Salthouse 46ft Bluewater ketch

A comfortable bluewater cruiser from the drawing board of Bob Salthouse.
This series of yachts were built in South Korea and this vessel was fully equipped with imported American equipment by her first owner.
She has a very spacious aft master cabin with its own private head and separate shower stall ... plus a generous forward stateroom which also has its own head and shower. She can accommodate two couples in privacy and comfort ... plus the saloon table with the sofa converts to another double berth for any extra guests.

The ketch rig is ideal for passage making and this vessel is well equipped throughout.

The Venus 46 has a good deck layout and a great center cockpit with deep sides which makes it comfortable in any seas. The cockpit features full instruments and has four large storage lockers plus an ice cooler. There is good protection with a NEW bimini (2015) and a solid aluminum hard bimini which keeps the sun and the wet weather out. There's a large vertical windlass with stainless chain guard on deck and there are two deck hatches aft for ample storage, including one for the outboard engine, gas and propane.
