Vessel Walk Through

Entry to the cockpit is made via the extended transom swim platform or from the steps on the port and starboard gunnels. The cockpit is outfitted with a large U-shaped seating area with removable dinette table and wet bar with ice-maker, new 32 inch flat screen plasma TV, 

Moving forward to the helm area,  (with optional teak flooring,) you find a large Lshaped lounge area to port and the helm to starboard. The air conditioned helm area has a unique seat with dual captain's chairs set on a swivel that pivots to allow the helm seat to be used for additional cockpit seating.   

Forward along the wide side walkways to the bow is a large dual sun-pad complete with drink holders.

Stepping down the solid teak steps into the salon, the large cabin is well appointed with dark cherry cabinetry that is offset by the cream colored sofa and beautiful Avonite counter-tops. Three large windows port and starboard as well as a large overhead hatch allow in natural light and create an open air feeling. The plush sofa to starboard is L-shaped and features a pull out bed, Hi-Lo dinette table and large ottoman.  The entertainment center includes a New 32" flat screen TV, DVD player, SAT TV link, and Bose surround sound system.  There are plenty of storage areas overhead, beneath the floors, in the sofa and under the entertainment center.

The galley to port has wood flooring, U-shaped counter-top, and plenty of storage for all your provisions.Two new spare propellers are mounted and stored under the galley floor. 

The mid-cabin VIP stateroom features a full en-suite head with sink, vanity, head and shower. The separate head and shower are in their own areas with a door so someone could be using the vanity while another can be showering or using the head at the same time. The berth can be separated to create twin bunks or left together to form a large double bed, depending on the guests. The mid cabin also has an independent A/C zone, washer/dryer combo, nightstand and full entertainment system.

The master stateroom forward offers a full-size island style bed with innerspring mattress, dual hanging lockers, TV entertainment system, wood floor and en-suite head.  The head layout is noteworthy here because it features a shower in its own area to starboard and a vanity and head in its own area to port. These areas are made totally private within the master stateroom via a sliding door from the salon.

 The dinghy davit system  allows for easy launch and retrieval of the new tender by the way of a very innovative and dependable chock and roller system. Very convenient and very reliable, (without all of the maintenance and expense of a hydraulic lift.) It has sliding chocks on the extended platform that allows one to slide the tender out over the water freeing up the usage of the platform. Tender is loaded from the port side of the platform by a removable roller system and a 12 Volt winch that stores neatly out of the way when not in use.
