Waterline 46

The Waterline 46 is a head turner at every port. Many of these boats are sailing the world’s oceans, including a number of circumnavigations. This size yacht is perfect for carrying all the amenities with you in comfort.

Excellent performance can be expected in all conditions, on either offshore passages or day trips between anchorages. Under sail the balanced rudder on a partial skeg assures finger tip control.

The accommodations of the 46 are truly functional with immediate access to the head and nav station from the companionway. The galley is central to both the cockpit and the spacious salon. Feature packed inside and out, theWaterline 46 is a performance driven design built for sailors by sailors.
