Extremely competitive and highly optimised deep lead keel First 45 from 2011. Enormous sail wardrobe of North 3DL’s and full cruising kit included. 100% ready to win regattas in 2016 or just go cruising.




Originally specified to a very high level including deep lead keel and both ‘Regatta’ rig package & ‘Ambition’ interior trim package, ADRIAN HOTELES has been extensively optimised for ORC competition at the very highest level with a full regatta fitout including Harken deck gear, lightweight galley, saloon table, seating, water tanks and floors.


Aside from her comprehensive race preparation and extensive North 3DL sail wardrobe, she is also an excellent cruising yacht (Beneteau designed her specifically to be well suited to fast cruising). The yacht comes complete with cruising sails including furling genoa and cruising spinnaker, and a full cruising interior which has recently been reinstalled including original forward heads, original floors, seating etc etc, all of which have been since new.


With just one owner since new and never chartered, ADRIAN HOTELES is now offered for sale as her owner wishes to go larger. With a top half result in the 2015 ORCi Worlds (ORC B) beating her Beneteau sisterships. she shows clear capabilities to continue winning in her next ownership.




The new First 45 is very much a statement boat in the way that the early ‘90s’ Farr/Pininfarina First 45 was. While the Briand hull shape is very much a modern performance design it is the simply styled light oak interior which is bold and beautiful.


On deck and in the cockpit there has been a substantial emphasis on styling and ergonomics. Hence while the halyards and lines are led aft recessed in their deck channels, there is no covering. The reasoning is that the multicoloured lines visually lengthen the coachroof. That this also reduces weight and means the eye can follow the line to what it is operating is a practical bonus.


The hull shape is relatively modest, balancing good form stability against a slender waterline beam, there is quite a fine entry with a rounded forefoot which sits just clear of the water at the dockside but sinks neatly when the boat is trimmed up.


The interior is excellent, with good levels of natural light and ventilation. You really would be happy to cruise the boat extensively in comfort, and owners will and should. Here’s a boat that you might well take a notion to spend next Spring racing in that fleet in La Trinité and then cruise Brittany, or happily spend time delivering to and from Cork Week or Scottish Series, or down to the Canaries for the ARC and the Caribbean circuit.


The main saloon is light, airy and spacious. That includes good floor area for handling sails below. The table is offset to port with a wrapround settee which has good, flat angled back supports. There are two small stools opposite which are unobtrusive but comfortable enough to sit on, and a long settee also to starboard.

The outboard-facing nav station feels more like a small office space and has plenty of stowage and good instrument mounting and electrics access. This is very much more than a simple nav area and will add appeal to those who occasionally work on board.


The galley, too, is excellent. Not being an expert on these matters I am a little suspect of having the cooker butted adjacent to the aft semibulkhead, but I stand corrected. There is a full 100 litres front-opening fridge and a deep 80 litres ice-box. There is a good, deep drawer for saucepan stowage which has an integral second drawer above it for flat plates. You quickly get the picture that this is a boat which will accommodate big meals for six or eight people.


The two symmetrical aft cabins have ample natural light and stowage, whereas the forward cabin is really a bit special with a large centreline double and lots of space, although the understated styling and chrome handles is an acquired taste. I liked the stowage under the bunk either side for bags
