Broker Description

Sotaliais a branch of the Kelly Peterson 46 tree. This very well know design from Doug Peterson was first seen in the KP 44. The design was stretched to 46 and taken over by Formosa Yachts after design royalties not being paid to the designer. Formosa Yachts built this design for four years and the product was not nearly as good as the boats overseen by Jack Kelly. In 1984, Australian, Ron Hillier took over production using the same molds and built the 46 as the Sprindrift 46. The SPINDRIFT 46 was built by Formosa Yachts using the same molds that built the FORMOSA 46. (1980-1984). R. Hillier, of Brisbane Australia, oversaw the building of this yacht which was to be sold in the US for Bristol yachts of Newport Beach CA. For the Australian market, they were called the HILLIER/PETERSON 46. Hillier ran afoul of designer Doug Peterson who filed a law suit. Hillier died and the suit was shelved.These boats were in the same quality level as the KP 46 and thus have retained a higher value than a regular Formosa 46 Features include: Fresh bottom job in Jan 2016 Spectra watermaker Recent electronics Powerful 90 hp diesel engine Dinghy and outboard. Extra sails
