This 46 Sullivan was built for the specific purpose of carrying up to six passengers offshore sport fishing and she serves that purpose extremely well. Cold molded construction, 140 sq. ft. cockpit with integrated live well behind the aluminum bridge ladder to Starboard. A large integrated ice box and bait cooler is to port along the back bulkhead. Two ladder-back fighting chairs and a center rocket launcher make for a clean, uncluttered work space.
Sliding salon door is slightly off center to Starboard, the salon is spacious and functional!
A large, built in L-shaped sofa is to Starboard with an easily accessible (3-drawer, 1 cabinet) tackle center aft of the sofa. Electrical panel is built into the forward side of this cabinet for easy access.
Another cabinet is located to Port just inside the salon door for additional storage along with a bench style, built in sofa. There is storage beneath both sofas.
Day galley has been converted to accommodate a drop in bait freezer, stainless steel sink and refrigerator. Additional cabinets Port and Starboard of companionway.
All interior trim is teak with the majority varnished, salon sole is carpeted which lifts up easily to access Port, Stbd. and center engine hatches.
Heading down the companionway steps, there is a day bunk to Port with horizontal rod storage. A single day head with separate shower stall, vanity and electric head is to Port side. A tackle center with shelves, counter top and drawers is just forward of the day head.
A single elevated day bunk is in the V-berth with additional rod storage here as well
The Bridge features a single helm chair, built in bench style seating integrated into each wing and a varnished teak helm pod with single lever controls. Electronics cabinets forward of the helm pod. Bridge has a three sided enclosure with zippered window panels.
This boat has some cosmetic needs, specifically paint. Her teak covering boards are also thin and are at the end of their useful life. Machinery wise the boat is in really good condition and shows evidence of care by an experienced, full time Captain. Fuel tanks are not original having been replaced within the past five years. AC unit is also not original and was replaced not long ago. This boat is ready to fish tomorrow and came through recent Hurricane Matthew with only very minor needs.
