Vessel Walkthrough

The custom 46' Jarrett Bay was built to accommodate a POD drive system and uses every inch of space inside the 46' Jarrett Bay hull. Inside the boat offers two staterooms, each with their own private head, as well as a spacious u-shaped galley down below.

The salon features a lower helm station with a 360 degree view of the exterior. To starboard a generous sized lower helm chair. An for ease of navigation, an elevated riding l-seat is located adjacent. Aft an l-shaped lounge with storage underneath sits acorss from a dry bar which houses additional refrigerator/freezer and entertainment system.

Stepping outside you'll find a generous cockpit with all of the amenities to include a mezzanine seat with ice chipper space below and to port a tackle center with several drawers tucked behind the access to the bridge.

The bridge is truly one of its kind with comfortable seating to include two molded barrell chairs, forward of the helm, along with the port bench seat and twin Release teak helm chairs. The hardtop was built by Bausch and features recessed teaser reels, molded in lights and Rupp outriggers.

Salon Interior

The Jarrett Bay 46 has much to offer in this regard. The boat has a decidedly old-world interior with rich, dark woods like smoked oak and burled walnut. Another retro aspect comes in the form of full-width windows in the cabin front, something most sport-fishing boatbuilders discontinued 30 years ago when many buyers claimed they feared taking green water over the bow, crashing through the glass. Apparently, people now realize that that virtually never happens, and it's really nice to have the extra ambient light in the cabin to alleviate the effects of "cave" syndrome. Finally, a true retro feature finds a lower helm station to starboard in the salon, giving you both an open flybridge and an enclosed station on a 46-footer!?
