Alexander Marine are pleased to have SOLD this 1990 Riviera 46 Passagemaker.
This vessel was presented in great condition, and importantly, had undergone massive upgrades including a complete engine room refurbishment that was undertaken by the previous owner - these works included brand new commercially rated Volvo main engines, brand new Westerbeke generator & new water tanks to name just a handful of upgrades - which provided her next owner a few 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 is of significant value and importance to an astute 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, with the option for a new owner to install a 2nd tender on snap davits (the snap davit hardware was included with the vessel). A S/S stern rail had also been installed for added safety and could also come in handy for the keen fishermen. She boasted a large cockpit, complete with varnished teak capping rails, with the floor finish being a practical removable woven vinyl flooring material. A top-opening cockpit drinks fridge kept guests hydrated, while an S/S gunwale mounted Sovereign BBQ was on-hand for feeding the troops. The cockpit got significant sun protection thanks to her ¾ cockpit awning which was perfect for our 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. Roll down side curtains were used to protect the interior from direct sunlight when the boat was not in use, and as an ingenious option, they could also be attached to the side rails at the bottom when on anchor to provide shade and rain protection while still permitting natural light and ventilation. The interior fabric choices were all light colours made for a "beach house" feel. The saloon seating configuration was a huge U-shaped settee to port, plus an in-line settee to starboard.
The 46 Passagemaker model featured a lower helm station which skippers may find handy on long passages which is positioned to starboard. Opposite the helm to port, set down two steps, was the spacious L-shaped galley complete with everything you need to feed the crew.
In terms of accommodation, the master cabin was to starboard and had its own head. The forward cabin was configured as V-berths with an inlay when required - this cabin used the 2nd head which featured a separate shower stall. The lower accommodation and heads feature overhead hatches, and likewise, opening 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 a S/S Ultra 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 which had its own dedicated battery for optimum performance. She was equipped with late-model Raymarine Hybrid Touch MFD electronics including radar. Two helm seats ensure 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 just been antifouled and polished and is blue water ready.
