1981 Oceanic Pilot House
The Oceanic 46 is a cutter rigged pilothouse designed by Ted Brewer and produced in 1981 by Mao Ta Boatyard in Taiwan. These vessels have a reputation for ease of handling seas and their quality of materials and build.
The renowned Brewer Bight is a fully encapsulated keel starting just aft the bow and carrying its 5'10" depth to just under the aft cockpit where it is cut out to protect the prop. The full length assures a stable ride and the design permits the shaft and propeller to be pulled w/o removing the rudder.
The pilothouse utilized a hydraulic steering system and the cockpit is selectively either hydraulic or quadrant. Both stations are equipped with Raymarine E-80 chartplotters and a full suite of Raymarine ST80 instruments.
A cruising couple or family will find the 46 foot length very livable with its easy separation into two living quarters. The aft cabin with en-suite bath and the pilothouse are separated from the galley, second head,salon and V-berth by a few steps and a door.
The salon's butterfly hatch lights up the area even on that rare rainy Caribbean day!
The Ford Lehman Diesel is the perfect engine for cruising to third world countries where computerized engine diagnostics are rare and replacement parts even more so.

Stepping down from the bridge deck and entering the pilot house, a control center, you won’t lose sight of where you are and where you are going. The ten large windows that surround you were replaced in 2015. Standing at the wheel, the full functions of the E80 chart plotter are at the controls plus the separate ST60 water depth, autopilot, wind indicator and speed. Sitting to port are the chart table, the ICOM 802 SSB radio, angled for convenient usage, and the VHF. From the pilothouse, one can monitor and control all of the power usages with the Paneltronic and Link 10. To complete the port side of the pilothouse is a locker: tall enough for hanging sailing jackets and pants.
The seating area on the starboard side was raised allowing a clear view of the surrounding seas from the seats without the need to go on deck and look out. You can be propped in the corner and with a quick glance see around, or relax using the pull-down table for coffee with your partner. Take away the cushion for a work bench. Take away the three back panels and find enough storage for a full workshop. Under the seats, are more storage and the easily accessed battery banks and solar panel controls. The steps open for storage of can goods, safety items, or extra life jackets. The engine and generator are under the teak and holly flooring.
AFT CABIN & AFT HEAD
Step aft to a small but complete en suite. The queen bed is over drawers and cabinets as well as long term storage. The opening port brings in the breeze and the hatch brings in the morning light. Cubbies hold weeks’ worth of tee shirts, tops, and other small or rolled items. The head has a sink and manual toilet as well as a built-hamper and a cabinet. The pull out faucet is new.
SALON, GALLEY & HEAD
Stepping forward and down two steps from the pilothouse, you enter the main living area. The U-shaped galley is to port, the head to starboard and the salon is forward.
Teak shelving and cabinets surround the salon’s leather cushioned settee. A drop down table converts to a guest berth. The butterfly hatch brings in light and fresh air.
The galley was refitted in 2012 with Corian counters and Vitrofrigo stainless refrigerator and freezer drawers. This AC/DC version was designed for marine application with drawers that bring food to your fingertips. The old lay-on-the-counter and dig-in-head-first ice boxes were converted to a trash bin and a storage bin. There is a stainless Force 10 propane stove and double stainless sinks.
The tiled head has Corian counters, an under-mount stainless sink with new faucet, electric Raritan head and separate shower room. The head is plumbed to a U.S. qualified holding tank with the option of using pump out removal from the deck or removal from the holding tank via the macerator to a thru hull. You may also choose to bypass the holding tank and pump directly to a thru hull located under the sink.
The V-berth has a queen sized bed with a nice sized hatch overhead and a port side and a starboard side port. The shelving is plentiful and there’s loads of storage in drawers, behind doors, and under the mattress and under the bench seat. All this and a hanging locker.
Tucked forward into the berth are two opening doors to the chain locker.
This berth would impress any guest. It is private with a closing door off the salon and entry and exit can be made through the hatch.
The engine is the original Ford Lehman. It has 3500 hours and a life expectancy of 10,000 hours. Oil and belt changes are performed regularly by the owner. All other maintenance on this engine has been done by professionals. This is the engine you will want when traveling to countries where computers and exact manufacturer replacement parts are not available, it is an engine that is understood most of the world over. It has a dual Racor fuel filter, Algae-X, and oil filter as additional protection against problems.
In 1983 a 4kw Onan generator was installed and then at some point around 1984 it was changed in to a 8kwMDK Onan. She is faithful to running well and to topping our batteries every three to four days.
