Alexander Marine are pleased to have SOLD this 1991 Riviera 46 Passagemaker.
This vessel was presented in superb condition, and importantly, had undergone significant refit works over the life of the vessel. In 2009 she underwent a complete engine room refurbishment including brand new Cummins 550hp main engines, a brand new Onan 11kva generator, and new fuel and water tanks just to name a few of the upgrades - these significant improvements provided her next owner decades of reliable, hassle-free, and enjoyable boating! These are big-ticket items that many contemplate but few have the time and patience to execute - that was of significant value and importance to the buyer when considering this vessel.
The 46 Passagemaker was a perfect family cruising boat. Access to the vessel was via a low maintenance non-skid finished GRP swim platform, She boated a large teak cockpit, complete with teak capping rails and padded coaming cushions. A top-opening cockpit drinks fridge kept guests hydrated, while an S/S gunwale mounted Cookout BBQ was on-hand for feeding the troops. The cockpit got significant sun protection thanks to her cockpit awning which was perfect for the climate. Two steps up from the cockpit, via a glass and aluminum sliding door, you entered the spacious and light-filled saloon area. Opening side windows assisted ventilation, otherwise, you could opt to turn on the air conditioning. The saloon seating configuration was a huge U-shaped settee to port, plus an in-line settee to starboard.
Forward of the saloon to port, set down two steps, was the spacious L-shaped galley complete with everything you needed to feed the crew.
In terms of accommodation, the master cabin was to starboard and had its own head. The forward cabin in this particular 46 Passagemaker was configured as a double berth arrangement - the forward cabin used the 2nd head which featured a separate shower stall. The lower accommodation and heads featured overhead hatches, and likewise, opened ports in both cabins for natural ventilation and light.
Access up-to-the foredeck was made safer courtesy of her walk-around side decks (which was a feature unique to the Passagemaker models) before you stepped up onto the foredeck. On the bow, her tender was stowed and deployed via a 500kg Davco crane. Her anchoring equipment included an S/S Bruce Anchor for a quality night's sleep.
Her flybridge featured brand new four-sided clears. The helm station was positioned aft and was well suited to fishing as the skipper had a great view astern. Docking was assisted by way of a bow thruster. She was equipped with late-model Simrad MFD electronics including radar. Two helm seats ensured the captain wouldn't get lonely, and there was plenty of seating in front of the helm station for additional guests wishing to enjoy the great views from up top.
She had recently been antifouled and was blue water ready.
