Additional Descriptions


Interior teak is in great condition throughout as is the teak and holly sole. Nine opening ports and two large overhead hatches provide great light and ventilation. Four dorades add to the level of airflow. Finally, there are eight circulating fans aboard, all individually controlled and four new in 2017.

The forward stateroom is a V-berth with teak cabinets port and starboard. An open shelf above the cabinets provides additional storage. Full head and shower are to port and private to the salon, macerator and Y valve for overboard discharge.  There is a chain locker forward, modified feed to the chain locker so you will not have to deal with chain piling.

Bose speakers in the salon, external cockpit speakers w remote control. A flat screen TV is mounted to starboard opposite the dinette. The main salon has a large U-shaped

dinette to port. A custom salon table with beefy tool storage drawers adds to the practicality of the layout. Teak cabinet and open shelves are outboard. To starboard is a queen-sized Pullman berth that will serve the off watch crew well. Three deep drawers and open cubbyholes below the Pullman berth provide ample storage. Overhead is a beautiful butterfly hatch with tinted glass. Continuing starboard aft is a tall locker with

counter space on top with an enclosed cupboard outboard. Here you will find ALL the manuals for about ALL the equipment aboard. A well- designed nav station with a 40-

inch wide chart table with two large chart drawers and additional cabinets below.

The Spectra water maker is installed between the quarter berth and below the nav station. A quarter berth follows with continuous teak cabinets outboard and an opening port to the cockpit. The U-shaped galley is to port. Engine access is through the quarter berth and through the removable companionway steps. Dickson Marine diesel heater mounted forward in salon was new in 2017.
