Filling in the gap between their 40' and 53' models, the Friendship 46 is, like her successors, a study in elegance. Moving up from the 40, this new boat has a bigger galley, much larger head with shower, and a second cabin. Everything needed for short coastal cruises is there, yet she is not so large that you would think twice about taking her for a quick afternoon sail. The large cockpit and easily handled sail plan are a clear sign that this boat was meant for experiencing the joy of sailing. As nice as they are, the living accommodations are just icing on the cake.
