There are various options available with the Outbound 46…Chart Table can be starboard or port, the Dining Table can be fixed or drop down, and the Master Stateroom Berth can be Pullman or Centerline. S

Outbounds unique semi-raised salon eliminates the dark cave feeling you have on most sailboats without losing the close interaction of the cockpit, galley, and salon ... giving the interior of the Outbound a "family room" feel that is lost on many of the deck salons we are seeing today. Raising the house a few inches provides plenty of natural light below, space for over 350 gallons of tank capacity in the middle of the boat, and a safe three step companionway.

The port side of the standard interior includes a full size forward facing chart table, U-shaped galley with Corian counters, and a large dinette. Aft to starboard is a large quarter cabin that includes a 48" wide double berth with spacious headroom. Just forward of the head is a large settee that has been widened to feel more like your favorite couch than a traditional yacht settee. The settee and outboard side of the dinette make excellent sea berths.

A large shower doubles as a wet locker located just steps from the companionway. Heads are molded fiberglass for easy cleaning, with Corian counters.

Forward of the mast is the owners stateroom, with either a pullman berth or a centerline double berth for the ultimate in comfort while at anchor or at the dock. A second head, hanging locker, seat, and storage lockers complete the cabin.

The engine is located under the hinged companionway for easy maintenance. Access to a generator, refrigeration, steering, and other machinery is available either through the cockpit hatch or from inside the cabin.
