Moving forward, the galley is to starboard and is u-shaped with plenty of handholds. To port you find more galley storage and the wall-mounted Fab-All Balmar 120 - diesel fired cabin heater.
Forward of the galley is the convertible dinette and to port are upper and lower berths. The lower converts to seating and the upper folds away when not in use.

This Bruce Roberts 45 is a true offshore vessel with a proven record of cruising.
This Bruce Roberts design has a modern long fin keel extending into a full-structured skeg with an inboard hung rudder attached. The bow is raked while the stern is reversed with a counter overhang and a fitted swim ladder. There is an open foredeck with wide side decks that lead aft past a low-profile trunk cabin amidships. and a raised deck salon to an aft cockpit.
A Fleming self steering unit is included. The lifelines have a solid stainless steel upper rail with intermediate cable. The teak deck overlays were removed and replaced with fiberglass nonskid.
The interior is no nonsense -- two large quarter berths, upper and lower berths in the saloon plus a convertible dinette. There are also two single berths in the forward stateroom. A very large nav station is located just inside the companionway. A very workable galley is just forward of the nav station.
The Westerbeke 70 HP engine is located under floor in the nav area. All flooring comes up for easy access.
