Reliant Yachts | 45 Express
Our enterprise of designing, marketing and building the world’s finest power and sailing yachts has evolved from a passion for building superior offshore yachts, tempered by over forty years of boat building experience and thousands of offshore miles.

The Reliant Yachts 45 Express is the perfect family boat.  Easy to handle for a couple with the space for a family, the 45 has several accommodation options. As with all Reliant express yachts, the pilot house is available as an “open” express with the aft bulkhead completely open to the cockpit, or as a “saloon” express, with curved windows aft and a centerline locking door between the saloon and the aft cockpit.  Starting with the 45, the express is also available with a flybridge.
Accommodations include a centerline queen stateroom forward, and a guest cabin with choice of over/under berths, full-size berth (accommodates a couple), or convertible settee.
The modified deep-V hulls have been designed to cut through heavy seas with confidence and comfort. Beyond their superior handling characteristics, Reliant hulls are designed with substantial chines to provide enhanced stability in a seaway. When cruising the hull trim is noticeably more level than other performance boats where vision over the bow is impaired at speed. The 43 is powered by Yanmar 8LV-370 8 cylinder turbo engines with a very comfortable 24-knot cruise, and a high end of 30 knots. Standard equipment includes bow thruster, cruise control, genset, reverse cycle air conditioning, large flatscreen GPS chart/plotter with radar, 8 speaker stereo with bluetooth link (for your iPhone or Android), flatscreen TV and more.
Beautifully proportioned and expertly crafted, all Reliant Yacht’s Express Yachts have a special appeal to the discerning yachtsman who demands performance, has an eye for classic aesthetics and appreciates the straight forward functionality of deck and arrangement plans that only come with decades of yachting experience.
