The Northshore 46 has long proved its worth as a well found, fast and safe offshore cruising yacht. This 1985 launched NS46 has cruised the world and is the first of the model to have circumnavigated the globe. Equipped with everything you could want for such a voyage, she circled the globe for 9 years and visited dozens of countries. Since her return she has been fitted with new rigging and has had a new engine installed so she is absolutely ready to sail away on new adventures.

Her comfortable and spacious teak trimmed interior can sleep up to 8 and features enormous storage capacity. She has a well equipped galley, an excellent chart table and nav area and a roomy saloon that can seat 8 around the central table on leather upholstered settees. The good sized bathroom has a marine toilet, wash basin and hot & cold shower. Television and quality stereo provide for great entertainment or you can just lounge on the cockpit cushions and read a book.

This Aus registered yacht has been set up for short handed sailing with an easily managed cutter rig and quality deck equipment. She has a great turn of speed and her shoal draft with daggerboard keel configuration allows her to sail in shallower waterways than a deep keel boat. Her comprehensive inventory includes Furler, Electric halyard winch, Autopilot, Radar, AIS, GPS with chart plotter, Watermaker, two Fridges and Freezer, Hot water, Dinghy with outboard on stern davits, Solar charging, Electric anchor windlass with Sarca anchor, Heart power management system, Full covers against wind, waves, rain and sun, a vast array of engine, mechanical and sailing equipment spares and so much more. She has a fully documented record of upgrades along with detailed ongoing maintenance instructions.

If you are serious about comfortable blue water or coastal cruising in an easily handled well equipped yacht then you really should inspect this yacht.
