The Sense 46 promises a unique experience on board. Intelligently designed and unmatched in comfort, this sailing yacht does away with many of the constraints of cruising to make it fun and easy to sail. This is the new way of sailing.

Exterior design

The Sense 46's architecture is completely new and organized to create continuity between indoor and outdoor activities. Perfectly designed, her hull makes her remarkably stable and yet she does not compromise in speed under sail.  She is open to all the pleasures of the sea, thanks to a jack-assisted stern transom that lowers fully and two helm seats which lift like a draw bridge.

Interior design

She only has three steps to enter the interior space. This is bathed in light streaming in through the best openings ever seen on a cruiser. The lines of her design are clean and the fittings have clever functions. The saloon is a genuine living room.  The master cabin has an ensuite bathroom fitted with a separate shower. The island bed is a luxury in this category second to none.

Sense of ocean cruising

The layout of the Sense 46 fittings is a distillation of design and ergonomics.
Perfect for a skipper’s joie de vivre and comfort, she is ideal for safe ocean-cruising and for sharing all this pleasure in total freedom. 

Sunbathing area

By lowering the cockpit table, this space can be turned into a huge sun-lounger.


By simply lifting the helm seats, a passageway to the swim platform is cleared. Lowering or rising, the transom closes off the cockpit for safe sailing.

Three in one

The central piece of furniture edged with stainless steel fiddles has an extra double seat inside for the saloon table. It also houses a retractable 32” television on a motorized lift-system. It gives you support in the galley when the boat heels and provides an additional grab rail on board.
