Fresh Water - 1996 Wellcraft Excalibur 45 Express Cruiser

Located in Brighton, Michigan, this Excalibur has the ride of a luxury car, very comfortable and smooth. This is one well-behaved vessel, even throwing the helm from lock-to-lock in tight port and starboard turns. The boat is in great shape, well maintained, and during the offseason, the vessel is stored in a heated facility.

Excalibur is described as part performance boat and part family cruiser. Attributes include deep-V hull, well-appointed interior, ergonomic helm, roomy cockpit with wet bar.

- Two staterooms with privacy doors, queen beds sleeping four.
- Air conditioning and heat.
- A head (Vacuflush) with vanity, sink, and shower.
- Generator with sound box.
- Windlass anchor, cockpit wet bar with sink and icemaker,
- Premium AM/FM Clarion Stereo System with CD-Player, Raymarine RC435 GPS/Chartplotter, and much more.

Excalibur is powered by twin 415hp Mercruiser 502 Mag MPI Bravo Three engines.

The smooth ride is in the design; the bottom is unique in that it is rounded like a half-moon at the third of the V. Riviera says that this generates lift astern and gets the boat on plane more efficiently. It also cuts down on the tenderness inherent in traditional deep-V hulls that, once on plane, are constrained to balance on a knife-edge. Although the chines of the Excalibur are narrow by comparison with most American design boats, they expand into two 20" by 15" chine flats at the transom on either side of the drives on the underside of two bustle-like pods. These chine flats provide a great deal of lift when coming out of the hole. The Excalibur's hull carries a weight-forward bias, at least by American standards, with the helm and tankage set well forward.

This vessel will leap onto plane in four seconds. It has a tight turn radius handling like a sport boat as water passes smoothly sideways under the keel. It drives straight as an arrow, making a relaxing ride for the driver.

Construction of the hull, deck, and liner are laid up in separate molds with standard fabrics and resins. The hull sides contain Coremat. The foredeck is cored with 1" balsa. Everything else is solid glass.

When the hull is still in the mold, to prevent deformation, fiberglass stringers are glassed into the bottom and followed up with a plywood-cored cabin sole, a full collision bulkhead forward, engine-room bulkhead astern and athwartship structural members, all of them glassed into the hull and hull sides.

With the cured deck still in its mold, foam-cored fiberglass beams are glassed to its underside, athwartship, about 14" apart. When the beams are cured, a fiberglass headliner in its mold is flipped over mechanically and lowered onto these beams where it's bonded with a polyester adhesive.

Then numerous bulkheads (for hanging lockers, cabins, and overhead lockers) are glassed into the headliner and deck. All bulkheads are completely glass inside the boat all around, whether hanging from the underside of the deck or rearing up from the bottom of the hull. The finished product is so thoroughly and complexly glassed together that it is one unibody piece, as though hewed from a single chunk of fiberglass.

There aren't many high-performance cruisers around quite like the 45 Excalibur!!
