Island Gypsy’s 460 Now Twin Cabin

by admin

This Island Gypsy 46 with the two-cabin layout is available for immediate delivery. 

It suits cruising families seeking an economical and feature-filled motor yacht. At 14m it’s the same LOA as the first two Newport models, but the space below decks has been expertly optimised to accommodate a second cabin, with large ensuite in common, including separate shower, toilet and vanity.

The second cabin has a double bed and a pullman bunk above with full-head room and plenty of storage. The galley and saloon are designed for socialising, and feature large Corian benchtops, twin 140L refrigerators/freezers, overhead cabinetry, dining table, convection microwave and two-burner electric hotplate.

The cockpit features two tables that can convert to one large dining table, and banquette seating for up to 8 people – great for entertaining friends and family, and cruising the east coast. Along with a hot and cold shower on the transom, the lazarette comprises insulated storage to fit refrigerator plates or Waeco portable refrigeration, fenders, ropes, and other gear.

Powered by a 550hp Cummins and Onan generator, coupled to a Twin Disc 2.1 gearbox and running through a Python drive system which has been especially designed for this range of boats, the new model requires minimal maintenance and delivers sensational performance of 19+ knots. The engine room is seriously spacious, carpeted throughout and with generous head room. For ease of access for the tender and watersports there is also a 1.5m swim platform. “After more than 30 years in the boating business, we have analysed the servicing cost of boats,” said Brett Flanagan, Director at Island Gypsy.

“Boating should be low maintenance and pleasurable and with Island Gypsy, we have sought to minimise the cost of ownership and make boating a breeze.”
