Doug Peterson designs are synonymous with speed and sailing ability. The Kelly Peterson 46 offers a winning combination of great sailing characteristics and an efficient use of interior space – resulting in an excellent world-cruising yacht. The simplicity of her lines evolved from centuries of ocean voyaging, and below the waterline, the KP 46 shows her heritage. The forefoot and the area between the keel and rudder are cut away for responsive maneuvering. She tracks well, and the short overhangs are safe in high seas.
In 2010, Watercolors was repowered with a new 68-hp Yanmar engine, providing her with a faster, more reliable and more fuel efficient power plant than any other KP 46 available.
