THE NEXT PORT, 64' Cruiser 1966

In most aspects, looking beyond her original proven hull and vintage profile, THE NEXT PORT is an 11 year old yacht.  In 2001 a refit was undertaken which improved both layout and systems.   Safety, efficiency, comfort, and aesthetics were all important in the process and the results of this project have been overwhelmingly successful.   THE NEXT PORT is an outstanding yacht which will be vastly appreciated by her next owners.


In most aspects, looking beyond her original proven hull and vintage profile, THE NEXT PORT is an 11 year old yacht.  Refits in 2001 and 2008 were undertaken which improved both layout and systems.    Safety, efficiency, comfort, and aesthetics were all important in the process and the results of this project have been overwhelmingly successful.   THE NEXT PORT is an outstanding yacht which will be vastly appreciated by her next owners.
THE NEXT PORT can sleep eight in two double staterooms aft and two additional double cabins forward.  Throughout the vessel’s interior there is updated woodwork, flooring, countertops, and headliner with new recessed Xenon/Halogen Staluppi lighting.  The yacht’s interior woodwork is teak, cherry, maple and birdseye maple utilizing solid timbers, raised panel cabinetry, and fine veneer work.  Flooring treatments consist of custom wool carpet, and teak and holly soles throughout.  Fabrics are generally a combination of fine woven blends and Ultra-leather to compliment the woodwork. The yacht is beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable throughout.
Master stateroom
The Master Stateroom is aft, separated from the transom by a full sized lazarette accessed from the main deck level.  The woodwork in this stateroom is a lightly stained cherry.  The master berth is a king sized bed running athwartship against the port side bulkhead.  Flanking the berth are bedside cabinets with Corian tops and overhead reading lamps.  There is a built-in CD AM/FM player, and opposite the berth a TV/VCR player with overhead speakers.  For convenience, bookshelves have been tastefully built against the outboard bulkhead above the berth.  A full width hanging closet spans the aft bulkhead and to starboard is a bureau with drawers and a vanity with lighted mirror and a swivel mounted jump chair.  Forward to starboard is the master head with Corian counter and sink, stall shower, and porcelain bowl Headhunter toilet.  A mirrored medicine cabinet, tastefully designed by the owner, is positioned above the sink.
Guest stateroom
The Guest Stateroom is forward to port from the master.  It has twin lower berths and a bedside table between.  There are large drawers beneath the beds and a hanging locker is forward to port.  Opposite the guest stateroom to starboard is a head with Corian sink and counter, stall shower, porcelain Headhunter head, and mirrored medicine cabinet.  All the heads are well lighted and have teak and holly soles.
Forward and up a few steps from the aft stateroom area is the galley and informal dining banquette.  This area was all new in 2001 featuring raised panel maple cabinetry and earth toned granite counters.  The pedestal mounted dining table is maple with a compass rose inlay and hinged leaf.  The built-in Ultra-leather upholstered banquette has comfortable seating for 4-6 with an additional pull up chair.  Appliances are stainless steel clad and there is plenty of counter space.  The galley is bright and workable with the natural light afforded by large windows to port and starboard and forward, along with the Xenon overhead and indirect lighting.

Laundry area and forward staterooms
Forward and down 4 steps from the galley/dining level is a spacious laundry area with a built in, full sized Maytag washer and dry.  There is a large amount of storage built into an outboard cabinet system with laminated working countertops.  A supplemental Avante freezer is positioned on the aft bulkhead, adjacent to the engine room access hatch to port. Opposite the laundry area to starboard is an enclosed, upper/lower berth guest stateroom complete with a hanging closet.  From this cabin going a passage door opens into the forward head with Corian counter and sink, and porcelain bowl commode.  The sole is teak and holly and a mirrored medicine cabinet is above the sink. A second passage door from the head opens to the forward bunk cabin with upper and lower berths to port.  The upper bunk is generous in size and could serve as a double berth. Furnishings include reading lights and overhead is an opening hatch with tinted Lexan and a screen.  Opposite the berths are two hanging closets and forward is the stall shower with an opaque plexi-glass door.  Forward of the shower is the watertight anchor chain compartment containing 380’ of galvanized 3/8” BBB chain.     
Aft from the galley and up a few steps is the air-conditioned pilothouse with port and starboard sliding doors opening to the exterior side decks.  There are folding screen doors for the side door openings. As with the rest of the yacht, the pilothouse has been completely renewed with modern gauges, instruments, and electronics. The headliner in the pilothouse is Velcro fastened for easy removal for access to overhead wiring.  The original bench seat has been re-upholstered in ultra-leather and hinged to the port side bulkhead is a fold down teak chart table. A polished stainless and leather upholstered Stidd helm chair has been mounted at the helm console.  The console has been refit with new wood veneer and new cabinetry was built in for mounting the radar and plotter screens.  All new Stewart Warner engine instruments have been mounted into the original but refurbished Detroit Diesel instrument panel. Beneath the pilothouse bench seat is drawer storage for charts and navigational tools and additional storage is located to port beneath the helm console where there can also be found a new, electronics sub panel.  The vessel’s navigational electronics are powered up by a 24V bank of house batteries in the lazarette but there is also an independent back-up bank located in the engine room.  Full 360 degree visibility is afforded to the helmsman by virtue of the forward, side, and aft windows in the pilothouse.  Off center to starboard is the teak passage door to the aft deck salon.  A windowed insert in this door folds down revealing a screen and there is also an opening window behind the pilothouse bench seat for communication with the aft deck.

Aft salon
Next aft from the pilothouse is the teak decked aft salon which has a teak topped bar with refrigerator and ice-maker built-in along its forward bulkhead. The aft salon is furnished with an expandable round table and chairs for aft deck dining.  Teak framed wing doors are forward to port and starboard opening to the side decks.  There are also two sets of sliding side windows port and starboard, and an EZ2CYenclosure (new 2008) across the stern which enables the aft deck to be fully open when weather permits.  Wainscoating, trim, and valance boards in the aft salon are crafted of satin gloss teak as is the bar and cabinetry built-in along the forward bulkhead.

Electrical system
THE NEXT PORT was refit in its entirety in 2001.  A new main distribution panel was located in an existing closet recess to starboard opposite the main salon galley, adjacent to the steps to the pilothouse for easy access.  Sub-panels are positioned in the engine room and to port of the helm in the pilothouse.  The vessel operates primarily off the 220V AC and 24V DC systems with most equipment wired to run on these voltages for better efficiency and longer life.  Transformers are employed to accommodate equipment requiring 12V or 110V power. Batterybanks consist of three banks of 24V gel cell batteries in the lazarette, one for each main engine and a house bank of batteries.  In the engine room there are independent 12V gel cell batteries for each generator and a third 24V bank which serves as a back-up bank for navigational electronics.  Two 50 amp shore power cords, approximately 120’ in length, are deployed by the two Glendinning shore cable reel systems with access from beneath the brow on the foredeck.  Additionally there is a phone and cable TV connection located at this point.  In the engine room are (2) 20Kw Kilopak gensets, new in 2001 including Kilopak sound shields.   Additional sound control is achieved with the use of a customized exhaust system for the generators.  The vessel is protected from stray current and voltage spikes in the shore power supply with the use of isolation transformers and voltage booster regulators and a Kapac hull corrosion monitor.  Engine room lighting is exemplary, featuring 11 florescent 110V double light fixtures along with a 24V emergency lighting system.
Engine room
The engine room was stripped down to bare hull in 2001 to make way for a fully redesigned and updated layout.  The bilges were closely inspected, suspect metal replaced, and the entire bilge area painted with Awlgrip Matterhorn White.  Insulation is built into the overhead panels and outboard.  New exhaust tubes were installed from engine room to transom.  Shaft tubes were inspected and forward flanges rebuilt. The shaft stuffing boxes updated with Dripless Tides Marine Strong Seals.  A large tool box is built in forward and a work bench with vise is fixed atop the work bench. The fresh water system is unique in that it has a manifold transfer system enabling movement of water to or from any of the tanks, similar to the fuel system. The engine room is extremely well lighted and access to all equipment is superb.

Rebuild in 2001 included:  All mechanical systems renewed, all wiring replaced, all pumps, motors, fresh and waste water systems, raw water intake systems, shaft tube flanges; sand blasting of bottom and new barrier coat applied; rebuild water tank and baffle system; new gaskets in pilothouse windows; complete repainting.  At the same time, a major interior redesign was completed which moved the original, lower level galley up to the yacht’s mid-level creating a country kitchen with a large dinette adjacent.  The interior is finished in beautiful satin toned maple woodwork throughout with granite countertops in the galley and Corian in the heads.  Teak and holly soles are found in the galley and pilothouse as well as the heads.  This is a crisp, fresh yacht in all respects.
