- The substantial beauty of ALTAIR is apparent as one enters the pilothouse which has elegant paneled mahogany with teak and holly floor, all finished with a high gloss. Two large settees opposite one another afford eye-level views via large windows. The large unencumbered floor space and exceptional headroom make entertaining in the pilothouse a real treat. The equally spacious and elegant main/dining salon, with its uniquely high ceiling and high-gloss mahogany paneling, features L-shaped settees, table to starboard and a service bar starboard aft. The galley is separated by a service bar with leaded-glass cabinets. The interior design work was done by a noted Northwest interior designer. Guest accommodations are provided for eight guests in four comfortable staterooms, each with head and shower. The full-beam master stateroom, aft, has a queen berth, settee, built-in desk, private head with shower, TV, VCR, CD player/stereo system and two hanging lockers with indirect lighting. Two guest staterooms are located aft. Each has a double berth with storage underneath, hanging locker and ensuite head with shower. A third guest stateroom with ensuite head and shower is forward of the main salon on the starboard side. Sleeping accommodations are in an upper berth and extra wide lower berth. The crew cabin with upper/lower berths and head is all the way forward. A hatch provides access to the foredeck and utility room with clothes washer and two dryers. Besides the elegance of ALTAIR, there are the appreciated qualities of workable space, such as the stand-up engine room with large work bench and incredible storage space throughout.
