WATERLINE 46

OVERVIEW

The Waterline 46 is our most popular model. Many versions of this boat are sailing the world's oceans, including a number of circumnavigators. This size is perfect for carrying all the amenities with you in comfort. All-around visibility from inside the raised aft house is a feature. The variations of the interior can easily accommodate a raised salon.

The 46 is an excellent performer in all conditions. Under sail, the balanced rudder on a partial skeg effectively reduces autopilot work and enhances the joy of steering for the crew. The proven Leisurefurl main in-boom furling system is controlled by an electric winch in the cockpit and all other control lines are led aft for safe sail handling.

INTERIOR DESIGN

The accommodation of the Waterline 46 is truly functional. Access to the head and nav station is immediate from the companionway, and the galley becomes central to both the salon and cockpit. Owners of the 46 feel the galley is one of the best features.

Designed to be safe and secure underway the galley offers tremendous storage and working counter space as well as good visibility to the outside.

The aft cabin can be a great sea-berth or comfortable guest accommodation. The equipment room aft of the head offers easy access to the steering/autopilot system. Watermakers, heaters, washer/dryers, scuba compressors, refrigeration compressors and a workbench with tool storage is all possible in this area.

The salon is spacious for living aboard and the forward owners' stateroom with a centerline queen-size berth is comfortable even at sea
