General Walk-through.

Starting all the way aft is the cockpit which is big enough for several deck chairs and is great for line handling and even includes a stern windlass. Walking forward through the slider is the super-sized full beam salon where you'll enjoy panoramic views through tinted windows. There is a separate day head, wet bar area, couch, two chairs, table and even a piano! The spiral stairwell in the salon leads down to the three staterooms below.

The master stateroom is aft and is also a full beam design with two large separate heads, one with a bathtub and one with a shower stall. The master stateroom also features two cedar-lined closets and tons of drawer space along with drawers under the King size walk-around bed.

The VIP guest stateroom is to port and features a Queen-size walk-around bed with storage draws underneath along with built-in nightstands with drawers on each side. There is also a cedar-lined closet and private head with shower stall.

The guest stateroom is to starboard and offers split bunks with storage underneath along with a closet. It too has its own private head with shower stall.

There is also a Frigidaire stackable washer and dryer in the companionway between the staterooms. Note also that most of the faucets and showerheads in the boat have been updated to new Kohler brand faucets and there have been many other interior improvements, such as custom draperies, redecorated crew area, and new wallpaper in guest stateroom. 

Back up on the main deck and going forward of the salon is the pilot house. There are two pilot house doors giving quick and easy access to the bow from either port or starboard. The visibility is great and the helm area is large and laid out nicely. There is a large jump seat with storage drawers underneath for charts, lifejackets, etc, a Gorgeous ship's wheel and a beautiful teak & holly sole. Most of the electronics on the boat are original but in good working condition.

Forward of the helm area is the galley. The galley is a long wrap-around design and offers tile floors, a full-size Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer, GE microwave oven, 4 burner electric stove top and oven, Bosch dishwasher, garbage disposal and an updated two-sided stainless sink with Kohler pull-out faucet. There is an absolute ton of counter space and cupboards and drawers throughout.

Forward of the galley is the dining room. Again the big windows offer a great view! There is a glass dining table with 8 comfortable chairs along with cabinets that have secure storage for plates, glasses and silverware.

Forward and down from the dining room is the crew quarters galley complete with refrigerator, stove, U-shape dinette, sink and TV. The captain's berth is across form the dinette and there are two upper and lower bunks for the crew forward for a total of 3 single berths. There is a crew head and separate shower forward as well as storage and chain locker access.

Lastly, on this level is the bulkhead door giving access to the engine room. There is near stand-up clearance in the engine room and there is plenty of room to move around and access most of the mechanicals easily. The mains are inboard and there are two Northern Lights 35KW generators, one on both outboard sides of the mains.

Back up in the pilot house is the stairwell access to the enormous bridge deck. There is enough wrap-around seating on the bridge to accommodate all of your family and friends and maybe even all of their families and friends-It's that BIG!! There are two captain's chairs, a sink, a Jenn Air electric grill, and a crane davit for a tender on the aft section of the bridge. Note also a new bimini top and newer upholstered seat cushions for the bridge and forward deck bench seating.
