Commissioned by well known and respected Auckland sailor Don Pollock, Ace took shape over two and a half years with significant design and construction input by her owner. With a large interior volume for a 45 footer, Ace is an extremely comfortable and well behaved cruising yacht. The solid dodger provides good shelter from the elements while the roller furling main and self tacking jib mean the boat can be confidently sailed single handed in relative comfort.
Ace is built in strip planked cedar core, with a carbon rig and Harken deck gear. She also features a full carbon rudder and dinghy davits, making her a reasonably lightweight and well performed boat on and off the wind.
The interior décor on Ace was designed by her owner.
