CHIMERA was built by Broward Marine in 1989 with refits in 1995 and 2015. She was the first Broward to be ABS certified and remains fully in class today. As soon as you walk on board you are immediately struck with her spaciousness, which is much more than you would expect from a vessel of this size. Her galley down configuration allows for an impressive Master suite forward on the main deck that features a King size bed, his and her en-suite bathrooms, vaulted ceiling, large lounge area, dressing table and walk-in cedar closet. The Starboard guest entrance opens into a nice sized lobby which leads either forward to the master suite, up to the bridge deck and sky lounge or aft to the dining salon. To starboard just before the glass door to the open main salon is a wine station containing wine racks, Kedco wine refrigerator and lighted glass display cabinet. A day head is also located in this area.
Walking aft into the full beam salon there is a dining table with seating for eight guests. The dining table also has an automated leaf which easily converts the table into a smaller more intimate table at the touch of a button. Built-in cabinetry finished in lacquered wood provides plenty of storage for china and linens as well as doubling as a buffet station for meal times. The main salon has soft comfortable seating recently re-upholstered in soothing cream hues and a large curved TV in the corner for movie nights. Through the aft deck doors is a spacious deck area with seating, dining and a fully equipped wet bar. The working deck area is tucked behind this deck above the swim platform and lazarette.
Back inside a curved staircase from the main salon takes you down to the lower deck where three guest suites are found off a central lobby. The forward starboard cabin has 2 twin beds and en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi Tub, the port side guest stateroom has a queen bed, hanging lockers, TV and en suite bathroom with Jacuzzi as well as a small sitting area. Aft is the VIP stateroom which offers a King size bed, large en suite bathroom with dressing table double sinks and Jacuzzi tub.
On the bridge deck behind the wheelhouse and Captain's office/bunk room is the sky lounge. Sure to be the hub for guests gathering for pre-dinner drinks. This area has a full wet bar with barstools, flat screen TV and comfortable lounge area. Heading aft to the boat deck which is designed to be the center of activity with plentiful sunning spaces as well as an optional awning for those seeking some shade.
Continuing upwards is the Sun deck with more seating beneath the yachts communication arch. Formally a spot that contained a Hot tub (plumbing and wiring though hidden remain intact) this space now allows for a fantastic view of the sunset or perhaps even 4th of July fireworks.
