NEW LISTING!  1982 Kelly/Peterson 46' "BEYOND"
BROKER'S COMMENTS:  Don't let this chance go by!  "Beyond" is a stunning example of the rare and heavily sought-after Kelly/Peterson 46'.  This center-cockpit cutter is the only one of her kind on the market right now and already has an audience of admirers.  This beauty is Hull #05 of just 30 meticulously built between 1980 and 1990 by Queen Long Marine, regarded as the finest boat builder in Tawain (they continue to build Hylas Yachts onsite).  "Beyond" is a fast bluewater sailboat, and she is ready and well-equipped for her next adventure!  
MANUFACTURER'S COMMENTS:  The Kelly/Peterson 46 is designed for comfortable living at sea and at anchor. The care and consideration of design and construction are of the highest caliber. The KP46 is the culmination of years of experience with cruising and yacht design. This is why the Kelly/Peterson 46 is so well built and equipped that it requires only a sextant and a destination.

Kelly/Peterson 46 Brochure
Fast ocean passages. Quiet moments at anchorage.  Rhythms of life and sea.
Born on the board of racing designer Doug Peterson, the Kelly/Peterson 46 moves with the power and grace of an ocean racer, yet surrounds you with luxury, comfort and
convenience. The simplicity of its lines have evolved from centuries of ocean voyaging.
Below the water line, the KP 46 shows its heritage of performance. The forefoot and the area between keel and rudder is cut away for responsive turning. She tracks well, needing only moderate attention to the helm. The low-wetted surface means fast sailing in light winds; her internal lead ballast of 11,330 lbs, fiberglass bonded in place, keeps on her feet even in a blow. 
The long water line gives the KP 46 a high 8.8 knot hull speed, and the short overhangs are safe in the high seas.  The Kelly/Peterson 46 is powered by 1100 sq. ft. of sail area, cutter rigged for easy handling with her furling head sails.  When not under sail, she is
powered by 75 HP diesel engine.  She is quiet, whether under sail or power. Dropping the hook and hoisting it is simple with her Nilsson V1000 electric anchor winch.

All systems are easily accessible through numerous inspection panels—for electrical as well as water tanks. The engine has easy access from either the port or starboard side with the panels, which are soundproofed, completely removable. A central graywater holding tank with automatic pump-out eliminates several thru-hull fittings. A workshop is located port side aft of the galley with access from the galley or the cockpit.

The Kelly/Peterson 46 is one of the most impeccably built boats in the world. The hull is
hand-layed fiberglass, exceeding the normal engineering standards of strength. The chain
plates are massive, and the Airex core deck is extremely rigid. The hull and deck have been thoroughly bonded for watertightness. The finest available hardware has been selected from American, British, Canadian and New Zealand manufacturers.

She is easily handled by one couple, but accommodation wise, you can bring your friends along for company. The interior, designed by architect Victor Huff, has been carefully organized to be visually open while keeping a handhold always within reach. The staterooms, one aft and one forward, are spacious and each has a private head with shower. The bunks are king-sized in length. Lockers are vented to maintain freshness, and when opened a light turns on automatically. The teak veneer interior and teak and holly sole give you a feeling of comfort and warmth.

The settee, port side main salon, slides out 6 inches to allow a spacious 6’8” berth in the main salon. The U-shaped dinette, graced by a teak table with drop leafs on each side, seats six in comfort. The built-in stereo has four speakers, two in the main salon, and two in the aft stateroom. Open your swing-out bar, tune in your favorite music, and relax below in the main salon or above in the spacious cockpit.

The galley is to port as you come down the companionway. It is equipped with a hot and cold pressure water system as well as foot pumps for fresh or salt water plus two stainless steel sinks. The gimballed 3 burner propane stove has oven and broiler with a solenoid shut-off and safety valve. The separate refrigerator and freezer are equipped with a
Fridgomatic K50F refrigeration system. For the cook’s comfort, an additional deck hatch is located above the galley for the utmost in ventilation. The galley is spacious, yet compact, to provide safety in all types of sea conditions. Its open effect allows the
cook to be a part of the social scene.

The navigation station is to starboard, just aft of the dinette, and across from the galley. The large chart table allows ample room for charting your course. A trip log and sum log keep track of your distances, and a VHF radio provides ship-to-shore communications. Ample space is available for radar, satellite navigation equipment and chartplotter.
