2006 Dolphin 460 now for sale.
Three Sixty Blue is a ﬁne example of a limited number of Dolphin 460 catamarans designed by veteran naval architect Philippe Pouvreau and built to ABYC standards in Aracaju, Brazil.
Dolphins represent an excellent balance of safety, comfort, performance and styling. Their hulls are constructed of hand-laid, vacuum-bagged ﬁberglass using vinyl ester resin over Divinicell foam cores. The bottom of each hull is solid ﬁberglass so she can be beached without damage.
There are two water-tight compartments in each hull and the retractable dagger boards are trunked in crash boxes to prevent water incursion in the event of a hard grounding. The Sail Drives are protected by sacriﬁcial mini keels.
Dolphins feature graduated, ﬂared hulls and extended transoms to handle cruising payloads. The retractable dagger boards aid in pointing, shoal draft sailing and reducing drag off the wind. Wide side decks enhance safety and the bulkhead helm station offers 360 degree, four corner visibility when docking or sailing.
The vertical salon windows help reduce cabin heat and also offer 360 degree visibility making piloting, with the use of an autopilot remote, possible from the comfort and safety of the cabin in inclement weather.
Unique to Three Sixty Blue is a hard top section with opening hatch in the Bimini top over the helm station for enhanced weather protection and good view of sails while trimming. Crystal clear, semi-rigid, opening, Makralon windshields connect the Bimini Top to the cabin roof providing an excellent shelter from wind, rain and spray.
Also unique to Three Sixty Blue is an L-shaped salon seating arrangement, in lieu of the standard, oval-shaped settee, making for a more comfortable conﬁguration for lounging and off-watch napping.
Three Sixty Blue is the only Dolphin 460 presently equipped with a Leisure Furl, in-boom mainsail furling system which, along with a primary electric winch, greatly simpliﬁes sail raising, lowering, reeﬁng and stowing.
Three Sixty Blue’s current owners, Mark and Anne, are experienced blue water cruisers and have owned a variety of performance-oriented yachts for over 30 years. They have maintained the yacht to a very high standard, and made many signiﬁcant improvements that reﬂect a real pride in ownership.
Family responsibilities at home necessitate closing the current chapter on their multi-year sailing adventure, and are now seeking new owners who will beneﬁt from all of the yacht’s ﬁne qualities as they set out in search of their own secluded anchorages and palm tree covered islands.
