One of America’s premier sailboat builders – Morris Yachts has just unveiled their new M46 Modern Classic at the 2013 Maine Boat Builders Show in Portland. Never-before-seen innovations in a classic boat of her size range, the M46 has been engineered to gain maximum sailing performance and interior accommodation space. It’s more than just a boat – it’s rather lifestyle.
Designed in partnership with Sparkman & Stephens, this unique boat in contrast of Morris’ internationally-recognized M-Series includes a longer waterline, enhanced tumblehome and a more traditional bow with appendages that will guarantee an uncompromised sailing performance in a variety of conditions. Also, for the first time on any M-Series yacht, her fold-down transom steps provide excellent access to the water from the cockpit. Plus all these features come alongside the added value of standard teak decks.
The arrangement of the M46 cabin is unique for a boat of her size. The M46 features two separate cabins with ensuite heads. The generous owner’s stateroom also includes a separate shower and dramatic lighting provided from large flush-mounted hatches above.
The stunning main saloon is designed to provide extensive natural light and exceptional views outside from her four-window cabin top and above hatches. The dinette seats six, and can be converted into a double-berth for additional sleeping capacity. The “U” shaped galley provides all the amenities expected on a cruising boat including refrigeration, freezer, microwave, gimballed stove and ample counter space. The full navigation station also doubles as a home office with integrated wireless capabilities.
Although the M46 sailing yacht is luxurious, but not big enough to qualify as a superyacht, she is a true American original and built for performance, luxurious cruising and a versatile sailing lifestyle.
