REUNION is a custom Downeast cruiser, built to exceptionally high standards by Zimmerman Marine, for a knowledgeable couple with circumnavigation experience. Built on the proven Newman 46 hull, the interior layout design and engineering drawings were completed by Zurn Yacht Design. REUNION has been impeccably maintained by her original owners.
Number of single berths: 2
Number of double berths: 1
The Z46 is an excellent sea boat, providing a very soft comfortable ride, tracking well at trawler speed or planing. Her full keel and skeg provide protection for her 32" 5 blade prop.
The interior is finished in cherry, with a light maple sole. The main cabin includes a recliner, settee, and entertainment center with a hand picked marble top. The two power Stidd chairs are mounted on custom pedestals so that they can be lowered to settee height and turned around for addition seating in the saloon.
The chart table moves out of the way and a 30 flat screen on an Inca lift provides entertainment, along with the surround sound system.
Underway the two Stidd chairs raise up and face forward, providing excellent comfort and visibility. The navigation station at the helm has been redesigned and rebuilt to provide a lower profile. There is a sliding door at the helm and opposite, and a sliding door aft as well.
The galley is down, but aft of the windshield, providing abundant light and ventilation. while preserving the "living room" feeling of the main cabin. There is a wet bar and pantry opposite the galley. Outboard of the bar is a guest cabin with upper and lower berths and a private head and shower, which serves as a day head when no guests are aboard.
The master stateroom has a centerline queen, surrounded by rich woodwork and with abundant storage. A large overhead hatch combined with opening ports provide plenty of light and air.
The cockpit, planked in teak,covered by the extended cabin top, and including a screen and clear enclosure, offers a "back porch" with great views while protected from the sun.
