46' Jutson 46 LRC
If you haven't seen this Luxury cat on the water then you won't see any others as this is the only Australian built Scott Jutson design that made it to this side of the globe.. Designed to fulfill a clients wish list this boat was the beginnings of the Meridian Power Cat Line in Australia. Taking almost 19000 man hours to build this is one of the best documented custom Motor Cats under 50 feet. Drawings, construction notes and a complete picture documentary of the build were all saved with this boat. Design features and systems most people dream about are found throughout this cat and even though it is now 20 years old its easy to see she was well ahead of her time. The fiberglass, epoxy, kevlar, foam layup makes it a stout quiet cat that the Australians are known for. On the inside wood appointments throughout make this boat a big step above most other catamarans in her class. With 48000 BTUs of air conditioning coming from two units its pretty easy to stay as cool as the boat looks. Add the dual master stateroom lay out, one in each hull and you have a serious cruising machine where four adults can stretch out and get comfortable.
This yacht can be operated from three separate locations. Inside helm station, Fly bridge helm station with full controls, portable bow station with throttle and autopilot controls.
Every where you look there are features that you usually don't find :
Child/pet gates to keep them safely off the swim platforms while under way
Stainless steel drawer inserts
Removable laptop work station on passenger wheel house seat
Pompanette Patnium Series Captain's Chair and companion seats
Separate drinking faucet with filter at every sink
Walk in engine rooms with easy access on all sides of the main engines
Engine removal hatches

Your own fuel polishing and tank transfer system
Fuel primers for fuel filter changes
Storage every place there was room to put it
The list is long
The skinny 3'3" draft coupled to a low 16' 5" bridge clearance and a 780 gallon fuel capacity makes this a great boat for those who want to do the loop in Catamaran style and comfort.
