Vessel Walkthrough

There is a forward guest stateroom with centerline queen berth and an entrance on port to the head.  Moving aft and down the companionway, there is another entrance to the port head, followed by a built in washer/dryer (upper) and a 2 drawer Sub Zero freezer below.  The companionway and staterooms are fitted with “Whisper Walls”.  Next aft on port is the custom built- in office (in lieu of a third stateroom).  The owners have designed 2 “portable” berths (portable…that fit in the office) for the grandchildren.  On starboard is the mid-ship master stateroom with queen berth.  There is a private head with stall shower and marbleized floor tiles…including Corian countertop with inlaid teak trim.  There is custom selected wallpaper and the toilets are your choice of freshwater or saltwater-flush with keyed overboard discharge.  Continuing aft and up three stairs, you enter the salon.  On the starboard side is the galley with Corian countertops and comfortable stools.  On the port side, is a U-shaped settee with a Corian tabletop and new upholstery.  The flooring under the dinette is even matching Corian.   Just aft on the port side is the custom built in Sub Zero wine cooler, KitchenAid Flow Thru icemaker, “charger” drawer.  The ship’s electrical panel is above the wine cooler.  Across on starboard is the L shaped settee (storage under) and custom built coffee table.  There are bar stools at the galley counter upholstered to match the dinette.

Third Stateroom

The 53 Cavileer was designed in a three stateroom layout.  When ordering this one, the owners had several areas of the boat customized to suit their needs.  One nifty customization was the conversion (at build time) of the third stateroom to an office.  Look at the photos and you will agree.  There is ample desktop (Corian) space fitted with a slide out keyboard…with a monitor flush mounted in the bulkhead.  Also mounted in the bulkhead is a Furuno3D GPS, redundant readouts for depth, compass, Icom VHF, and the KVH trac phone.   The boat has Telular to Shakespeare Cell and broadband…and has a Verizon chip which can be programmed to your phone number.  Filing cabinets are built-in under the desk area and the wraparound desktop ends at a small built in upholstered seat for the occasional visitor.  The seating is upholstered in blue leather.  On the forward bulkhead is a hanging locker.  To complete the uniqueness of this area, the owners designed a privacy curtain and two upholstered, portable bunks (for their grandchildren) which stow away easily in the huge compartment under the helm.
