieving a layout option that up to now has been deemed impossible in the sub 50ft cat market, the Lightwave team have created a first – a 45ft catamaran with a full width, full height master cabin with island queen bed, on the bridgedeck level, without compromising the Lightwave 45’s great looks or sailing performance.
The Lightwave 45 Maestro is simply a layout variation of the standard Lightwave 45 Grande model. The Maestro’s hulls and bridgedeck, aft cockpit, helm station and hardtop, davits, engine rooms and foredecks are all shared with the popular Lightwave 45 Grande model. To create the floor space on the standard bridgedeck, the design was re-engineered with the mast bulkhead and rig 0.5m aft of its original position and the coach roof extended forward to create the headroom required. The saloon is extended laterally to maximise the space and accommodate the large galley up.
SLEEK, ELEGANT STYLING
Catering for hot humid climates, extensive vision and air flow is created throughout the interior of the stepped deck design, with large toughened glass windows accompanied by plenty of opening hatches. There is full headroom throughout (6’6”), creating large, open spaces. This expertly crafted vessel is complimented by the characteristic Lightwave super yacht finish, which includes the use of two pack paint on internal walls, complimented by timber accents throughout.
The Maestro model provides a very functional saloon with seating for six. The seamless flow into the completely protected vast cockpit area which provides additional alfresco dining space at the large cockpit table, leaves the saloon area as an optional lounge area. The saloon table folds, swivels and lowers to be a coffee table. The Galley up is generously equipped with storage, ample bench space, refrigeration and appliances, with everything close to hand. With only a few small steps from the bridedeck, additional refrigeration and storage is available for long term cruising provisions. The starboard aft cabin is a multi use laundry area, featuring a converting bunk space. The well ventilated bathrooms offer separated wet and dry areas, and plenty of room for your washing machine, drier, or linen cupboard. The Guest Aft cabin features an island bed that is only 600mm off the sole.
Viewing windows are incorporated into the structure of the hull in the aft cabins, just above bed level, adding a special ambience to the bright and airy cabins. Specially designed for long term ocean cruising, other features include a large foredeck locker, to store dive gear, fenders and lines, and additional items such as sails, keeping your deck free from further obstructions. An optional feature of this area is an on-deck spa/plunge pool. Clever, easy sail controls lead to the cockpit, with all lines and halyards coming back via the ‘covered line channels’, leaving the decks uncluttered and obstacle free for extra safety and comfort.
The enormous external engine rooms offer ease of servicing and plenty of space for a water maker and genset. There are no fumes inside boat, with a sealed bulkhead between these areas. The innovative design of the electrical system, incorporates superior energy efficient functions and comprehensive user friendly features that surpass industry standards. The expansive sheltered cockpit area with outdoor protected seating for twelve, includes Lightwave’s signature Stepped Steering Station; an outdoor dining and lounging area; under seat stowage; and 120L of refrigeration (fridge/freezer, ind. or comb.) under the helm seat, with additional unit available in cockpit area (complimenting the 140L-200L fridge/freezer available in galley). The broad transoms feature large ‘side access’ swimming/fishing platforms and makes dinghy access easy, with davits mounted on the transom, providing dinghy storage and an optional solar panel mounting area.
