The Salona 46 - a game changer in the world of sailing

The Salona 46 - a game changer in the world of sailing

For its world premiere, this beautiful sailboat showcased at the Southampton Boat Show in September 2021. The reviews received were highly positive and we can see why.

The most distinguishing features of the Salona 46 is its unique electric propulsion system with two Oceanvolt electric motors enabling easy close quarter manoeuvring, and the hydro-generation system, putting power back into the battery banks whilst sailing.

Stylish attention to detail, with exquisite teak floors and fittings, is found throughout this magnificent vessel. Salona collaborated with the J&J design team and utilised feedback from their customers raising the standards of avante-garde luxury yacht design. They offer a high level of customisation to suit each owner's unique sailing experience and desires.

World leaders have manufactured the Salona 46's high quality equipment and the functionality and sleek allure of this dynamic model are integrated into a complete whole that matches the superb Salona style just perfectly. All in all this is a perfect yacht to charter providing easy sailing in comfort and style.



What sailors will love about the exterior of this sailboat

It possesses a vast cockpit space sporting twin helms and the latest B&G navigation equipment.

Simply press a switch and an electrically retractable bathing platform makes it easy to plunge into the sea. The ample width of side decks provides a generous walk around space. A foldable table sits in the middle of the cockpit area and powerful winches feed into the cockpit. Deep anchor and fender lockers are positioned in the bow.

Plush marine interiors to recline into

The cabin sports top quality fittings and designer finishes in leather and wood. The interior is airy with abundant light streaming through the rectangular portholes, and handrails run across the entire length of the space.

The galley has a 3-burner stove with a closing top flap, two fridge units and we loved the fold-out dining table seating up to 10 people. A foldaway chart table, control panel and battery monitors and instrumentation are streamlined into their surroundings. High tech sailing at its best!

The 4-cabin layout has two cabins fore and two cabins aft with shared bathrooms. Manual toilets can be used electrically. The 3-cabin layout's forward main cabin has a bathroom en-suite and two big berths aft. Super rectangular portholes on each side of the bed enable you to watch the waves slapping the sides of the boat as you relax.

Cabins are spacious and super comfy with great standing height, snug king-size beds and loads of cupboard space plus storage lockers under the beds. The whole setup has been well thought out with modular units, plenty of plug sockets and fitted with heating.

The future of sailing

Electric motors are absolutely quiet and are set up under each of the aft berths' beds. They need far less maintenance than standard engines. A well-insulated Yanmar engine is positioned under the companionway.

Ultra modern construction techniques using multi-axial glass and carbon fibres, with an internal steel frame supporting the keel and mast, create a strong yet light structure offering the ultimate in sailing performance. The Salona 46 is functional and at the same time attractively elegant.

Yachtsmen chartering the Salona 46 have found it an absolute pleasure to sail. Try it and ease into a new way of sailing.

Review of the Salona 46 sailing yacht

Electric sailing pioneers and influencers, Dan and Kika, who have been sailing around the world on their all-electric sailboat, Uma, for seven years, and Graham Balch of Green Yachts, embarked upon a five-day cruising journey around the islands of Croatia to evaluate the Salona 46.

They sailed in various weather conditions and concluded with favourable reviews quoting the Salona 46 as being the "next generation electric boat" and, with its balanced rudders and twin motors, "it's so smooth and easy to sail and so easy to manoeuvre, it helps people enjoy sailing".

Graham stated that it's rare to find a cruising boat of its size with such remarkable sailing performance and speed. He commented further: "It unties you from the infrastructure that you feel dependant on with other boats. After three or four hours of sailing you've put energy back into the battery bank so it becomes sustainable for living off the grid."
