General Details

Mr Chips just finished a 5 month refit where she was entirely painted with awlgrip, had all new soft goods installed and was fitted with new digital Naiad stabilizers for a superior ride in any sea.  Truly a must see yacht!!!



Vessel Walkthrough
  Even before boarding MR CHIPS the super shiny exterior hints at her recent refit which included a full repaint (12/13). MR CHIPS may be entered from either the swim platform on a floating dock or from midship boarding gates on her main deck via the wide walk around side decks. The hydraulic swim platform holds her tender but allows easy boarding via port and starboard curved steps to the spacious Aft Deck. The Aft Deck offers both fixed and loose seating options. The Salon is entered via a sliding door. The area is very spacious due to the open plan layout including the Salon area, partial Galley bulkhead and Lower Station all the way forward. All soft good are new and chosen and installed by noted yacht designer Destry Darr. Steps forward lead down to three cabins each with its own private Head. The VIP is forward and the Master is amidship separated by a Guest Cabin. The double berth Crew Cabin is entered via the swim platform door. The cabin is just aft of the Engine Room. The Flybridge gives all weather navigation due to the hardtop and three side enclosure plus a great exterior Lounging Area.
  The Salon is entered via the centerline sliding door and appears very spacious due to the open deck plan and spacious side deck windows. Immediately to port is a U shaped Ultra Leather settee newly recovered with storage below under most of the settee. The settee seats six and has a built in end table in the aft corner. Above the end table is a curved lacquered finish cabinet with an auto light and a mirrored interior containing liquor storage. In front of the settee is a burlwood topped hi lo coffee table, 26" x 50". Table is teak and burlwood with maple inlay and a high gloss finish, new 11/13. There are hidden rope lights around the perimeter of the settee for soft night accent lighting. The forward bulkhead is mirrored with a small burlwood shelf behind the curve of the settee. Behind the settee are the three oval porthole style windows that are typical of the larger Neptunus series of motoryachts of this era. Each window has a new Roman shade and an upholstered valance. To the starboard side upon entering is the burlwood entertainment cabinet which consists of a Polaroid 26" LCD TV, a Sony DVD player and a cabinet above with a Pioneer 12 volt AM/FM/CD player, a Terrestrial TV antenna booster and a speaker volume control for the Aft Deck. In a cabinet next forward is the Raymarine Sat TV control box, plus CD and DVD storage. Next forward are two newly reupholstered occasional chairs separated by a burlwood and a lacquer finish end table that has a pullout bar storage drawer. Atop is a table lamp. Behind each chair is additional storage via four cabinet doors. The same three porthole type windows are above this area with Roman shades and valances to match those to port. Also in the Salon is a soffit type AC delivery around the perimeter of the area, a soffit type ceiling detail with rope lighting over the coffee table, 11 halogen mini spots overhead, Alpine 2 Stage stereo speakers and a newly carpeted sole.
  The Galley is next forward of the Salon. It is separated by a bulkhead to port that partially closes off the Salon just aft. The cabinets are finished in lacquer with a clear protective skin for durability. Galley equipment includes: "Golden Beach Light" granite countertops (new 11/13) Double stainless steel under mount sink w/cover Insinkerator garbage disposal Grohe removable spray faucet GE Profile burner Ceran top cook top (new 2013) GE Profile Built in under counter oven Frigidaire dishwasher Jennair trash compactor GE Profile stainless steel refrigerator GE Profile built in over stovetop w/microwave oven/broiler (9) Halogen mini spots (15) Lacquered cabinet doors Lacquered cabinet concealing a Black & Decker coffeemaker "Amtico" laminate sole (new 2013) (5) Under cabinet halogen mini spotlights (3) Overhead halogen mini spotlights Soffit w/rope lighting at the perimeter above The area to the starboard side adjacent to the Galley is a great storage area and service banquet running eight feet fore and aft. Storage includes six lacquered drawers and four cabinet doors that conceal extra dishes and Galley ware plus lots of household items. The top is burlwood and above are four framed artwork pieces. Next forward is a Pantograph side door that is very useful for loading the Galley or handling lines while running shorthanded from the lower controls. Also in this area is a central vacuum outlet, a Phantom screen for the side door, a smoke detector and two overhead halogen mini spots.
Dining Area
  Just forward of the Galley is the Dining Area.  A handy pass through from the forward bulkhead of the Galley eases food delivery but also adds visibility to the Lower Control Station to starboard.  The Dinette is to port.  The seating is U shaped Ultra Leather off the portside bulkhead on a raised platform for better visibility.  The Dinette seats up to six and has storage below many of the cushions. A pedestal table with storage in the pedestal lies in the center of the Dinette.  The burlwood trimmed table folds out to be twice its usual size for dining.  Large windows to forward and port offer plenty of natural lighting plus there are two halogen lights above.  There is extra storage forward under the windshield. The sole of this area was newly carpeted.
Lower Helm
  Next inboard is the Lower Helm area. It is compact but offers all the needed amenities for all weather cruising. The helm is centerline behind the three panel windshield. Equipment includes: Stainless steel helm wheel Northstar 961 X D GPS plotter (2) LCD MTU engine monitors Furuno LCD remote radar screen Raymarine ST60 digital depth Ramyarine ST60 digital speed Robertson AP22 autopilot control head Icom M127 VHF MTU/Detroit Diesel station activation panel MTU/Detroit Diesel electronic engine controls Fireboy engine override panel (6) Bilge pump switches w/indicator lights (3) Digital bile pump counters (3) Windshield wiper controls w/washers Start/stop buttons KVH Tracphone handset Bennett trim tab controls Sidepower integrated bow & stern thruster controls ACR RCL 100 searchlight controls Cabinet for manuals Ritchie 6” Powerdamp magnetic compass Acrylic plexiglass new corners for lower windshields
  The Companionway to the accommodations is to starboard opposite the Lower Station all the way forward on the main deck. There are six steps to the first landing leading forward to the VIP, two more to the Guest Cabin to port and two more to the Master Cabin leading aft. Two steps down from the top are two doors to the very efficiently designed Neptunus electrical panel.  Just prior to entering the Master is the walk in Laundry Room with a separate Kenmore washer and dryer. Each of the ten steps has its own LED step light and is newly carpeted.
Laundry Room
  Opposite the Guest/Day Head in the Main Companionway and accessed by a burlwood door is a walk in Laundry Room with a Kenmore dryer and a Kenmore washer.  The sole of this area is oak laminate.  Four storage cabinets offer abundant storage with plenty of lighting overhead.
VIP Suite
  All the way forward is the VIP Suite with a centerline queen size berth with rope lighting and two drawers beneath the berth.  A newly upholstered headboard with valance type AC delivery is above the berth.  Burled countertops port and starboard at the level of the berth serve as nightstands.  Above each countertop is an opening stainless steel porthole covered by new drapes.  Also in this area are stereo speakers and rope lighting behind the valance.  Above this area to port are seven lacquered finish cabinets with a brass reading light most forward.  Two newly carpeted steps in the hull side lead up to the berth on both the port and starboard side.
