Royal Passagemaker 46


The 46' series is proven to be extremely seaworthy and very efficient. Several of the 46' Trollers have shown an average fuel burn of one gallon per hour, (combined cruising and trolling averaged over a fishing season).

Greg Marshall has just completed the preliminary plan & portfile designs of the 46' vessel shown. This new vessel will be available in both two & three stateroom models. The two stateroom model offers a full beam mid ship master stateroom with the guest stateroom forward. The three stateroom model offers two double staterooms amidship and the master stateroom forward. This vessel will displace approximately 50,000 lbs., making it a very capable ocean voyager with the latest comfort, styling and design features.

This vessel is truly capable of taking an adventurous couple with or without friends economically cruising around the oceans of the world in safety, with all the comforts of home. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me at any time.

General Construction

The hulls, decks and cabin structures are vacuum infused with vinylester resin and unidirectional glass fibres. When core is used in our laminates, we use ATC Corecel triple cut within our infused laminate. There are generous overlaps at all edges of material runs, with the stem and keel having double hull laminates. Being that we use vinylester resin for vacuum infusion, the risk of osmosis has been eliminated.

The deck and cabin structure is cored with high density foam which provides strength and rigidity as well as an insulating factor. Unlike Balsa core the foam does not break down or rot over time.
