A true gentlemen's yacht, GRACE is truly one-of-a-kind, perfectly blending old world craftsmanship, classic yachting, and modern technology. Think Kevlar, teak and carbon fiber. Immaculately maintained and upgraded since launching with no expense spared for this amazing vessel. This is the yacht that inspired "Fifty feet Fifty knots".
- Hull & House
- GRACE's resin infused hull was created by the prestigious North End Composites facility in Maine. Tunnel drives with surface piercing props incorporate the latest technology as adopted by the US Navy SEALS for high speed attack vessels. The black Awlgrip finish on the hull is complimented by a natural teak cockpit sole, cream color upper deck and white cabin tops. Teak handrails along the cabin tops are custom finished with highly polished stainless steel bases and inlaid accent strips.
- Main Deck
- Surrounded by varnished teak and with natural teak decks underfoot, the aft deck is vast. Two aft-facing sea-green cushioned bench seats provide a comfortable place to watch the action on the back deck - whether it be water sports or deep sea fishing. Behind the seats, two fishing rod storage boxes are discreetly incorporated into the furniture. The cockpit contains two in-deck fish boxes plus a live bait well, all with lightweight, custom carbon fiber hatches. Storage for the collapsible 18 TACO outriggers and other equipment has been integrated into the below-deck access hatches. Two finely engineered RELEASE teak fighting chairs serve as a stable fishing platform or as a great place to catch a few rays! Recently fabricated modular seating can transform this fishing platform into a great entertainment area. Stainless steel tubing and varnished teak create full-width U-shaped seating. The aft deck can be completely shaded with a custom fabricated canvas Bimini top with 7' headroom. Secured with four stainless steel rods and utilizing the built-in fishing rod holders, the cover can be removed and stowed in minutes. In the wheelhouse, sea-green custom STIDD products include the Captain's chair with a double seat behind it, and an extra-wide copilot's chair. A matching settee on the port side encircles an exquisitely detailed teak high/low dining table. This air conditioned pilothouse has ample storage. Isinglass aft curtains create a great escape from the elements. With the touch of a button, hydraulics lift the wheelhouse furniture and seating area, providing the ultimate show-stopper - primary engine access and a stunning display of horsepower, stainless braid, and polished fittings.
- The two cabins aboard are dazzling with high gloss teak and stainless bull-nose detailing with a mirror finish teak & holly sole. The port side cabin has upper/lower bunks with a cedar-lined hanging locker and storage cabinets both above and below the bunks. Forward V-cabin has an over-sized Queen berth with LCD HD TV. Deep storage drawers at the foot of the bed, a built-in cabinet and hanging locker to starboard, provide ample storage. The starboard side head is outfitted with a custom carbon fiber sink with stainless inlay in a unique varnished teak and wenge counter top. Drawers and cupboards with stainless and wenge inlay detailing, utilize every available inch of space for storage. The shower is located forward and a large utility closet where the electronics are housed, is aft of the customized Sealand head.
- In keeping with the rest of this high tech vessel, 21st century materials have been used in GRACE's galley, making it both striking as well as efficient. Counter tops and back-splash are custom fabricated carbon fiber and punctuated with a deep, handmade carbon fiber sink. Equipment includes a 2-burner Gaggenau stove top, Haier stainless steel microwave, 2-drawer U-Line refrigerator and a 2-drawer Sub Zero freezer. Generous headroom, glossy teak cabinetry, and a white beadboard headliner make the galley bright.
