The Beneteau 46 is one of the best designs ever and Emeritus is a beautiful example of this model. She has numerous upgrades and has been beautifully maintained.  With a superb sailing hull, she is sleek and fast.  Other nice features include easy access to a swim platform from the water, walkthrough transom, twin helms, large cockpit table, and wide companionway with gently sloped companionway stairs. Emeritus is very comfortable throughout with a well appointed interior including a 2-cabin, 2-head layout.  It is well lit and offers 6’7” headroom.  She is perfect for that retirement cruise or a family adventure.

The layout on this vessel is very comfortable and is designed to live-ability.  The galley is to the port side as you enter the boat and offers lots of space and a large L-Shaped counter.  The sink and storage are against the companionway stairs, the oven and storage along the hull and a long counter with freezer and fridge.

Opposite the galley to starboard of the companionway is access to the salon head, which has a separate shower and access to the master cabin which runs the width of the boat (athwartships). Hanging lockers and storage cabinets can be found on each side of the cabin including a custom 8 drawer cabinet.  This cabin includes a vanity mirror and also has rear access to the engine compartment.

Forward of the aft head compartment is the Navigation Station with dedicated seating, electrical panel and electronics.  Forward of that is the settee with a fold down arm rest and storage above and below.

The dinette has a large U-Shaped settee with a folding table that can serve as a cocktail table for entertaining or opens for dining.  There are 2 additional square benches that can be positioned on the centerline or moved to other areas as needed.  These benches come with positioning anchors for while underway.

The V-Berth is a large cabin with a vanity to starboard and lots of storage, lighting, ventilation and A/C.  This berth also has a separate head equipped with a separate shower space.
