Invincible 46 Pilothouse: 2023 Boat Buyers Guide

The 46 Pilothouse is built for multiday fishing trips.

When one world-traveling angler tired of experiencing boats that weren’t tough enough, fast enough or smooth enough for serious anglers, he decided to build one himself.

Invincible enlisted the expertise of renowned naval architect Michael Peters, and became the first to employ the Stepped-Vee Ventilated Tunnel hull, which has become famous for high performance, smooth ride and reliable handling. 

In the exciting decades since, in single-hull and in catamaran designs created in partnership with world-authority naval architects Morrelli & Melvin, Invincible has become synonymous with rugged, athletic and hard-fishing boats.

Invincible 46 Pilothouse

Invincible made big-cat news when it introduced its 46 Catamaran center-console in 2020. Now those patented-design catamaran hulls comprise the base of the first-ever production pilothouse catamaran, the 46 Pilothouse. 

Designed by Invincible senior vice president of design Scott Wood, the new boat provides an exciting ride on a patented Morrelli & Melvin hybrid semi-asymmetrical catamaran design that offers the softest ride in chop, and turns crisply—without awkward heeling. It offers the range, performance and 360-degree fishability of its CC sibling, plus sport-fisher-level sleeping space and weather-defying comfort within its -innovative two-berth pilothouse.

The climate-controlled interior houses a roomy head compartment and full-feature helm station. A power window at the rear of the pilothouse raises and lowers as desired for air movement or communication.

Fishing options include outriggers, rod holders in several configurations, livewell sea-chest pumps, clear lid for the in-floor livewell, electric-reel outlets, and built-in tuna tube. 

Other options include cockpit prep station, leaning-post chill plate, foldout storage lockers, and full coaming bolsters. Battery-system upgrades are available, as is a battery charger with galvanic isolator.

Editor Says

The new 46 Pilothouse features one sleeping berth located forward and another that can be converted from the U-shaped settee. There’s also a roomy head compartment and a well-appointed helm station—all climate-controlled for the protection and comfort of the crew on multiday trips. -Jim Hendricks, Staff Editor Boating and Fishing Group
