Additional Descriptions


The layout on SOLAR WIND is well thought out. Teak is used through out, with teak and holly floorboards. The upholstery is luxurious blue fabric in the main salon. There is good light and ventilation. Spending time below, it is hard to believe that you are aboard a 35 footer with a good balance of interior accommodations, storage and creature comforts. 

Aft and to port is a large single quarter berth. This is an enclosed cabin with hanging locker and bench seat. There is a port that opens into the cockpit and a book shelf. 

Just forward of the aft quarterberth cabin is a full sized, sit down, forward facing navigation station. The teak table lifts with storage under. The breaker switches are on the aft bulkhead behind the seat. There is book and manual storage to port and additional cabinet storage beneath the table and storage under the contoured seat. 

Across from the nav table to starboard is the u-shaped galley and forward of the nav and galley is the main salon. In the salon to port is a straight settee. The leather upholstery is blue. There is a cut out to stick your feet in under the chart table to make this a full length berth. Opposite to starboard is a U-shaped settee with a dining table and fold out leafs. There is seating for 4 at this settee. There is storage behind the seat backs of both settees. Above both settees and outboard is a bookshelf set between two cabinets. In the pass through from the salon to the forward stateroom is a hanging locker with cabinet beneath.
