Palm Beach style helm of the Rampage 45 Convertible offers single-lever controls for precise handling when backing down on billfish. With an angled electronics array to starboard, both captain and mate have direct lines of sight to large instruments. The ample bridge overhang provides plenty of cockpit shade but still gives the captain a view of rod tips fished from the chair below. The 130-square-foot aft cockpit features a bait rigging station, livewell, bait freezer, and two double-hinged floor fish boxes. The cockpit sole is reinforced with a one-half inch aluminum plate for chair installation. Wide side decks with diamond non-skid surfaces make getting forward safe and easy.
The L-shaped settee houses rod storage under the port section. The galley features pullout drawer refrigeration and freezer, convection microwave and two-burner stove. The full home entertainment center and plenty of extra seating at the dinette make the 45 salon the place to trade fish stories. The island berth in the forward stateroom has easy-access drawers under the queen berth and large bulk storage forward. To starboard is a cedar-lined hanging locker with another locker to port when it doesn`t house the optional washer dryer unit.
The private forward stateroom head is accessible only from the stateroom for complete privacy. The shower area is spacious for a 45-foot convertible and even has a built-in seat. The day head on the 45 is directly athwartships of the second stateroom and has its own enclosed shower area to keep the head dry and cleanup to a minimum. The walk-in engine room has a cockpit door entry and plenty of room all around the engines.
