The Release 46 is available in three different configurations: Convertible, Express and Walk-Around, each with a distinctive benefit for her owners. Those who prefer to troll will most likely gravitate toward either the traditional Convertible, with her flybridge control station and spacious salon belowdecks or the Express with both upper and lower control stations, while those who chase big fish on light tackle or drift fish for sails or swords will find the Walk-Around the perfect vessel for those pursuits.

No matter which design, the Release 46 brings with it a competitive pedigree and a custom boatbuilder’s touch. Nothing else on the water even comes close.

And while the Release 46 is an adept cruiser, she’s also designed to fish, and fish hard. With input from some of the finest captains and anglers from the four corners of the sportfishing world, the Release 46 will find herself just as comfortable trolling in the deep blue Pacific off Kona, drifting for swords and sails within sight of the Miami skyline or chasing giant bluefin tuna off Cape Cod. The professional’s touch is everywhere: The outriggers angle perfectly to the tip of the transom. The covering boards of the gunwales are at the perfect height. Even the tackle center and fishboxes are placed in exactly the right spot. She’s all set to conquer the world’s toughest gamefish.

Design and Construction

Utilizing the finest in modern construction techniques, the Release 46 is both light and incredibly strong. These boats are meant to fish hard in some of the world’s most remote destinations, so safety and reliability are among the chief considerations. The hull consists of ISO/NPG gelcoat, vinylester resins and multi-directional fabrics all sandwiching Airex coring. All of this is vacuum infused, resulting in an optimal resin to cloth ratio. A layer carbon fiber is added to the molded string system for added stiffness. Whether the choice is the Convertible, Walk-Around or Express layout, you can be assured of receiving a vessel that’s built to the highest standards of construction, using the finest in materials and craftsmanship.


Just because the Release 46 is designed to fish didn’t mean her designers took any shortcuts with luxury. Far from it in fact; because Release Boatworks is a fully custom builder, prospective owners have the choice of fabrics and soft goods belowdecks, making her a truly unique work of art. Over six feet of headroom in each model adds to the airy feel below, while the interior arrangements make the most of every available square foot. She’s unlike anything else out there today.
