When we discontinued building the most popular Clipper ever, the Heritage 40, some owners were sad to see the end of an era. But lately we’ve been busy with some cutting edge boat models which are a long way from those Clipper design roots and history.
This new Heritage 46 is the traditional Heritage 40 reinvented and reimagined for today’s boating needs but still retains those classic Clipper styling cues. Firstly we designed her as a semi-displacement hull capable of speeds of 20 knots and planing at 14 knots comfortably. She can be built as a single or twin engine selection and has the keel as the lowest part of the boat of course.
The new 46 upgrades to a two cabin and two bathroom layout and has a really large saloon area on one level with the cockpit while boasting a much larger cockpit than the 40 it replaces. Plenty of customising is available for this layout from the traditional to more contemporary.
Boat #1 will have a port side galley with forward facing cruising seat on the port side and a double helm chair layout on the starboard side with a pilothouse door amidships to the walk around decks. She will have a fiberglass hard top on the very large flybridge along with seating for 10 and a flybridge helm. This first 46 will come in a gloss mahogany finish for a very high end and luxurious feel and powered by a single Volvo d8 600 HP diesel.
