The cockpit is spacious and very safe for passages, ideal for entertaining or just chilling out !!!!

She represents and excellent example of an offshore boat that is an ideal bluewater boat, but also great as a livaboard or family getaway.



The interior spaces of this yacht are finished to the highest standard in solid teak and has one of the most comfortable and roomy cabins in this size vessel.  The cabin soles are all teak and holly over plywood, with shower having a mosaic tiled floor. 

There is excellent ventilation with 5 Bowmar ocean deckhatches, and 7 stainless opening ports (with screens).  The over head is paneled and easily removable for maintainance.  The whole boat is set up for offshore use with plenty of solid handholds, and fiddles in the galley.  All lockers have solid teak louvered doors and the hanging lockers have automatic lights all are teak lined.  The whole vessel has excellent natural light.

Forward there is a self draining anchor locker.  Aft of this is the master cabin.  This features a queen bed that can be extended out to a king.  There is plenty of storage with a locker at the foot of the bed, 2 cupboards, 3 drawers and a hanging locker, in addition there is a bookshelf on the portside.  Under the berth are two large storage areas.  Various reading lights and a fan. The cabin has access to the head (it can also be accessed from the salon).

Aft is the main salon.  This is a very comfortable roomy area.  On the port side is a bench sofa which opens to a large seaberth.  The nav table is at the end of this sofa.  On the starboard is an oval table with storage under. The salon has ample cupboard and shelf space (inc bottle storage).  There is also a flat screen tv, dvd,and stereo, ample lighting and fans.

The gallery features a three burner stove with oven and broiler, oversized ice box, double sinks with pressure and manual faucets, and plenty of storage for dry goods and equipment.

The cockpit is very comfortable and safe for offshore use, with custom cushions, barbecue, stainless binnacle, with autopilot and navigation equipment, stainless rails and custom ladder. The chartplotter can be moved to a separate location the cockpit for passage use.

The deck is very easy to work on with plenty of hand holds, 4 stainless dorade vents, liferaft, dingy and motor  etc.

The electrical and plumbing installation on this boat is to a very high standard, all wires are immaculately run from the main ac/dc panel, with a sub panel for the nav/cockpit area. All plumbing is  well installed piping with heavy duty pumps etc.

In 2007 the whole of the bottom was stripped, the hull was dried out and refinished  with 4 coats 2000e expoxy barrier then 2 coats Interlux antifouling, this was all professionally done with no expense spared.
