General Details

If you are looking for luxurious living aboard with all the room you can ask for in a STABILIZED boat that is as well maintained as it is beautiful, then GRASSHOPPER is a boat you will certainly want to consider. This perfectly appointed vessel has generous and beautiful outdoor areas for dining and relaxing (new fabric on cushions and new exterior canvas) and the most comfortable salon and dining room you can find on a boat of its size.  The interior has also been updated with new fabrics and furniture.  

The galley arrangement allows the cook to not only have incredible views while preparing meals but also to be a part of what's going on by opening the teak wood shutters that cover the pass through between the salon and galley.  The four staterooms, three baths, laundry room and stand up engine room complete the package.  Hull sides weregel coat spray painted in 2013 so the entire boat shines in more ways than one!  There is a custom teak staircase from the salon to the bridge that is not found on similar models.  

There have been many upgrades in the past two years that make this boat a great value. 


GRASSHOPPER has three living areas.  The top deck has a generous spaced flybridge with steering station, large U shaped settee with new fabric on cushions, a large dinghy deck that is easily accessible and is set up for a 13' Boston Whaler tender, a double bimini providing shade for the living area as well as the helmsman. The main living area is accessible by a staircase from the bridge and through the pilothouse/galley. It has a full glass windows that opens onto the back deck that is amply large for line handling, seating to watch the sunset and a gas grill for barbecuing. The generous salon windows are decorated with custom wood blinds that are color coordinated with the wood walls and lovely joinery work. The open floor plan boasts a voluminous salon with built in storage settee and a lovely dining room that seats six and can easily accommodate eight.  The dining area flows into the expansive galley with full size refrigerator freezer and granite counter tops.  There is a louvered pass through that can close off the galley for  a more intimate dining experience.  The galley then flows into the pilothouse with settee and curved stair case to the living quarters.  Salon is carpeted, galley and pilothouse have new (2013) wood floors.  The settee in the pilothouse was also reupholstered in 2013 in black leather to match the helm. Before the master at the bottom of the stairs from the salon, there is a door that allows entry to the laundry room and then on through to the engine room that has full stand up and walk around room. The living quarters has a very nice sized VIP guestroom forward with a queen island berth and ensuite bath.  Aft of the VIP are two nice sized guestrooms, one with a double and one with bunks.  These two staterooms share a bath that is accessible from both staterooms.  All staterooms have ample closet and storage space as well as lovely joinery work. The owner's stateroom is accessed by a staircase from the salon.  The huge master has a king berth, beautiful built in cabinetry and a corner settee.  There is a door from the master that goes through the laundry room to the stand up engine room.
