I was wondering what the differences were between a Commander 45 and 47, and is either one better, the good the bad, the ugly. Why would you want either one over the other?
I believe it is noted on the Back Cover of the 1960's Commander Brochure's
Is there any articles or documents available to read about the 3 part hull construction?

The 47 is a 3 piece hull, where the 45 is a single mold. The claim to fame in the 3 piece hulls were that they were completely self supporting. None of the bulkheads were of a structural nature. Not so sure of that with the 45.
All good points. The 45 is probably preferred because of the 871s, more modern systems and a way better master stateroom. I know some people need a 3 stateroom layout. However, there is nothing worse than the guest stateroom right next to the master stateroom. Even if you choose a 47, the 2 stateroom layout is far superior. It's a yacht. You are the owner. Your comfort must come first! Your guests will be just fine.
You will be pleased with either model choice, but only if buy the nicest best maintained one out there.
