Experienced sailors know the added safety that comes with good sailing performance: the ability to sail off a lee shore, to fetch a safe harbor that is dead upwind or to complete a passage within the available weather window. These are key safety factors that should not be overlooked when selecting an offshore passagemaker. Evensong, an Outbound 46 (hull # 30), speaks to each of these requirements while also acknowledging the value of a comfortable environment in fighting fatigue when offshore and in enjoying new surroundings in a far off anchorage.
Designed by the late Carl Schumacher, Evensong has the solid construction and displacement that give a yacht an easy and forgiving motion, her lines and design specifications define those characteristics. Her long waterline, moderate beam, high righting moment, proper weight distribution and efficient foils make for wonderful cruising platform. Her elegant handcrafted interior and semi raised salon fill the cabin with natural light and comfortable accommodations and superb load carrying capacity ensure the comfort of all who venture from the confines of protected waters.
Evensong has been professionally maintained by her owners since new. Her cherry interior shows as a much newer boat. Her exterior is clean and glossy, her bilges clean and mold free. Her exclusive use in the Pacific Northwest means that her gelcoat is not oxidized and her metals are corrosion free. Evensong has the Outbound designed and manufactured davit installed as well as a substantial solar array. Her anti-fouling has recently been renewed and she is ready for her new owners to begin straight away. She is located in Poulsbo, WA and ready for her next adventures.

EVENSONG’s hull is conceived for serious offshore cruising. Each Outbound Yacht is constructed of 100% hand-laid fiberglass laminate. This is still the preferred choice with a massive system of stringers, longitudinals and bulkheads that are carefully bonded directly to the hull while still in the mold. Laminates are increased in high stress areas and in the bow and bilge for added strength. Bi-axial cloth adds to the overall impact resistance and outer layers of vinylester resin protect against osmotic blistering. Ashland Maz-Guard premium ISO-NPGH gelcoat is used to protect the laminate and provide a superior gloss for years. To eliminate keel bolt troubles the hull and keel are molded as a single lamination. After the deck is through bolted and sealed to the hull with 3M 5200 sealant the bulkheads are fiberglassed on their entire perimeter, not just screwed in place. All furniture is then carefully bonded to the hull adding to the structural support system.The deck is Baltek cored and vacuum bagged with the core materials removed and replaced with solid fiberglass and stainless backing plates in critical areas. There are removable overheard access panels throughout to get to deck hardware. Pushpit, pulpit and mast rails are 1 1/2 in stainless tubing. Lifelines are double wire and tubing from the port and starboard gates aft. There are stainless handrails on the cabin top and padeyes to connect jacklines and harnesses. Mooring cleats are 12 in stainless, suitable for a large ocean going yacht. There are ten stainless steel opening ports and eight Lewmar hatches. Four dorade vents and Nicro solar fans provide plenty of ventilation.The cockpit is a safe and comfortable place whether driving the boat in a gale or resting in a placid anchorage. The long seats provide plenty of room for entertaining, sleeping outside or sunbathing. Most importantly, the cockpit is deep and narrow with seat backs ergonomically designed for maximum comfort. For safety and comfort the Outbound 46 was designed to make moving about the cockpit and cabin as easy as possible. The three step companionway allows you to use the whole boat without having to use a steep and long ladder. Foward of the companionway is a molded sea hood with integral instrument panel and large coaming for attaching the dodger. A walk thru transom with boarding platform and fold down swim ladder make access to the dinghy and water easy. And there is a built in liferaft storage container accessible to the cockpit and platform. An Iverson cockpit enclosure is included.Excellent stowage and load carrying capacity are designed into the Outbound’s hull and deck. Two hundred gallons of water and 180 of fuel is below the sole and over the keel which adds to the boats upwind performance. This also opens up space under the settees and bunks for other stowage. There is a large foredeck locker forward of the watertight bulkhead and accessed from the deck. The locker also offers standup access to the anchor locker and makes stowing an asymmetrical spinnaker a breeze. In addition to the forward locker there is a giant cockpit lazarette, a large propane locker and access to the “garage” aft of the after head.There is a cockpit enclosure included and shown in the photos section.EVENSONG was hauled in December of 2020 and her anti-fouling paint renewed. A full boat cover for off season storage is included in the sale.Interior Accommodations

There is a teak and holly cabin sole and locking drawers and cabinets can be secured. Large salon windows fill the living areas with natural light. Opening ports and hatches with screens provide excellent ventilation. There are plenty of handholds to make passage easy and safer when the \seas kick up or you are heeling over.

Opposite to starboard are two large lockers, divided in the center by a bureau of five drawers, including a vanity and mirror. Forward of this cabin is the private head with fully separate shower stall.
The main salon is aft of the master stateroom. There is a seven foot long U-shaped dinette to port with a drop leaf table with a straight settee to port. The mid section of the backrest of the starboard settee drops down to become a small table perfect for playing cards or having a drink. There is a wine cabinet behind this table. Book shelves with adjacent lockers are above and behind both settees. The settee coverts into a generous sea berth when underway. There is a 900 amp/hr battery bank below this settee for easy access to the batteries. The cushions are covered blue ultra-suede. There are lee cloths available as well.
The U-shaped galley is located to port and aft of the main salon and includes Corian counters, forward facing double stainless sink and Scanvik faucets. There is a dish storage rack above the sinks. There are two large access hatches to the fridge and freezer on the port side as well as a three burner gimballed Force 10 stove with oven. There is generous storage including a pantry with generous open storage and two deep drawers behind the navigation station.
Across from the galley to starboard is the navigation station. Situated adjacent to the companionway the navigator will be in close proximity to those on watch allowing communication with the helm. The top opening chart table easily accommodates all the necessary navigation equipment. There are drawers and lockers for tools,winch handles and binoculars. The Raymarine E-120 Radar/Chartplotter screen is here as well as VHF. The electrical panel is on the aft side of the nav area and allows for full access to the back and wiring.
The guest stateroom is aft of the navigation station and is comprised of a comfortable double berth. Louvered lockers are above and outboard of the berth with additional storage in cabinets along the aft bulkhead. There is a large hanging locker a book shelf as well as two drawers below the berth. Hatches and ports provide light and ventilation including into the cockpit.
Aft of the galley on the port side is the aft head finished in molded surfaces that are easy to clean and impervious to moisture. This head is close to the companionway for excellent access to the on watch crew or storage of foul weather gear. The stainless steel sink is set into a counter and there is a mirror above. The integral shower is handy to the aft cabin on the opposite side of the companionway. There is also internal access to the garage from this head.
