CHEERS 46 is a popular Benetti VELOCE 140’ fast displacement yacht. The VELOCE model has been well-received by the buying community as she offers five vast outdoor entertaining areas, not found on significantly larger yachts. These include a massive flybridge/sundeck (largest in her class), a spacious covered dining area aft of the skylounge and a large foredeck entertaining area, complete with pool. In addition to the sundeck and foredeck spaces, she offers a beach club aft and a large covered aft deck. CHEERS 46 celebrates a very high spec and excellent oversight throughout her build. All of this in a vessel that can cruise at up to 22kts. With five staterooms, CHEERS 46 is super clean, lightly used and ready for adventures with a new owner.

Entering from starboard amidships through double doors, one will reach a formal foyer with beautiful dark Tabu wood finished floors. The wood package throughout the boat is Kato, a tropical African wood with a light grey stain.
The lobby area gives access down to the five staterooms below, up to the skylounge deck, forward to the gym/master stateroom area or aft to the main salon. In this area there is also a well-appointed day head.
Moving aft from the foyer one will enter the formal dining area. The dining table can be set to accommodate 10-12 guests as needed. Outboard to port and starboard are double opening doors, giving an open and panoramic vista while dining at anchor.
The main salon, aft, is appointed with beautiful furnishings in an L-shaped settee arrangement where two comfortable designer chairs, an end table, and a coffee table finish this area off nicely. The main salon and dining area have ample storage with built-in serving areas. Further aft through large sliding glass aft deck doors is the covered aft deck. The aft deck features a large built-in settee with two large chairs and tables. This area is also used as an entry point when using the passarelle during stern to docking.
From the aft deck, a set of stairs on either side lead down to a spacious beach club with formal bar, umbrella’s and drop in shower. The transom folds down, making a vast swim platform and bathing area with easy access to the beach club and the water for swimming or water sports.
Forward of the beach club there is a larger athwartship tender garage that houses a Williams 445 Diesel-jet tender, two Sea Doo jet skis, dive compressor and miscellaneous water toys.
Opposite the entry lobby, to port is the state-of-the-art galley with professional appliances, excellent counter space, storage and refrigeration. There is plenty of light with the larger windows in the galley, perfect viewing while underway or at the dock. The galley has doors at both entrances that can be closed to keep the noise and smells from entering other areas of the vessel. There is a large serving pantry between the galley and formal dining for ease of serving and clean up. Separate crew entry to the main deck.
Further forward is the on-deck full-beam master that has been converted into a state of the art gymnasium. This space can easily be converted back to a full-beam master with king bed, his/her baths, ample storage and walk-in closet. At present, the gym has top performing equipment, TV and entertainment, ample air conditioning and a fold down open terrace. The photo layout within shows both present configuration and the conversion layout to a normal master cabin. If converted back, this would make for a highly unusual and very attractive six stateroom layout.
Mid-ship a beautifully appointed staircase leads down to the five guest staterooms. The full-beam master is found forward with a king sized berth, settee and hanging closet to starboard and a large bath to port. There are four additional guest cabins: two large VIP guest cabins with queen berths, plus two twin cabins. All cabins have en suite, the best in entertainment systems and well-appointed décor with ample storage.
From the formal foyer one will go up a beautifully appointed staircase to the upper landing that will take one aft to the sky lounge or forward to the pilothouse. The pilothouse has state-of-the-art navigation equipment and offers excellent visibility while cruising. One can reach the spacious captain’s cabin from this area.
The bow entertainment area can be reached from the side deck or pilothouse doors. Once there one will find a spacious and beautiful sitting and sunning area with a large pool. This area can also be covered with awning to give shade.
Aft from the upper landing, one enters the skylounge where you are surrounded by natural light from the large windows. There is a walk up bar with a refrigerator and cold storage to port. To starboard is a U-shaped sitting area with three settees, two chairs, coffee table and end tables. This area is a very comfortable place to entertain, watch a movie or just sit with family and friends to talk. There is also a well-appointed day head on this deck.
Moving aft from the skylounge through the large double sliding doors, one will enter the upper aft deck. There is a beautiful built-in service area, a square, under cover table with seating for up to 16 for dining outside and two large loose furniture settees for lounging. The sun deck can be accessed from this area by going up a built-in set of stairs. Reaching the sun deck, one will find a huge area that offers a large bar with four bar stools and a U-shaped sitting area that allows one to be in the sun or shade with an auto opening sun roof. Aft on the sun deck there is a large Jacuzzi and sun pads. Forward on the sun deck one will find four stools looking forward that offer awesome views of the water and harbor entrances when cruising.
There are very few vessels in this size range that combine the volume, outdoor entertaining areas and the performance, all for considerably less than her competition.
