Rig Dimensions

The Beneteau 46 is spacious, warm and inviting, thanks to the Nauta designed interior which emphasises the space with clean lines and a classy, modern finish enhanced by the soft toned Alpi wood finish and the huge amount of natural light that comes in through the plethora of windows and hatches.

The Galley is to port, tucked partly below the open-staired companionway. The L-shape makes good use of space with fridge, freezer, double stainless steel sinks, stove and plenty of storage. To starboard is a head, which can be accessed from the salon and the master cabin, and the master cabin which is enormous. It has a queen-sized berth that is situated at 45 degree angle, allowing access from both sides as well as to the storage and vanity at the port side of the cabin. A large mirror and vanity are centrally situated above an opening which provides access to the back of the engine. This cabin is well ventilated by numerous opening ports and hatches and has plentiful storage.

The salon is open and light with long portlights that run down the side of the coachroof, as well as skylights in the cabintop and opening hatches. The Nav station/chart table is to starboard & forward of this is a straight settee. A TV is positioned on the forward bulkhead. To port is a U-shaped settee round the dining table which can be lowered to form a double berth. A single seat/bench can be screwed into the floor on the midships side of the table, or released to use as seating if there is a crowd for dinner.

The forward cabin is a large V-berth with a vanity to starboard and a head, with a revolving shower door, to port. A large hatch in the cabintop provides ventilation and light and there is storage on both sides of the cabin as well as along the hull sides.

Tracy has sailed for over 30 years. As a former winner at Youngstown Level Regatta, he met Don Finkle and built a relationship that lead to his position at RCR. In addition to sailing, Tracy has a USCG Master’s Captain’s License. He considers himself lucky to have turned my avocation into his vocation. Sharing his knowledge and love for sailing and boating in general with both experienced boaters and those new to the sport has given him great pleasure and added new friendships to his life. As a founding member of Sail Erie helped shape the group of sailors with common interests focused on cruising and educational activities in the Greater Erie area. Tracy joined RCR Yachts in late 2001 and helped open RCR Erie in the spring of 2002. Since then he has enjoyed building our Erie office as a successful part of Erie and our regions boating community. Hundreds of boats, both power and sail have been sold from this office and their owners have joined the RCR Family of owners. We continue to focus our efforts to making the buying and boating experience a good one for our customers.
