Vessel Walkthrough

"THE JOB" is a raised pilothouse motor yacht with flybridge, "country galley", three staterooms for owner and guests plus, accommodations for 2-3 crew in private quarters forward completely separate and apart from the owners and guests.

The aft-deck is covered by the extended boat deck above but is otherwise open with unobstructed views. A custom, semi-spiral staircase with rails allows easy access to and from the wide aluminum swim / boarding platform.

The flybridge and boat-deck just aft is accessed up from the raised pilothouse. This area seats 12-16 comfortably on built-in cushioned setees and is shaded by a bimini top. Additional features include a refrigerator as well as the upper helm station.

A Lounge/Bunny Pad for comfortable sunbathing is built into the trunk cabin just aft of the foredeck.

Main Salon

The Main Salon spans the full beam of the yacht and is extremely spacious. Entering from the aft-deck through a large clear Plexiglas sliding door there is an L-shaped settee to port with a coffee table in front. Across to starboard is the entertainment center. Forward on the starboard side is a wide stairwell that winds down to the owner & guest staterooms. A dining table and chairs for 8 are forward. Forward most and on centerline is an enclosed wet bar including icemaker and compact refrigerator/freezer. 


The raised pilothouse is situated forward of the salon and may be accessed from either side. It is aft of and above the galley. There is a leather bench seat aft of the helm, a varnished teak ship's wheel and the visibility from the pilothouse is excellent. A ladder leads up from here to the flybridge.


A passageway leads forward from the salon along the starboard side of the yacht, past the day head and raised pilothouse and to the Broward's ever popular 'country' kitchen on the main deck level. This area features a fully equipped and updated galley and a dining table with seating for 6-8 for more casual informal dining.

Galley appliances Include:

  • Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator/freezer
  • Whirlpool 4-burner cook top with stove and oven
  • GE electric profile microwave/convection oven
  • U-Line  under-counter refrigerator/freezer
  • Wine cooler
  • Whirlpool trash compactor
  • Kitchen Aid dishwasher
  • TV/VCR  

The Galley sole is simulated wood laminate

Master Stateroom

Located downstairs from the salon and forward of the foyer and guest stateroooms is the Master Stateroom, which spans the full width of the yacht's beam. This large spacious room provides ample area for a King-size bed and his & hers heads. Additional features of the Master Stateroom include two cedar lined closets, chest of drawers, night stands and reading lamps on either side of the bed.

Guest Stateroom 1

Situated all the way aft and on the port side, this stateroom features twin berths, private head with shower and a large hanging locker.

Guest Stateroom 2

Situated all the way aft and on the starboard side, this stateroom features a full-size bed, private head with shower and a large hanging locker.

Crew Quarters

Located forward of and down from the galley and comfortable for 2-3 persons, the crew's quarters are all the way forward in the yacht. This area consists of two cabins that share one head with stall shower. The head follows aft on the port side. The Captain's berth is a double berth just aft of the head and is directly across to port from the crew lounge.

Deck Details

Side doors, port and starboard lead out to side decks which then lead forward to the foredeck. The foredeck has a large padded lounge/bunny pad for sun bathing and a large compartment for storing deck and cleaning materials is beneath this. The windlass and controls are mounted here, as is the ship's bell.


One accesses the flybridge up a set of stairs from the pilothouse. The helm station is amidships forward and has an extra wide double bench seat just aft and a Bimini Top overhead. The helm station has been arranged for ease of operation and is well equipped. An aluminum radar arch spans the bridge and supports all of the yacht's antennas. Bench seating with Sunbrella covered cushions and storage lockers under, run aft down both sides of the flybridge and then, athwartships at approximately an amidships position. A locker aft of the bench seat houses a small refrigerator and sink.
