“Speed is timeless.” That’s what the sales brochure says about the Australian Iain Murray Group-designed Sydney 46. The Murray Group used tank-testing to develop the hull shape for this speedster. The hull form is relatively narrow with a broad stern and a firm turn to the bilge at the transom. There is quite a bit of overhang aft, but the bow is snubbed off. The D/L ratio is 145.1. The keel is a slightly swept fin with a pugnacious bulb. Note the depth of the “chest” of this boat around station 2.8.
…This interior is adequate and was probably kept simple to make it lighter to build. Clearly you could cruise this boat in comfort. I do like the one big head… The deck is an interesting blend of both racing and cruising considerations. There are seat backs forward and long bench seats. The twin wheels are well forward in the cockpit… Construction uses Kevlar, E-glass, PVC foam and vinylester resin. The builder offers the option of epoxy resin as an extra. Everything is vacuum-bagged. The Sydney 46 will appeal to the family who still enjoys a good weekend regatta in fast company.
Bob Perry – Sailing Magazine
The late Ian Bashford founded Bashford Boats (now known as Sydney Yachts) in the early 1980’s. The company produced one design yachts such as the J-24 and the ETCHELLS 22. The early 1990’s brought the launch of the new larger BH Boats. The first yacht off the drawing board and into production was the Sydney 41. The BH 36 was introduced some time later. Following the death of Ian Bashford in April 1996, Charles Curran and Iain Murray joined the company. The company became Bashford International and the new line was called Sydney Yachts. Since, late 1996 the company has expanded its range to include the SYDNEY 38 and, SYDNEY 32 among others. Other recent designs are the SIGNATURE 39 and SIGNATURE 47. Since 2013 Sydney Yachts are built at AD Boats in Croatia.
