This boat just had two significant refits, as she changed hands from owners in 2007 and again in 2012, both by her original builder, Wesmac, and a third less substantive though notable upgrading in 2014 including additional underwater lights, outriggers, green stick and hydraulic bow thruster!!. 2007/08 upgrades included fresh Awlgrip, all-new electronics, new larger fuel tanks, adding a generator and reverse-cycle air conditioning, battery capacity, and much more. Her 2012 refit was done to optimize her for recreational and semi-commercial Tuna and Swordfishing and involved the original builder stretching her to 46', adding underwater lights and the other gear warranted to be an effective fishing yacht. The total between these 3 refits nearly equals the asking price.
She is now for sale as her new owner absolutely loves WESMACS and has ordered a new 46 "wide", just the way he wants it for delivery in 2015

A beautifully finished interior done in the "Herreshoff Style" with varnished cherry accents on white semi-gloss panels with two staterooms, each with a double berth, head with stall shower, and up galley. The sole below is varnished teak and holly while the salon is carpeted. In keeping with the original (and the second and current owner's) desire of not making the boat overly complicated, there is an abundance of natural light and ventilation (the better to avoid the need for air conditioning), with three large hatches and six opening ports. Up in the wheelhouse one is totally surrounded by light, as large windows (six of them sliders with screens) are fitted in the house. Equally generous 12 volt lighting is fitted throughout with swivel-style reading lamps at the berths and settees and several overhead dome-style lamps elsewhere. Generous headroom with 6'6" in the wheelhouse and just slightly less below. Espar diesel cabin heat was added when she was two years old and keeps the boat warm in virtually any weather. The original cabin heat was provided by the Dickinson propane fireplace mounted in the salon.
Starting forward is the Forward Stateroom, featuring a 48" X 7'4" berth that is tapered at the foot. Above the berth there is storage in underdeck lockers and below the berth there is storage in four cargo drawers and some bin-type storage further forward. A dressing seat is on C/L and there is a hanging locker to port.
Aft and to starboard is the Midship Stateroom, featuring a 44" by 7' double berth with four large cargo drawers below and bin-type storage fore and aft. Aft is a bureau with four large drawers and forward is an equally generous hanging locker. The staterooms are very equivalent, so choose whichever one you want as the "Master."
Opposite to port is the Head, featuring electric W.C. plumbed via a Y-valve to the holding tank, vanity with polished stainless steel sink and an abundance of storage with lockers outboard and in lockers and drawers under. Adjoining the head is the separate stall shower with separate sump. There is a seat outboard, under which there is storage.
Up three steps (storage under two of them) to the Salon, Galley (see Galley below and Helm Station). A large 6'6" X 4'8" L-shaped settee with storage under provides plenty of seating while dining is from a varnished teak pedestal table. Opposite to port is the fore and aft running galley.
Forward and to starboard is the Helm Station with full vessel navigation systems and vessel controls, as well as the yacht's electrical distribution panels. Outboard there is storage in lockers. As part of the 2012 refit, she was given a convenient side door for immediate access to the side decks and forward, adjacent to the helm. A Bennett Rivermaster pedestal seat provides comfort for the skipper while on longer runs. Opposite to port is a double Bennett seat mounted on joiner work, which provides additional storage below. Forward, there is space for using the chart kit.

The Galley runs along the port side of the wheelhouse area and provides an abundance of work space and storage for the Chef, with a Corian countertop with a double basin stainless steel sink with manual fresh and pressurized H&C freshwater. Cooking is done off a Force 10 three-burner propane stove with an oven, while a GE microwave provides convenient warming of food. A full-sized Novacool dual voltage refrigerator and freezer provide plenty of space for chilled food storage.

The Caterpillar 3406 E has been thoroughly gone over and runs beautifully, turning a five-blade Nibral wheel on a 2 1/2" Aquamet shaft through a ZF 2:1 reduction gear. As of 11/30/13 shows 1462 hours. Much of the use has been cruising further afield so most of the hours have been ideal for it - long-term running at reasonable engine load. As part of the 2008 and again in 2012 overhaul of the running gear, the gear (transmission) is being replaced and optimized, and the new drive and the propeller is being re-pitched to further optimize the performance.

Hull & Deck
The hull and deck of this impressive downeast boat was done by Wesmac of Surry, Maine, but the original owner had her finished out by Johanson Boatworks.
Partially cored fiberglass hull built with vinylester resin throughout all hull laminates with kevlar in the exterior laminate for superior strength and weight reduction. The hull is cored with 1" thick end grain balsa from outboard of the engine stringers up. Below the water through hulls are either in the solid fiberglass on centerline or in solid fiberglass windows. The finish is Awlgrip White done in 2012 and the bottom is finished in a medium blue hard epoxy antifouling. The bottom was hard sanded in '07/08, removing all build-up and is very fair.
There are partially cored fiberglass decks with end grain balsa. The finish is two-tone light grey on white with all water ways, grab rails, etc. set in the contrasting smooth white gel coat. Varnished teak accents include grab rails, the brow on the house and cockpit coamings. The toe rail is PVC and has been awlgripped as part of the '08 refinishing. All deck areas were gone over at that time and touched up as warranted. The cockpit area was refinished with Awlgrip '12. As part of this refit, the hull was extended (potential buyers should understand that the Wesmac 42 and 46 are built from the same design so in lengthening the vessel she was simply made identical to other Wesmac 46's.
Full-width cockpit with "walk thru" transom and storage under the port and starboard side decks. There is a significant amount of lazarette storage below and a line rack has been fitted at the forward end of the cockpit. The cockpit was refit to accommodate the owners' desire to do serious recreational fishing; bait well and two insulated fish boxes were added below the cockpit sole and a tuna door was installed in the new transom.
Two steps up to the side decks, which are of comfortable width and fitted with convenient teak grab rails on the house side and the house top. A very easy vessel to get around.
All of the '07/'08 refit work was done by Wesmac, her original builder, with the exception of the Awlgrip job on the hull, which was done by Johanson Boatworks.

The orginal owners of HAZEL BROWNE (Ex K2, Ex KATHLEEN II) planned general use, which was short cruises and day trips in Maine, but they also wanted a vessel fully capable of longer voyaging when they chose to do so. (They did do a circumnavigation of Newfoundland with her). While they wanted comfortable ammenities, they also wanted to keep her reasonably simple. They struck a very good balance.
Her second owner planned to use her for more of the latter and made extensive overhauls and refits of every system on the boat to make her trouble-free and make her a better, longer voyaging boat, though she is still equally at home for shorter cruises. Her '07/'08 refit covered every system, along with the specific work noted. The intent was to ensure that the octogenarian owner had trouble-free cruising, especially as there were some plans for longer offshore runs and cruising in remote areas.
Her current owner desired comfortable ammenities that one would find on a yacht but wanted a purposeful recreational/commercial Tuna and Swordfishing boat as well. Given her 2008 updates the then-K2 pretty closely fit the bill, save the need for fishing gear and deck space. After her purchase, she was returned to Wesmac for a thorough going over, extend the hull and the addition of all the necessary fixtures and gear to fulfill the owner's objectives. She has performed extremely well for all three owners and is only on the market as her current owner has different pursuits in mind.
