The Formosa 46 cutter was a pioneer in performance cruising design. Drawn originally for Jack Kelly Yachts by Doug Peterson, the 44 debuted in 1976 as a dedicated cruiser comfortable in any wind. The Formosa F46 is a slight variation to this design. The Formosa 46 features a low-profile center cockpit, pleasing to the eye and a low center of gravity. The long-fin keel with cutaway forefoot and afterbody reduces wetted surface for good light-air performance and shorter turning radius. The full-size molded-in skeg supports the rudder and provides good protection for cruising in shoal water. 30,000 pounds displacement (10,000 of this is buried in encapsulated lead ballast) gives the boat an easy motion at sea. On deck, a double-spreader cutter rig supports 1,011 square feet of working sail. The all teak interior features two well-appointed sleeping cabins. The owners stateroom is aft with queen size berth and private head with shower.
