Entering from the seakindly cockpit and down the easily accessed companionway ladder the first things seen are beautiful teak bulkheads with white headliner and a new teak and holly sole with opening floor hatches to easily access tanks and the bilge. Starting immediately to starboard you first find the flip top navigation desk with pull out padded swivel stool followed by a long settee with cabinets and storage above, behind and below. Moving forward is the private guest stateroom with over/under Pullman berths to starboard, storage cabinets, hanging locker and access to the anchor locker. Next aft to port is the private guest head with vanity, head and shower plus ample storage cabinetry. Moving aft to port find a curved settee with multiple storage cabinets, storage shelves and an oval teak dining table followed by the well insulated top loading freezer and top & front loading refrigerator compartments. Further aft is the walk-thru galley with counter space and large SS sink over the engine access doors and stove with more counter space and ample cabinetry on the port side. From the galley moving aft is the master head with vanity, head, cabinetry and separate shower and private entry into the master stateroom . The master offers an athwartship queen berth with pillow top mattress, bench seating in front of the berth with storage under, Hanging lockers, shelves, cabinets, aft windows and an overhead hatch. Truly an inviting, cozy, romantic master stateroom! From the starboard side of the stateroom you move forward to find a  double sea berth outboard over storage cabinetry and more engine room access doors to port.  Few, if any 42' boats will have the storage capability of this Vagabond 42'!

Brokers Comments
This refurbished 42 ketch is well equipped and has an exceptional interior with warm teak cabinets and bulkheads, abundant storage capacity, and a new teak & holly sole. Her fuel tanks have been replaced with new aluminum tanks, the standing rigging was replaced in 2002 and the teak decks show in good condition. Designed for blue water passages her 4 sails allow for multiple sail configurations to handle any weather or sea conditions. Newer modern electronics have been installed including Garmin autopilot, chartplotter and wind machine all located in the cockpit and protected by a full cockpit enclosure with Isenglass and screens. The original diesel was replaced in 2000 by a 76 hp Yanmar diesel with twin racors and a drip-less stuffing box. The bottom is blister free and was primed and painted in June 2013, so her new Owners can sail away worry free. Don't miss this opportunity! Call for an appointment to see her!
