The perfect balance of performance and comfort for the ultimate in passage making safety.
Experienced sailors know the added safety that comes with good sailing performance. The ability to sail off a lee shore, shorten a passage to within the available weather window, or safely maneuver through seas are critical safety concerns that should not be overlooked.
Equally important is having the comfort required to avoid fatigue when heading offshore. A dry and comfortable cockpit, good visibility, and a forgiving motion are essential for a safe and enjoyable passage.
When you purchase your new Outbound 46 you’ll be enjoying an interior that has been refined over 14 years, often by owner’s suggestions. The most drastic change came in 2012 when the lazarette was moved to the starboard side and the quarter cabin to port behind the galley, allowing space for both a larger head with stall shower and a larger chart table.
New for 2013 was moving the forward sink into the forward cabin itself. This allowed us to move the holding tank into the head space and raise it allowing for gravity feed discharge, eliminating pumps and hose that were previously under the dinette seats, adding, even more, storage in the salon.

Outbounds unique semi-raised salon eliminates the dark cave feeling you have on most sailboats without losing the close interaction of the cockpit, galley, and salon … giving the interior of the Outbound a “family room” feel that is lost on many of the deck salons we are seeing today. Raising the house a few inches provides plenty of natural light below, space for over 350 gallons of tank capacity in the middle of the boat, and a safe three step companionway.
