When Cruising World called the Outbound 46 “An elegant blend of sensibility and sophistication”, they meant it. Designed by renowned yacht designer Carl Schumacher and built to the highest standards of sailing yacht construction, Chesapeake will take you comfortably across any ocean. Her solid fiberglass construction offers the displacement required to give the yacht an easy and forgiving motion but her lines and parameters define that performance… long waterline, moderate beam, high righting moment, proper weight distribution and efficient foils. An elegant hand-crafted interior, semi-raised salon that fills the cabin with natural light, comfortable accommodations and superb load carrying capability will ensure your comfort whether you plan to head out for an evening sail or a long offshore passage.

Chesapeake is impressively outfitted with all the gear and equipment needed for extended blue water voyaging. Her highly experienced owners have continually upgraded her systems with an eye towards keeping her a reliable cruising platform. Highlights include:

Interior Accommodations
Beautifully handcrafted in teak with teak and holly soles and Corian countertops, the interior of Chesapeake is both practical for offshore use and comfortable for entertaining guests at anchor. With her partly raised salon and large ports, accommodations will be filled with natural light, excellent ventilation and good proximity to those on watch or relaxing in the cockpit. All hatches in the teak and holly cabin sole are locking, and drawers and louvered cabinet doors have positive pushbutton latches to keep gear in place. Opening ports and hatches provide excellent ventilation. There are plenty of handholds to ease movement through the cabin when the seas kick up or you’re heeling over. Overhead dome and reading lights are well-placed. Hella turbo fans are located in each cabin/space to assist with cooling. Courtesy lights illuminate the cabin sole underway at night.

The master stateroom is located forward of the main salon through a locking privacy door. Chesapeake features a centerline queen-sized “island” berth that hinges up to access bin storage. Four drawers slide out from the aft end of the berth pedestal. The berth is fitted with a thick foam mattress and padded headboard on the forward bulkhead. Two reading lights are mounted on the forward bulkhead. Long, closed shelves with sliding doors are outboard, up high, below the deck edge on either side of the berth. Aft to starboard, a cedar-lined hanging locker sits below an open shelf. A cabinet with four deep shelves is just forward. To port, another matching cabinet with shelves is just forward of the ensuite head. An overhead hatch, four opening ports, two dome lights, and 110V outlet complete this stateroom.

The forward head head is entered through a privacy door in the port aft corner of the master stateroom. This space is finished “white” for easy maintenance with select teak trim around the mirror and a removable varnished teak shower grate in the sole. The head is outboard. A very clever Corian counter with 10″ round stainless steel sink slides out, over the head when needed. A medicine cabinet is located behind a mirrored door. There is a light over the sink, dome light, shower hose with nozzle and bracket, 110V outlets, and towel bars.

The main salon is a bright, comfortable living area with natural light and visibility provided by the large salon windows. A seven foot long U-shaped dinette is located to port with a straight settee to starboard. The straight settee’s backrest mid-section drops forward to become a small table; great for a game of cards or a place for drinks! The dinette is large enough to seat many guests – a must on any cruising boat. Two slide out drawers are located under the dinette ends. Book shelves with adjacent lockers are above both settees. Storage areas outboard of the settee cushions and bin storage under the dinette cushions nicely store months of provisions. Aft of the starboard settee, a tall, open bookshelf sits atop a slide-out spirits locker. Dome light lights, four reading lights, two cabin fans, and an overhead hatch provide light and ventilation.

The U-shaped galley is to port and aft of the main salon, and includes Corian counters, forward facing double stainless steel sinks with single lever faucet with pull out nozzle and Force Ten three burner propane stove with oven and broiler. A microwave locker with roll top door is above the stove. The top-loading freezer/refrigeration boxes are equipped with a reliable refrigeration system. There is plenty of space for storage of ship’s stores, dishes, cutlery, and pots and pans. A teak china rack is mounted above the forward end of the counter. Chesapeake’s galley will easily meet the needs of the most discerning chef. The space also meets the “safety at sea” requirement. When tucked into the U-section of the galley, one is not only secure but also out of the way of anything that might be launched from the stove top! Separated from the flow of traffic, the large galley still provides an excellent location for interfacing with guests either in the cockpit or at the dinette table forward.

The navigation station is located aft of the galley on the port side. A comfortable navigator’s seat provides an excellent spot to view charts and electronics offshore or to relax and chat with the chef at anchor. The top opening chart table easily accommodates charts with a built-in cabinet forward for a radar/chart plotter. The electrical panel is outboard of the helm seat and the Raymarine charplotter and Icom VHF and SSB radios are mounted forward above the nav table. A flexible spotlight lights up the table at night and drawers and lockers below the nav table and seat provide excellent storage for additional tools. A deep “catch all” bin is outboard of the chart table.

The aft head to starboard of the galley is finished in molded white gel coat surfaces that are both easy to clean and bright. Located near the companionway, the head compartment is a perfect place to shed salty foul weather gear before entering the main cabin. The separate enclosed shower is located forward of the head. A seat and double locker are located outboard and a teak grate covers the shower sole. Just aft, the head is laid out with Corian countertop and a stainless steel sink outboard along the hull side. A teak-trimmed, mirrored sliding door locker is located behind the counter and additional storage is available in a locker under the sink. A fan, two towel bars, coat hook, dome light, over counter light, cowl vent, and 110V outlet complete this space.

The enclosed aft stateroom is to starboard of the companionway and features a comfortable double berth measuring 79″ long by 53″ wide forward and 36″ wide aft. A divided 6″ thick foam mattress lifts up to access aft storage bins and hot water heater. Two drawers are below the bunk forward. Louvered lockers are above and outboard of the berth with additional storage in cabinets along the aft bulkhead. There is a large hanging locker and book shelves. Two ports open into the cockpit providing excellent ventilation. An overhead hatch, cabinside opening port, and 110V oulet are also fitted.

Chesapeake’s technical room aft and to port of the engine compartment is any sailor’s dream come true. There is a work bench with shelves, lockers and drawers outboard and plenty of space for the generator and watermaker inboard under the cockpit sole. The cockpit lazarette opens into the mechanical room allowing one to stand while working. The steering quadrant is accessed through a hatch in the aft bulkhead. The companionway ladder lifts easily on gas springs to provide access to the front end of the engine compartment which is sound insulated. Removable panels on either side further access the engine. While there’s plenty of room for all the equipment that makes for comfortable cruising, there’s also ample space and access available to easily service these systems.

Deck and Hull
Chesapeake’s hull is 100% hand laid fiberglass. The outer three layers were done with vinylester resin for blister resistance. In addition to the vinylester resin, the bottom has an epoxy non-permeable barrier coat. Knytex bi-axial cloth was used in the layup for added impact resistance. Additional reinforcement was added to bottom, turn of bilge and bow as well. While in the mold, heavy duty fiberglass longitudinal/floor/mast step/engine bed grids were glassed directly into the hull. All athwartships stringers, bulkheads, and furniture are glassed and securely bonded to the hull while still in the mold. Hull and keel were molded in a single lamination. The encapsulated keel then had a 3500 pound bulb bolted to it (10,000 pound total ballast) for excellent righting moment. Three layers of glass cover the bolted on lead bulb. The deck was laid up and vacuumed bagged with Baltek Balsa core. Contrasting nonskid is molded-in and aluminum toe rail caps the hull to deck joint. High density foam is used in areas where there are deck penetrations (ie. chainplates, cleats, etc.). There is a solid watertight bulkhead 7’ from the bow for added safety.

The deck layout is ergonomically sound with unobstructed pathways from stem to stern. The cockpit seats are long enough to lay down on. Crew can position feet on the opposite settees when sailing to windward. The high coaming seatbacks add safety and are angled properly for comfortable use while underway. The helm seat lifts for a walkthrough transom, with dedicated liferaft locker beneath. There are four dorade vents, eight hatches, and ten ports for excellent ventilation below. The dodger, bimini and infill offer protection from the elements and are in excellent condition. The pulpits and stanchions are 30” high. The stern pulpit is 1.25” stainless and wraps the entire stern to the admidships lifeline gates. Stanchions are also 1.25” in diameter. Stainless steel grab rails are mounted on the cabin top; all within continuous reach. Chesapeake is a very well thought-out performance cruiser and ready for offshore use. Excellent deck-accessed storage is found in the huge “climb-in” bow locker, starboard quarter locker, and port cockpit settee locker.
