Vessel Walkthrough

As you step onto the “Thomanator” you can’t help but see how expansive she is with its 14’2” beam and 72 square feet of cockpit space. Equipped with an in-deck fishbox, cooler and livewell, it gives you more room to fight fish or entertain.  To starboard is a wet bar, bait prep and tackle storage drawers.  Also has a leaning post with 4 rocket launchers. Up top is a large tuna tower with seating for 3 adults and full control of the boat

Stepping up onto the bridge, to port is a very large and comfortable settee with a custom cover and plenty of storage underneath. To starboard is the helm with a two person captain’s seat that offers great visibility and an array of instruments for easy engine monitoring.

Opening the tinted sliding door, the complete galley is to port with teak and holly sole floor, clean white cabinetry with beautiful teak trim. There is plenty of natural light from the port windows and hatches throughout the boat.

The salon is to starboard with a large U-shaped leather sofa that converts to a double bed and also the backs can be raised to make a single Pullman bunk. The swivel 15” flat screen TV is wired into the stereo system for listening through the speakers and playing DVD’s.

Walking forward to port is the large head with a walk-in shower with seat and a full size vanity with lots of storage and a private entrance from the master stateroom.  The master stateroom has a centerline queen size walk around bed with abundant storage underneath and hanging lockers on each side.
