Additional Descriptions


“Pompano” has been meticulously maintained, reflecting the owner’s pride in ownership. She is easily boarded either by stern swim platform or port or starboard access steps. Her large cockpit offers a ladder to the bridge and double wood and glass doors to enter the salon. She has a hard top covered cockpit, full covered side decks and Portuguese bulkhead. Side decks and cockpit are teak; and forward decking and flybridge is non-skid. Once in the salon one notices its ample, comfortable design and bright teak paneling.  Window coverings are solid wood blinds; and flooring is parquet.

Galley is u-shaped and forward of the salon on portside with considerable storage and new granite counter-tops.   The pilothouse is accessed four steps up from the salon and galley area. One may continue to the flybridge via ten lighted steps up from the pilothouse. Staterooms are forward of the galley via a curving stairway from the galley area. The flybridge is accessed either outside by ladder from the cockpit or inside from the pilothouse.
