We have known the seller and the vessel since she was a glint in the current and original owner’s eye. From her IMRON paint to her almost sublimely comfortable and tasteful interior she offers a visual and practical delight. Please review the Virtual Tour for a current eye view of her existing interior. Yard work has always been handled by Cable Marine since A’Volonte’s launching. This has permitted a consistent follow up of maintenance throughout the life of the vessel. A professional crew has been aboard throughout this ownership. A complete change in life style by the seller makes this excellent acquisition possible. Easily shown on a quiet canal in the unique town of Punta Gorda, Florida located almost mid-way between Sarasota and Ft. Myers international airports. Courtesy showings shown at any time by appointment.
A’Volonte has proven her mettle both off shore and as a versatile vessel stationed on the West Coast of Florida for this the original owner. Her innumerable custom features as listed below have made her a most successful vessel. Low hours and superb operating systems guarantee, with proper care, several generations of good service for the next owner.
A’Volonte accommodates the increasingly popular new trend in yachting towards more economical overall operations for yachts. She can satisfy whether it be twenty knots off shore or easing along during a lovely sunset. We invite you to join us for an inspection in Punta Gorda, Florida between Sarasota and Ft. Myers. A’ Volonte will not disappoint you.
- Vessel Walkthrough
- All the way aft, there is a hydraulic TNT platform lift with aluminum chocks to support a 14’ outboard skiff. Comfortable stairs rise from the platform on port and starboard sides for ease of access to the main deck. On the aft deck there is a built up lovely teak table that can seat twelve served by varnished teak folding chairs and cushions. On the starboard side there is another comfortable stairway leading from the aft deck to the bridge deck. On the bridge deck there is ample table and seating capacity for lovely relaxing or al fresco dining. On the foredeck there are very commodious lounging cushions for up to ten people. Spacious side decks serve full length on both sides of the vessel. Going through large strong sliding doors you enter the main salon. Within the salon the decorators have studiously avoided the bus terminal feeling of long couches and benches. In their place he has established comfortable smaller gathering chairs, cocktail table, lovely bar area and a dining salon area forward within the salon. Forward in the main salon is the dining area followed by an informal galley area w which in turn moving forward is a breakfast room very well lit with natural light and accommodations for eight at one sitting. Continuing forward and below are the crew quarters with one double bed stateroom and one upper and lower. This area is served by a full bath along with a comfortable lounge area including a stand alone compact teak topped dining table. Going forward and below of the forward section of the main salon is a very commodious gently spirally stairway entering into the stateroom area. Aft in this area is a full width owner’s stateroom with oversize king bed, more than ample storage space plus his and hers baths including a bidet, separated by a centerline shower. Moving forward from the master stateroom on the port side is the VIP double stateroom with queen size bed, full bath and very large flat screen TV. The starboard stateroom is for berthing and is set up to use as an office away from home. The office area includes a very commodious desk area along with a retractable upper and lower single berth and full en suite bath. Returning to the main deck you ascend from the main deck to another gently curving stairway to the combined pilot house and sky lounge. Fortunately the sky lounge has a full service bath which can save a considerable amount of walking. The command center is the full width forward of the sky lounge with complete center line controls. In addition there are full operating wing controls on both port and starboard sides of the bridge. All the way aft in the sky lounge is a sliding door opening onto a lovely raised same level deck lounge ideal for luncheons or evening cocktails. This area is also served from the main deck to permit service without passing through the pilot house to get to this area.

- Electronics and Navigation
- Although some of the electronics are functional it is suggested that the buyer provide his own latest instruments that will more perfectly suit his use of the vessel.
- Luxurious cushions are furnished throughout the exterior of the vessel including the furnishings on the main deck, bridge deck and the forward lounge spaces. A one ton highly polished stainless steel hydraulic crane serves the aft deck area. Port and starboard boarding ladders are recessed into the aft section of the hull completely hidden within the hull when recessed. They are easily pulled from their resting area and relayed to the dock. There is a balancing system that automatically raises and lowers the angle of the stairway to accommodate tidal changes. The mast will accommodate a pair of enclosed radar antennas and there is extra space for added antennae if needed. The anchor windlass can accommodate two highly polished stainless steel plow anchors immediately available at the bow. It should be noted that by employing the flexibility of the vertically activated one metric ton dinghy platform the use of a cumbersome pasarelle can be avoided. The positioning of the wing controls on both sides of the vessel are such that the operator of the vessel can see the vertical topsides and the dock at the same time while maneuvering. The bottom was prepared and repainted with Barnacle Buster anti fouling paint in July 2013. That material has proven to be of superb service with this vessel.
- Dinghy All wall art and three dimensional art pieces
- During a boat show in Ft. Lauderdale during hurricane Wilma a vessel was driven into the stern of A’ Volonte and caused damage to that area. That repair was totally corrected by Cable Marine in Ft. Lauderdale. All yard maintenance and repair work on the vessel has been done by Cable throughout its life. In 2003 there was raw water taken primarily into the engine room. The main electrical circuits were not affected. All residual repairs of a mechanical and cosmetic nature were accomplished under strict insurance supervision and again accomplished by Cable Marine.
