Helmsman Trawlers 46 Pilothouse

Helmsman Trawlers 46 Pilothouse

The Helmsman Trawlers® 46 Pilothouse extends our line in several key dimensions – extended range, greater comfort, more passengers, and enhanced seagoing capability.

With a fully-loaded displacement of 55,000 lbs and a beam of 16’3”, this is a substantial boat. Sturdy construction, simple, reliable systems, top-quality equipment and materials, and a stable efficient hull shape, coupled with Helmsman’s exceptional standards for quality make this a remarkable value in a serious long-range cruiser, proving yet again that Helmsman Trawlers® has the formula for building superbly crafted trawlers at a surprisingly affordable price.

Designed for a CE Class A Rating – to expand the scope of your cruising adventures.

This wide-beam design has a stunning interior – in appearance and volume – with abundant natural light and ventilation. The salon rivals 55+ footers, and accommodations include a spacious master stateroom with ensuite head and a separate shower. A variety of guest accommodation layouts are available. The U-shaped galley is open to the salon and includes plenty of refrigerator and freezer capacity, storage volume and countertop space. The pilothouse has excellent visibility, seating for six while underway, and offers an open connection with the salon for ease of movement and communication. The flybridge is easily and safely accessed by secure stairs on both sides, and the foredeck includes integral fender and line storage lockers and cushioned exterior seating. The large cockpit is fully covered against rain and sun and features cockpit side-entry doors and an entertainment cabinet.

A single-engine, full keel design with a sturdy protective skeg, protected running gear and bow and stern thrusters, this model exemplifies our values for:

  • Simplicity – non-complex systems with proven components that are easily maintained
  • Reliability – easy access for serviceability; heavily-built full keel and protected running gear to help prevent underwater damage
  • Longevity – sturdy fibreglass construction, quality stainless steel and solid interior construction improves durability and minimizes depreciation
  • Economy – single diesel in an efficient, stable hull design
  • Beauty – a rich, nautical interior with masterful craftsmanship executed in teak never goes out of style

All Helmsman Trawlers are designed for long-range, comfortable passage-making. They feature sturdy construction, reliable mechanical and electrical systems, quality components and materials, and stable, efficient hull designs. Beautiful nautical interiors are expertly crafted. Helmsman Trawlers are built to exceptional standards and our quality is superb – examine and compare! Starting at $1,049,000 USD
